HELP!!! Car dies and won't start


Asked by May 11, 2015 at 01:12 PM about the 2001 Hyundai Accent GL Sedan FWD

Question type: Maintenance & Repair

Hi, I have a 2001 hyundai accent and it has
been cutting out for a second a few times in
a 50 mile trip and when it does this, it will
die on the on the off ramp. It won't start
after it dies but I can push start it to get it
going. Also, if I let it sit for awhile, I think an
hour plus it will start again. Any help or
suggestions will be very appreciated!!

I have put in new battery, terminals, plugs,
wires and fuel filter. I also checked for
vacuum leak. Thanks

Crazy enough bending the pins on the fuel pump relay seem to have made a difference. When I couldn't get to or from work without dying its made it a few times now. Thanks for the help!
