Sometimes cranking but won't fire up

Posted by chrome33 on Jul 06, 2008 Report abuse

Hi, My 2001 Hyundai Accent sometimes turns on but will not start only after about half hour. Same, sometimes stalls while running and again it will turn on but will not start for about half hour. What is the problem?

Comment by chrome33, posted on Jul 08, 2008Thank you very much for your answer.

I would say that it happens when the engine is hot.
First time my wife started the engine moved the car into a different spot and after a few minutes it was cranking but won't fire up. It just started to rain. I checked for spark but there wasn't any. I checked fuses, wires, etc but nothing helped. After half hour it fired up again and run as usual. 2nd time I stopped at the bank, it was raining again and it won't fire up again, only cranking. So almost naturally I thought that moisture got in somewhere. But 3rd it was sunny and just stalled at a stop sign. Again cranking but won't fire up. 4th time at gas station, I filled it up and did the same: cranking but not firing up. After maybe 15-20 minutes it fired up but stalled when trying to move on. Did this for 5 minutes and after that if fired up, I kept it on higher rev for as long I could and did not stall again.

I went to the dealership and they told me the same: probably CKP. They also told me about ECT too.

I checked the net for the same problem and it worries me that some guys did change CKP and other stuf and they still have the same problem.

I will probably change the CKP ($116 at the dealership) and will wait to see.

Is there any way to check if indeed the CKP is faulty? The dealership said no.
What about ECT, can I check it if it is faulty? And how to check for lose fuel presure? I would like to rule out what is not faulty because I can't afford to spend money on unnecessary parts.

Thanks a lot.

    Thank you, your answers are very helpful.
    I already ordered the Crankshaft Position Sensor from the internet (for half the dealer price) and waiting to receive it (hopeful in a few days).
    I will install it and let you know if it solves the problem.

    Saturday I changed the Crankshaft Position Sensor and since than the car runs without any problems. Now time will tell if this was the the problem or the only problem. I hope so.
    In case that anybody has the same problem and would like a CKP you can try or on E-Bay .
    Thank you very much ARJAAS for your help.

as we say the main causes is CKP sensor but you can't test it in this case because of interments fault of it when hot only
it is electromagnetic sensor have a coil and magnetic core

about ECT
it is electrical thermo resister have tow wire
1st is the ground
2nd is the 5 volt from ECU drop down with temperature increase
