Question about Hyundai Tiburon
Had a blown timing belt, so changed the valves, machined shopped the motor, the whole works. Car started right away and we shut it off after a minute. Next day my mechanic changed the oil, filter, new spark plugs and cables and thermostat sensor. Car just turned over but didn't start. Thought it was the starter so bought a brand new starter and still nothing. Checked the Cam sensor, the fuel pump and the plugs etc. Everything seems to be working and the plugs are getting electric. The fuel pump is spinning, the starter is working etc. It runs for a second when we put in carb injection cleaner and thats it. So seems the motor wants to go but isn't getting gas or something? Need help, even my mechanic is stuck. Timing belt is set correctly, plugs gapped correctly etc. He is a good mechanic (For Puerto Rico LOL) and yes, we even put gas in it! Any suggestions? Additional Details Also checked fuses and pretty much everything and anything. I assume it has to be a small little problem that drives us crazy looking for it. 3 mins ago Finally, not sure if this makes a difference but the mechanic has the front of the car up on blocks so it is essentially lifting upwards about 30 degrees while trying to start it. Maybe the fuel pump doesnt have enough power to start it on a hill?
