I was driving my 03 Accent with 110k miles in traffic yesterday and it
sputtered and died.
I have tried to start it a few times since and it spins over but shows no
signs of life.
It did have a rare miss when I was lugging in the wrong gear, i attributed
that to poor quality fuel and poor driving on my part.
I changed the timing belt 10 months ago and used a Hyundai factory belt.
I had just filled the car up the day before and there was plenty of fuel.
The battery was good and it cranks over fine, i tried turning the engine
by hand and there still seems to be compression.
It didn't show a check engine light until it wouldn't run.
Is there a common failure point on these engines ?
Should I buy a code reader as a next step ?
I havnt really had time to finish the fuel, air, compression, spark, testing
I am very busy at work right now and really need to fix this thing as
quickly and correctly as possible. I may only have one day to work on it
I was really liking this car until it left me stuck on the side of the road.
