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
Insert key in ignition and turn then nothing happens. It takes a couple tries to turn on the vehicle at various times.
While driving engine stalls vechile starts losing power down to 25 milea per hour .shut off engine it cranks back drives good for little ways and does it again .
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
Engine wont start off and on numerous times. its not the battery. some thing is draining the battery.
Turn key and car will not start. Tried it in N and it started. Today, will not start in P or N. It has been intermittent in the past either when first starting for the day or after a short trip.
Try to start car won't start. Intermittent problem. Concord Hyundai said it was the battery so we paid and had a new battery installed. Well it has done it a few times since. Switched cars with a family member and it never happened to her. Had my car back one week and today it won't start again. Hyundai in Gastonia can't duplicate the problem so they don't know what is wrong with my car. I've only had it 6 months!
Car stalls when coming to a stop or at low RPMs. Then RPM gage doesn't work (no engine light initially). Turned car off and back on and RPM gage reengages. Happened 1 time while in traffic on the highway. Car stalled and I was able to glide to the shoulder. Started it back up and moved back onto highway but wouldn't go past 50 MPH until I took my foot off gas then it kicked in. Starting to happen more frequently and now the engine light is on.
Intermittent stall no warning. I'm sitting in a parking lot. Still not fixed
Key placed in ignition, turned, won't start- tried several times, making sure it is in park- and nothing. After tow truck is on the way, it starts. It has done this about 3 times in the last 2 wks
Have not fixed it car started to act like not getting enough gas bucking hard shift at times other times not noticed
Rpm doesn’t work. Car dies at stop lights / idles low and puts as if it is about to die frequently. Loses power often too.
Loud rattling sound when engine first started when cold. Sometimes won’t turn over/start unless moved in and out of park/reverse/drive.
