Hyundai Mechanic: Amedee, Hyundai Technician replied 4 months ago

Are you saying that the engine will no longer crank over (no starter noise) after it has stalled out?

Are you looking for some possible causes?

Customer reply replied 4 months ago

Hyundai Mechanic: Amedee, Hyundai Technician replied 4 months ago

Ok sorry for the delay! Have you checked the fuses?

What about the battery and alternator? Where those checked?

Customer reply replied 4 months ago
brand optima battery new. Alt. Fuses are good it started smoking when it quit running
Hyundai Mechanic: Amedee, Hyundai Technician replied 4 months ago

Where was the smoke coming from?

Ask Your Own Hyundai Question
Customer reply replied 4 months ago
From under the hood around the valve cover and radiator and noticed Water under the car
Hyundai Mechanic: Amedee, Hyundai Technician replied 4 months ago

Maybe the water pump went bad? Was that checked or replaced?

Ask Your Own Hyundai Question
Customer reply replied 4 months ago
Water pump is new
Hyundai Mechanic: Amedee, Hyundai Technician replied 4 months ago

Ok, then you will need to figure out where the leak is coming from. That is the starting point. I cannot tell you where it is leaking as I am not in front of your vehicle..

You are more than welcome to figure out what is leaking and reply back so we can continue.

Ok it looked like it was leaking from the front of the car
Hyundai Mechanic: Amedee, Hyundai Technician replied 4 months ago

Maybe it is coolant from the radiator or washer fluid from the washer bottle..

You can use the tools on this page to upload and send me some pictures if you would like so I can take a look..
