2002 Hyundai Elantra GLS won't start

Asked by Nov 25, 2016 at 10:00 PM about the 2002 Hyundai Elantra GLS

Question type: Maintenance & Repair

Hi everyone,

I have an 02 Elantra, with 125k on it. It is having a number of symptoms- when the car starts it idles low (150-300RPM), sometimes upon starting the car will putter and jerk then be fine other times it dies and will restart after a few minutes. These problems started occurring when the car was low on fuel (quarter of a tank or less) but currently the car has a full tank and will not start.

All the lights will come on, as will the radio. The battery has no visible corrosion. The car is not clicking when trying to start- it just seems as if the fuel is not igniting. The check engine light is not on and has not come on.

So far I have replaced the spark plugs and wires- which did not fix the problem.

Any ideas? Anyone had a similar problem?
