Question about 1998 Hyundai Elantra

Hyundi Elantra J3 - Overfueling

I own a 2001 Elantra J3. Suddenly overnight a problem occurred. It refused to start due to no spark. First thought was coilpack which i replaced with o success. During various trail and error exercises i replaced the crank angle censor. This fixed the spark problem and the car started. Now i had a new problem. The mixture was very rich and when cold, the car starts first turn. But when hot, the car refuse to start due to excessive fuel. Please, if anybody can help me, i would appreciate it, because i have run out of ideas.

Try replacing the temperature sensor switch it located on top of the cyl head it is about the size of a pencil diameter wise about inch and half long if this is bad it will trat the fuel injection like it is 10 below outside even though the car is hot the sensor will probably have only one wire going to it

You need to give symptoms. For example, "I turn the starter motor, engine turns, but it won't start, and I smell gasoline odor." Diagnosis, you're giving too much throttle, the spark plugs become wet & saturated, so it won't start until the spark plugs are dry.
So do you mean it was running, and suddenly stopped in traffic, it was parked overnight and starter motor refuses to turn, or starter motor turns, but refuses to start ?? We need SPECIFIC symptoms if you want diagnostic feedback from this website.
You said "cars" in plural, so two or more cars all broke down at the same time? Maybe you have enemies or someone who wants retribution payback for an argument in recent past, so he sabotaged all your cars? Like in the last 3 or 4 days, or last night? When people are fuming, they exact retribution shortly. The more time goes by, they cool down and decide not to take revenge.

THE SMOKE YOU HAD IS BECAUSE MANY TRIES TO START COLLECTED FUEL IN THE COMBUSTION CHAMBERS AND SUDDENLY BURNT ON START. ANY WAY THE HESITATION OF CRANK START FOR LONG TIME CHECK WHETHER YOU DO NOT HAVE A PROBLEM WITH THE FUEL PUMP,FUEL FILTER OR COLD START SENSOR. CHECK YOUR SPARK PLUGS CLEAN THE THROTTLE BODY AND DO WITH SCANNER THE ADAPTATION.S

REPLACE THE FUEL FILTER AND CHECK THE SPARK PLUG CONDITION, IS SOUNDS LIKE YOUR FILTER IS OLD AND PLUGGED OR IT GOT FLOODED DUE TO OLD SPARK PLUGS
