CAR WILL CRANK- BUT WON'T START

2007 Hyundai Elantra

Engine Mechanical problem
2007 Hyundai Elantra 4 cyl Two Wheel Drive Automatic 40,000 miles

My wife has owned her Elantra since 32,000 miles.I take great care of all of my cars.
For some reason all of a sudden in the last 4 days, she turns the key and the car seems to have great difficulty starting. Cranking. But no fire-up. She has to perform turning the key 3-4 times cranking until the car finally starts.

Questions 1. What could be preventing the car from turning over?

Question 2. Would this work be under Hyundai's warranty to get it fixed?

Thanks, in advance for your help.

Hi Steve,

If the warranty is still valid, then you can get Hyundai people to look at it.

However if it is out of normal warranty, it might be under extended warranty if the condition is under any of the categories.

To understand what is causing the problem, you need to perform test to localise the cause.

At bottom of post there is a " First Things To Check " link. Go through the process to get an idea what to look for and let me know what you find.
