Have you checked your battery voltage? I bet if you've let it sit for a while, the battery is dead. Especially true if it's the original Hyundai battery. They are about the weakest part on the car. The part you are showing above is the cruise control module - the part which keeps you at speed (cable should be attached to the throttle somehow). If the battery ...

I believe there are two circuits which can run the vehicle: one when starting; one when running. IIRC, the starting circuit provides full voltage to the coil which gives a bit more juice for extra power when starting. As soon as you allow the key to go back from start to run, this circuit is disconnected. This leaves the run circuit. If you don't have power ...

This question is very multi faceted because fuel economy is such a complex topic. When a car is starting first the computer check the coolant temperature sensor to see how hot the engine is. In the memory of the computer there is a look up table that dictates how much fuel it should add for a specific temperature. This table is very conservative and the ...

It sounds like the engine will rotate on a start attempt but will not start and run. On this model the most common cause of this symptom is failure of the ignition coil or ignition igniter. Located in the distributor on most models these parts make the spark that ends up at the spark plugs. Fuel supply problems are not common on this model. The next step in ...

The fuse box turned out to be a red-herring. I had tried to start the car too many times causing the fuse box to melt. The correct answer was that the ignition switch has many contacts; One of those contacts is, presumably, the starter solenoid contact. This contact was not connecting when I turned the key. Try to move your key in the ignition if this ...

Sounds to me like the IAC valve (Idle Air Control Valve) needs to be replaced. It's not a hard thing to replace. The IAC opens and closes to allow air into the throttle body when the throttle blade(s) are closed (which is at idle). It might be dirty or have debris lodged in it which is causing it to act up. I've been able to replace them on older 2005 ...

If i remember your setup correctly you have a 4.3L Vortec engine. The fuel pressure regulator and plastic fuel lines commonly had issues in that engine. The regulator and lines are located inside the intake manifold and when it goes bad it floods the engine terribly. That engine has a fuel pressure port on the metal fuel line coming into the engine. Attach a ...

Well, I got it running! Just want to post an answer for anybody else that runs across this issue. It ended up being the Fuel Pressure Regulator on the CPI Injector Spider. This is a small and cheap ($35.00) part that is mounted on the side injector. and was very straightforward to replace. I simply had to remove the upper intake manifold, and all the ...

I suspect that the reason the vehicle will not start is that the fuel lines are dry. On diesel engined vehicles there is a priming procedure which is specific to the vehicle but may be completed by a plunger on top of the fuel filter in the engine bay or a separate "squeezy" hand pump in the fuel lines. This procedure must be completed if a diesel ever ...

5 years its too long. He should not try to start the engine without doing these steps: Empty the tank and get rid of the old diesel (of course, refill the tank with new fuel) Clean diesel filter Replace engine oil Replace oil filter Replace brake fluid Also have look this YouTube video: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=byqhfAl9-YE hope it help thanks ...

I am not sure about diesel, but regular fuel jelliefies over time. And five years sounds plenty long. In addition, you might live in a country that adds ethanol to its fuel. I read that this can also separate over time, though I have no direct experience with that. Summary: check the fuel. Is it still liqued?

I have also prefilled my oil filters when I can. There is a notable difference in the amount of time it takes for the gauge to register when comparing prefilled to not prefilled. The difference is still fairly small though, I guess about 2-3 seconds. Although it seems like a life time while you watch the gauge. I believe this is insignificant though. If you ...

From experience, my old Mazda 323-C Auto could be bump started at a speed of around 34mph (which is far too fast to push!). This was a traditional type auto box so I don't know how it would differ for something with a CVT / DSG gearbox. I used to carry jump leads in the boot of this car as the most effective way to starting any car but certainly an ...

This is called "run on" of the starter. It doesn't cause a huge issue if it doesn't happen too much or for too long, but basically the Bendix stays engaged in the flywheel ring gear an is being then driven by the engine. To further explain, the Bendix (or pinion drive mechanism) is the part on the end of the starter armature which engages the flywheel (or ...
