Get the codes read at the parts store to see if anything is stored. You could guess and start replacing parts but that gets expensive. It could be a coil opening up or a clogged fuel filter. It's an eleven year old vehicle so it could be anything.

2008 Accent shut down while driving but would start again, sometimes easy sometimes hard to start. No CODES from analyser. Problem was CRANKSHAFT POSITION SENSOR. To detect this intermittently dead sensor, the engine had to act up while on analyser...a bit of a waiting game.......Sensor cost in Canada $239.00 plus tax and 1-1/2 hour install at Hyundai for a total of almost $600......
