Engine Performance problem
2000 Hyundai Accent 4 cyl Front Wheel Drive Manual 177000 miles
I just bought this car. I did take it for a test drive but I guess I should have driving just a bit ferther. Anyway, it start very good when cold and stays idleing. After it warms up, it will not stay idleing. I have to press on the gas pedel just a bit to keep it running when it's completely warmed up.
Found this problem yesterday when I drove it home. I checked the plugs and wires and let me tell you, the person who sold me the car was lucky it ran at all. I changed the plugs and wires but the problem did not go away.
Yes, the Check Engine light is on and was on when I test drove the car. But I had a Jeep in which had the check engine light on and nothing was wrong with it. Yes, I took that Jeep to get tested.
The car sounds like it has very good potential. Can you help me figure out why it won't stay idleing when warmed up?
have the same problem?
