Question about 2001 Hyundai Sonata

1 Answer

Car want start, it's not getting fuel.

I bought the car with a wrecked front end. It ran great!! I drove it on and off the trailer and to the spot I am currently working on it. the car ran fine until I took out the radiator, hood, lights and bumper cover. Took all the damaged parts. It would not start. So I replaced them with good parts. Now it still want start nor even get fuel. So where exactly is the emergency turn off switch to the fuel pump or what else could it be if not that?

Only Ford Products have a Fuel Safety Shut Off Switch

No idea why people ask that & everyone should know the
switch is only activated in an accident,in which case there
is no need to reset it

Wouldn't you think maybe you removed a ground wire &
haven't properly resecured it?

SOURCE: 2001 Hyundai Accent cranks, won't start

its the camshaft position sensor . Its located (atleast on my 1.6L) to the right of the front HOT plate the conection runs between the engine and the right side fan. easier to work on if you take off the air intake thats by the left front side of the battery. you will be working between the fan and the motor. only one bolt but is tricky so u need a 1/4 inch nuckle with a 1/4 extention. once located and you have the right tools it will only take 30 minutes to replace....dont forget to take off negative battery cable before you start.

SOURCE: Car stalled and won't start again

Sounds like it might be either the fuel filter or the fuel pump, cause if you ran the tank down, you probably had sludge in the bottom of the tank that you sucked into the engine, you can try using a fuel system cleaner, you may have sucked sludge into the injectors running it, Zmax sells a fuel system cleaner, or there is one called RUN RIGHT, I would try putting some of that in letting it sit a few min then after it sat a few to soak in and break down the sludge, then start the car up, kick your idle up to around 1500 RPM do not go higher then that cause you will damage the engine, try that and see if that works for you, if not then I is probably the fuel pump or filter.
hope this helps.

SOURCE: replaced fuel pump in 2000 hyundai elantra and

well if she ran it to long with no oil it might be locked up and might be able to turn it over if its not to bad. but you should still get power going to your fuel pump i would check all connection going to fuel pump and no broken wires. try even un plugging battery to see if there's a bypass

1994 Cadillac deville starting problems

As with any no start issue, someone will need to check for spark at the plugs and fuel pressure at the injectors to proceed.
Could be a relay or the fuel pump, or a long list of things.

1996 200 sx ran great all day. Drove into driveway and just died. Like ran out of Gas but didn't. Any thoughts of where to start?

Pull out a spark plug put it on the end of the wire and see if you have spark when someone cranks the engine over. If you have spark then try spraying a little starter fluid in the throttle body while cranking it over, does it try to start? If it does fuel pump may be bad. If it doesn't, possible timing belt, timing chain, problem. In other words if you have fuel and spark, then it should start, unless something is wrong with compression. Timing off will cause low compression. Another thing if while cranking engine over the starting fluid is pushed back at you by the engine, it is almost a sure sign of the timing being off. Please rate my answer so I am rewarded points for it.

I just bought a 1983 GMC high sierra the guy i bought it from said it had been sitting for a couple of years but he came out at least once a month and cranked it anyways i drove the truck before i bought...

It could be bad gas or a clogged fuel filter and maybe a clogged fuel jet in the carburettor.

Start with checking the fuel filter first. If it has dirty fuel in it, it probably clogged the filter and then the jets. That's common in cars and trucks who are left with gas in them and sit for long periods of time.

Hope this helps?
