Change fuel filter, could be plugged with dirt. Check fuel pressure on fuel line, could be the pump.

Well it wasnt the pump or filter, now its not wanting to accelerate when hitting the gas or not wanting to start at all sometimes. It will run fine for a little bit than starts stalling out again everytime i let go of the gas.

try taking off the gas cap, could be the cap is shot and causing a vacuum in the tank. You might be on the right track about theentire fuel delivery system. If you want to google the car and see if any one has had a problem simular

Oh my gosh! I have a 2018 Hyundai Sonata L - only 7 months old, 2,150 miles, which is doing the same thing! Hyundai service told me to take it off Eco Mode and put it in Comfort Mode and it's even worse ! It is dangerous to drive and I'm taking it in next week. If they can't fix it, I'm cutting my losses and trading it in for another Toyota- never had trouble with them. Never had such a Lemon.

The Hyundai dealership apologized for the service person who told me, "Actually that's the way it's supposed to work". They offered to have the manager and service manager ride with me to understand what's going on. I told them thank you, but no, because I never know when it's going to happen. The service manager explained to me that cars no longer work on direct mechanical action - i.e. foot on accelerator pedal goes directly to gas. Now it signals a computer to make it accelerate. Same with the brake. Sometimes when you brake and then accelerate the computer gets "confused" for a few seconds. (Can I have my parents '57 Chevy back with the funky carburetor?)They gave it the first service (2,000 miles) with a free oil change. That was 2 weeks ago and it's been fine. Thanks for asking.

Same is happening to my 2015 Sonata. Took it to Service to get the recall done, and bam, engine light on, and it stalls and won't accelerate. Not sure what to do, scared to drive it, especially on Freeways or with the baby... DId any of you guys find a solution? Can they uninstall the recall software update?
