Hyundai Lantra wont start

I got really dirty fuel from servo and had to replace Filter and fluch line. Car was running hairy. replaced plugs and checked leads still running hairy. took injectors out to and got reconditioned by pro and now car won't start at all.
I checked the fuel, flow is good checked the pots, they are getting fuel. plenty of spark but. fires up but wont run. smells like it is flooding but won't even run for 5 secs :-(
It is like it has immobiliser on. but isn't!
not sure what else to check??

if it will start with either it has to be a fuel issue. if the pump is good you need to check the power supply to the pump.

Check vacuum and/or electrical connections at the fuel pressure regulator,usually located on the fuel rail near the line from the gas tank. It sounds like your regulator is being held 'wide open' by too much vacuum or no signal from ECU.

Is your check engine light on? I have the same probelm with my 2002 Elantra. I think it may be connected to the O2 sensor with regulates the emissions, and can cause poor fuel economy. I know I need to get it fixed, but am waiting for funds to do so. Does it seem worse after you fill it with gas? I am just curious since that is what mine does.

P0301 - Cylinder 1 Misfire Detected.

Possible Causes:
- Improper spark plug at cylinder #1
- Insufficient compression at cylinder #1
- Incorrect fuel pressure
- The injector circuit is open or shorted at cylinder #1
- Fuel injector #1 may be faulty
- Intake air leak at cylinder

Possible Solutions:
- Perform Injector Service
- Replaced Spark Plug #1
- Replaced Injector #1
- Replaced Ignition Coil #1

Being you have a heavy gas smell I would look into the injectors. If injector #1 is over producing it can cause a misfire. Test your compression and fuel pressure.

Either a weak battery or a defective starter. Have you checked your battery voltage when it will not crank? Cleaned your battery terminals?

Why wont my car accelerate


Hi, it could be a blocked fuel filter or fuel pump failure. The second could be a vacuum leak somewhere in the system. The fuel parts can be replaced easily. The vacuum leak has to be chased down. Depending on the year of the car it could also be a computer issue.

93 volvo 850 glt changed the fuel pump now car wont start. Engine cranks, fuel pump working, fuel getting to the motor but it wont start. The car had trouble starting sometimes so i changed the fuel...


Check your fuel pressure to ensure proper pressure to the block, also did you replace the fuel filter.

On a side note: 3 things a automobile needs to run

AIR-make sure you have a clean air filter and your MAF (mass air flow sensor is plugged in) if you pulled your breather to innspect anything, there is a possibility that it came unplugged or you unpluged it and forgot to hook it back up, a car wont start without it being plugged in if equiped

SPARK-Make sure your car has juice to the plugs, if the plug doesnt fire the car wont run, if you have to pull each plug and ground them to the engine block to see if they arch. If not trace the problem down (if you changed the fuel pump you have some mechanical skill and should be able to troubleshoot a spark issue)

FUEL-Check for proper pressure, dirty fuel filter(s) and if your system has a return line, make sure your hoses didnt get crossed cause this will damage the engine and regulator.

Hope this helps Thanks for using Fixya.com
