Hyundai Terracan

Please help and advise. I have an automatic and whilst driving along the car seems to loose power, it is for only a few seconds, slows down and then picks up again. It is only happening now and then. No lights come on the dashboard to say anything is wrong. I took it to a garage for a service and lots of filters where changed etc and the garage did comment that there was not much oil. This has now been rectified. I did think that if the car was low in oil surly a light would come on to tell me. Any ideas on the loss of power. Thank you from lady driver who just wants to get to work in her lovely car

Answers

Bryan. I have found a damaged water hose behind the motor coming from the fire wall. The cause of the fault was abrasion from the motor and/or other components. Not easy to remove; would suggest cutting out damage and internal pipe insertion to stop leek and to save money. I am trying to remove the valve cover from my manual diesel 2006 Terracan [52000k's] to investigate a noise in the upper rear of the motor. so far no joy. Good Luck. Noel noel from Australia

I have a 2.5 Diesel Terracan, make 2001. My question concerns the law gear; there are two options: automatic and low. How does the automatic operate because all the mechanics I consulted insisted that the car is not on automatic low gear, even though the manual indicator is put on it. The electronic check-up also confirms this.

Hi guys, I have a 2001 Terracan 3.5 auto, electrics started playing up, when I press the brakes cd player would reset itself and when I use high beam the engine dies. Sometimes the central locking doesn't work so the car won`t start. I replaced the battery and the alternator twice but it`s still doing it, the door light gets much weaker when it plays up and 10 minutes later the car is back to normal. Can someone help please? Thanks.

Answers

Hi, I`ve had the same problem. Did the same by changing battery and alternator but problem remained. Since then my starter died and replaced it along with the solenoid. The problem is now gone. Probably faulty wiring at the starter. Sergio from Netherlands Antilles

Shane Matthews, Australia

Hyundai Terracan

Hi I have a 2006 3.5ltr petrol auto terracan and it is cutting out as if the key has been turned off for a second then back on. Sometimes it cuts out for longer but doesn't stall completely. This always happens within the first ten minutes of driving but doesn't seem to do it after that. It doesn't miss or anything. No codes are coming up and I have replaced plugs, coils, fuel filter, cam sensor and the injectors have been done and timing been changed. Auto electricians can't fault it and mechanics are stumped. I have spent $1000 on it and it's no better. It has been suggested the ECU could be faulty but the EFI specialist I spoke to doesn't think it will be that. I would really appreciate any suggestions or help anyone can give. Thanks in advance Shane.

Hi, my 2006 Hyundai Terracan diesel auto was losing power on hills towing our caravan, revs were getting up tp 3000. The car was slowing down on hills so I pulled over and stopped. Problem was when stopped the car wouldn`t rev up to move the car further off the highway. After idling for 5 to 10 minutes the car seemed ok again and able to get high revs again. Drove home with keeping revs 2000 and under. Why wouldn`t the car get high revs after first stopped? Thank you

Hi guys, A friend just bought a Terracan 2.9CRTD manual for me but the 4x4 isn't working. It drives fine in 2 wheel drive but when you switch it to 4x4L it drives fine until you stop, then when you pull away it revs but doesn't pull away, it kind of makes a tiny effort but there's nothing there... A mechanic friend thinks it could just be a hole in the pipe that ensures a vacuum to the diaphragm.. least I think that's what he said. Any ideas gratefully received, save up for the car and straight away its bust.
