Most fuels now may or may not have ethanol but it could have up to 10% of ethanol in gas as stated on the pump dispenser. So you should be ok

SOURCE: where can we locate the engine number of hyundai sonata model 99

It is either a 2.4L 4 cylinder, or a 2.5L V6. I double checked with Hyundai and this is all they show to offer for 1999. If you are still unsure, check how many spark wires you have, 4 or 6, and this will tell you how many cylinders you have. Hope this helps.

SOURCE: where is the fuel pump located on a 1989 hyundai

Turn the car on and listen for a sound resembling an electric motor running, which should stop after just a few seconds of having the key turned to acc (pre ignition) If nothing then you will have to drop the gas tank belts and pull the pump from the upper assymbly. I believe it is threaded normally and the fuel hoses can be removed with the ends taped to keep dust and dirt from making its way into your fuel system.
Check O'Reilys or Autozone for the pump

Are you asking where the actual fuel pump is? You will need to remove the back seat and you will find an access panel. Remove it and there is your fuel pump. The actual relay for the fuel pump will be in a box under the hood marked fuel pump. Let me know if this helps.

I park the truck about 3 years ago and now it want start.chjange out all of the old gas its just start for a split second and cut back off

You have a mess on your hands .If you ever want to store any kind of gas engine you need to put fuel stabelazer in the gas and run it for for some time at high speed conduitions as well as low speed before you walk away from it .
The best advice I can give is remove the air cleaner get it all off the top of the engine.Take some HI test gas poor an ounce or 2 the engine see if you can get it running and keep it running for 30 sec if you can get that out of it .It WILL WORK .
Then do a complete tune up all wires cap rotor pcv plugs check belts the hoses belt tenisioners radiator antifreeze engine oil transmission oil keep pouring gas down the bearral then start with the carb cleaner and injector cleaner if it runs for any extended time.Your not supposed to do things like this to engines if you expect them to run.

Hyundai excel 1997 wont start

Recheck your work,don't guess or assume anything

Any parts or wires that came off, may not be back where
they need to be

Otherwise you check for crank signal,injector pulse,fuel
pressure,spark,the usual players

Starting problem

Sounds like the check valve in the fuel pump has failed.
You would need to have the fuel pressure checked before and after cranking the engine to verify. The check valve keeps the fuel pressure from draining back into the tank when the engine is off.

My missus put e10 in bmw96 m3 model & then it keeped cutting out power wise,then completely now won"t start at all.

Hi first thing I would do is drain your fuel tank. E10 can be great fuel for later model vehicles designed to run on it, or even occasionally for those that are not. but it is a hard fuel to regulate as the mixture has to be very precise. after draining your fuel tank i would work backwards towards your motor, so this is the order that i would flush and do. -remove fuel pump and clean (checking for a filter in it) -remove fuel filter -flush fuel lines - remove injectors and have cleaned ( will also improve fuel economy and power) -refit injectors -fit NEW fuel filter reasemble.
once you have filled your fuel tank back up with clean fuel (best bet is to use a high octane Premium fuel) turn your ignition on, but do not start car. wait for the fuel pump to prime (as it should be loud as it will be empty), for a couple of minutes then start car. it may take a few attempts to start once cleaned as the fuel system will be completely dry, but dont let that scare you off.
i hope i have helped
