Hey all.
My 2001 Elantra automatic suddenly decided to idle really rough. Down to around 400rpms or so, and the whole engine was shaking like crazy. I'd hit the throttle and the response was really really slow, and still felt rough.

Sounds like a dead cylinder to me. It was dark and I couldn't see a thing so I have to leave it until tomorrow.

So in the meantime, I'd like to ask (since I'm a total noob to the beta engines) is this a common thing on the Elantra/tib? And if it is, what did you find was the cause of it? fryed plug? failed injector? Bad plug wire? Just wondering if it's a common thing or not.

Or maybe it's something totally different and really major? Any hints? Thanks guys. :)
