    I was having the same problem while mine was under warranty and no help from the dealer. Suggested changing the spark plugs. What I found was a bad spark plug wire. I replaced the wires and haven't had the missing problem since. I do occasionally get the check engine light though. Always codes as an emission problem.

Either the engine idle speed is too slow or the transmission fluid pump is not delivering adequate pressure to the valve body. There may be foreign material blocking one or more passages in the valve body - a flush and fill is supposed to take care of that, but it doesn't always get it if there is too much metal dust in there.

Maybe. did you check the oil, coolant level. automatic transmission fluid? The check engine light will come when your vehicle needs a major service; such as, Now, this an example, OK. Like change coolant, change the automatic transmission fluid, or change differential fluid, or it just needed 3 month, 6 months, 12 months service check up at the dealship. It could tell you even to rotate the tires.

Runs ok when under 3000 revs, but try to accelerate & car just dies


Sounds like you are not getting enough fuel or air. Either your fuel filter is plugged, air cleaner is plugged, (I'd start there--least expensive), or your fuel pump is going bad and when you step on the gas pedal and call for more gas, the fuel pump can't keep up with how much it needs to open the fuel injectors. But start with taking the air cleaner out and cleaning it or replacing it.

99 Hyundai Automatic hesitates to move & check-engine light just


It is most probably your knock sensor that activated the check engine light.
1.By start off, I presume it means to take off in gear (the vehicle moving).
Start the vehicle and let it idle for about a minute, then with the engine still running pull out the dipstick for the transmission and check your oil level. notice the correct oil level is obtained by looking at the dipstick angled down and follow the solid oil mark from the bottom on the stick to where it is only partially covered in oil, this is your mark.
If it is not on the min. mark or the lowest mark at-least, your ATF oil is way to low and that is why it is taking a long time to start off and seems to be jerking.
2. If the above is not your problem, ask your self when last was my vehicle serviced, spark plugs ect.

Take it back to where you had it serviced. They probably simply missed connecting the fuel level sensor. The engine light is probably from a missed emissions hose that goes to the gas tank.

Check engine light stays on at all time seems to cut out fuel when you want to go fast


There is a fuel cutoff set by the cars computer that limits the RPM's of the engine to prevent engine damage. If its cutting out below say 5000 rpm, then theres a problem. The check engine light being on steady means one of the sensors detected something the computer doesnt like. Get the car to a good mechanic to scan the light and retrieve the trouble code. That will tell you what the problem is. Some auto parts stores, like Auto Zone, will scan the light for free.

Transmission problem stuck in sport shift mode


I also have a 2009 Outlander Sportronic transmission with a V6 engine.
Bought it this summer ... transmission appeared fine but seemed to automatically slow down the vehicle using the engines compression whenever I let go of the gas pedal.
Now that the cold weather is upon us here in Canada, whenever I accelarate normally (not like a teenager) the transmission takes quite a bit of time to shift into second... If I rev up the engine (quick take off) it seems to help but the shifting of gears is not as smooth as I would expect it (mildly slips and kicks into second)...

The worst is when come to a complete stop ... then the transmission kicks coming down from the higher gears???

I read somewhere that this is because this transmission is a CVT type and is learning my driving habits in order to adjust itself so the vehicle becomes more fuel efficient... Not sure but if the trany is computer controlled then it must be poorly writen program...
I'm taking the car in to the dealer and will write back on the diagnostic they give me ...
