Tried to start my car. Did not turned key to off position and tried again and did not start. Turned off made sure it wAs in park. Still did not start. 3/4 tank ok gas . Tried to start for 3 days nothing. Battery is good. My son got it started for a second while pressing the gas an ignition but would not stay started. Hyundai assurance got a tow truck to bring it to dealership. When he tried to start it did but took it anyway to be checked out. Dealership in Princeton wv says that it starts and they can not find anything wrong Please help

Car stalls while driving ...without warning.. Just dies.. No check engine light.. Changed fuel pump cam sensor charcoal canister and purge valve... Still stalling ... Finally the solution.. We changed the coil pack turns out the elantra would lose spark and shut off... Hope this helps others... Cars has been running without problems for 6 months noe

Random times when I cut motor off go into store and come back out car will not start. It may be 1 min or maybe 10 min in the store but just at random times will not start. Jump battery off and fire asap. Battery is good and alternator is good.
