And The Crap Gets Deeper!

On my way to Scottsdale this morning, in Car, to pick up parts for Bike at Western, when the car gave a convulsive lurch accompanied by a fairly loud noise. 30 seconds later, in the middle lane of I-10, in downtown Phoenix, the car quit and would not re-start.

Cop came by and stopped traffic and hand pushed me to the side of the road. I called the AMA towing service and they said they didn't have my info. Called the main number to get things sorted out, but the fix won't show up until Tuesday.

Meanwhile I had called Frank and he showed up with a tow rope. We tied up, I gave the key a quick blip and the car started, so we untied and he followed me about 3 miles and the car quit again, so we towed it to my place.

Anybody have an idea? This is posted in the Hyundai forum as well, but got no response from there, yet.It'sa 2002 Accent. I know we have some car guys here.

Why ain't we ridin'?

Sounds like the sort of thing that happens to GL1200s when they quit. So I'm guessing the crank position sensor.

With no God over the state, the state then becomes not the defender of liberty but the definer of liberty.

If I disagree with you it's simply because you're wrong.

One of the pulse generators is going bad.

The crank po sensor was mentioned on the Hyundai site and he described a way to check it with the tach. That's something for the morning. Another possibility is there is something with the "pulse coils"? or something like that, which is the PGs, right?

One other thing my brother mentioned was fuel filter. I don't even know if that car has one, but it surely has never been changed. Frank was saying he though it seemed like a fuel issue. So...

I think my best move will be to borrow or buy one of those code readers and see what it has to say.

I would say they're the same thing with just a different name.

Had one of those. Fuel filter. It left me in the parking lot. The back pressure manages to unclog it for awhile after shut off

I make sense all the time. The problem is you only listen intermittently

Right, pulse coils, PGs, crank sensor, same thing. Filter would have shown gradual power loss symptoms. Yes a scan tool (code reader) would be helpful, if the check engine light came on just as it died.
