I take you work at a Hyundai dealership. Have to give them credit for their Theta engines, but have heard horrible stories about the cars themselves through friends that work there also.

Plus with the Gen coupe, there is no need to turbo any of the other ish they make.

No shit, only was referenced since you claimed the pcm is "too stupid" to see if it works other than something simple like if there is a load on the circuit or if it's open. We didn't need to know how the pcm determines flow rates, just how it enters the state to start the test. By that we could det...

Ever check the tube? Seen the tubes become partially clogged which would shoot a code. Hit the junkyard and pick up a whole valve and tube. Soldering resistors does not work. The pcm has a whole process it goes through to check to see if it's functioning. Not just by seeing if there is a load on th...

You could import one from Australia, but then you would have "postal truck" status.

Eh, at least it's a 3.8. I'll swear by those motors, but not their silly intake gaskets. Also coolant that flows through the throttle body, WTF??

Ok, that's a 15 amp that supplies voltage to several things, including the PCM, egr solenoid, evap purge solenoid, the Pcm controlled side of the fuel pump relay. Since this fuse blew, did it blow again? Otherwise if it did not pop again, you may have a random short in this circuit . It is a light g...

If it's not a regular wire and looks woven, it's the ground strap that connects the body to the fuel filler tube. They usually corrode and fall off anyway. That will have no affect on the car running or not. I presume you checked the fuel pump and found it working, voltage at the pump right? By engi...
