Question about 2000 Hyundai Elantra
My daughters 2000 hyundai elantra wagon runs well when it starts, it intermittantly just won't start. For example it wouldn't start for her to go somewhere yesterday morning, I took it to the store and had no problems so she took it to work last night and had no problems, she just called me and said it won't start again. If it helps sometimes if you hold the gas to the floor it will start, almost like its not getting gas, but only sometimes??
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.
