Question about 2005 Hyundai Accent
I have a 2005 Hyundai Accent with approx. 134,000 miles on it. I stopped at a stop sign and the car just cut off. I tried to restart it but it won't start. It does turn over and it makes this whiny noise when I try to start it. We checked the simple stuff, like fuses, the spark plugs, and when you try to start it, it does sound like the fuel pump kicks in. Any advice on what this is?? My husband thinks it may be the timing belt. How do you check the timing belt to see if it is it?? Does this car have a fuel shut off switch? I had another car and that's all it was but I can't find one on this car. I don't even know if it has one. Also, one last question, how do you check for a spark from the spark plugs?? We just checked to make sure the caps were on the spark plugs. Any advice and help on these questions would be so greatly appreciated!!! Thank you so much!!
If it is the timing belt you should here misfire and this is how you check for spark, remove a lead from a plug at reach distance unloosen plug with a spark plug socket put plug into the lead you removed and hold close to something metal while someone turns the key and you should see a spark come out and hit the metal, if not try replacing the rotor button and coil.
