Unhappy Unhappy Elantra 2012 Limited Not able to pull/ glides slowly when accelerator is even

Unhappy Elantra 2012 Limited Not able to pull/ glides slowly when accelerator is even floored!


Please for the past 5 months i have been having issue with my car, on some days, when you start driving and stop at a red light and decide to move again, the car doesn't accelerate it just glides slowly. Even if you floor the accelerator it would just glide.

If you put the ignition and start again it comes and then drives normally for a couple of hours/minutes and then starts all over again. Sometimes it can happen 1 week sometimes several times in a day on a 60km drive to town. Sometimes I can go for a whole 3 weeks or more without the problem coming up

I took to it to the Hyundai Service centre in my country and the diagnosed and changed the throttle (because they said the error code given was throttle related.

After changing the throttle it worked fine for a week and it started again and they said it could be the ECU, they changed the ECU and we went for a 45-minute drive without the problem re-ccuring. after parking the car for 10 minutes and starting it the problem came back. and they diagnosed and said it is the Accelerator position sensor, that was changed today and the problem exists.!!

Please has anybody experienced such a problem. They car has been with the Hyundai Service Centre for over 3 weeks now and I honestly think they are lost as to what the problem is!

I am so confused as to what the problem is!! I don't know what to do now...
