Customer Question

we have a 2003 hyundai elantra gt 2.0L, the girlfriend was driving it and says that it started to slowly lose power and then just died. Got it towed home, and so far ive been able to determine that I do hear the fuel pump in the back kicking in, I swapped the ac relay for the fuel pump relay and there was no change. Try to start the car and the motor turns over but doesnt start. Getting ready to tear into it tomorrow and start tracing down whats wrong, but am hoping that you can maybe give me a few ideas on where to start looking so that I dont waste too much time

I am sorry that you have not been helped yet.
Although you hear the fuel pump energizing, it does not mean that it is actually run or produce proper flow, so we cannot rule it out.
Fuel pressure should be checked. It should be at least 49.8psi. If not, replace the pump.
If ok, then you need to check for bright blue spark at each plug.
Next, check that timing belt didnt break, shred, or skip a tooth.
Next, you will need noid lights to check for injector pulse, which if missing, means no signal from the computer.
