Recalls for 1999 Hyundai Elantra 99B 4dr Wgn GL Manual
1999 HYUNDAI ELANTRA
NHTSA Campaign ID: 00V259001
Component: ELECTRICAL SYSTEM:WIRING
Manufacturer: HYUNDAI MOTOR COMPANY
Manufacture Dates: 06/01/1999 - 06/16/2000
Potential Units Affected: 165977
Defect Description:
VEHICLE DESCRIPTION: SOME SONATA VEHICLES EQUIPPED WITH 2.5 LITER V-6 ENGINES AND ALL ELANTRA MODEL VEHICLES MAY HAVE EXPERIENCED INTERMITTENT LOW-SPEED ENGINE STALLING, WHICH COULD OCCUR IF THE MAF (MASS AIR FLOW) SENSOR ELECTRICAL SIGNAL IS INTERRUPTED AS A RESULT OF ENGINE VIBRATION TRANSMITTED TO THE MAF SENSOR CONNECTOR WIRING HARNESS.
Consequence:
THIS CONDITION CAN CAUSE THE ENGINE TO STALL, INCREASING THE RISK OF A CRASH.
Action to take:
DEALERS WILL RE-ROUTE THE MAF SENSOR CONNECTOR WIRING HARNESS.
1999 HYUNDAI ELANTRA
NHTSA Campaign ID: 99V178000
Component: POWER TRAIN:AUTOMATIC TRANSMISSION
Manufacturer: HYUNDAI MOTOR COMPANY
Manufacture Dates: 03/25/1999 - 04/30/1999
Potential Units Affected: 11530
Defect Description:
VEHICLE DESCRIPTION: PASSENGER VEHICLES EQUIPPED WITH AUTOMATIC TRANSMISSIONS. THE AUTOMATIC TRANSMISSION PRESSURE CONTROL SOLENOID VALVE SEALS DO NOT REMAIN SUFFICIENTLY ELASTIC, RESULTING IN TRANSMISSION FLUID LEAKAGE. THIS LEAKAGE CAN RESULT IN REDUCED PRESSURE APPLICATION TO THE CLUTCHES, BRAKE, AND KICKDOWN SERVO, ALLOWING THEM TO SLIP.
Consequence:
SUCH SLIPPAGE CAN CAUSE PREMATURE DETERIORATION OF THE FRICTION ELEMENT SURFACES AND COULD CAUSE THE VEHICLE NOT TO ACCELERATE, OR NOT ACCELERATE AS EXPECTED, WHEN THE DRIVER PRESSES THE ACCELERATOR PEDAL.
Action to take:
DEALERS WILL REPLACE THE PRESSURE CONTROL SOLENOID VALVE.
