Question about 2005 Hyundai Tucson

Tucson switches off when stopped

Hi. I have a Hyundai Tucson 2.7 V6 which has done 60000km. Problem is when I stop the vehicle eg. when in traffic, the rev's just drop and the engine swithes off. I have just done the 60000km service. Does'nt happen all the time but often enough.

    Thanks 'ghost4548' ...It was indeed the TPS that was the problem. Replaced the TPS and the Tucson is going fine now.

This sounds like a TPS (Throttle Position Sensor).. If you don't know how to check it.. take it in to a technician who know how. I'm a PLATINUM certified Hyundai Service Technician - I've seen this before and it frequently results in a BAD TPS. Without checking it myself, this is the only solutioin I can offer.

either 5w30 or10w30. some people use 5w30 in the winter its easier for the oil to get around cold and 10w30 in the summer others pick one and use it for the life of their car. as far as brand they are all just about the same. i've heard good about fully synthetic and i've experienced the bad part i've heard about before hand

If the vehicle is stalling when coming to a stop or slowing, look at your throttle position sensor on the throttle body. it is small, almost a box with 2 phillips head screws(not the sensor with hex head bolts, right behind it). If it is grey in color, change it.
