Not new to forums, but new to Hyundais. Anyways, my g/f has a 2003 Elantra with a 2.0. Recently we replaced the fuel filter, charcoal canister and whatnot to fix the problem of not being able to fill it up without the pump clicking and turning off. Now that works great!
However, lately her car will randomly decide not to accelerate and she will have to coast for awhile before she can get it to accelerate. Also, it will randomly die at intersections/stop signs and the problem seems to be getting worse.
I just put in a bottle of complete fuel system cleaner and plan on doing a Seafoam treatment (minus putting it in the oil) in the near future. On my Honda I use the brake booster line. As I am COMPLETELY unfamiliar with her car...letalone any Hyundais can you guys direct me where to do this? Pictures are always great! I've searched and checked out DIY's but didnt really see anything helpful.
With this in mind I am thinking either bad pcv valce or clogged egr? Again, ive cleaned the egr on my Honda but am clueless on this. Maybe crank sensor...hope not since ive never replaced one of those before.
The CEL is on and is giving an evap code. Has about 118k miles.
With this, the car was bought for $800 from a family friend because it got hit on the passenger side door...so not looking to spend tons of money. Just want to keep it running/reliable.
Any help or links to DIY's would be great! Thanks!
