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 it is cranking fine 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.

Steve

Hey Zogman,

Yes this is a common engine hard starting issue. It sounds like it could be the mass air flow sensor needs to be cleaned or you have a tear in the air intake boot. Here are some guides that will help you find the problem.
