Asked by Oct 14, 2010 at 02:20 PM about the Hyundai Elantra

Question type: Maintenance & Repair

I have had a problem with my car since I bought it about a year ago. No one can seem to figure out what is wrong with it. When I come to a stop sometimes my car will just shut down, I restart it and its fine.  Ive had the spark plugs replace, new oxygen sensors, and a new radiatior put it. Any ideas would be appreciated! I love my car but I dont know what else to do?????

did u have the alternator checked? simple things like that..? any other sensors checked?


seems to me i've heard about the idle positioning sensor and the egr sensor have something to do with that, it either stalls out or runs high idle. you should have your mechanic look into those if he/she already hasn't
