2003 Tiburon GT idles rough and stalls

My 2003 Tiburon with a 2.7L v6 will crank and run, but idles low and will not respond to throttle. In the past while driving, the car would occasionally jump or sputter and then continue, but now while driving there is a complete loss of power, no engine rev at all when the throttle is pushed, any ideas as to what could cause this? Also, check engine light was on last week for a day but went out...

    I would have someone rev the car up, but it doesn't rev. When i press the throttle nothing happens sometimes, and if it does do anything it's short lived, took me like half an hour to get home today and it's a 2 minute drive

First thing that comes to my mind is a vaccum hose. My girlfriends car did this and i fixed it with a piece of 3$ hose. If the light is on you can take it to your local parts store and they can hook it up to a device that gives them the trouble code. They can then tell you what is wrong with it. Do not let them sell you any parts until you confirm that this is the problem. They sold my g/f a 300$ mass air flow sensor when the vaccum hose was all that was needed. Have a friend rev up the engine while you listen for a whistling noise under the hood. If you hear one this could be your problem. You could also have electrical issues such as a bad coil pack.

My 2003 Hyundai tiburon gt v6 (automatic) idles at 500 rpm in drive after warmed up is this normal? It's not throwing codes it just feels like it's shaking a bit


500 is too low for and automatic in drive
normal idle is 850-900 and should not drop below 800 in drive as the ECM should be adjusting for the drive load when in gear
take it in to an accredited service shop that works on your make of vehicle and have the problem diagnosed properly and quote

Do the service below.

Engine stalling and rough run issue at low speeds

This problem is commonly caused by a dirty automatic idle speed control valve and throttle valve. Buy a can of throttle valve cleaner (do not use carburetor spray cleaner!) from NAPA or Carquest (made by CRC chemicals) and spray it into the air intake while the engine is running, use up about 1/2 the can, engine will try to stall hold the speed up, shut it down and let it soak for 30 minutes, restart and blow out the remaining fluid, shut it down and disconnect the negative battery cable for 5 Min's to reset the base idle control. If this doesn't improve the problem you have mechanical problems in the engine like a low cylinder die to worn rings or leaking valve seats.

2003 Tiburon GT, RPM's drop way down and idles rough at stop's?


More maintenance history needed. Oil changed regularly, timing belt replaced at 60 K miles, Engine air filter & intake air hose inspection?
Causes of the problem you describe are many. Recommend you have a technician check your throttle position sensor for any bad spots in the potentiometer... most likely cause when there is NO Check Engine light.

2003 cartier 4.6L 120K miles. At idle, and idle only, the engine will run a little "rough". When I accelerate, no problems at all. Any ideas?


Try this.
Here is the most common cause of surges and stalls at stops and low erratic idle speed and rough idle, it is the idle speed control air-bypass valve and throttle valve (IAC for short), they get full of gunk over the miles and cause idle issues (stalls, low idle) like yours, Get a can of intake cleaner from any local parts store, not carb spray, intake cleaner, it is made by a company called CRC, remove the air intake hose to the engine, hold the idle high so the engine won't stall, then spray the can of cleaner into the intake while keeping the engine running, use at least 1/2 the can, shut down the engine and disconnect the battery for 5 minutes, then restart and complete a number of mixed driving cycles, town, freeway, stop and go etc., after a few days the problem will go away as the system will relearn to the clean intake
