Why am I getting black smoke from my exhaust more so when I'am towing,

Answers

The black smoke indicates either too much fuel or too little air. Using a lower gear makes your turbo pump more air. aj seaman from Blackburn with Darwen

Hyundai Terracan

my abs light has come on and stays on all the time now what could be the reason

Answers

It's most likely an ABS sensor that has gone faulty. There are four, one at each wheel so you need to scan the car for fault codes to see which one it is. A replacement sensor is not too usually too expensive. The diagnostics will tell you whether it is an ABS sensor or whether it's more serious trouble eg with the ABS control module. How are your brakes generally, are the discs and pads badly worn, are you low on brake fluid or has the fluid not been changed for years? A lot of warning lights can be brought on because of neglected, worn and unsafe braking system faults. Hugh from City of Glasgow

my Terracan was cranking but not starting. Replaced both crank and cam sensors and vehicle ran great for a couple of days then the problem returned. I then disconnected the battery for 30 minutes, reconnected the battery and it started first time, I have done this twice. and nervously await the next non start. When its running it is smooth and speedy. What can I check next. David Aspley

Answers

I'd be looking at the immobiliser & key transponder (if your car is fitted with them). Mick from Portugal

Answer this question

Caroline Gonzalez, West Yorkshire

Hyundai Terracan

I've just had a new CD Player/Radio fitted by Halfords and my Terracan drove home fine. The next morning I have the following problems. 1) It won't start 2) No electrics - no central locking/windows etc. We've tried a new battery - the car is still dead. The coil light comes on but the engine doesn't even turn over. It was driving brilliantly before the stereo was fitted so I assume it can't be a coincidence this has all happened overnight? Halfords say they will diagnose the problem but we can't get the Terracan to start to get it to them. All help is much appreciated.

Can anyone tell me how to change light bulbs in instrument panel in my 2006 Terracan Hyundai, best Jon Jørgensen Norway

Answers

Hi remove the two screws in the top underside of the cowl around the instrument cluster, then pull the cowl off. Be aware it is really really hard as it is very firmly held by the metal tangs fitted to several locating and locking in points. I had had mine off several times to replace bulbs so now know I have to really yank it hard, one side then the other seems best (drop the stearing wheel on its adjuster helps to make space). The speedo and tacho bulbs 2 for each are an odd ball size not available from anywhere but Hyundiai and two years ago I had to wait for one, yes one, to come from Korea via the uk CEO I have since source 10 replacements from China just in case. david david from Denbighshire
