Engine Mechanical problem
2004 Hyundai Santa Fe 4 cyl Two Wheel Drive Automatic 126000 miles

The car starts and runs about 10 seconds and then just stops, the crankshaft sensor and timing belt were changed at shop last week, could any of this be part of the problem?

Hi bbq6464, Welcome to 2carpros and TY for the donation

If its the timing belt I don't think it'll run for 10secs-Yes could be the CPS and other ignition components to include fuel problem and ignition switch

Next time it stops-do below immediately to determine if its fuel or spark related issue-

Get a helper disconnect a sparkplug wire or 2 and ground it to the engine at least 3/16 away from ground -have helper crank engine over-do you have a snapping blue spark? If so-you have a fuel related problem, check the fuel pressure to rule out the fuel filter/fuel pump/pressure regulator and listen to the injector/s are they pulsing or hook up a noid light. No snapping blue spark continue to troubleshoot the ignition system-power input to the coil/coil packs, coil's resistances, distributor pick-up coil, ignition control module, cam and crank sensors and computer Note: If it doesn't apply disregard it.
