Question about 2000 Hyundai Elantra
Does the Check Engine light come ON when this happens? Whenever the "Check Engine" light comes on, there is always a DTC (Diagnostic Trouble Code) stored in the ECM (Engine Control Module). You'll need an OBDII (On-Board-Diagnostics) scanner to retrieve any codes recorded/set in ECM. Otherwise, guesswork. I have MANY ideas that could send you on a wild goose chase. I strongly suspect EMS (Engine Management System) sensor beginning to malfunction as it warms up. First strong suspicion is the crank position sensor (CKP) - however,usually always sets a DTC (i.e., P0335, P0336). The next suspicion is the Engine Coolant Temperature sensor. The ECM uses this sensor's signal to adjust fuel, timing, engine RPM, etc based on engine temp. If malfunctioning at a particuar point during engine warm up, it could be telling the ECM the temperature is LOWER or HIGHER than it ACTUALLY is, resulting in the ECM to increase fuel (flood it) or give it LESS fuel (starve it). If this malfunction lasts long enough, the ECM will usually set a DTC for that sensor circuit, either a Range/Performance code, or a "LOW Input" or "HIGH Input" code.
