I have a question, I have a 2003 Hyundai Elantra and lately when I stop at a light the car act like it wants to stall but doesn't. Can anyone tell me what it may be. I want to take it in but lately when shop see a women they just tell us anything and then wouldn't fix the real problem of shop owners......taking advantage of women //
Sounds like timing belt issue

It could be a any number of problems. It could be a simple vacuum leak somewhere. Either a line could be clogged/disconnected or the head gasket could have a leak. Even a minor one could cause problems. I would also check the air filter. The filter is located to the right of the engine when you are facing it. There should be 5-6 latches. Just unlock those, remove the air filter, and if it looks dirty than just replace it. Wouldn't hurt. You could even have a clogged fuel filter, but on the Elantra the fuel filter and pump is one assembly which requires more work than just a quick fix. I would ultimately suggest that you go down to Autozone or Napa and get one of the older/possibly more experienced individuals take a look at it. If you decide to take it to a garage by yourself, I would suggest that you bring it to one of the reputable, national places but if at all possible still have someone else go with you. As a man, I even had the "reputable" places pressure me into trying to get the work done on the spot, telling me that I am taking a risk by driving the car. I usually let them run a diagnostic and then take it home and fix it myself. If you find a good and honest mechanic--hang onto them even if it means paying more.
