car won't start

Asked by Feb 23, 2009 at 07:57 PM about the 2001 Hyundai Elantra

Question type: Maintenance & Repair

My car has had head redone and new head gasket put on.  When the engine is cool the car starts up fine.  When the car warms up it does not want to start.  When warm and the key is turned when the starter first turns it sounds like the motor will start but then the starter just turns.  Wait 15-30 minutes and the car will start.

when you had head redone did you have it skimmed if so was the thickness of the gasket increased by amount skimmed off or maybe head bolts not done up tight enough and warping gasket ever so slightly under heat also take plugs out check for damage or crap does it continue running once started ??????
