Re: Ask a Hyundai Technicain!

I have a question. I have an 04 V6, Automatic. My transmission feels like its surging. Its not violenty shaking the car, but I can feel it in the steering wheel, and drivetrain. It is when I am accelerating moderately and heavily, not when accelerating slowly. It is hard to explain, and about 3-4 months ago, the Hyundai dealer put there HI-SCAN on my computer and it didn't say anything was wrong with the Trans. It is boggling me as to what it could be. I feel like my car is slower and less responsive than other tibs I have driven that were also V6, and automatics. Any thoughts?

Re: Ask a Hyundai Technicain!

I have a few for you.. well 4....

1. why is it when i go to start my car when its cold and if i go to start it right away without letting a few of the chimes past it wont turn over right away?

2. why do some brands of HID's make the gauges go dead on the tiburon for a second when you turn the HID's on, even if you are using a relay pack?

3. why is it when you come to a brief stop, NOT a FULL STOP with the tiburon V6 and then hit the gas the car doesnt down shift right away and it kinda hesitates when you hit the gas to go.

4. why is my damn interior drivers side handle so squeaky when i open the door.. when i put WD-40 on the inside parts the noise went away and came back 20 mins later.

thanks,
Rob. :)

Re: Ask a Hyundai Technicain!

Ok, this is a dumbass question. I installed cupholder LED's. I touched a wire I shouldn't have and blew a fuse. I had no insturment lights. You would assume the fuse that blew would be the one marked cluster. WRONG> It was the r/tail light fuse. Now, splain to me what the hell that fuse has to do with the dash lights please. Makes no sense to me man.

Are you AUTO?
I'M Auto and my does same thing:3_frown:

make sure your rims arent bent, you atill have good tread left on the tires and if the rims are okay,i suggest a balance first, THEN a allignment.
least amount of money first then work up to the more excpensive...

1. im not really sure without inspecting it, but possibly engine milage and as you stated being in the cold it may take a little longer to crank over, this is normal.
2.the alternator does not have the ability to run all the voltage that the hids AND the rest of the electrical components at the same time, thats why they (HIDS) flifker brighter at startup and then even out AFTER the load is evenly distrributed...
3.not sure, you need somone to inspect and assess.
4.remove interior panal and inspect, remidie as needed, it takes some effort but i assure you thatsomthing is rubbing and will be an easy fix.

Re: Ask a Hyundai Technicain!

I've got one for you chase


Why does my speedo die and revert to 0 when im driving down the road?

And its done this pre-boost mind you.
check the Speed sensor (mounted on the transmission behind the T.B) possibly during installation of your Turbo, the wire clip might not be connected fully, maybe wires melted OR internal defect,
mind you since you DONT have an auto IT WONT be a imput or output speed sensor (only for automatics) the sensor is a plastic gear that looks like a upside down christmas tree, its white plastic....
Chase
Ask a tech in your area to inspect on the side.
this is the only reason why its doing this (if it is as you stated "somtimes"

Re: Ask a Hyundai Technicain!

i should have specified, its an auto.

thats what i figured as well but I have no idea how to inspect these and was trying to avoid another dealership visit.... last time they told me it was due to my *burnt* tranny fluid.... never fixed a thing.

Re: Ask a Hyundai Technicain!

well pull out the pidstick for the tranny, look at the fluid level and color, also smell it, does it look brown/black, does it smell burnt, is it low, if its not red, (not pink not rown deep red colour) then it needs a flush, have you ever done one, i suggest you do one if its needed, ALWAYS use OEM auto fluid, itll mess it up if you dont....

Re: Ask a Hyundai Technicain!

Ok, so sometimes when I start to pull of, the car hesitates (like its misfireing) but then slams into gear and goes. It almost feels like a neutral drop in an auto, besides the fact that its a 6sp SE. It mostely does it in 1st or maybe 2nd when im starting to drive or downshifted to go thru a turn then accelerate thru the turn. Any suggestions? I have a b&m short shifter and shifter bushings but I dont think that would do it.EDIT: I have 18,000 miles on it and its mostely highway with atlittle bit of stop and go and a very little bit of racing

white lithium grease, not wd-40. wd-40 is a light petrolium base therefore will evaporate fairly quickly. any kindof grease will do but white lithium wont smell and is fairly easy to work with. just a small dab and smere should do the trick.
