WHY DO I HAVE TO PUSH THE PEDAL TO THE FLOOR TO START?
I HAVE A 2003 HYUNDAI ELANTRA, 2.0L. I HAVE TO PUSH THE PEDAL TO
THE FLOOR TO GET IT TO START IN THE MORNINGS.
perhaps this video might help~ https://www.youtube.com/watch? v=kd-ix36A_Tk
what a great video!~
When you put the accelerator to the floor while cranking the computer goes into clear flood mode so that tells me that you may have some leaking injectors that floods out the engine overnight, do you notice black smoke when you first start the engine, also check you engine oil for excessive fuel in the oil.
NO SMOKE, IT BARELY CATCHES TO FIRE UP.
OOHH what is the compression?
PUSH THE PEDAL TO THE FLOOR TO GET IT TO START IN THE MORNINGS...sounds like an Idle air control valve https://www.rockauto.com/en/catalog/hyundai,2003,elantra,2.0l+ l4,1415809,fuel/air
Sorry Bob but an 03 doesn't have a choke, it is injected.
good point tennisshoes..I discovered the Idle air control, when I started shoppin' for that~
did I ever mention a choke? well whatever it has constricting and enriching the gas flow...might have to call up a picture to see what we're dealin' with here, but the throttle is NOT on a cable, but a little servo motor/resolver? I know the Koreans are a tiny bit behind on the technology, perhaps they were just saving a buck by doin' it the old fashioned way...am going to have to look at the drawings~
