Yep, that is normal,I forgot to ask, does the car start right back up or does it have to cool off before it will re fire?

i cant crank it or try w/o that part . was trying junk yards but couldnt find one where we checked before buying good part

Ok, I understand now.This I believe is the cam sensor and our issue here is there isn't any resistance tests for the cam or the crank sensor provided by Hyundai.They have diagnostics for the wiring to the sensors, but their idea of diagnostics for the sensor itself is to install a new one :)HERE is the testing procedure for the Cam sensor.HERE it is for the crank sensor.Hope this helps you out somehow.

what is the most common crank or cam sensor?

Well, the most common is the crank sensor getting hot and losing signal, but since it seemed to happen in pouring rain, I really wonder if it's a coil issue and not a cam or crank sensor problem. I have also seen the wiring to the crank sensor damaged and causing issues on some of these as well.

it was a cold start which shouldnt matter as this car from what hynd. says anyway.. how can i tell so i can tell my guys what would you do if it was your car an limited funds? tell me all u can car guy1, where is the coil i want to kno [for me] an what would i look for if damaged? would i have to put it on lift can damage be seen on out side? what test can we try if wanting to find out if it is coil

The coils are on top of the plugs, this model I believe if memory serves uses 2 coils and 2 plug wires.I would put the cam sensor back into the car and see if it will start now that it is dry. IF it does, then spray the heck out of the coils with water from a spray bottle, if the coils are bad, then they should arc like crazy causing the car to run rough and possibly stall.If there is no start because of no spark with the cam sensor back in the car, take the oil fill cap off and check to make sure the cams are turning when cranking the engine. If the timing is off or the belt broken, then there will be no cam signal and that will kill injector pulse and also take out the spark.So,I think I would start with these and then if possible get a code reader and see if there is a code for either sensor.

P0335 is the crank sensor code and P0340 is the cam sensor code.
