I have a 2000 hyundai accent 1.4 and recently when I try to start the car it wont start. I can hear it try to start but wont. I try for a roughly 3 times just keep turning the key for 5 seconds then stopping and then it will start, any ideas? I has the battery replaced last year.

Do you
have the same problem?

It sounds like a fuel pressure issue. I Would start by checking fuel pump pressure. There are directions on our homepage under the DIY section.

Okay thanks, the engine managment light has also been on so could the light be part of this?

If the light has been on, have the computer scanned to identify trouble codes. That should help identify where the problem is coming from.
