Engine Performance problem
2007 Hyundai Accent 4 cyl Two Wheel Drive Automatic 90000 miles
I have had a problem for some time now with this car, its going to sound strange but this is exactly what happens. The check engine lite comes on some times and now is on all the time I had it checked several times got two different responses, one vapor canistor, two misfire clyd 4, however everytime I stop to get gas I cannot get my car started without holding the pedal to the floor and as it grinds its slowly starts to start up, like its catching up with itself and I have to slowly let up the pedal to let it return to reg idle speed, however it sometimes chokes and sputters for a min or so then levels out and runs great again until I get gas again and it happens every time I get gas,
So I have pulled the fuel pump because I could not get the car started I had grinded and grinded it with the pedal to the floor and not, with it making no attempt to start, acting like it wasn't getting gas, so back to the fuel pump, I now noticed there are actually 3 things of interest in this assembly, the pump, regulator, and filter I can get the the whole assembly delivered for about $180.00 but, I would like to know a couple things before I purchase this.
1. I have tested the pump out of the car it runs and has somewhat good pressure, however I dont know what the pressure is supposed to be so. Thats one thing I need
2. I have ordered a Doorman evap valve just because this is what came up months ago when one person tested the car, could this valve be the complete reason for all my problems and I need maybe not order the complete fuel pump assembly? Or do you think I have two different problems going on here?
3. And last could the fuel pump be pumping ok and the Fuel regulator be the culprit and I need only replace that item?
I just hate to replace the complete fuel pump assembly unit when it may only be a 30.00 to 40.00 part, however I dont really want to put it all back together and end up with the same problem again,
I apologize for the length of this question but I tried to give you the most information I could about my problem/problems
Thanks for any help!
Oh and I have already replaced the gas cap also!
have the same problem?
