I'm not sure if you have been following my posts and similar issues with my
wife's 2003 Sonata. I have replaced the plugs, wires, lower O2 sensors and
the coil pack. Still the problem persists. I'm at the point now of replacing
the MAF. $49 from Ebay- OEM quality, 2 year warranty. BTW- Same MAF-
1999-2005 Sonatas, 4 or 6 cyl....
It should be here tomorrow, will keep you posted...

1998 Sonta 126k~2.0L Hello everyone.
It will sputter & stall in and out when restarted from short trips
(2-8+ miles) BUT, not always and will eventually stop sputtering
It FEELS as if:
1- the ignition on all 4 plugs has failed. (coil or transistor
module..??) Or 2-As if I'm losing fuel pressure.
-Plugs and ignition wires were recently replaced
-Last 3 years I've been averaging ~3,000 miles per year. Once or twice
a month, I've been driving her 20-30 miles nonstop at highways
speeds.. .(charge up the battery, remove any moisture, clean out her
I just got a fuel filter, but the darn thing is tight as heck! I
spayed liquid wrench over night, I'll be getting a new flare type 14mm
open end wrench this week and hopefully it will have a much better
Next on my to do list is the fuel tank strainer ..
Money is tight.... Any help is greatly appreciated.
