cars stalling when making turn, when slowing down or stopping for a light.  Can't turn on again

1 Answer

90

Had a similar issue w/ my '02 Elantra. Check Engine light had been on for a while, was told it had to do w/ oxygen sensors. Most recently the car would stall, idle at very low RPMs, and did not have much power and would sputter through turns. End result was only a clogged fuel valve, and that seems to have done the trick. A lot of these issues posted regarding older Hyundai Elantras seem to all relate back to the fuel source...good luck...
