What kind of service person can't fix a problem? What a retard. Ask for a manager. Anything can be fixed. Jeez, what a lame excuse. I don't buy it for a minute!

thanks for your reply but true they took the injection system off and could not find a fix then they got another brand new elantra and it has the same problem. they said all they can do is wait for a visit from hyundai enginers and see what they say.

Could you explain the problem in detail. What do you mean the revs don't come down quick enough.

Under what conditions does this happen?

I bet they are going to be recalled.

Hmmm well that is not a lame excuse that they can not fix it because its probley controlled by the computer. There is also a computer controlled function like if you are on a hill and start roling at about 5 mph the engine will automatically pick up to 1,000 revs on the 2001 elantra, (i have the 5 speed). I also notice that the revs dont fall off. This could be something to do with the double over head cam configeration too. I had a grand prix that had 4 over head cams and it was the same way quick throtle response but took about 5 sec for it to settle back down.

Well, we know they've added more balancers to the crank for the 2001 Elantra, which could very well give it more momentum to keep spinning after you've taken your foot off the gas.

It could also be caused by a weighty flywheel.

BUDDER....That must be a new feature for 2001. Mine don't do that. It doesn't pick up another thousand revs. All I know is that it is unacceptable for a service person to acknowledge a problem, but say they can't or dont know how to fix the problem. I'd tell them to get back in there and look harder. If they say "I couldn't find anything wrong", that is buyable because some problems are intermittent and occur whenever and as the old saying goes...It never happens with the mechanic. But if there is a CEL problem, all you have to do is plug in the computer and it tells you what is wrong. Not that hard. For the love of God! <img src=icon_smile_approve.gif border=0 align=middle>

My Jeep has been having a stuttering problem for quite some time now. However, it is intermittent and occurs only once 1-2 weeks. Mechanics can't figure it out because there is no engine light. I had the fuel line cleaned. Everything checked. I even replaced the fuel filter 3x until a mechanic told me to go with FRAM from personal experience. I fixed it and it hasn't stuttered since. So I wasted all that money trying to diagnose the problem <img src=icon_smile_evil.gif border=0 align=middle>

I'm almost positive it's due to the counterweights I mentioned in the above post.

We'll have to see if the 2002 Tibs which also have the G4GD motor (MAP based Beta) have the same revving problem.

The thing with the computer is that the computer chip set is programed in ROM (read only memory) and is not programable or reporgramable from outside sources. so the mechanic might reconize it as a problem only because its not normally found on cars. but he can't fix/ reprogram the computer. nor will the computer think that anything is wrong cuss it just does what its programed to do.
