Question about 2000 Hyundai Accent

1 Answer

2000 Hyundai Accent standard transmision stalls when clutch is pushed in

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

2002 accent stalls and has a rough idle

During rough idling, when the clutch is released due to high rpm of the engine, the engine may stalls. Another possible reason due to quick release of clutch pedals.

First tune the idling of the engine. Look for the cleaness of the air filter, Fuel lines are clear for free flow. Check the spark plugs for free from carbons and gaps are maintained correctly.

When slowing down the car change to appropriate gears and netural the gears when about to stop.

Why will my 2001 hyundai accent not idle? you have to push the gas to start it, and if you push the break it stalls? whats wrong with it?

its maybe your spark plug wires. when they get old, they cn cause this problem. in the meantime, put your car in neutral when breaking and give it a little gas at the same time.
