Question about 2001 Hyundai Tiburon
My engine will run for 2-15 minutes and then, whether I am driving or idling, the engine cut off with about 1.5 seconds of the engine fading. After the engine dies, if I try to re-crank the engine, it will turn over about 1/3 of the time right away. Sometimes, it will turn over about 5 minutes later. Sometimes I have to wait many hours. The air filter, fuel pump, fuel pump relay, and fuel filter have all been replaced. I have checked all the fuses in the engine and passenger compartment fuse boxes, as well as the two added b/c of the alarm. This car is distributorless.There are no codes displayed by the computer. There is an aftermarket alarm system installed on this car. I am completely lost and haven't found anything like this on the internet. I really appreciate all the help that everyone on this website provides. If only the rest of society functioned this way.
No codes?... Strong suspicion: Crank Position Sensor is going bad. (1.5 seconds fading).

Engine stall or RPM fluctuates
This problem is commonly caused by a dirty automatic idle speed control valve and throttle valve. Buy a can of throttle valve cleaner (do not use carburetor spray cleaner!) from NAPA or Carquest (made by CRC chemicals) and spray it into the air intake while the engine is running, use up about 1/2 the can, engine will try to stall hold the speed up, shut it down and let it soak for 30 minutes, restart and blow out the remaining fluid, shut it down and disconnect the negative battery cable for 5 Min's to reset the base idle control
