    My '98 Accent sometimes won't start after I shut it off. It on;y happens
    when the engine is warm. The engine light is on (sometimes). I had it
    checked about 6 months ago and the mechanic said the trouble code was for
    the fuel canister solonoid (?) or something like that. I think I saw a post
    on here a while ago with someone that had the same problem. Can this sensor
    make the car not start? Thanks!

    No, my mechanic told me it wouldn't affect how the car runs so I decided to
    save the $300 he said the sensor cost.....

    Does your Accent have a tachometer? How many kilos on it?

    yes it has a tach, doesn't show anything abnormal at idle or while driving.
    It has 173,000km's......

    Next time it doesn't start, see if the tach needle bounces while you crank
    the engine.

    It's probably the sensor acting up when it's warm, so with the
    OE scanner, this problem is very easy to troubleshoot. take
    your car to a Hyundai dealer.
