My car died and doesn't start

Asked by Oct 11, 2017 at 03:38 AM about the 2009 Hyundai Accent

Question type: Maintenance & Repair

Engine shut down while driving.  Makes this
strange whining noise and cranks, but fails to turn
over.  It's not my fuel pump.  I'm worrying it's my
timing belt. I had the serpentine brunt replaced 4
months ago.  How can I check to see if it's the
timing belt easily? I don't want to have to take off
the other belts and lack $, $$$. $$ for anow
educated mechanic.

cranks, but fails to turn over ?? up ya mean ...try and watch some YOUTUBE movies.

. .U know what I meant. Turn over is equal to start. (Looking around murmuring wtf)

If tou have issues when it’s hot out open your gas tank and then start it. My 2008 Hyundai Accent was cranking, but not turning over I noticed I had 1/4 tank of gas so. Tried this and started within 5 min haven’t had any issues since. Just to be safe I’m going to replace the fuel filter since it’s never been done and I’m at 125,400 miles.

See my question for answer on crank issues. Lol
