Hi, wondering if anyone is familiar with this problem: When my Elantra's temp gage is about halfway up to its normal operating temperature, acceleration suddenly drops and bogs down. I floor it and the car barely goes. I have to pull over and restart the car, and then it runs fine after that. I read on the interwebs that in some cars a bad "air charge temperature sensor" can be to blame, but I can't find this part for my Elantra so I'm assuming it doesn't have one. Any ideas what else I can check? I've put a code reader on it and the only thing that comes up is the spark advance drops from around 25 to around 12 when it's acting up. Manual tranny in case that matters. thanks in advance for any tips. Dan in WI
