Question about 2004 Hyundai Santa Fe
Just bought this vehicle for my daughter who is heading off to university. First day, vehicle motor surges as if cruise was kicking in- (not on), then jerks intermittantly. Took it in for repair- of course ran fine for them. Took it home and it does it continuously. Vehicle jerks and rpms can rev to 4000 when in park!!! No one seems to be able to fix it because no "idiot lights are on" and it behaves for mechanics only. Any ideas???
I have a 2004 hyundai santa fe and i've had the same problems. it's so random when it happens but it seems to be when its a bit warmer outside.. above 70 degrees. it's when i press the gas from a stopped position the car just almost dies. i've pulled out in traffic and thought i was going to get killed. then the car accelerates and the tires squeal and the engine revs super high. the car jerks and its very scary. i bought the car new in 2004 and it started doing it after a few years and it still does it. it's not the gas pedal. it seems like a glitch in the computer or something. it's very dangerous!

Check the accelerator position sensor on the pedal!
