Why won't my car start

Asked by Oct 11, 2014 at 05:53 PM about the 2005 Hyundai Sonata

Question type: Maintenance & Repair

Every time I turn my ignition, my car starts but then almost immediately sputters and shuts
off again. I have no idea why this is, does anybody have a clue?

Could be just about anything. Ignition switch, spark plugs/coils, vacuum leak, etc. Is the Check engine light on? Any noises? Have it checked out.
