Question about 2006 Hyundai Tucson
My 2005 Hyundai Tucson has begun jerking violently when first taking off. Some power loss too. Any ideas why The series of jerks started suddenly, and doesn't seem to get any worse or better. After you accelerate lightly during the take off, the problem is still there, just not as bad. When I reach about 30mph. the problem stops, but power loss is evident. After accelerating up to, and setting the cruise on about 70mph, everything is fine. It is only when taking off from a dead or rolling stop. No engine lights are on. It has 46,000 miles, is a V6 auto with 4wd. I have kept it serviced faithfully, but I would love to avoid the dealer if at all possible. Any Ideas?
I just took my 2006 Tucson in to have this fixed. It was simply that that hose from the air filter was not clamped on tight. That was 2 days ago, no more problem.

Problem solved, My wifes 2005 Tucson started jerking yesterday & after reading some of the solutions on this website I decided to check the air filter bellows, Guess what? It was disconnected from the air filter canister! Once I reconnected the hose the problem immediately was resolved. You would tend to think that Hyundai would have made this hose at least 1/2" longer to prevent this problem from happening at all. The bellows hose seems to be to short!
Thanks for the help!

Change Mass Air flow sensor located on the Air pipe

Well, afer it happening MANY times, I endedup taking the car BACK in for the 3rd time. We talked to the head guy and he ended up taking the whole car apart and putting it back together. It has not done it since and it rides a lot smoother too. They said that sometimes I loose connection can cause the problem. I hope everyone else finds a solution too!!!

i have a early 2008 model tucson and this has been a problem on my vehicle also.
after 7 months of taking the car back to hyundai i think they have now fixed it.
it is a problem with the engine managment programe something to do with the E.G.R OVERLAP
they did the newest update 2 weeks ago and up till now have had no problems.
i might just add that on the later diesel models they have fitted a particulate filter on the exaust and if the vehicle does a lot of miles around town you can get almost the same symptons it needs to be driven for a quite a few miles at a fairly constant speed so the managment system can clean the filter or take it to your garage and they can use their computer to do the same thing with the engine running in their garage.
hope this helps

Check to see that the air intake bellows clamps are tight. Mine had those spring clamps which allowed the bellows between the air filter box and the mass air flow sensor to come loose. When the engine torqued on acceleration the bellows pulled away causing the problem describe.

Hmmm... sounds like a transmission issue, check the level and condition of the fluid. does the engine seem to rev excessively? if the fluid is black or really dark red then it time for a flush, but id the transmission is slipping now some damage might have been done and it might need replacement. i would have to drive it my self to get into anymore detail and to know for sure whats wrong but i would recommend going somewhere today to have it looked at. last thing you need is to get stranded somewhere for no reason. this is covered by Hyundai's power train warranty so take it to a Hyundai dealer and they should look at it for free and let you know what is wrong best of luck, hope its nothing too bad.
