After idling for more than 5 minutes comma the car backfires and acts like it is going to die

Asked by Oct 27, 2016 at 01:13 PM about the 2013 Hyundai Sonata Hybrid Limited w/Panoramic Sunroof

Question type: Maintenance & Repair

I haven't noticed but if I leave the air conditioner on
while I am waiting for my kids at school the car
almost dies when I go to take off and then
backfires two or three times. I took it to the
dealership to change the oil and filter. It didn't
seem to help.

backfiring means a timing issue. Have the dealership or local garage look the vehicle over. Something isn't right. IS the Check engine light on?
