Question about 2001 Hyundai Elantra

1 Answer

Hi. I have a 2001 hyundai elantra. Recently, only when I start up and take off, it skips when I accelerate. It has happened twice in a week (not consecutively) it stops after I drive for about 10 miles, give or take a mile. It feels like it does when it shifts gears but continuously. I'm thinking it could be bad plugs or a clogged fuel filter. I can't afford to take it back an forth to the mechanics so I'm looking for a definite answer. Please help!

Sorry to say that without actually looking/diagnosing your vehicle, there cannot be a DEFINITE answer. You mention 'back and forth to the mechanics'??.... Have you had work/repair service performed on the vehicle? If so, what, specifically, was done (parts replaced, diagnostic trouble codes, road/drive test results? Did the mechanics recommend anything? I need some maintenance/diagnostic history here before I can begin to provide any help/assistance.

The drivability issue you describe could be caused by 'MULTIPLE' conditions, and each one needs to be individually checked/inspected/examined in order to complete a proper & complete diagnosis...there may be more than one cause.

Throttle Position Sensor problem(s)
Injector problem(s)
Fuel Quality problem(s)
Ignition (wires, plugs, coils, electrical connectors/connections)
Clogged catalytic converter (restricted exhaust)
Vacuum leak(s) - (hoses, intake manifold, exhaust manifold, O2 sensor (s)
Electrical Issues (ECM/PCM, Grounds, Faulty Relay(s), wiring harnes(s) & connector connections (pins), etc.

Advice: Have the problem properly diagnosed by a qualified/certified technician. That way you'll find out precisely/exactly where the problem(s) is/are and what it will cost/take to FIX it.

The check engine light usually comes on when there is a faulty sensor. or circuit. Sounds like you may have a faulty throttle position sensor. It would be best to have engine codes read to pinpoint exact problem area. Many part stores do this for free.

2001 Hyundai Santa Fe Compressor

Your car will typically have a higher idle to offset the parasitic drag of the compressor. This is completely normal and nothing to be worried about.

The only thing that bothers me is you mentioned skipping a beat? Does this only happen under acceleration?
