I checked the relay, OK, Had been meaning to replace crank pos sensor I already had it on hand. The check eng lite has been on, my scanner showed crank sensor and "temp too low for a closed loop sys, what the ____?" Anyway, after replacing sens, 'check eng lite' went out scanner showed no faults put everything back together, my car started right up. Who would've thought?
I had gotten the older cars 'you know' open hood you have a motor and a tranny, none of these confounding sensors, computers, etc. Thank goodness for youtube showed me how to check start relay, I already had one in my Amazon cart!
I've had little trouble w/my '07 elantra, smallest big thing was timing belt stripped out "stripped out" had bent valves. Made a rookie mistake and bought rebuilt head online, that's a nightmare for a different forum. I'll never buy anything from Clear Water Cylinder heads ever again and deal locally for critical things like I should've done to begin with. If I still had my shop tools I would've done the job myself, there wasn't room during the move from Missouri.
Bottom line is, my car runs again and gets 31mpg, before crank sensor replacement, haven't had a chance to drive it around, just got it running tonight.
