Question about 2000 Hyundai Accent
I will start it up and it idles 750-900 RPM. When I start to drive it, if I were to push the accelerator all the way to the floor, it bogs down in 1st gear and 2nd gear. If I floor it in 3rd, 4th, or 5th, it bogs down and sputters. When I approach a stop sign and put my foot on the clutch, the RPM's go straight to "0". After driving for a while, it will not idle. I have adjusted the idle position screw and was able to get it to keep idling with 1.5K RPM but, after driving 55mi, It stalls again. My check engine light is always on and begins flashing at 30, 40, 50, 60mi per hour. If traveling at the same speed for a while, the check engine light stops flashing. But, if I change speeds, it begins flashing again. I've had multiple tune-ups, throttle valve sensor replaced with no luck. Milage=165,000, I've tried fuel cleaners, injector cleaners and had no improvement. The car isn't worth that much anymore. I don't want to spend more than it's worth to get it fixed. Any suggestions would be helpful. Read somewhere about an EGR valve? Could that be it? Where is it located? Thanks in advance, -Brooks Webb
With driving with the check engine light flashing u may have done damage too the catiltic converter check that when u reve the engine there is alot of exhaust flow it should push your hand from the tail pipe (be carefull exhaust will be hot)
It would be helpful if u could list the codes you can buy a code reader from any automotive parts store relitvly cheap
