Original problem , overheated on the interstate, pulled to the shoulder immediately,I already new that i had a low coolant sensor that needs replacement, however once the car cooled and water put into radiator,
the engine try's to turn over, I jump started 3 times no effect, next checked
ignition fuse [good] next checked fuel pump relay by swapping it with a suitable substitute and tried it still would'nt start . so my questio i swhere is th easiest place to break the gas line to see if the car is pumping gas to the engine or not.

I would have started with a compression check. There is a good chance that you have a warped or cracked head, or a blown head gasket at the least. Aluminum heads do not like getting overheated. But even this does not mean that the engine is junk, you just have to decide if it is worth fixing.
Your transmission fluid is dangerously low (tranny is dry). The pops & jerks are the transmission internal components trying not to seize onto each other due to lack of lubrication and/or overheating. Low transmission fluid leads not only to loss of lubrication but lots of overheating (of the tranny). The loss of Elantra performance (speed tops out at 55), is caused by power loss due to friction inside the transmission. All your power is lost overheating the transmission (toward destruction), instead of being transmitted through the transmission to the wheels.
The 2004 Elantra takes Hyundai SP-III Automatic Transmission Fluid, with 8.4 quarts used in a total refill - but just 5 quarts at a fluid change. For How-to transmission fluid change instructions:
www.autozone.com claims that 2004 Hyundai Elantra can take these non-Hyundai ATF's: Lucas Semi-Synthetic Multivehicle ATF Pennzoil Muilt Vehicle ATF Valvoline Maxlife Dex/Merc ATF Castrol High Mileage ATF
It is not likely the thermostat, because the thermostat is showing that it is overheating,so it is working, you must have a coolant leak somewhere. You will have to find coolant leak. Car is overheating because it is low on coolant
NO. These models do not have warnings on the transmission failure. There is warnings only when the transmission encounters electrical component failure, overheating(some cars), low fluid. Usually the warning is the O/D flashing light, or a seperate transmission light. Hopefully this helps
its all the same the headlight is a complete unit you adjust both/ look for screws behind the headlight one each side one is for horizontal annd the other is for vertical Please rate my response thank you very much
