Question about Hyundai Motor 2004 Accent

1 Answer

2004 Hyundai Accent would not start after it had warmed up. Subsequently it would not start at all but the valve cover blew off.

After replacing the starter on my 2004 Hyundai Accent, it would not start after the car was hot. Started right up when cold but after driving to work 55 miles, it would crank like it had a low battery (battery was new) After it cools, it starts right up. The local mechanic changed the starter 3 times and it stilll does the same thing. Then, it wouldn't start at all. Cranked fine but no igintion like it was either flooded or the fuel pump had died. Had it towed to the local shop and it started right up for them. They started it several times a day for several days. One morning when they tried to start, it only cranked over but then the valve cover exploded. We don't have a clue - the oil sump is NOT filled with gasoline. They replaced the valve cover and it started right up. We have no idea what happened or what would prevent it from happening again. Can anyone help?

That sounds like a timing/ cooling system issue. The coolant sensor would adjust the timing etc. Your tech would have to scan the car & check the live readings (HOT & COLD) & check the emissions. Put all the pieces together & solve the puzzle

SOURCE: Turn ignition to crank and nothing happens??

find the starter or ignition relay and replace it... generally either on the fuse panel inside the car or the fuse panel located in the engine compartment.

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: Care does not start on a hot day

Yes, have seen this before. The cause most often attributed to this problem is the coolant temperature sensor (it's lying to the ECM about the engine's REAL and ACCURATE temperature). NOW, don't take my word for it, take the vehicle to a Hyundai Service Center/dealership and have them diagnose it to VERIFY that's EXACTLY what's causing the problem (could be a number of other things).

2004 Hyundai Accent - baffle inside valve cover oil filling opening. What is it purpose and is it needed? It was broken off and just laying inside of the cover.


It reduces Valve train noise and stops oil splatter from exiting engine if cap is left off. I think it just lays on top of valves. Then you install valve cover. I would leave it on

2001 hyundai accent 1.5 liter SOHC 12v engine. Timing belt tensioner fell apart. Replaced tensioner and belt. No compression in cylinder #2. Is there anything it could be other that bent valves?


With regrets, Not likely, pull the vlave cover and observe the height of the valves, if it is bent it should be not quite as tall as the rest.

2002 Hyundai Accent Problem


first thing i need to know is did the timing belt break?
second is are you sure you aligned the timing marks and after the belt tensioner was tight you rechecked to make sure the timing stayed where you had it.
next step would be a compression check to if a valve was bent whenchanging the belt
i have seen this happen and this engine is an interferance engine.

Speedometer Needle for Hyundai 2004 Accent


If your transmission fluid level is okay, then you need a new speedometer cable. Its not terribly difficult to replace, but it does require you to pull the instrument cluster. A local Hyundai dealership might be willing to photocopy the specific speedometer cable replacement instructions out of the 2004 Accent shop manual.
