Re: where is the fuel filter on a 2000 hyndai elantra
If it's anything like the 2000 Hyundai Accent (which it probably is) it is mounted on top of the gas tank. First make sure you have a tank that is less than half full (8lbs per gallon), then jack up the car and place jackstands in a secure place. Then place a jack and 2x4 under the tank. Remove the 2 straps and slowly lower the fuel tank, it's most likely on the passenger side on top of the tank.

- Spark Plugs (make sure they are gaped properly) - Spark Plug Wires - Coil Packs (if needed) or Distributor Cap & Rotor (which ever so equipped) - Air Filter - Fuel Filter - Oil - Oil Filter - Transmission Filter (optional) - Transmission Fluid (optional if you do change the trans filter you will need the fluid) - PCV Valve (optional) - Bottle Of Fuel Injector Cleaner (add to fuel tank kind)
Sounds like a fuel pressure problem. Check/inspect your electrical connections to the fuel pump (power & ground). Also, connect a fuel pressure gauge to the fuel line at the fuel injector rail - leave it connected so if and when you have this problem again, you will be able to determine if the cause is fuel pressure/pump.
Check inside the trunk on the side of the fuel door. Most manufacturers make an emergency release handle for just such situations. It may be behind the trunk liner but should be on the same side of the vehicle as the door is.
