Hyundai Getz misfiring

I have a 2006 Hyundai Getz. If I drive her steady she is all fine but if I have the revs below about 2000 or if I try to floor it, its almost like the car isnt firing properly by giving a few light jerks as it accelerates but as soon as I ease off or take it steady again it stops. Ive changed the spark plugs and leads but I have also heard that it could possibly be the air flow sensor. I have taken off and cleaned out all of the induction pipe and air flow pipes to the engine however I didnt come across the air flow sensor. Does anybody know if this can be the problem and if so where its located so I can possibly try cleaning or replacing it Thanks

Have you diagnosed the car for error codes? Upon reading your question I first thought about the HT leads anp plugs. You replaced those. Next step is to suspect dirty (clogged) fuel injectors. Pour a whole bottle of a good fuel injector fluid into almos empty fuel tank. Then add ONLY 2 gallons (8 liters) of fuel. Drive car around like "you stole it". Try to floor it or fully accelarate in 2nd gear as mech as you can, revvin ebgine above 4000 rpms.

If there was any dirt, varnish or clog in any injector, this procedure should fix it in a day or two.

Still do get an error code diagnosis as soon as possible. You may be surprised about what sometimes comes up.

SOURCE: My 1996 Grand Voyager runs

Hello,
You didn't mention any trouble codes. In 1996 all vehicles manufactured in the U.S were required to install the second generation OBD, also refered to as OBD II, to insure that a standard scanner could be used on all vehicles.

It shouldn't be a fuel problem with everything you've had done.

I don't believe it's an emissions problem, because, although emissions can cause a vehicle to stall it usually gives a bad idle and poor acceleration among other things.
Because you don't mention bad idle, loss of power, or no restart we can safely say it's not an emissions problem.

The only thing left that I can think of is an electrical short. I would start with having both ends of the auto shutdown relay checked for a good connection and have the contnuity checked.

Secondly, I would ant to have the wiring in the steering column checked for the same thing, in particular around the ignition. I am very sure your problem is electric.

I'm very sorry your having these issues and I hope this will help you solve them.
If you have other questions please feel free to leave me a comment, and I will get back to you ASAP.
Thanks, Donnie

My Hyundai Getz is pinging at a 3700 revs seems fine otherwise. Anyone know what it could be? Oil is fine and just had the power steering belt changed.


Bad gasoline or running an octane rating that is not meant for your engine will cause pinging. Out of time engines will ping too.

Dont drive a car with the light flashing. A flashing check engine light means that something is really wrong and you can damage the engine if you drive it.
