Question about 2001 Hyundai Sonata
The car seems to idle fine but when you accelerate down the road the car seems to cut out when you push hard on the gas the warmer the car gets it doesnt do it as often
What you are describing is the inability of the engine to take a wider throttle setting. I would clean the MAF (Mass Air Flow) sensor first to see if that clears up the issue. The MAF senses the amount of air coming into the air intake, if it is dirty or damaged it will not send the correct signal to the ECM and in turn the proper fuel mixture will not be delivered to the engine cylinders. Cleaning a MAF is fairly simple, but requires some caution. The MAF is rather fragile and should only be cleaned with MAF Sensor Cleaner. Simply follow the instructions on the product. The MAF is normally located on the air intake system directly behind the air filter box.

This sounds like an ignition problem, when spark plugs get old they don't work as well under load, first step, replace them, while you are there, check the wires, or coil packs for shorts, sometimes you can see where they have been shorting out, 2001, I think staill has a distributor, caps and rotors go bad too, inspect carefully, or just replace tham, they can get carbon traces in them causing missing. Hope this helps, and you just need new plugs!
