This almost sounds like the fuel pump check valve is leaking back during the day. Try this to see if it helps. Before you start your car during the day, cycle the key on and off a few times first. This runs the pump for a few seconds and builds up fuel pressure. If it starts immediately after the key cycling, that is most likely your problem.

    It's hard to say what is causing this problem without looking at the car. Can I assume this hasn't always been the way the car behaved when starting it after it was warmed up? How many miles are on the car, and if it is close to needing a tune up (I believe they need to be tuned up at 100,000 miles), has it gotten one? Warn plugs could cause a hard start condition. I'm sort of grasping at possible causes, but I feel if you've done a tune up, or it's not due for a tune up, you should bring your car to a technician for examination. Don't forget, that car is due for a timing belt at 80,000 miles.

2000 hyundai elantra alarm goes off where is the


There is NO kill switch on the 2000 Elantra... HOWEVER, there is a thing called the Key Fob (keyless remote entry system). There is, however, a system in place called the 'starter kill' circuit and it is activated when the burglar alarm goes off.... it's called the burglar alarm relay and it is activated to prevent the engine starter system from being used. There are three ways to get the engine started in such a circumstance... 1. use the key fob to 'disarm' the system... 2. put the key in the ignition and turn it to the 'RUN" position and wait until the alarm stops (horn stops beeping and the parking lights stop flashing), then the engine will start.... 3. pull the starter relay from the UnderHood junction box and bypass the starter circuit (key in ignition and in the 'RUN' position), jumper the starter solenoid circuit to energize the solenoid to start cranking the engine -- it should start then.

2000 hyundai elantra starts when it wants to


The problem you describe has many possible causes. Any number of engine management sensors (which are starting to go bad) can cause this problem, the fuel pump is starting to go bad, the engine computer, wiring, connectors, etc.. the list goes on and on. My experience tells me to tell you to take the vehicle into a Hyundai Service Center and try to get it diagnosed. If successful, they'll give you an estimate of repairs (parts, labor, tax, time-frame, etc.). This way you'll know exactly what's wrong and what's required to fix it. Now, since the problem is 'INTERMITTENT', that makes it tough for the technician unless he/she can discover any DTC (Diagnostic Trouble Codes) stored in the computer (ECM - Engine Control Module) - Did the 'Check Engine" light ever come ON? If so, this will help narrow the search and diagnosis.

Bad fuel odor


1 - Is your check engine ligh ON - If so have the car checked for codes

2 - Do you notice if your car is harder on fuel - elantra's are known for having an 02 sensor stop working and not turning on the check engine light.
