Having problems with your Hyundai Motor 1998 Accent ?
Car not starting - Intermittent
\015 Intermittent problem with starting the car. The engine turns-over but it will not catch so I doubt if it is a starter-motor/alternater/battery problem. Not fuel related either, as the problem has occured at various fuel levels (last time on a full tank). This never happens first thing in the morning or when the engine has been idle for a long period of time. The problem usually happens after a journey has already been made and the car is re-started before the engine gets the chance to fully cool down (approx 30 mins - 1 hour idle time). Recent case: 10 minute journey to shopping centre, return after 45mins, car does not start. Keep trying for 10 mins, still nothing. Wait another 30-40 mins and the car starts first time. The car is 1998 Accent, 1.5 Mvi. Thank you.\015
Intermitten problems are the worse, when it wont start check fuel pressure with a gauge, and then check for spark, i have spent days on problems such as this, what you have to find is what is missing, fuel ,spark, is maybe coolant leaking into one or more cyls, i have seen air in the fuel system that only cause problems when under hood temp is high, open the hood and it cools enough to to start, hope this helps
