Having problems with your Hyundai Motor 1999 Elantra ?

Car died while driving, will turn over but won't start

Answers :

I suggest you check the fuel supply, hoses, filter, spark plugs, air filter and possibly injectors too if it is a direct injection engine. You can also get the crank sensor (TDC) checked but I would leave this as a last resort.

2003 Alero (3.4) wont start or even attempt to turn over until jumped. While driving I can hear whining through the speakers (with radio off) that matches the engine RPMs. Once I turn the car off, it loses all power, no gauge lights, radio or anything and wont start until I jump it. I also noticed that when in park if I quickly punch the gas I lose RPMs before the engine revs up...sometimes the car will stall and then restart itself on it's own...other times it will die and all my dash light


Wow, that is quite the electrical psychoanalysis :0) You have got some major electrical issues going on here. Well, the first things that I would suspect to even get a little idea as to what is going on, considering that you have multiple systems w ... 2003 Oldsmobile Alero

1996 ford contour, started it this morning, turned it around to back into my parking spot, let the car warm up for about 15 minutes, got in, couldn't get it out of park, turn the car off, and now it wont start again. jumped it, it started, let it run for a little while, started to drive it, started chugging and then died, now it won't start again.


One thing to look at is the large black plastic "bellows" that comes from the intake plemun towards the air filter. It is common for these to get brittle and crack over time, especially in cold weather. The crack may be closed when the car is in ne ... Ford Contour

You need to isolate the problem. If it starts when you spray carb cleaner into the throttle body while cranking then problem is in fuel system.(pump, pump relay, filter or fuse) If not, then look into ignition system. Use any manual to get specific t ... 2006 Toyota Corolla

1998 Explorer limited edition - battery light on, car just died and battery wont turn on to start car or allow me to roll up windows. is this something i can fix with just a new battery? does it involve the alternator? if i let it sit awhile could it start again? if it does start will it make it to the shop or will it die while i am driving again?


This really does sound like an alternator problem. If you let the car sit for a while, it may develop enough surface sharge to start the car, but it will only get you about 1/4 mile before it stalls again. Technically, with an operational alternato ... 1998 Ford Explorer

Stats: Ford Bronco xlt. 1985. 170,000 miles. New Starter. Oil & Oil filter replaced as of a week ago. Carbs cleaned with "Carb Cleaner" and a toothbrush. All original parts, otherwise. Now my issue is, my car wont STAY running. I turn the key and it starts - no problem. Engine turns over and sounds fine..just like it normally does. If i sit there though, or even if i drive and come to a stop light, the car wont STAY alive! It will bog out and die. This ride wont keep an idle. Why do


This is a carb vehicle right. You didnt say whether or not you adjusted the idle screw on the side where the cable attaches. This could be your reason. . \015\012Also there are a couple real small holes in the venturi where you cleaned. Is it ... Ford Bronco

My 95 dodge intrepid used to die at various times. most the times was driving down the highway, so i would pull over to the side of the road and the car would just turn itsself back on and drive fine for the rest of the trip. some days it wouldnt die at all and some days it would die 5 times. the diffrence in weather didnt seem to matter weather it was wet dry hot or cold. now it wont start at all it tries but it wont kick over and the fuel pressure is fine.


I would investigate the crank position sensor-there could be your problem-i have seen this many times ... 1995 Dodge Intrepid

Hi, i drive a 1985 ford Bronco. It has a carburated motor. I noticed lately that it wont keep an idle. When im not driving or revving the engine, it slows down to a sputter and dies on me. I bought carb cleaner for it and sprayed some down the valve by the air filter. Once i turned the car on shortly after doing that, it seemed to have CHOKED the car out or something. It wont start AT ALL now!!!!! :( Did i break it? What's the deal???


Naw,you did not break it,it may have flooded it out.The carburetor most likely is flooding already,and the carb.cleaner just helped it stall the rest of the way.Hold the accelerator to the floor,and turn it over until it starts,continue to hold the p ... Ford Bronco

I have a 1999 dodge durango. After shutting it off after a drive, it doesn't start. The code reader says its the can sensor.I have changed the cam sensor twice,. The car will crank but not start, it has no spark. I changed the coil and check all the wires/connections. Sometimes if i pour water on the right side of the motor it will start no problem.. It never stalls or dies when driving, but if i turn it off it wont start again. If i leave it for a couple hours, it will start Any ideas?


I would try the crank sensor and pick up coil ... 1999 Dodge Durango

Start it up then you can drive maybe ten minutes then it dies or if you turn car off you cannot get it started again it sounds as if it will turn over when starting but it wont it also sounds like it will miss timing while running and idles a bit fast i did not have any problems until i had someone try to install a stereo and im guessing that maybe this has something todo with security type issue because i can see wires have been cut under dash and steering


Well you could start with the wires because cut wires are never good but it also sounds ike a fuel pump they can heat up and shut off and they have to cool back down befor they start again unless it felt like dieing. when this happens again chck on y ... BMW 525
