Question about 2003 Hyundai Tiburon
Nursed the car home now the car wont start.i was told that it could be just spark plugs or ht leads but with the noise i think it could be that the engine is nackered
Hiya from uk from your description of symptoms i would say the timing belt has worne or gone slack due to adjuster bearing failure? this then would result in the pistons hitting valves the rattling you heard? however when you stopped engine then tried restart ? the load applied on starting would have caused belt failure so the engine now spins over with apparent no compression ? as you do not mention milage? if it is high then the cyl/head will have to come off to assess damage ? hope this helps ?best of luck
