Hyundai Sonata 1997 FAQs
Check out real-world situations relating to the Hyundai Sonata 1997 here, particularly what our experts have to say about them.
THE Sonata uses regular unleaded, but some Hyundai mechanics suggest running PULP occasionally to aid clean running. For the flat spot, check that the spark plugs were changed at 90,000km as recommended.

They should have been replaced at 90,000km. Also check the plug leads.Show more

The other thing to check is the balance belt -- it should also be changed, and needs to be correctly aligned when the new cam timing belt is fitted. It's easy to get the balance belt 180 degrees out.Show more
THEY will be cheaper, but won't last as long. Platinum-tipped spark plugs are used for their longer life and are fitted mainly because America has laws about service intervals and the platinum-tipped plugs help meet the laws.Show more
