My 1998 Hyundai Elantra will not start after running out of gas.When I put gas in it ,it would crank but it took a long time to start. I drove it 3 miles and it shut off. I cranked it and cranked it,but it...


Don't let the car run out of gas. Fill the tank and run until the tank is half empty. Again fill the tank.
By driving until you run out of gas, you are letting sediments/dirt collected in the bottom of the tank to enter the engine. Rather they will block the fuel filter. Then gas will not reach the engine.
Clean the gas filter and your car will run fine.
The same advice again. Don't drive until the tank becomes empty.

Right gas tank overflows and gauge reads empty


The fuel system in this car with two taks is a little complicated. Not only is there a swithcover valve in the trunk but there are also two nonreturn valves in each wheel well. They are electrically opposite which means that when one is open the other one is closed. This is because as fuel is used from one of the tanks then unused fuel from the fuel rail will be returned to that tank. If a fuel non return valve stays open when it should be closed fuel will flow into the wrong tank. This is bad because no fuel is being taken from that tank and it will fill up from the excess fuel from the other tank overflowing the cap and run down the side of the car. If the guage of the overflowing tank reads empty I would think that the plastic float in the tank level unit has cracked and sunk. You can check it after the tank is well down on fuel. Itis accessible after removing the right taillamp assembly.

The coolant overflow( puke tank) should only be full when the truck is hot.
If you are filling the overflow tank when the engine is cooled off, it will overfill the "puke" tank when it warms-up and possibly even empty it by syphon action.

Where is the fuel filter located in a 2004 Hyundia Elantra????


It should be located inside the fuel tank with the pump assembly. it basically wraps around the pump. Access panel under the rear seats. No need to remove the tank.

I have a hyundai elantra 2000 have a code po442 and gasing up it act like it full so what the problem also it has over 120,000 miles on it


Hello! The 2000 Hyundia line has a common fault in the design of their evaporator system; The handling of fuel fumes. If, at any time, you may have overfilled the gas tank, gas will saturate the charcoal canister. This causes small pieces of charcoal to circulate within the evaporation control system, clogging it up, not allowing the gas tank to be filled. Does your Elantra have trouble accelerating, run rough, or stall? Probably so. Take the car to someone you trust and have them flush the evaporator system with the canister removed. You will more than likely need a new canister.

We just got a 1988 Porsche and filled with 1/2 tank, there was what seemed like overflow happening - Any idea what may be the problem.


fuel tank vent could be blocked by mud/pebbles etc, not letting the gas fumes escape while your adding fuel making it overflow, check underneath the car near the fuel tank .. something to start with..

Loosing radiator coolant


your probably losing fluid some where while your driving, or at high rpm, so just check for leaks, or check to see that there is nothing blocking your over flow hose, also fill you radiator all the way up and then fill your over tank
