Can anyone know the cause for engine not staying on after replacing the input speed sensor on a hyundai sonata? I check everything after replacing the sensor, turn on the engine, but it turns off after running for about 10-20 seconds.
. Welli had the same probl w my 97 cavalier something wrong w the anti theft car would start for a few seconds then cut off due to the car thinking it was stolen somehow and would cut off the gas to the fuel injectors

I have a 2000 sonata that while cold drives great. once the temp gets to its normal operating temp. the car doesn't link to into 3rd. the rest of the gears seam to shift fine. Ive replaced the sensor that hooks to the shifter. with no changes. Also once warm if i go to take off from a stop light it will start out and get to about 15 mph but then it feels like it goes into natural, then after a sec. the car shifts and drives. Does any one have a fix to something like this or possably a idea as to what it might be.

Thanks Brad

My wife has a '00 Sonata and she had this same problem it took me awhile to figure out, but its actually a very easy fix atleast for her car it was. I had to replace the engine coolant temp sensor which runs about 40 or 50 bucks for the sensor. The reason this was causing the car to stall and sputter was because it controls air / fuel mixture based on the engines temp. Once I fixed this never had the problem since.
Where is the engine coolant temp. circuit high input located on a 2001 Hyundai Sonata 6 cylinder located...anyone know?? Tks

I am helping someone work on their 2000 Sonata and it will not change gears. It starts out in high gear and stays there. The problem is I have changed the speed sensors, Input and Output, but that did not fix it. I believe the problem is the Transmission Range Sensor but cannot find the part. I have not called th dealer because they usually want and arm and a leg. Has anyone had this issue and if so what fixed it? Thanks

I'm the same as ELC. My 00' Sonata GLS is normal one time, then "bang" it feels like my power is reduced by 90%. It's dangerous in traffic b/c it will hardly get up to speed. At first I replaced the fuel pump and filter. Went to the auto store. there diagnostics computer said bad MAF sensor, bad crank sensor and there was a torque converter clutch malfunction. It's very baffling. I'm gonna start with the crank sensor.
ps: i calledd my dealer and there is NOT a recall for the MAF sensor on my car.
Anybody got any advice?
I had the same problem and changed the MAS air flow sensore and it was like a brand new car.
