2000 Hyundai Santa Fe Hard To Start

I have a 2000 Hyundai Santa FE and if it sits a couple of hours or more it is hard to start. Can you help me?

When a vehicle sits for a while after it has been run or driven, the engine goes through what is called a ‘heat soak’. This means it basically gets hotter for a little bit before cooling off. This is, many times, the point a part or device will fail. Ignition components and modules, and even fuel system components can suffer during this period.

A hard starting condition can mean the vehicle isn’t getting the proper air/fuel mixture, or spark to ignite the combustion process. Usually it will fire after trying a couple of times. Common causes are lack of fuel pressure due to a fuel pump that isn’t putting out what it should, a restriction such as a clogged fuel filter, or a leak somewhere in the system such as a fuel pressure regulator. Ignition components act the same when affected by this, and usually the culprit is a faulty ignition module.

Other times there can be a computer sensor that is going bad such as a crankshaft position sensor or camshaft position sensor. Even a computer that is going bad can cause this condition. Obviously, you have a quite a few things to check out now, so good luck!

Hyundai Wont Go Into Gear

I have 2006 Hyundai Tiburon se. I recently replaced the clutch slave cylinder last week. When my car is on idle the shift is not going into gear but when the car is off it does. So while my car was off I put in the first gear and I start it the car I took the hand break off and my car start it to move without releasing the clutch. My car was moving toward while I was holding the clutch .

Answer: You either have to adjust the cylinder, bleed the slave cylinder or you got the wrong part. Make sure that the rod is installed also.
