Check for spark if you have fuel.

Best Answer Mark helpful

Possibly the coil pack, my Hyundai Sonata did the same thing. I'm not gonna promise that is what the issue is, but will suggest that it may have something to do with it


checked the coil pack and there is a spark. full spark.

we've now replaced the had valve. the camshaft positioning sensor. battery. spark plugs. starter. and fuel pump.

problem solved yet? replaced fuel pump but did you recheck to confirm you then had fuel pressure? If yes, did you test crankshaft position sensor? Engine temp sensor, if bad, may be causing ECU to think engine is warm and is leaning back fuel to extent car wont do a cold start. you've thrown enough parts at it, time to test!
