Look into the starter motor - replacing it is a good idea.

Starter motor problem is linked to startup issues in cars. Common issue.

When starter motor is stuffed the gear would not extend out properly to engage the gear on the engine.

I have a Hyundai accent 1.5 diesel 2002. Turns over but will not start, changed glow plugs and diesel is coming through the injectors

I believe your problem is with your crankshaft sensor. You may not have had to change glow plugs. Your problem seems to be with spark. If you change this part ,the crankshaft sensor, you should be OK. This sensor is located at the left front of your engine. Please let me know how you make out. GOOD LUCK.

Hyundai Accent 1.5 Diesel. Intermittent problem with starting. Sometimes starts and runs fine. However sometimes on starting car will not run above 750 rpm and throws out HUGE clouds of black smoke. ...

it sounds like a glow plug issue. perhaps a bad glow plug relay. I would think its the relay if the problem comes and goes. If it were a bad glow plug the problem would be constant. check for volts at the glow plugs next time the car acts up. If you find no volts, tap on the glow plug relay next time you turn the key on. This may cause it to activate. if so then replace relay

Hyundi accent diesel car starts badly sometimes , it starts but has no engine power and black smoke comes from exhaust

Happened to me, too. On Hyudai Getz 1.5 CRDi (3 cylinder). It was just jammed butterfly (air regulator) where air is entering to machine for combustion. Due to low quality diesel soot is gathering on this butterfly and finally blocks it. However, the same problem could appear if air filter is full of dirt or blocked by dirt, or if there is computer problem in sending wrong information for combustion to engine.

This would appear to be the start of GLOW PLUG failure. Raise the hood and Swich On the Ignition.
With a volt meter,... test the supply voltage on the Glow Plug supply terminal connection. If this is GOOD, Switch Off the ignition and remove the Key.
Remove the Glow Plugs with a Long shank socket.
Make up a length of 14/16 gauge wire, stripped about 1 inch from each end. Attach 1 end to the Battery Pos.+ Terminal,and holding the other end, take each Glow Plug in turn,and hold the PLUG BODY onto the Neg.- Terminal, and TOUCH and HOLD the wire to the Plug TERMINAL CONTACT. If the Plug is GOOD it will SMOKE and GET HOT. If more than 2 Plugs do not react then JUNK them ALL, and replace them. If only 1, then just replace it solely. Make sure on re-installation, that the PLUG, is FIRM and SNUG in the receiver. Disconnect your Supply from the Battery, and attempt Start Up procedure.
Let me know how you get along.
