Question about 2001 Hyundai Elantra
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
