Just wanting to see if anyone else has had the issue? Just around 6,500 miles and cylinder 2 has completely stopped working. Hyundai hasn’t been able to tell why this has happened as of yet.
Nope no one here. It's Hyundai's problem. There's always more to the story, which you haven't begun to extrapolate on. Maybe, you ought to consider telling the full story first. The engine just didn't pack up and stop operating.
I could be one or a number of issue. More than likely, bent valves. Hyundai will figure it out and see if it's a warranted claim. I can tell you if you missed a gear, then downshifted into a lower gear by accident and overwhelmed the rev-limiter, they be able to tell as soon as look at the ECU logs. I truly hope this did happen but we won't know till you tell us everything leading up to the actual issue.
Last time I heard this happening, an owner did just this^ above and posted it on the N-Car Forum. He got lucky and Hyundai replaced the motor.
OOPS, That'll do it!!:wink: One way or the other the truth will come out. Knew this sounded far too familiar.:wink:You're not the guy that posted about the "odd sound" you had in the VN owners group on facebook and then admitted in the comments you had a mis-shift and hit 1st instead of 3rd, are you?
Some people can't be taught.
Now I've never driven on a track event, and I can sort of see the possibility for a missed shift, or more precisely an incorrect shift, but I still have trouble with the overall concept.Or, as we say in the industry -- PEBKAC.
As for the money shifts; i.e., incorrect downshifts that force you to shift your money to your mechanic, are there tips&tricks that folks can follow to avoid them? For example, maybe use auto-rev match and the car will yell at you before you release the clutch? It's still a rather short period of time if you're rowing fast, but what else is there?
Gotcha. The old FnF "power shift".Money shifts happen when people think they're going to go faster by slamming through the gears, which forces it past the synchro. Yeah, it's happened on the track but it mainly happens with street racers -- which is not surprising.
Semi's have much higher gear counts than a passenger car though don't they? I can totally understand missing a gear in one of those.I drove semi's for over 8 years, and I can tell you I have missed a lot of shifts. Just the nature of the beast with a manual transmission. Nobody is perfect. But the "N" can handle a little abuse. Now I don't recommend floating the gears like you can in semi truck, where you don't use the clutch at all. That might cause some issues. But the "N" will come out of gear with no clutch if you give the car a little gas and pull on the shifter at the sametime it come's smooth out of gear. But you can't blimp the gas to put it in gear without the clutch though. What a bummer..ha. Yes I know there is a huge difference in transmissions. Ha. But still would be fun to "float" gears in the N.
Oh yes semi's have a higher gear count. Usually either 10 or 18 gears. I know in Arkansas you will not pass the driving portion of the exam without knowing how to float gears. They like to see you use the clutch method because its way harder than floating. But you have to understand the mechanics of shifting a semi to be able to float. Floating saves the left leg in traffic!!! And that one thing I hate with my N is traffic.Semi's have much higher gear counts than a passenger car though don't they? I can totally understand missing a gear in one of those.
"Floating" is also called compression shifting. If done properly, no damage will occur. It's essentially double clutching without using the clutch. You push out of the gear you're in right after lifting the throttle so the transmission is not under immediate load, then while in neutral you match the RPM your car will be at for the next chosen gear and it should slide right in, no grinding, no muss, no fuss.
Not an "ideal" way to change gears as it is much more time consuming than using the clutch, but it is engaging and show-offy. I had a 1985 Mercury Cougar XR-7 that lost the pin that connects the clutch pedal to the clutch cable and had to be told how to do it by my uncle's car restoring friend. After minimal practice I had it down pat, only issue was a dead stop as it was difficult to start the car in gear being a 2.3L Turbo 4. Was fun though. I can do it, but I prefer not to as there's just no real advantage to it.
