U will need to do 2 things here, have the fuel pressure checked, and then have the OBD 2 electronic engine control system tested for fault codes, this engine is run by a computer thatr controls the electronic fuel injection, if a problem occurs in the system a code will be set into the computer memory, both these test require special skills and tools so have a shop run them, give them the symptoms and ask for them to do a fuel pressure test, a fuel pressure leak-down test and a OBD 2 engine control test. There are lots of possibilities that can cayuse these symptoms you have and just guessing is not a good idea, u can spend allot of money fast and still have a car that runs the same, only careful testing by a trained technician will find the problem and fix it with a minimum of expense.

2002 Free Lander stalls out after starting.

It sounds like you have water in your tank and/or bad gas. There are a few Chemicals that can help to remove it.... Dry Heet is one of them, but there are others. I would try to drain as much as you can first, as it seems to be floating on top of the gas. Then add the fuel cleaner. This should help. I would also replace the fuel filter if you cannot clean it out.

Switch gas Stations....
Thank you for contacting Fixya. Does this help? Let us know.

Same starting issue

Here is another thing you can try. Try getting some fuel injection cleaner, your fuel injectors maybe getting clog. You can buy this and put it in when you fill your car with gas. I hope this helps if you haven't tried it yet.

Today after work my '04 Tiburon took like 6 trys to start? any suggestions or potential issues this is commenly related to?

try for temp use, turn key to on position and wait 3sec then try to start. You might have a fuel injector leaking pressure while system is shut off. There is also a fuel pressure regulator that is supposed to work as a check valve. If it leaks down psi then it could cause hard to start. By turning key and waiting the fuel pump primes for intial start.

Sounds like a wheel bearing.You need a mechanic with a lift and some heavy tools. It's not a big deal.
