    Possibly, but a quick check of a few online auto parts web sites only show the 1.5 ltr SOHC engine as a choice for the 99 Accent. I would hazard a guess that is the engine you have. Just to be safe, check the valve cover on the engine and look for SOHC or DOHC. Also, if you see something like 16V on the valve cover, that is a DOHC engine, but I would not expect to see that. YMMV. ;)
  • where is the plug for the computer diagnostic too?

    I have a 2001 Accent with the 1.6L motor. We've been getting a check engine lamp illumination for some time and there has obviously been an exhaust leak for the last year or so. It sounded like the leak was coming from the behind the heat shield that covers the O2 sensor. In three seconds an auto repair technician quickly pointed out that the manifold is cracked in the area around the O2 sensor. Apparently he's seen this before.

    Anybody else have this problem and if so, what did it cost to have it repaired?

    Your car is under warranty. Your best bet is to get thee to a Hyundai dealer and have them hook it up to their diagnostic machine and check it out. But a dying car can be due to reasons other than the car, e.g. bad gas.
  • The dealer found nothing wrong. but thanks any way

    Try another dealer, since that dealer seems to be incompetent.
  • My car is is having a misfire in cylinder one when I get on the throttle to aggressively. At first I attempted to change the fuel filter and throughout the searching for it never found it. We chased the line from rail to tank and even pulled the pump. So we read the computer and the misfire problem and an O2 sensor problem. I change the O2 sensor and no change was made so I have tried a new TPS, but that didn't solve the problem. Now I am wondering where I should look. Does anyone have any suggestions?
  • i was driving and my timing belt broke in turn bending valve(s) in my #3 cylinder. any help would be greatly appreciated. videos are ideal

    it hasnt left me stranded yet but if anyone knows what the cause of this is , please let me know.

  • sounds like heat sink in the starter, get a heat shield for the starter or a new starter
