Question about 2000 Hyundai Elantra
2000 hyundai elantra, 135,000 miles Stalled at light shortly after I ran gas down pretty far and refueled it. Engine turns and sounds normal when turning key. It just doesn't want to start. I thought maybe fuel pump, however after I turned the key several times I smelled gas so I have no idea. I drove approximately 35 miles into a 48 mile trip home. As I slowed for a stop light the car died. After about an hour and a short chain pull home a friend of mine and I checked the fuses. We replaced a bad fuse labeled CON under the hood and it started immediately. I then drove about 4 miles and the same thing happened again. It still won't start.
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.
