Question about 2004 Hyundai Elantra

1 Answer

The engine sometimes hesitates when accelerating, or even when it is already running at highway speeds. It also hesitates sometimes when going about about 30mph. Spark plugs have been replaced. Check engine light sometimes goes on and off on its own. Fuel additive has been used also, it caused check engine light to go off, it still hesitates.

    I recently had hesitation in my Hyundai Excel and found that the Mass Air Flow Sensor was faulty. Replacing it fixed the problem. The part is on the air intake after the air filter. I took the cable to the mass air flow sensor off and the car ran much better then. You need the sensor for economy reasons.

Sounds like a misfire (bad ignition coils)
You need to get it scanned for trouble codes.

SOURCE: acceleration hesitation

Depends how long since your last tune up and mileage. I would do a normal oil change, oil filter, air filter and plugs. If she still does it, try checking for a vacuum leak. Start the vehicle and spray "lightly" carb cleaner around your vacuum lines. If you have a leak the engine will increase in idle suddenly. Replace the line or part. AS A LAST resort and pretty rare is the distibutor. They usually run about 75.00 to 110.00...hope this helps.

The Hyundai online shop manual and my newly arrived Hyundai shop manual kept pointing to the coil as a possible problem. While preparing to check coil continuity I discovered the pigtail connected to the bottom of one of the coils was loose and the contacts were burned. This is the coil that supplies spark to plugs 1 & 4, the same ones that kept showing up each time the check engine light illuminated. After cleaning the contacts and making sure the pigtail was securely attached to the base of the coil I have had no further problems.

It sounds as if you have a brake or c.v. joint problem. If you haven't checked your brakes check them first (cheapest to repair). Ifbrakes are fine c.v. joints are most likely the problem. When checking brakes if doing yourself check inner and outer pads as well as rotors for scoring. Good Luck.

Hesitation while at same rpm for to long, highway, also during acceleration making popping noise and hesitant.


First thing I would do is to run a Can of Sea Foam through your Engine but it appears that it more than likely that you are dealing with a TPS issue. There are numerous tests that you can perform but cleaning the Injection system will give you a green light to go further and it will benefit you in the long run even if it does not fix the problem.

Additionally, The Fuel Filter MAY be an issue, Replace with a WIX and not a FRAM... You get what you pay for and you will be happy with the Wix

My 2006 Dodge Magnum hesitates sometimes while in


I had the same problem. I replaced the crank shaft position sensor and it solved my problem. It would stall at intersections and while under light acceleration. It also caused loss of cruise control and a stutter when at highway speeds. Replaced crank sensor and its been running solid for 5,000 miles. $125 fix self installed.

Hard start and engine hesitation at highway speed


The PO441 has to do with your HO2S 2 (Oxygen sensor). You need to check to make sure the wire is not off of the sensor and check the grounds to the Oxygen sensor. Could be a bad Oxygen Sensor. The other code has to do with your Evap system Purge solenoid circuit. Has to do with detecting an improper voltage level. Could be a shorted Purge solenoid.
