The fuel pump relay will cause a stalling or no start condition. You are likely having mass airflow sensor, fuel pump, or fuel pressure regulator issues.

SOURCE: 2001 hunday gx300 sputter when pushing on gas while driving or pa

QUESTION: "it doest while driving or park" ???? HUH? What you wrote is CONTRADICTIVE. Based on what you wrote, there's no telling what the problem is. It either DOES IT.. or it DOESN'T. Which one is it?
I'm going to assume you meant IT DOES IT while driving OR in Park.. is this correct? If so, then the possible causes are NUMEROUS!.. Let's verify - 2001 XG 300?.. correct? How many miles? 50,000, 60,000, 100,00 mile? Maintenance history? what repairs have been done and what hasn't? Your 2001 XG is equipped with an ETS (Electronic Throttle System) - this means that your accelerator is not DIRECTLY connected to your throttle. Instead, your throttle is controlled by a motor. In essenece, it is 'Drive by wire' throttle (not cable). The sofisticated electronics used to control your throttle plate is very complex... there are two critical sensors (which if they go bad) can affect engine performance.
Now here's an IMPORTANT question -- please read carefully - Does the Check Engine light come ON when this happens? Whenever the "Check Engine" light comes on, there is always a DTC (Diagnostic Trouble Code) stored in the ECM (Engine Control Module). You'll need an OBDII (On-Board-Diagnostics) scanner to retrieve any codes recorded/set in ECM. Once you do this and let us know what, if any codes are set, then we can go from there. If there is NO Check Engine light, perhaps the bulb is burned out (then you'll get a DTC of P0650 - MIL lamp malfunction). In any case, you either need to educate yourself regarding the systems incorporated into your vehicle (Go to http://www.hmaservice.com/ and register (vehicle by VIN). Afterward, you'll have access to technical information (manuals, wiring diagrams, service bulletins, etc) about your vehicle). This way you can possibility fix it yourself. OR Take/tow the vehicle into a Hyundai Service Center (dealership), pay the diagnostic fee. They will tell you EXACTLY what the problem is and what's needed to fix it (parts, labor, tax, time-frame, etc.).

Check the vacuum hoses, but sounds like the IAC or even the o2 sensors. The computer will pick up on the o2 sensors but not the IAC..Go to your local ADVANCE store and they will check on computer for free :)

Engine turning over but wouldnot idle


Well, 2 things come to mind. (1) There could be a dirty gas filter not letting the engine receive enough gas to idle and certainly not enough to rev to any rpm. (2) Depending on the mileage, the catalytic converter could be partially or completely stopped up, not letting the engine expel exhaust gas and subsequently causing unburned fuel to bog the engine down.Lastly, again depending on mileage, the oxygen sensors could be needing to be replaced because of exhaust fouling. Hope this helps.

Rpm does not drop below 1000


No,only on carburated engines it,idles down to the set point,on yours,it's fuel injected,pushing gas pedal won't kick idle down,should go down after a certain amount of time,does it automatically,If you start and drive a 5 mile ride and stop at a stop sign,it should idle at it's set point if there's no engine problems,which may be.5 to .7 on your tac.When you normally first start,it will idle between 1000 to 1200 rpm's,don't push on gas,let idle say 15 seconds,put in drive and go.

You have a mechanical bind. Disconnect the main linkage and work it all by hand. Everything should be free and slopy. Aerosol carb cleaner will help, but only when the engine is not running.

RPM is over 400 rpm higher than it should be with no gas pedal.


Could be several things.. I would suggest replace the neutral safety switch, all O2 sensors and fuel and air filters, PVC valve and if needed plugs n wires..
The issue could also be a bad throttle body.. Should be a good idea to get it hooked up to a diagnostic machine - get the codes and then you will know more of what you are dealing with..

Have a great day !!

hello from what you explained i take it theres no check engine lights on what it sounds like is a basic increase on your idle screw get somone to help push pedal down underhood look to see where gas cable pulls back when gas pedals appled have them release slowly now watch where it stops against a set screw that is your adjustment rpm range should be somewhere between 750-900 rpm depending on vehicle if this doesnt solve most likely tps sensor{ throttle position sensor} goodluck
