Hello all,

I have been having some trouble with my 98 hyundai tiburon. I really no nothing about cars so I am gonna describe the problem the best I can and maybe one you can give me some answers. First off, the engine makes a light ticking sound while its idle. Secondly, when I get up to speeds between 50-70, the engine is very loud. Thridly, when I take my foot of the gas and let the car decelerate, the car shakes and is even louder than at higher speeds. Last but not least, driving at normal local speeds around 25-35, the car takes bumps very rough and the car feels like its gonna fall apart. I know, its so sad. Well theres the problems but not sure what to tell the mechanics what exactly is wrong. Any help would be greatly appreciated. Thanks guys!

-Eric

the symptons is similar to my other car I had years ago.

one of your pistons has stopped working and does your car sound like a lawnmover?
take your car to the mechanic asap, they can diagnose and pressure test your engine.

they can probably give you the fault and repair description straightaway.
