you must replace the high-voltage ignition wires going from coil pack to a temporary solution you could give it a shower in WD-40 (water displacer will make high voltage happy again)

its a bit testy as I mentioned with the wet weather it tends to "sputter" today however was dry concerned if it is a starter issue or just in need of some new spark plugs

yes new battery, no this isn't the problem...sparkplugs are probably okay, just the high-voltage wires are bad.~

get the original...or better, Hyundai has a reputation for goin' with the cheapest they can lay a claw on, so NAPA would be a suitable choice, maybe Denso? not sure what the Koreans use as OEM~ get better than's only high-voltage wires....this is not rocket science...though easy to mess it up, as high-voltage IS very fussy...and prefers resistance over direct----thus is the tendency over 10,000 volts~
