Hyundai Lantra winds over

Asked by Dave Mills

My 1998 Hyundai Lantra winds over, but won't start when it's hot, but leave it for 10 min and it will go and drive fine until you stop it again. What's wrong with it?

I'd say the battery could be tired and lacking the grunt to crank the engine and power it when the engine is hot. Once it's cooled for a period it doesn't require the same power to crank the engine, so there's grunt left to run the engine as well crank it.
