Car Stopped Running
Trying to fix my buddies car right now - I'll give you the symptoms and keep updating as we work throughout the day.
Car is a 2005 Hyandai Accent GT
We were sitting in an intersection, and the car turns off. Couldn't restart the car, towed it back to our apartment with a rope. The battery checks out fine and the engine turns over when trying to start it.
We have opened up the throttle and cleaned out the idle air control, it's full of black oil-like substance (is this normal?)
Could this be a fuel problem? (injectors, main pump?)
All fuses check fine - I'm in the process of looking for a wiring diagram to do resistance checks.
Thanks so much guys! Your input is greatly appreciated!
