Engine Performance problem
2000 Hyundai Accent 4 cyl Front Wheel Drive Manual 78K miles
Let me explain in 50 words or less. Back in March my car was doing the "hiccup" thing which got worse and worse and the RPMs were revving up to 4000 when it was idle (especially in the morning when first starting) & it would seem to be stuck at the high RPMs until I would tap on the gas and it would go down. At that time I had the "idle air flow valve" replaced and that sort of seemed to work. FOR A WHILE.
Now just then last week my car all of a sudden just stopped being able to shift in the middle of the road and seemed to be stuck in 4th gear. So I got a rebuilt trans. Installed & now it is shifting again but the RPM revs and the "hiccup problem" CAME RIGHT BACK THIS MORNING.
Now the car is shaking badly when idle & the RPMs are revving again but now really got stuck this morning and I had to tap the gas TWICE to get it to go down. Now it's also idiling @ 2000 RPM and while on the highway tonight the car was really running HEAVY & LOUD and the RPMs rose to 4000 while driving!
Are these problems related or unrelated do you think?
have the same problem?
