Question about Hyundai Motor 2002 Sonata

2 Answers

Idling after coming back from a ride, I put it in neutral for a minute, the engine started to rev up to 3000 then down to 2000 then up to 3500 then down to 1500 as if I was doing it, but my foot was completely off the gas pedal. It happened 3-4 times between yesterday and today. Any idea? Thanks in advance

Sounds like a Mass air flow sensor problem. It can usually be cleaned or be replaced. Is prolly 200-300 dollars so i would try to clean it first. But be VERY careful. they are very sensitive. Its prolly sonna be right past where your air filter is located. It has a wire with kinda big plug on it.

Thank you very much, I used a q-tip with some rubbing alcohol and it worked great, It hasn't done it since. Thanks again for saving me $275.

I just wanted to write this cause the rating is locked for me.

Can rev up the RPM,s in nuetral but it will only idle when its in grear.What do u think


Your car is probably in the limp mode meaning it won't allow you to rev the engine with it in gear. I suspect something majorly is wrong with your tranny. Limp modes are put into effect when you car senses trouble so it may still be fixable without too any $$$. When was the last time you serviced the transmission ( oil and filter change?)

Did you check for vacuum leaks? Get a can of some flammable brake cleaner and start spraying it near all of the vacuum lines and see if it idles down. Also spray it around the intake when you hit the right spot it should idle down. Then you know where your problem is.

if you have'nt replaced those spark plugs and wires lately, you need to.and also, lucas fuel treatment, in my personal opinion,is the very best for unclogging fuel lined and injectors.it being below a 1999 model and your check engine light is on, you can have it coderead for free if you're near anautozone or advance automotive parts store. they will code read it and tell you why that check engine lights coming on.hope this helps and thank you for choosing fixya.com

Vw polo 1997 999cc often idles eratically


First- lets change engine coolant sensor/ECT/ and you will be very surprised.Black head with four pins.Be very carefull when change it because there is pressure into coolant system.First-open slowly the cap of engine coolant tank.Then tighten again to safe coolant.Unplug the sensor,remove the pin and pull out the sensor.If the "O"ring/old one/ is still inside-take it out.

Speedo will cut out when driving


Sounds like your "speed sensor" is failing. When it fails it will cause irregular shift patterns and engine idle speeds.
