Hyundai Terracan

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.

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?

Craig Lamshed, United Arab Emirates

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)

Hi there. The glow plug light on my Hyundai Terracan flashes continually at times after start up. It stops after a while but generally after that happens the battery dies and has to be jump-started. It will go just fine again for days/weeks then the same thing will happen. I have had the battery tested and they say it is fine. Any thoughts? Thanks so much.

Tim Page, Surrey

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.

Hyundai Terracan 2004

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.

Answers

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

Have you done a test on injectors as mine had that code and required the injectors to be refurbed. Paul Soper from England

Had the same problem that Hyundai could not resolve until the A/T light started flashing. They then placed on the diagnostic machine and it was a throttle sensor that needed to be replaced. Cost $250 for a $2 part but stopped all the luurching and shuddering at low speed turning. nev from Australia

Hi there. My Hyundai Terracan will not start without a sniff of easy start, it will then run fine but won’t start after, even when warm. I have fitted 2 cam sensors, changed crank sensor, fuel pump and primer and fitted a new battery. No codes are coming up and it ran fine for a week after I fitted the first cam sensor. Now I have run out of ideas. Can anyone help please? Any ideas are welcome.

Answers

I have the same problem but one technician told me that my Terracan is losing fuel pressure at fuel tank where the fuel pump sealer is placed. For me this is a convincing idea since the O ring around the fuel pump is damaged since I have more than twice changed the fuel pump because of the quality of the fuel available here.

I have a 2006 Hyundai Terracan 2.9 turbo diesel. When it warms up the engine light comes on and it loses power and cuts out. I can start it straight away and it will run for a minute but then cuts out again. I can leave it idling as long as it wants and it will not stall. I cleaned the tank, the lines and replaced the filter. I did 400kms on the highway and then it started to do the same thing again. Can someone help me please? (turbo diesel)

Try to clean the Mass Airflow Sensor with a contact cleaner, when it gets clogged up, it causes the car loss power. Hope it helps Ismail from Brunei Darussalam

Hi, I have worked out that it does it when under quarter of a tank and there is still diesel in it and after priming 3 to 4 times. It will not go anymore, but then when you fill it up it stops. Kelvin from Australia

Get an O ring that can fit to the screw thread of the hand primer before fixing the fuel filter. Hope it helps. Philip Agbeshie from Ghana
