No sounds of air sucking. All vacuum hoses are connected and all sensor connectors are tight. Spark plug wires are firmly seated at both ends

Have you checked for any recent codes ? are you in a shop doing this or at home? What we need to do is determine if it's fuel or electrical.

Home. I got a code but don't recall the number. It was MAF sensor-Low Voltage. I swapped the MAF sensor with a known good one off of my other 2.7L Sonata. There was no change in the symptoms
Hyundai Mechanic: Peter Bagley, Auto Service Technician replied 1 year ago

Ok like I said we have to determine if its fuel or electrical Can you put a fuel pressure gauge on it to see if the pressure drops? Can you get a can of quick start and see if you can make it run any longer with a couple shots into the intake. Also check to see if you by accident didn't disturb any cam sensors or their connections.

Customer reply replied 1 year ago
I'll try those things and get back with you tomorrow afternoon. I'll have to borrow the scan tool from work and pick up a loaner fuel pressure gauge set from the parts store. I'll check the cam sensors and try some starting fluid.
Hyundai Mechanic: Peter Bagley, Auto Service Technician replied 1 year ago

This would be good that would narrow things down.
