Top 20 2008 Hyundai Elantra Questions & Answers


Could be worn volume-control (potentiometer), dust/oxidizing on wiper-track of same control.
Buy contact-cleaner spray,such as Servisol, McKenic, Kontakt or similar.
If linear slider-type volume, attach tubular nozzle/guide thingy to spray head, squirt cleaner into slot while zooming back & forth (stereo OFF).
This scrubs the contacted surface while cleaning.
If rotary type, remove stereo, open cover, locate volume control, squirt into control while dialling up and down.
Allow a few minutes to evaporate (quick dry spray is best).

bleed out the air and get the engine running, then decide if the price is good or not
still even if the engine and transmission is faulty requiring replacements , , as the body is in good condition the extra cost may still make it a good buy compared to used car card prices

It sounds like you may have a vacuum leak, or 2
Check all hoses around gearbox and engine to ensure they are all a snug fit and do not appear worn or split. You can check for vacuum leaks by spraying a mist in the direct area and watch to see if it gets sucked in. Move each hose around while at idle to see if the revs change.
Good Luck I hope it helps

You need to check for fault codes and also for fuel pressure.

Your air conditioner comes on to dry the air in defrost mode. It clears the window and removes the moisture (humidity) that is causing the windows to fog up in the first place.

use a scan tool to reset the ECM first as the CPU program in the ECM may be corrupted from the battery change

Usually it indicates the alternator is not charging. Get yourself a volt meter that plugs into the cigarette lighter. Read the voltage before and after you tart the car. The voltage should go up from 12v to 13/14v. Keep an eye on it. If it slowly goes down, then the alternator needs to be checked.

Code 700 is a generic code that means a problem has occured with the transmission control module, and code 760 is for a shift solenoid failure.
The shop would use a repair manual to test the circuit for the shift solenoid. If the solenoid is faulty, it would need to be replaced and the module reset.

Tighten until snug and then 3/4 turn. Check for leaks after system is bled

P0170 Fuel Trim Malfunction (Bank 1) OBD-II Trouble Code Technical Description Article by Dale Toalston ASE Certified Technician Fuel Trim Malfunction (Bank 1) What does that mean? This code is one that surfaces with certain makes of automobiles more than others. In writing this article I've added Mercedes-Benz-specific info since it seems that M-B (and VW) are most prone to having this P0170 surface along with misfire codes or other fuel trim codes. P0170 means there was a malfunction in the computer's control of the air:fuel ratio. It also indicates that the fuel trims reached their limit of adding fuel while trying to compensate for a actual or perceived rich condition. When the fuel trims reach their rich correction limit, the PCM (Powertrain Control Module) sets a P0170, indicating a problem or malfunction in the fuel trims. It may also have a P0173 referring to the same malfunction but on bank two. Symptoms Symptoms of a P0170 DTC may include: MIL (Malfunction Indicator Lamp) Illumination Start and stall Poor fuel economy Black smoke at tailpipe Hesitation/misfire at idle or under load Causes Potential causes include a vacuum leak, unmetered air leaks Fuel saturated engine oil Leak in turbo air charge hoses (if equipped) Possibly bad O2 sensor (If Mercedes, may require adaptation with M-Benz compatible scan tool.) Oil contamination in MAF connector or O2 sensor connectors. Also check ignition coils, cam and crank sensors, and oil sensor for leakage contributing to oil intrusion in wiring harness. Defective MAF (Mass Air Flow) sensor (especially on Mercedez-Benz and other European autos. There are a lot of problems with aftermarket MAF sensors.) Defective fuel pressure regulator Leaking camshaft adjuster solenoids (Mercedes-Benz). NOTE: for some Mercedes-Benz models there is a service recall for a crankcase vent hose located under the intake manifold. It should be checked for leaks/cracking and also operation of check valve in the hose. The check valve should flow only one way. Possible Solutions It should be stated right off the bat that the most common problem associated with this code is the MAF sensor or air mass meter. This is especially the case with Mercedes-Benz and Volkswagen and other European cars. At time of writing, you don't normally see this code with American-made cars, and minimally with Asian, and, to be honest, I have no idea why. It appears to me that the PCM (powertrain control module) logic used by some European car manufacturers to set a P0170 (or P0173) fault code simply isn't used by American vehicle manufacturers. It is more common to see P0171, 0174, 0172, 0175 codes set with regard to fuel trim malfunctions on American cars. There is very little information on the setting conditions for a P0170, or P0173, but what information that is available almost seems to be a redundancy of the P0171,4,2 & 5 setting conditions. I'm sure there's a reason for it, but I can't get anyone to tell me what that is. The similarities between them may be why we don't see this code surface on domestic vehicles very often. It's simply unnecessary. So, simply put, if you have a P0170, your PCM noticed that the fuel trims reached their rich correction limit. Basically it's adding fuel to try to compensate for a lean condition, real or perceived. If you have this code and access to a scan tool, observe the MAF sensor reading in grams/sec. The reading will be different for different automobiles, so get a good spec. I'm going to stick with what would be normal for a Mercedes (1.8L), since they have the bulk of the trouble. Expect to see at idle 3.5-5 g/s (ideally). At 2500 RPMs with no load it should be between 9 and 12 g/s. On road test, at WOT (wide open throttle) it should be 90 g/s or well above. If it's not in specs, replace it. Be careful of Ebay MAFs. Often they don't work according to OE specifications. If the MAF checks out and there is no oil intrusion at the connector, check fuel pressure and ensure that there are no leaks at the regulator internally or externally. Check all vacuum hoses and confirm none are cracked, disconnected or missing. Make sure there are no vacuum leaks at the intake manifold gaskets or tears in the air supply hose. If the engine is turbo charged, be sure the hoses are in good condition and have no leaks. Leaking turbo pressure hoses could cause a rich condition. Inspect the condition of crankcase vent hose under intake manifold and operation of check valve in the hose. (In the "What are the causes?" section) If there doesn't appear to be any problems with the fuel pressure, MAF or vacuum hoses, then inspect the O2 sensor connectors for oil intrusion. A bad O2 sensor could cause a P0170, or P0173. Repair cause of oil leak and replace oil-fouled O2 sensor.

Remove all the floor trim pieces the console, and the seats.

Many things can cause this. O2 sensor, vacuum leaks, wiring,and more. It needs to go on a scanner to isolate the problem. It could be $3.00 worth of vacuum hose or several hundred dollars for gasket replacement.

Sometimes local police can help; otherwise you may have to call a locksmith.

Have someone pull the handle as you hit the center front of the hood with your hand. This helps to pop them up to unlatch them. Once open lube it till everything is loose again. May even raise the latch a bit. They are adjustable. If it still doesn't open, then you have to get under the bumper, with a long screw driver or pry bar and push the latch over. Look where the cable goes to the latch. You need to push it towards the cable.
