I overhauled my Terracan 3.5L V6 engine and now it doesn't want to start. The spark is normal and fuel pressure is within specification. The engine turn at a good speed. The crank sensor and cam sensor has been replaced. The only thing I am not sure of is the valve timing. I am not sure which rocker should rock to determine top dead center.

Hyundai Terracan

I have a 2.9 diesel terracan, it runs ok but it looses power when driving, if I pull over and squeeze the pump in the engine it goes back to normal until it looses power again, I replaced the fault brake switch, the injectors have been checked and there fine so I'm at a loss, can anyone help me.?

Answers

I have a terracan with similar issue. In winter used to stall shortly after starting and need pump priming to start. Also in traffic stalls and has to be restarted with key. Dealer advised $13K nzd repair fuel pump and injectors. Another diesel mechanic said it is a computer fault. ie The car has a learning computer that adapts to wear in the fuel system and in driving technique conditions- hence I had the idea that if I changed techniques it might help. He said they had done over the fuel system and still had problems. Car is only worth $13K here so repair is ridiculous. I have largely cured my problem by 1. Never ever drive in traffic at low speeds with overdrive on. I only use overdrive above 70- 80Km/hr The car gradually improved (say over 3 weeks or a month) and came right pretty much. No longer have pump prime problem at all. Still get occasional stalls rarely in traffic (ie bumper to bumper slow moving stuff). I've now figured out that this happens only in hot weather with AC on. I confirmed this by opening the bonnet and switching the ac on and off on a hot day. Engine starts to run rough with AC on. With enough start stops accumulates to a stall when the brakes are applied. Anyway dealers know this problem but don't admit it. Andrew Skerrett from New Zealand

I am having the same problem after changing the fuel filter, my brother in law mechanic says there is air getting into the system so we are changing the lines form the new fuel filter to the common rail pump.

see my answer to 125867 - don't get ripped off on costs by dealers - there is no air - it is a computer problem Andrew Skerrett from New Zealand

The symptoms you describe are the same when the high pressure fuel pump begins to fail. It could be an air lock in the system however, but air GETTING in leads one to believe that there is a loose connection in the fuel supply system.. which would have to be in the high pressure part of the fuel system to cause a problem.. and as such, it is more likely that fuel would be coming out than air getting in. Get the garage to check the fuel pressure at the rail R Evans from Caerphilly

Update is that it is working fine with no issues unless the tank is under 1/4 on the gauge. Could it be that the fuel sender is sending a faulty reading and the car is in fact running out of fuel so the computer switches the car off so as not to damage the injectors etc? Daniel from Australia

Hi all i need some urgent advise on my hyundai terrecan 2.9 crdi automatic i was on my way on holiday when the engine light came on i immediately phoned the hyundai garage they said that i dont have to worry it is probably a bit of water in the diesel i must just drain the filter and pump the diesel filter again when i stopped to go to restroom the car would not start so i did what they said but still no start i got towed to hyundai dealer where they took a week to tri to find a fault today whent to them still they dont have a real answer on what is wrong said they think it is the diesel pump now they started the car with quick start and the car runs if there is no problem but engin light is still on and if i switch of i have to start with quick start please can anyone help me on what it might be

Answers

Hi Carel, If the engine light is on there must be a fault code given by the diagnostic computer. With that code we can tell if a control unit is faulty. Please ask the dealer you took it to for that code and we will possibly be able to assist you Danie Hayward from South Africa

Hyundai Terracan

2005 Terracan 2.9 Diesel Auto - My AC has just stopped working. Have checked all fuses etc and they're all good. The clutch on the aircon compressor doesn't seem to engage though, there's no audible click after a few moments/minutes and it doesn't spin - unlike the one in my other vehicle. Is this a common problem - or is this actually the problem, maybe it's something else. I'm going to pull apart the electrical connection to the compressor and have a look (really difficult to get to though) to see if there's anything untoward there. Any help would be appreciated.

Hey there. I have a problem with my Terracan 2.9 CDRI automatik drive. If the car is under load I have a noise under the car that songs like problems with the drive chain of Borg Warner. I am feeling a bumping under the seats in front of the car. I changed the drive chain and the bearings of the Borg Warner completely. I changed the 4H 2L swith, too. The driving worm is changed, too. Acoustically analysis resultes that the noise is audible at automatic transmission, at the transfer case and at the rear axle. I don´t know what I can do else. Has anyone an idea? I am really desperated because we can´t find the source of the problem. Best regards from Germany, Stefan

I've hust taken one for a test drive and heard the same thing. It was also shifting into 3rd gear really hard. When sitting at idel and shifting from neutral to either drive or reverse it would also make the noise. The owner is going to take it to a mechanic and get it looked at. I thought it felt like tail shaft backlash a bit myself as it only happened when it was under a bit of load. When driving slowly it was OK. I'll repost when I hear back from the owner and let you know. Paul from Australia

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.
