Having problems with your 2003 Hyundai Tiburon ?

Engine miss? My tiburon has a miss or a bucking when first releasing the clutch and in 1st and 2nd gears at lower rpm. I just had the timing belt replaced and no check engine lights are present. It is as if the engine is not getting fuel or air then it smooths out and runs fine. Any idea how I should troubleshoot this?

Answers :

Go to youtube, in the search window type in "tiburon slave cylinder clutch mod" this should solve your problem. also do some searches about the flow restricter"the spring and plastic that you will remove"
An engine miss should mean that one or more pistons are not firing. Maybe you \015\012just need new spark plugs and/or spark plug wires. How long has it been since \015\012you changed them?
More than 60k miles?
If you don't fix it, it will get \015\012worse and your car will **** more gas.

I have an engine miss,****,buck at about 45 mph when accelerating lightly. It runs fine if it down shifts to third gear. The car has 116k miles on it. I don't get any codes. Had it to the transmission shop, hooked up a scanner and took it for a ride - no tranny problem, it is an engine miss. So far I have installed new spark plugs (badly worn),new fuel filter (it was clogged) new air filter, cleaned throttle body and MAF sensor, checked fuel pressure at fuel rail (normal). What next???


Change plug wires next and put in some SeaFoam. This sounds like a tune up issue... just run though the paces. ... 2000 Mercury Grand Marquis

Missfire This car has a bad miss when first started when cold. It idles rough and sometimes dies, surging up and down. After it runs a while it clears out and idles up at a normal rate. Then I will start to feel a little miss, and the idle gets low going down the road and it loses power. It always starts back up and goes on. It has 188000 miles, new plugs, air filter, fuel filter and fuel injection cleaner run through. The check Engine light has flashed on and off for a year or more. Do you have


Locate you computer (right front kick panel) and tap on it with a pen while the car idles... Also flex it back and forth with your hands to see if the car runs rough or quits... You may need a new one. ... 1988 Oldsmobile Delta 88

I have a 2000 chevy limited edition (old body style) Tahoe that wont crank unless you put fuel in the air intake throttle body. The fuel pump whirls and I've changed the fuel filter, fuel regulator and the fuel relay. When the truck does crank after the fuel in the air intake the truck runs great. no missing or skipping from take off. No "service engine light" activity. but the moment you turn off the engine the same problem accurs.


You could be having a bad pressure regulator ,it seems to be wasted now. ... 2000 Chevrolet Silverado

Runs fine after getting the fuel injectors cleaned for a day or two and then the same problem back again. Check engine light has been On & OFF since then but since last 12 days it has been ON consistently and starts flashing sometimes. Got codes checked 4 months ago and it said cyl 6 misfire and now it says cyl 3

The check enginge light,ABS light, brake and low fuel light come on and off at will. A recent miss in the running of the engine led us to the fuel pressure regulator. All spark plugs were replace in the past 2 months, yet the mechanic told me the plugs were fouled out as well. I know these are not all related, but the fuel pressure regulator has me puzzled. Where can i go to get detailed description/pictures of where this is and what it does, what typically cause these to fail, etc. Thanks.


The fuel pressure regulator adjust the fuel pressure from 30 psi to 50 psi, full fuel is with no vachum or wide open throttle toes tickling the Rad. cap at idel it's 30 PSI but I don't know if you have a Vac or electric operated one. the regulator is ... 2001 Chevrolet Silverado 1500

99 gmc sierra 6 cyl, and it starts fine, but after running it misses, when i accelerate it starts to miss and back fires horribly and engine light blinks. i think too much fuel is getting to it but just cant tell! Oh yea I also flushed the fuel and replenished the tank with fuel cleaner but it still misses extremely bad! can someone help?


It's more likely to be very lean--look for fuel delivery problems. Replace the fuel filter and check the fuel system pressure at the test port (looks like a tire valve) on the fuel rail just over the injectors. You should see about 45 PSI, anything m ... 2000 GMC New Sierra 1500

My Escalade is getting poor gas mileage. The service engine soon light is on. I took it to a shop and they hooked it up to a computer and was told it was a generic fuel system code. They suggested I put a new air and fuel filter in, which I have done. The light is still on. It runs really rough when it first starts, but other than that is running fine. Any ideas on what the problem could be?

Concentrate on code 1128, which is basically telling you the engine has been running too lean for a while now, so that explains the misfire codes, which is the rest of them. The main causes of those symptoms is usually a vacuum leak, plugged fuel fil ... 2000 Hyundai Accent

My car keeps stallin out it will drop below 1000 rpms when idlein at a light or even while drivin the check engine light came on today and they said it can be 4 differnt possiblities either the oxygen sensor/defective, ignition misfire/repair, fuel injector problem, or if bank 1 and 2codes set togethersuspect fuel pressure or maf (mass air flow) sensor then today it would not get any power to it as i had my foot on the gas pedal it was drivng as if it was just coasting. what could it be? i have


Its not the mass flow , if it was that it would idle high the low then high then low and so on. not the oxygen sensor either that would turn on your engine light and kill your mpg but it would not stall the car unless it is flooding it "do you smell ... 1998 Chevrolet Malibu

I have a 2000 Grand Caravan with the 3.8 V6. It surges and spits back through the intake when you really get after it. This is anything above 3,000 RPM. It runs good on flat ground 60 MPH or below. I've put in new plugs,wires,coil pack, thermostat, and air filter. Tomorrow i'm looking into changing the fuel filter and possibly fuel pump. The check engine light is NOT on and there are no pending codes. What are your thoughts? ECM maybe? I forgot to add that it is only getting about 15 MPG
