Re: Gonzo.. 2001 Elantra
Hi there qaz1, the problem sounds like you might have a vaccum leak or the idle control vavle is defective, do hear any sucking noise around the intake and if not i would lean towards the idle control valve

2001 elantra gets 300 miles per tank of gas regular unleaded
slow to respond when accelerated 105 K original miles recently purchased
no check engine lights most parts look original engine revs up but tranny seems slow to respond?
as this is a hydraulic system i suggest you start of by following a proper bleeding procedure the peddle should return to normal if not check pivot points for abnormal wear .worst case cenario replace clutch
2001 Elantra WITHOUT fuel injection? You are mistaken. It sounds like a BAD TPS (Throttle Position Sensor). Is there a "Check Engine" light?
If so, retrieve the diagnostic trouble code (DTC) and tell me what it is. Otherwise, you can go to http://www.hmaservice.com/ and register (Vehicle VIN) and you'll have access to technical info about the vehicle (manuals, service bulletins, wiring diagrams, etc.). Please remember to RATE my response..... thanks.
If it's not a serpetine belt, max deflection of 3/4" on longest segment should be safe, don't make alternator belt tight as a drum or you will burn out alternator bearings quickly. If it has serpentine belt, the spring tensioner should keep the belt properly tensioned unless it's worn out.
It only needs to be tight enough to not slip, too loose will squeal and you will have to tighten, to tight will kill alternator and you will spend $$.
