    2002 hyundai sonata just stalls stalls while driving,seems to do it more frequent while slowing and tends to lurch a little just before stall. Recently had 70,000 mile service, the problem happened prior to service and the total service did nothing to remedy the problem. No check engine light comes on and the car seems to be getting more difficult to restart after each stall, seems to happen after car warms up. Can anyone help remedy this. Please help! This is intended on being my 16 year old daughters first car but I am afraid for her to drive it.

    My 2000 Hyundai Sonata also stalls when it is very damp and raining. There was a recall on the Oxygen sensor, but I have replace that twice now and the same thing keeps happening. I honestly believe no one has any idea what the true issue is. I called for Hyundai dealers and none of them are aware of this issue. I think that is very strange. Good luck. I am currently have this issue.

    I have a 2005 sonata that is stalling as I run errands and stop and start the car. I had the dealer check it two days ago and they could not find anything wrong with it.

    I have a 2002 Hyundai Sonata and in the middle of driving on the freeway at 60 miles an hour I noticed while pushing the gas it wasn't going faster. I would have never known my car died until I looked at the RPM monitor and it was at "0" and the Speed odometer was slowing going from "60" to "0". The car turns over it just won't start at all. It's at the shop today waiting on the verdict, will respond with results later.

I have a 2000 Sonata V6 with the same issue (low speed intermittent stalling). Finally found a Hyundai dealer that knew about the issue and replaced the CRANK SENSOR. This has dramatically reduced the stalling but it still occurs very rarely. I think the engine idle speed of my car is abnormally low and this may be a secondary issue not completely related.

I have experienced the same problem, taken the car to two Hyundai dealers but they have only bee able to temporarily solve the issue. A few months later the car begins stalling again very intermittently.

Here is the repairs the dealer has performed:
- replaced oxygen sensor
- replaced crank sensor

Other forums suggest replacing some PCV valve sensor has also worked. But the common experience everyone seems to share is that dealers do not know exactly how to fix this problem permenently. There was a recall on this issue and the work was performed on my car but does not solve the problem.

My 2000 Hyundai Elantra is stalling intermintantly as I slow down at stop signs/lights, etc. I have noticed that the speedometer is not working properly.....i.e. when I'm moving at 30 mph the speedo is...

According to the Hyundai service website, "If there is an open or short circuit in the vehicle speed sensor signal circuit, the engine may stall when the vehicle is decelerated to a stop." This sounds like what you're describing, so you should check out the detailed troubleshooting info for the VSS at, available free with registration.

The transmission does have a separate computer (TCM), it's a $700 plus item from the dealer, but if necessary you can get one for much less from a salvage yard. The same goes for the ECM.

Whenever the 'CHECK ENGINE' light comes on, the ECU (Engine Control Unit) sets a Diagnostic Trouble Code (DTC). These codes identify the particular engine management system which caused the light to come on. You'll need to use/find an OBDII (On-Board Diagnostic) Scanner to retrieve any code which have been stored in the ECU computer. Afterward, we might be able to help you DIAGNOSE and perhaps eventually fix the problem.
