My wife and I both have automatic trans '02 Elantra GLS's. Mine has
about 36K and hers about 33K miles.
When starting in morning and pulling out from sitting overnight they are
OK. After sitting in the sun all day at work (100deg.+ in Arizona)
there is now a hesitation after initial startup when trying to pull out
of our parking spots.
Start motor - put in (D)drive - push gas pedal ---> here is the
problem: motor does not respond to pushing down the gas pedal in drive
or there is a big delay in response (yes, the brake is off!) Second
push of pedal seems to work OK, or giving a little gas after starting
motor, wait for the RPM to drop back, then placing into drive seems to
work as a work around to the problem.
Our driving is mostly high speed 75 mph Interstate roads.
Any suggestions would be appreciated.
