Annoying squeak in 04 Hyundai Accent

Answered by CarsGuide 15 Jul 2010

Using the silicon spray would reduce the noise for a short time, but the effect would soon wear off as you have experienced and the noise return. Try scuffing the surface of the pulleys with a fine grit wet-and-dry paper and then fitting a new belt. If that fails to quell the noise, fit a new alternator pulley. Also make sure the belt is tensioned correctly.

Fuel-injection best

Answered by CarsGuide 8 Apr 2004

FIRST to your last question. You will wonder why you haven't had fuel-injection before, it is so much better in all respects than a carburettor that you will love it. Your car will start without drama at all temperatures, will drive smoothly at all times, won't suffer from fuel vapourisation, will deliver better fuel economy and have more power. As for the Accent and Rio, I can't give you a definitive answer other than the Accent has a good reputation within the trade. The Rio isn't quite as well regarded. The feeling is that Kia is about where Hyundai was five years ago in build quality and reliability. I would favour the Hyundai, but don't have any major Kia objection.
