Hi please help My engine wont crank when engine is hot, what could be the problem, I can only start it by push start or I will have to wait for the engine to cool down a bit.


It behaves as if the battery has no power, but starts perfectly when cold. I replaced the battery so it cant be.

When you attempt to start it when it's hot do you hear a loud clicking sound from the engine?

This is not a Hyundai specific answer, so treat it as somewhat suspect. On some other cars, this symptom is often caused by a bad/marginal starter. It is able to turn the crank when it is cold, but once the starter gets good and hot (from the hot engine) it is not strong enough to turn the crank until the starter motor cools off. I think that this mostly applied to the old non permanent magnet type starters, so it may not apply here.
