Hi Jay. Now the chances of me crackin' this case are quite slim indeed.Is the bike idling and running smoothly up and down the rev range while standing still ??.If so, this may point to a weight distribution problem. ie, something is causing the bike to loose either spark or fuel when stopping .Just what did the dealer do???. 1 did they remove the carb check float levels blockages. 2 did they check ohm resistances from pick-up coil etc. 3 did they check wiring harness and connections under fuel tank and seat area for a short to ground or a kinky wire . If i was you i'd get a lawyer...Just kidding..HA HA. NO..Seriously i would ask them to exchange a known good cpu.ecu,black box or whatever you want to call that darn thing and put it on your beast to see if that made a difference!!.Maybe they already have...HHHMMM.Can't think of much else..Let me know how it goes as i'm interested how this one pans out...Good luck..JAY W. Regards....Tilleydog

Stalling


.... Robert Grove
johnallen496, when you say it stalls at low speeds and stops, do you mean when slowing down and coming to a stop? does it stall at low speeds while the car is moving with your foot on the pedal just a little like when driving through a parking lot?...

I used the wrong box above, oh well ....

The most common cause of stalling at low speeds, especially idling and decelerating to a stop is carbon buildup. The throttle plates get coated with carbon closing down the opening slightly, this affects the idle speed, causing the engine to stall at idle and coming to a stop.

also carbon builds up in the cylinders and absorbs fuel intended to be burnt, leaning out the mixture and causing rough/low idle and stalling - especially when the engine is cold. Dirty injectors can cause the same symptoms/results

As a maintenance routine It's good to have the throttle plates cleaned and perform a top engine de-carbon treatment, and fuel injection service in more severe cases

Sea Foam makes a spray that works great for minor de-carbon service, just spay it into the throttle plates while it is running, one to two cans will do, add a can of Sea Foam or Techron to the gas tank each time you fill up for the next few tank full's.

If you still have problems sek out a qualified professional

Good luck!

This could be a lot of things. one of the tests that you need to run is shift it into nuetral when you are stopping and see if it still drops RPM and wants to stall. This will eliminate or conclude that it is a transmission issue. If it is still doing this then it could be a vacuum leak or fuel delivery issue.

Hi Kathleen, I'm glad to help!

Kathleen, I can tell you this because I work at a dealer myself and through the years when a problem comes in like yours and we can't find anything wrong its because whatever is causing the issue is not setting a code. There is only a few things that can cause a problem like yours and not set a code. (1) Fuel pumps can cause intermittent problem but will never set a code. After running for a while they will simply stop working but then after sitting a while will cool down and work fine again. (2) Exhaust issues. After the exhaust system has a lot of years and miles on it, the debris inside it can restrict the air flow and in some cases cause the vehicle to die and run poorly after a restart, but after sitting awhile the debris falls back down and the vehicle runs fine again until it happens again. NOTE: I'm not saying that either of these is your problem BUT, you have to start somewhere. Your only other option would be to let it die until the check engine light come on and then you'll know for sure it has set a code. After it sets a code then the dealer should be able to find your problem. The problem is that if its one of the issues I mentioned it will never set a code. Hope this helps and have an awesome day Kathleen.

Stalling


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.
