Number 3 cylinder not firing


Asked by Aug 08, 2016 at 02:49 PM about the 2006 Hyundai Accent GL Hatchback

Question type: Maintenance & Repair

I have a 2006 Hyundai accent that just recently
had to go to shop because timing belt broke. When
I picked car up it would barely stay running.They
told me that I had a bent valve. I barely was able to
get the car home and the next day I started looking
and decided to check the timing belt. I found out
that they didnt do it correctly and had to reset the
belt myself. When I finished I started it up and it
started right up and then after a few minutes it
would start to sputter and die out. I noticed that it
seemed like it had a fouled plug so I changed  
them out and still the number 3 cylinder isnt  firing
at all. I read the codes and it said idle control
sensor then the cam shaft sensor and then the
crankshaft sensor. I replaced them all and then I
replaced the muffler. It still will not stay running
unless I peddle the gas and the check engine light
constantly flashes. The number 3 cylinder is still
not firing.
