It's not too complex to test the crankshaft, camshaft and other key engine sensors using a good scan tool and or an oscilloscope, and good volt/ohm meter. Testing all the inputs and then test out puts from the computer. Hyundai as a car manufacturer put a lot of free technical information and workshop manuals on line for Hyundai owners. Check out www.hmaservice.com lots of great information. There is a professional service called Identafix. http://www.identifix.com/info/about_us.htm They only deal with professional repair shops.
