Question about 2005 Hyundai Tucson

1 Answer

2005 huyndia tuscon takes several times to started-doesn't happen each time, but every day-noted to begin after 1/2 tank gas added-put additives in-down to 1/2 tank of gas again-appears to happen more when recently started. We can hear the fuel pump working. Is is just bad gas or is it soemthing else?

Sounds like you may have either dirt, sediment, water in the base of your fuel tank, I would have the gas analysed and if it is contaminated have the tank drained, the fuel filter replaced the lines flushed and the injectors serviced, hope this helps.

Car will not start

Because the engine turns over means your started had enough voltage to turn ON. You can easily test the voltage on the battery with a volt meter. It should be about 12.0 Volts when the engine is not running. Batteries should normally be charged every few days for about 1/2 hour each time. You can go a short time for a couple of weeks without charging as long as you don't get in to a habit of doing that. If you went for months without running your car; I assumed you had to replace the battery already or your battery would not have been able to turn over the engine or hold a charge.

The automatic door locking is the least of your problems. It might be your car did not have a battery of proper voltage for an extended period of time.

Gasoline does not age well if you did not place any additive for prolonged storage. Even the additive for prolong storage says about a 6 month period. Maybe you should take out some gasoline from your tank to see if it still looks good. I normally don't fill my tank but every 1 to 2 months (without a problem) with no additive added, but 1 year is a long time. My guess is 1 year old gasoline may have changed over time and thickened and it could have contaminated your fuel system.

Depending on how old and how much fuel is in the tank can affect your next step. If the fuel is the problem; you will have to drain the tank and possibly have someone use one of the pressurized fuel cleaning treatments. You might need a new fuel filter, and I know there is a pressure regulator to return the fuel to the tank as well as fuel injectors and the fuel rail. I have never had gasoline that old, so you might need a professional mechanic if you are dealing with old fuel in the system.

The only gasoline I trust to age over time is Coleman fuel in a sealed container (also known as white gas). This can be found where they sell outdoor camping equipment. I don't know if that will help, but I had to run 1 gallon of this in 1992 Oldsmobile 88 because there was no gasoline. Coleman fuel is ultra refined gasoline without the extra additives they normally put in gasoline.

Foel problem

When you smelt fuel, It was flooded. Your best bet would be to replace the spark plugs. Gas will foul them out, just like oil.

My car ran out of gas, and now that i put more gas in it ... it still will not start..

1st off this car is fuel injected, there is no carburetor. How much gas did you put in the tank? At least 3 gallons is required many times to get the tiny electric fuel pump to not **** air. If adding more gas doesn't get it started you may have burned out the electric fuel pump, the reason is this, the electric fuel pump that is inside the fuel tank depends on the gas it sits and runs in for cooling and lubrication, so when you run out of gas it can and may times does destroy the fuel pump many times, this is even more so true on cars with lots of miles on the pump. You can try adding more fuel and taking a rubber hammer and hitting the bottom of the tank while someone turns the engine over, this may free up the pump, if not then the pump must be replaced, this requires the fuel tank to be removed from the car to gain access to the fuel pump.

I have fuel in gas tank-after shutting off will not start unless I put gas into fuel tank. Is it a fuel filter issue. or?

Just a question. Do you run your car on empty. If so that could be your problem with an empty tank you are sucking all the dirt through the filter and making it plug up. It is better to keep your tank above half full and does not cost any more than to run on empty. All mechanics will tell you to always keep your tank above half full.

if u dont change the feul filtre it will get worse. when adding cleaners and additives to your gas tank it cleans and puts all the dirt and crud in the fuel filtre thus making it hard for the feul pump to pump the exact psi for the rating of your car

In my opinion it is caused by having too little gas in the tank. You are not suppose to run it it with that little gas anyways because it is bad for your car since all the contaminants can be sucked into the injectors and cause all kinds of problem.
