Question about 2005 Hyundai Elantra

1 Answer

This morning when I left for work there was hesitation when I pressed the gas pedal and then it jolted forward; I thought perhaps I needed transmission fluid, bought some, put it in and it ran fine. I am trying to read the fluid stick; at the bottom is the word "cold" and then there is a bend in the stick, then straight for about an inch and then bends again; my boss told me as long as it reads between the two "bends" it has sufficient fluid; I can't get a read and wonder if it's suppose to be cold... help!! :-)

Your boss is more right than wrong, meaning that as long as it is in between the lines, you are fine, but you really want to be full. When you first crank the car and have not driven it, the level you are looking for would be the cold level marker, and after you have warmed it up and driven it, then you would want to look at the hot marker.

I have a Toyota Fielder car,but I face a challenge each time I stop up hill and want to drive forward, the vehicle rolls backwards despite being in D-drive. What should I be doing to avoid this?

This is when you need to let the clutch out just enough to stop the backwards roll when you take your foot off the brake, then you can move to the gas pedal and when pressing the gas pedal you can release the clutch all the way to get moving. IT is a matter of practice and timing..

You mean it will crank but not start ? Do you have normal compression, spark and fuel pressure ?
If the timing belt broke you won't have compression on all cylinders.

It should show up with a P code as it misfires. If it doesn't, check the engine temperature sensor and O2 sensor.

Sluggish when pressing gas pedal

My guess is a compression problem - which could be caused by something simple and cheap to fix or as serious as a new head gasket.

Car idles fine but will not go over 2000 rpm's when the gas pedal is pressed. Lots of hesitation and some backfiring when gas pedal is pressed.

We need to know more about what car and engine you have, but the primary suspect is that the timing belt has slipped and things are out of time.

When I press on the gas pedal there is hesitation. It feels like the vehicle is forcing to go forward.

Jetta has no gas pedal pressure

If this car has a carb, the most common problem is the auto choke mechanism get siezed/ gummed up. Remove tha carb plenum in the morning before starting. Depress the accelerator pedal and check that the flap on top of the carb has closed.
