    Is it hard to repair a P0112 Intake air temp issue? How much?
    Just found today. Trying to figure what I can do or is this something deeper.

      P0112 = Low voltage for the IAT 'intake air temperature' sensor

      Try disconnecting the electrical connector from the MAF and drive the car (road test) and see if the hesitation is gone. When the MAF has an open circuit, the computer sees that and substitutes a fixed value in place of the open circuit which would supply nothing. The car will most often run better on the fixed value when the MAF sensor is really defective. But with a code P0112 you are pretty safe changing the MAF sensor.

      It could just be a bad connection at the connector or cleaning the MAF sensor with MAF aerosol cleaner might actually fix it. The spray can cleaner may cost around $5.00 - local auto parts stores.

      Check the various on-line vendors; www.autopartswarehouse.com, www.RockAuto.com, www.partsgeek.com, to list only a few. For example, they (RockAuto) list the MAF sensor (new) from around $82.00 for your vehicle.

      no your not the pulleys do wear it could have started by a week tension er and a new belt compensated for the worn pulley for a little while. most of the time it is the alternator pulley and alot of the time the alternator doesn't come with a new pulley you have to swap it over.

      Sounds like a battery issue, the clicking is the starter turning on and off rapidly because the battery does not have enough power to crank it over.

      Possible issues are a bad battery, a bad alternator, or an electrical short somewhere.
      in most cases it is the battery some may not last as long as others and is a matter of time of replacement. Have someone jump start your car, or charge the battery, and when or if you get it running and it stays running when you take the cables off, it is a bad battery. If you get it running by jumping and or charging the battery and it does not stay running, then it is another issue like the alternator. Best bet is to get a new battery installed to solve your issue.

      The '04 Elantra only came with the 2.0L four cylinder engine - no V6 is available or will fit into this vehicle.
