You can try to check it with an electrician. Maybe there is some problem with the alternator or there is an electric ground on the car

Recently purchased. MIL light on - Scan tool Shows code P0171 $07E8 Monitor / GenericLean Trim.


First of all, what kind of car is this? Second, this is a lean code. Now, if you really have no intake leaks or restricted fuel issues, one possibility is scewed maf signal during higher rpms. If you can, monitor your Short Term fuel trim at normal highway speeds.If it is high, then and lower at idle, you may need a maf sensor.
Hope this helps

High rpm at highway speed


No idea why you would drive that fast,
but 2800 is about right at that speed

Did you just get the car & never own one that
went to 2800 at that speed

Tap the brake around 55 & see if the rpm goes up,
indicating that torque converter lock-up is working

Don't do that at 70 mph

I have a 2005 Hyundai Elantra with an air conditioning problem. The air conditioner works intermittently. As far as I can tell, it works well on extended trips that involve highway driving, but works...


You describe a typical 'cooling fan' problem. When moving through the air, the AC operates normally, but when stopped in traffic, it doesn't... correct?

What is the overdrive for is it to down shif or to go up a hii


overdrive is for highway driving, lowers your engine rpm's and saves gas-allows the engine to not work as hard at higher speeds. Not desirable in around town traffic, and if you can lock it out if you do most driving under 45mph, a good idea so you don't 'lug' your engine.

I`m having boilover when I slow down or stop.


Sounds like the cooling fan or the circuit is faulty. When you are traveling at highway speeds, it runs fine? But around town it gets hot? If that is correct, it is probably the cooling fan or circuit. Could be a switch or fan motor faulty.

Overheating when on highway or using air conditioner


The condenser for the ac is not getting enough air,look for the reason,look in front of the car at the radiator,see if there is something restricting air flow threw the radiator and condenser.

Should you drive in overdrive all the time or just out on the highway


Hi. if your driving time consist of many hours in the city, it will not be required for you to use OD. You can use the regular D in the city, or around town. Using the regular D in town will decrease the unnecessary down shifting that will occur in OD if you are driving in town. The OD function is best used on the Highway, during long periods of travel.

It is also best to use the regular D when pulling up hill, or off road travel, as well.

What is the proper way of using overdrive,how and when you have to use it?


If you are not climbing steep hills or towing, leave it on all the time. Turn it off for low speed/high strain driving like towing, climbing and off-roading.

Air conditioner works but not blowing out the vents


Check the air directing servo motors under the glove box. they are 2 black boxes about 3"x3". you have to clean the contacts of grease with contact cleaner spray or alcohol.
