My 1999 Hyundai Elantra gl sedan has been experiencing intermittent (but with increasing frequency) low/"idle" speed engine stalling. This presents a dangerous situation when the car stalls at a stoplight or when slowing to turn in a residential neighborhood. Most stalls are occurring at less than 25mph. I have also experienced intermittent "check engine light" episodes during these occurrences. I have taken the car to my mechanic for diagnosis/repair...the computer history show maf sensor but no failure. Additionally, the 'check engine light" does not remain "on". I took the car to the local Hyundai dealership after reading recall/service bulletins related to the maf sensor wiring. They also performed the computer diagnostic that indicated maf sensor issues in the computer history. They also informed me that my vehicle is not one of the Hyundai Elantra/sonata VIN codes. I would appreciate some information from you regarding the resolution to this problem. The Hyundai recall/campaign id is 039 and the NHTSA/odf campaign is 00V259001.

Compaign id 00V259001 is for low speed stalling on 1999 Hyundai Elantra models with certain VIN numbers and relates to the wiring with the mass air flow censor. I have a 1999 Hyundai Elantra that is having the exact same problem but does not fit within the VIN range so they are not covering it. I feel this campaign should be expanded further to cover all of these models with the same problem.
