input and output sensors, if not them try mapping, all three blew out on my car and had that problem and was no codes it was because was not changing gears right.

Thank you William ! Hyundai told me yesterday it is the cranck shaft sensor and my valves lifters its costing me R6000 to fix or 600 us dollors lol but now i dont have to buy a new car !

My son’s Accent was doing the same thing also some times it would crank and just would not start. I changed the crank sensor and it runs like a dream . Takes about 10 mins to change. Not sure the sensor (proxy) is bad actually just looks like the tip is covered in corrosion. I think I will clean the old and put it to see if that’s all it was Happyman
