In this video I have a look at a Hyundai Elantra that came in with a "idle problem." The engine light was on with several codes pertaining to the Idle Air Control Valve and also had a code for a large EVAP leak. Let's have a look see. -Enjoy!

    Cycling the IAC with your scan tool when it was off the engine would've been a good check. Maybe the IAC was gunked up and just needed cleaning. Did the junkyard IAC get cleaned before installation?

    where is the idle air control valve…you showed it in your hand but not in the engine…needing to replace mine and dont know how

  24. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars 6atlantis says:

    My 2012 Sonata is now idling around 500rpm after changing spark plugs opposed to the 700-750rpm before I changed them, I didn’t touch anything else, all wires and coils put back correctly. I don’t “feel” any misfires and I haven’t gotten any codes in the month since I did the plugs. Is there an idle relearn I need to do or did I fudge something up doing the plugs? Or is it actually just running better?

    I beg to differ with you on the car chase. No, all was not good. A lot of people suffered damage. Of course in your Communist state where vehicles are rapidly trashed you see no harm in cars getting run over because Communism skews your thinking so radically that destroying someone's property means nothing, like any Good Communist state believes, that it belongs to the state and YOU HAVE NOTHING. That my friend is how Communism works.

    Great job and video like always

  37. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars Blackie Chong says:

    I believe this mechanic does lot of hillbilly rigging on vehicles then what he shows on youTube. Also just throws parts at it to try and fix it.

    Crazy all the wheel bearings. Here in California it’s very rare for them to fail and I see 300k on cars.

    Looks like a nice little town. Odd American houses don’t have any fences between them, makes them look very exposed and public.

    And what’s with all the American flags everywhere?
