Car Problem

Asked by May 26, 2017 at 12:30 PM about the 2010 Hyundai Elantra

Question type: General

This randomly started happening yesterday while driving home from work. I was driving home going about 45 mph, when all of a sudden my car wouldn't accelerate as I press the gas. At first the it wouldn't even rev, but the more I pushed on the pedal it did start to rev up and suddenly my car would jump forward with acceleration for all of 2 seconds
then stop again. The only way i was finally able to to get it to accelerate normally was after flooring it and waiting a few seconds, at that point it kicked in and was fine.
