Hyundai has electric assisted power steering, not hydraulic, and I know the
new Sonata has some steering issues. Better bring it into Hyundai especially
since you're still under warranty. Don't fool with this, since the car is extremely
difficult to steer if you loose the assist.

Eps in hyundai accent 2007

EPS is Electronic Power Steering.

When the light comes on, it is a warning that the Electronic Power Steering system is having a problem.

The increased force you have to use, is because the EPS is not assisting you as much as it was before, if at all.

Here is a link to a video explaining the basic operation of the electronics at youtube.

My eps light is on my in my 2008 Elantra. And my check engine light came on. Now my car wont change gears properly.

The "EPS" stands for Electronic Power Steering. There are a couple Technical Service Bulletins related to the EPS system published by Hyundai. The only way to find out if any of these bullitins apply to your problem, you must FIRST scan your onboard computer network to gather the fault codes that set when the system turned the light on. Then again, there may also be a problem that is not addressed by ANY of the bulletins.....Proper diagnosis required.

The same thing applies for your Check Engine light. There are currently over 600 possible reasons why the check engine light could be coming on in that vehicle. Many of these possible faults can cause your engine and transmission to go into "reduced power" or "limp-in" mode and cause the symptoms you are describing. The ONLY way you are going to find out which possible reason is causing the light to come on is with a computer network scan....Unless you really want to work your way through over 600 "GUESSES".

Why does the car drag when changing gears? the various lights on the dashboard are blinking and it shows EPS

EPS indicates Electronic power steering warning light.---------The power steering needs to be inspected.The power steering pump, the power steering fluid, the power steering hose ,power steering belt and pulley. Get your car scanned by the dealer or at local car garage.That will be much helpful.As you will receive codes, as per codes you can replace the part or get the part checked.A fault in the wiring loop causes it to short on the steering column.This problem is very much noticed in Hyundai cars.-------

This will solve the problem or point you towards the cause of problem. Thank you for using fixya.

Power steering fails, shifts poorly, jerks, stalls

07-02-32-007B This bulletin is something that should be checked by your dealer. Your eps module or eps motor maybe both are at fault. This may be covered under the powertrain warranty.

As for the air temp, The sensor is behind the right front light. It is the most common problem.
