hi this may sound odd to you but worth looking into ?? from what you have described may i suggest that your problem may be the fuel tank is becoming vacuumed due to possible tank breather being either blocked or kinked ? this will allow car to start ok and run for some distance whilst the engine is using fuel drawn from the tank via fuel pump ok? then as fuel is used it is not being replaced by atmosphere air in tank ? resulting in vacuum so engine is starved of fuel as pump cannot overcome vac and fuel delivery to engine slows ? but when you stop the vac will slowly clear and all is ok till next time ? try this temporary leave tank filler cap loose an road test if no prob's then check the breather pipe normally clipped alongside filler pipe? under wheel arch ? where all rain/mud etc will come into contact? hope this helps ?

Has similar problem, just got back from the shop and they said it's the neutral safety switch.
Tip on starting even with a broken switch:
1.) Turn the key all the way to start position (you will hear the gas pump humming and all the lights should be on)
2.) press the clutch pedal all the way down (if it starts, then it's fine, if not, proceed to step 3)
3.) release the pedal slowly and just slightly (an inch or so).
-->on the first try, you should hear a slight click and feel the car moving slightly. That's the point where the car tried to start.
4.) Repeat step 3 for several times if the car doesn't start until you are able to grasp that exact point and once you hear that click, hold the clutch at that point and the engine should fire away.
Of course this is just for temporary counter measure, I have to do this because this is my commuter car and I got to find a way to have a reliable and predictable start. Hope this helps.

SOURCE: 2008 hyundai getz wont start
I just worked on a different model Hundai with the same sounding problem. I discovered that the starter was drawing to much voltage and starving the ignition system not allowing it to fire. I ran an amperage draw test and when it was discovered that it was the starter that was the culprit we replaced the starter with a rebuilt starter and it cured the intermitant starting problem. I hope this helps solve your problem.

There are Two Balance Shafts on the 2.4. Did your mechanic also change the balance shaft belt when he changed the timing belt? If he didn't, you'll want to do that. Since you mentioned the old belt was missing teeth, those loose teeth flying around could have damaged the crank position sensor and sensor blade (tone wheel). Also, the front balance shaft (on the side of the engine nearest the radiator), has THREE different positions when the timing mark is lined up - here's the glitch - ONLY ONE of them is the correct one - this is probably where your vibration is.
