Question about 2001 Hyundai Elantra

1 Answer

My 2003 Hyundai Elantra Starts by then Dies, as though it's not getting gas.

I was driving and the car died as I was at a stop sign. I turned the ignition and it fired right up, but then when I hit another stop sign it died again, so I drove it home. That's when I noticed a puddle on the ground, on the gas tank side. I stuck a finger in the stain and it smelled like gasoline. I took it for a test drive today and it did the same thing, by dying at a stop. When I brough it home I let it idle in the parked position and it ran for a little then died. Can this be as simple as a fule filter, or does it seem like a fuel pump? Also, on average how much does it cost to replace a fuel pump and or filter?

No! If you can start it right back up I seriously doubt it but you do ablsolutely need to change fuel filters every 15,000 miles and forget about oil changes they do nothing for the car. But a plugged fuel filter will kill a fuel pump and average cost of a gob like that here in Seattle is around $500-700.
But you need to find that leak and fix it you can be loosing enough fuel pressure through that leak to cause a problem like yours.
Please rate me as a fixya! Thank you Randy

The idle is set too low, the alternator is not charging enough, poor battery connection, filthy throttle body, dirty air filter are some of the most common causes of stalling at lower rpms.
