Question about Hyundai Motor 1998 Accent
Intermittent problem with starting the car. The engine turns-over but it will not catch so I doubt if it is a starter-motor/alternater/battery problem. Not fuel related either, as the problem has occured at various fuel levels (last time on a full tank). This never happens first thing in the morning or when the engine has been idle for a long period of time. The problem usually happens after a journey has already been made and the car is re-started before the engine gets the chance to fully cool down (approx 30 mins - 1 hour idle time). Recent case: 10 minute journey to shopping centre, return after 45mins, car does not start. Keep trying for 10 mins, still nothing. Wait another 30-40 mins and the car starts first time. The car is 1998 Accent, 1.5 Mvi. Thank you.
Intermitten problems are the worse, when it wont start check fuel pressure with a gauge, and then check for spark, i have spent days on problems such as this, what you have to find is what is missing, fuel ,spark, is maybe coolant leaking into one or more cyls, i have seen air in the fuel system that only cause problems when under hood temp is high, open the hood and it cools enough to to start, hope this helps

Testimonial: "Thanks for replying. My initial thought is that the problem is temp related, so I will try your suggestion of leaving the bonnet open."
