I have a 2000 Hyundai Elantra, just yesterday and today I've had a few instances of sudden loss of power.

Driving along, the engine will run rough for about 10 seconds then just die all together. No warning lights etc on the dashboard. I noticed today that when it happened the Electric wipers went very very slow at the time. I pulled over, and it started fine again and was on my way, about 2 minutes later the same thing, this time however it won't restart and I notice when I turn the key I can not hear the fuelpump priming like I normally would. I would suspect the fuel pump however it was replaced only a couple of months ago. I give it a few minute try again and it starts. This time I just sat on the side of the road, waited 2-3 minutes and it went rough and died again.

Temp reading on dashboard is normal, never went much above the mid line.

What should I be looking at ?

I'm wondering if you got some water in your gas. – Pᴀᴜʟsᴛᴇʀ2 May 13 '14 at 14:20
