Advices on Hyundai Getz problem

Hi,

Recently, my car 9-years old Hyundai Getz have started to add new problems

Vibration - when in D or R, and hold the break will cause it

Heavy/Slow - the break LED appear and seems quite sensitive when breaking, acceleration is slow

I already changed the spark plug twice because it have misfiring problem previously, now new problems arise which not sure what's actually is. I heard it could be idling control but not so sure about it.

Can you suggest and advice what to check on? Thank you.

Harsh vibration can be attributed to engine mounts. I am concerned abt the brake LED? Check the brake fluid level and post back then we can go from there.

If it continues to misfire I would suggest replacing the plugs and leads and maybe even the coil to eliminate all of those components at once and it is quite common for the Getz engine mounts to fail especially the rubber (left side) and hydraulic (right side) especially that the car is 9 years old

I would clean the idle control valve to rule that out. They can get abit gummed up after years.

Did you gap the new plugs correctly? Sometimes a wide gap on new plugs can cause abit of roughness at idle.

Clean the MAF or map sensors if you suspect them, they can also cause a little roughness when old and dirty.

Check the intake air temperature sensor with an obd reader. If it is not reading correctly it will cause the ECU to deliver poor mixture (same with the MAF or map).

Don't just throw parts at it! Check the leads and ignition coils with a multimeter and visually before thinking about replacing them. Make sure all HT connections are tight and clean. A little silicon grease helps keep moisture out of the plug boots.

Good luck, shout if you need any help 🙂

Edit:

I agree with Charles though, the vibration could be engine mounts and the brake issue is a separate and more concerning issue that needs to be taken care of
