Perhaps you are doing nothing wrong. Fuel delivery also includes the fuel filter but that would ordinaryly show on higher engine speed starvation. Does engine move forward in engine bay when you release pressure on gas pedal? If so, it may be a bad electrical connection Check ground connections and wiring. Once car stops, engine settles back in original position to start again.Just some possible problems to this sympton. Is there a vacuum leak at idle?

Have you changed the timing belt? or timing belt guides? How many miles? This does not necessarily have to do with fuel.... Could have to do with air intake or timing as well....

Check the fuel pump pressure using a fuel pump pressure guage. It would not necessarily be unheard of to have a new, but bad, fuel pump. No or low pressure, then take the pump back and get another one.

This has happened all of a sudden?
It is sounding like it is starving for fuel...

First we will check for bad fuel. A GOOD Gasline Antifreeze can get the impurities and water out of the Gas. Get a bottle and pour the whole thing in the gas tank, bounce the car around to mix it with the fuel. Start it and let it run for a little while so see if it smooths out. If does not help then look at replacing the fuel filter as it may be clogged.

2005 sonata has been sitting for 3 months ,replaced battery yesterday but car just keeps cranking over'Idon't think it is getting fuel.


hi if the car was running ok when it was parked up and the battery is cranking at a resonable tourqe you will get it started with a bump start it may need to tow started as the valves and valve seats in your car get a build up of carbon fossilisation which results in low compressions i am presuming you not had a bump in it and thats why its been laid up becase if this is the case it will have triggered the fuel cut out switch just reset the switch yates210456
