Check out the lemon laws in your state.... as well as asking to speak to the service manager about the issue. if that doesn't work ask to speak to the area rep for hyundai until you get this fix... keep records of what they have done and whom and what you have spoken to them about.

    i see you are in the states... if the check engine light is still on drop into autozone and have them read the codes (free). post the codes here after you have them tho the lads/lasses are pretty good there and should be able to tell you what they are.

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

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
