Engine not specified
Flex Pipe was damaged. Engine light was on with Error code for SLow response at O2 sensor at lower stream. Hyundai said to replace whole pipe including catalytic converter, too expensive, flex welded at Midas.
Oil was leaking from top of engine (rocker Gasket was leaking.)
car was making an exhaust leak sound, then I got a check engine light. I brought the car to Midas they said that the flex hose had a break and that was causing the exhaust leak. The flex hose was covered under the Hyundai Warantee.
Replaced leaking radiator.
Car would drive fine for a while then go into "limp mode" Also, noticed that the speedometer would go crazy every once-in-a-while. Replaced O2 sensors, spark plugs and wires. Problem persisted. Replaced input speed sensor. Problem gone.
Trouble starting and hesitation/studdering when accelerating. Engine would sometimes go into "limp mode". Wouldn't go above 15mph. I replaced the ISS, didn't work, so then I replaced the fuel filter and fuel pump. Runs perfectly.
AC went out, turned out that the car was running hot which caused the computer to turn off the AC. Replaced thermostat, upper and lower hoses, added coolant and recharged AC.
Fuel Pressure Regulator replacement. Replaced under warranty.
Fuel Pressure Regulator replacement. Dealer replaced as a precaution, I had not experienced any problems. Replaced under warranty.
Diesel pump had a slight leak which made starting the car difficult in the mornings. Removed pump and took to a diesel engine specialist who replaced all the seals. Hyundai dealer had told me I needed a new pump at $1200! Pump now refitted. All OK
