There are many possible answers to you problem. If it were any OTHER car I would start checking fuel systems. Now, I'm assuming you have about 125,000 miles on your car. Other info, like what kind of climate and driving conditions might be helpful. You use of the word "just" may be a key clue. I'd like to strike a guess that one of your two coils went bad and you have a weak start. The secondary coil went out on my 01 elantra about 4 months ago.

2001 hyundai elentra check engine light stays on what would cause this when car runs great?

Easy, find someone that has an OBD2 meter and get the error code # ( an example is Po256) Then plug the code number into google and it will tell you what is wrong.
You have to have a sensor on the engine component for the ck engine lite to come on. Leaking fluid will usually not have a sensor, so this is not the engine light problem.

I assume your vehicle is a petrol fuelled model rather than a diesel? If YES, then maybe it's worth checking the air filter first? It does sound rather as if your engine is getting a far richer mixture than it needs when starting from hot. If the air filter is CLEAR and CLEAN then I'd be inclined to check out the carb/injectors next. Hope it helps?!

Did the valves bend on my 2002 elantra 2.0 engine when the belt broke? Or is it ok to replace the belt without any worry

Most engines for the elentra even the new ones have engines that are interference engines. Which means that valves hit the piston.

Check engine light blinks on and off. rought idle

You describe a 'Misfire' condition. You'll need and OBD!! scanner to retireve any throuble codes stored in the ECU (Engine Control Unit). Once you know which/what code (i.e., P0300 - Random Misfire Detected, or P0302 - Cylinder #2 misfire detected, etc). then you'll know where to go from there - plugs, wires, coil(s), etc.

Trail blazers are known to have coil packs go bad, and you will loose spark on a cylinder. I would first get the check engine light scanned to see what the computer found. The etc fuse may have gone bad due to a wheel sensor issue, but, get the check engine light looked at first.

Engine running rought at idle won't stay running runs great at higher r.p.m. check eng. light comes on once engine is warmed up.

Take it to Advance Auto or Autozone and they'll read the check engine code. That will give you an idea but it's not perfect. There are many faults that trip the check engine light and I suspect there will be several. Coils or Mass Air Flow sensor would be at the top of my list of suspects. A bS Mass Air Flow sensor will give other codes such as lean or rich or even manifold leak, because the result is the fuel system doesn't provide proper ratio of fuel to air.
