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.

Answers

if your timing belt is broken probably all you valves have been bent or broken this is (in europe) a total loss for the engine need to change all your valves plus pistons and hone housing of the piston so you'd better change for a second hand or revised engine ps timing belt for your car is every 60,0000km plus waterpump reccommended revising engine every 500,000km bert from Netherlands Antilles

Barry, South Africa

Hyundai Terracan

Hi guys, my Terracan 2.9CRDI will not start. It cranks fine but will not start. There are now error messages on the diagnostics test. Tested the injectors and high pressure fuel pump and they are fine. The fuses and relays are fine. My question is this, can the crankshaft sensor and camshaft position sensor be the issue here and is there a way to test them? Thank you.

Answers

Hi Barry, if you have access to a diagnostic tool then check the following in live data, 1- RPM signal while cranking, should be over 200RPM. 2-fuel pressure, over 350Bar is ok. If the above checks out ok then spray some quickstart into the intake, if it starts then it is possibly your cam sensor. Regards Tariq Tariq from South Africa

I have a Hyundai Terracan 2.9 diesel. When I start the engine it starts and operates as normal. If the car has been parked for 24 hours or so the engine still starts as normal but nothing happens. When I push the gas pedal for about 5 or 10 seconds. After this the engine operates as normal. It's just right after IT has been started if the car has been parked for a while. Has anyone experienced something similar?

Answers

maybe your vacuumpipes are blocked in a way ask any garage they know an easy fix probably it's just a rearrangement of the pipe(s) so that it's "open" again if the pipes are to damaged it can be expensive but for 90% it's an easy fix by stretching the pipe(s) bert from Netherlands Antilles

Hyundai Terracan 2005

I have a Hyundai Terracan V6 and of late have been experiencing some issues regarding the transfer case/diffs. When driving it seems to do a change down which lurches the car forward, especially when stopping or slowing down. It`s escalated to the point where, when doing hard turns right or left, it shudders. The mechanic said it was locking the rear wheels and seemed to be coming from the transfer case locking up. So I disengaged the transfer case by removing the fuse and this effectively has allowed me to run the car as ’rear’ wheel drive. 1.) What are the effects of removing the fuse for the Transfer case? 2.) What else could be the cause of the issue? Thank you in advance for any assistance. (Petrol)

Hyundai Terracan 2005

On checking fluid levels in my Hyundai Terracan before a journey I found there was engine oil in the coolant header tank - a layer on the coolant. There is no indication of coolant in the engine oil (ie a frothy emulsion). I spoke with my local Hyundia garage and they inidcated it could be due to either a faulty head gasket or due to a failed oil seal on the engine oil cooler. My local garage (all makes) have had a look/see around the engine area and are unable to find the location of an oil cooler. The question is, does the Terracan have an engine oil cooler and where is it located? The gearbox is manual - not automatic. Any knowledge on this problem? Thanks.

Could anyone tell please advise me what does diagnostic report P1119 mean? I have a Hyundai Terracan 2004 2.9 diesel automatic. I am having difficulties getting it started but eventually it will start and it tends to smoke. I had a diagnostic report done on the car and it showed P1119. Does anyone know what P1119 means in term of repair? Some suggested I should fit a non return valve on the fuel pipe between the fuel pump and the last injector and that should solve the starting problem. As for smoking I have no idea. Any advice will be much appreciated.

I had this problem too. It was the injectors, so I took my Terracan for a refurb. What a difference! I also blanked the egr valve to stop the smoking. Paul Soper from Kent
