My Tucson hesitates...

#1 Postby debinatore » Sun Dec 10, 2006 9:25 pm

My Tucson seems to hesitate when I tromp on the gas and want to go quick. When I mentioned it to the dealership they said they could reset the computer for free.

He said it was something to do with the computer memorizing my habits...except it had this habit when I got it. I find it annoying that it doesn't respond as quick as I'd like it to.

What does this procedure entail? They said they would do it at my next oil change. Isn't this something I can do myself?

Noope can't do it yourself!

From what I know they hook up your car to a computer and reset it to the factory settings or whatever...not just a simple push of a button:)

Hesitation is annoying. I don't see how this can be due to the computer memorizing driving habits. :roll:

But, wouldn't be the first time I'm wrong. :lol: Good luck.

Mine does the same thing. Only it doesn't do it when I don't have the AC on, so I just assumed it had to do with the AC and didn't worry about it. Plus my dealer sucks and the less I have to deal with them the better.

I have had problem with my Tucson lurching or hesitating while accelerating -

but in my case it was a simple fix that did not require any computers.


My daughter had been upset while my wife was pumping gas - and she failed to tighten the gas cap completely. after removing the gas cap again and placing it back on (making sure it clicked) the problem went away.

yup, it's important to realize to let the gas cap click 3 times (not exactly, but, that's a good number :P) after gassing up! Service department told me a lot of people get their engine light on because they don't tighten it enough.

Motor problems!

Hello Debinatore,

It's a normal procedure that most of the dealers are trying to manipulate the motormanagement of your car. Not every driver has the same style of driving. Some are regular, some are sportive. So the dealer change, upgrade, your motor software to your style of driving.

I had it with my other car and that was a good choice. The car was more sportive and react better/quicker to my right foot.

Good luck with your upgrade :!:

What the dealer is referring to is your ECU which manages the air/fuel flow management. All you have to do to reset it is disconnect your battery for 15-20 minutes (step on brake pedal once elminate any remaining juice in the system), then reconnect. Once the reconnected the ECU is reset. As you begin to drive again the ECU interprets how the engine is running at your current elevation and driving conditions, and begins to tune itself by adjusting air/fuel mixture, etc. to find a common ground between engine efficiency and gas mileage. My Elantra did the same thing, had a hesitation around 3800 rpm. Reset the ECU and it was fixed. Only temporarily though until Hyundai actually released a TSB to reprogram the ECU to eliminate the hesitation alltogether. Maybe they will do the same for the Tucson if it is the same sort of problem.

About hesitate
My Tucson has too some hesitated, in the morning, in 2 or 3 gear step.
So, probably is a torque shock, because 4WD transmission, fill some torque curve instantly and try to discharge in traction control...
I try to verify, with ESP off miss anytime that hesitate.

Hi gang, I had the same problem this moring. Vehicle would hesitate when you started away from stop sign or light. Took it to dealer, mechanic knew what was wrong without looking. It is comon on the V6 for the air intake hose to become disconnected at the clamp. When you start up the engine torque causes the hose to come away causing leak. They replaced the wire hose clamp with a band type clamp and all is well again.
They say this was compounded by the fact that the weather turned cold and the plastic tube contracted causing it to loosen within the clamp. I also had the vehicle Krown rust treated which may have lubricated the connection as well. Check you air inlet hose.

mine did the same thing

#15 Postby forevervike » Fri Feb 02, 2007 8:13 am

then it got worse and i had bad injector seals, smelled gas so bad, had to see a dr., then it got worse yet and i my fuel pump went, had it towed, had my engine light come on 3 times. ThisTucson is a fukin lemon!!! One more time this tuc gets towed, i told them i will give them the keys and they could have it. Fighting Hyundai is useless and even though i have great credt, i will let the bank reposess it. I already talked to the bank about it. Thats how bad I hate this truck.

Watch it close, if it hesitates to the point where it wants to stall, get it looked at.

debinatore,

This happened to me too. Look at the top of your enine at where your airfilter is. I noticed it was not on properly, once I showed the dealer they fixed it.
