Question about Cars & Trucks
Posted by Anonymous on
Did you have the sugar cleaned out of the gas tank? If not, you don't have electrical problems. You have fuel problems. The sugar gums up everything. The fuel pump, the filter and the injectors. Did two cars from the same family. Had to replace the fuel pumps, filters and all the injectors (couldn't even have them professionally cleaned). Cleaned out the tanks and all the fuel lines. Their insurance covered the parts and labor.

I had the same problem recently. Was quoted $400 - 500 for a fix, but when they got in there it was just a wiring issue. Still cost $220, but that was labor only, took about 3 hours to fix.

The battery is there to start the vehicle, once running the alternator takes over and provides the power for all electrical. It sounds like your alternator went out on you. Thats is where I would start. Hope this helps

Testimonial: "Thank you very much. I'll start there. "
If your lazy... sounds like you might be in regards to this car than I would at least pull the plugs (inpect them for corrosion or damage and squirt oil in the cylinders not too much, you cant spin the engine after 4years without lubricating the motor. Than see if it combusts using starting fluid, it it does fire then address the fuel system and clean. Good Luck, I think you will be ok but 4 year old gas is like varnish...

Just helped a friend fix this exact same issue on his 2004 hyundai santa fe. Replaced the purge control valve - a $39 part, even from the dealer. Had to get our hands dirty, but it took literally one single hour to replace the part. Filled it up immediately afterward and no more starting problems. Part is located directly behind the manifold - top, rear of the engine compartment - just between the engine
