Question about Hyundai Sonata
Good evening, I have a 1998 hyudai sonata and the engine races while I am driving the car. When i put it in park the engine revs even louder. Can you tell me what it could be? Thanks
This seems to be a classic case of "disentegrating exhaust system syndrome." There is either a hole(s) somewhere in your exhaust system or there is a leak somewhere. Probably the easiest way to tell where the noise is coming from is to start your car and just listen around in the engine bay, under the car, and at the muffler. Also do a visual inspection of the exhaust system to see if you can see any holes in the piping. I have also seen hairline cracks in the exhaust header itself that can cause the loud ticking noise that can be a little tricky to track down.

you need to check the clutch cable is not binding with gas pedal cable. you need to have some body to help you to look the operation at engine area. let me know if this help you

replace the idle air control valve.(on the bottom of the throttle body) may be easier to remove the throttle body and turn in upside down to remove the idle air control valve and hoses. be sure not to pinch the gasket. after u do that be sure to replace any coolant that may have came out. then, start the car, rev the car to 3000 rpms till the radiator fan comes on , then let the vehicle idle for 20 - 30 mins . the computer should relearn the idle. local honda dealer should have the valve in stock,

It sounds like your brake light switch is stuck on. You can try to pull it out or just replace it as they aren't very expensive and pretty easy to replace. It is located on the brake pedal and sometimes they just go bad. Weird that you have two at the same time. Good luck and thanks for using FixYa!
