2005 Hyundai Tucson Owner Comments

problem #5

Tucson 4WD 6-cyl

  • 168,744 miles


This has happened several times since vehicle was 2 years old; it is running along fine as begins sputtering and seems like it is running out of fuel, but the tank will be nearly full, then it will eventually stop running; I can let it sit for a while and it will restart, and some times is okay for a while, as if everything is okay, then it will happen again; I was charged for a new computer, and it still has not solved the problem. Vehicle has all over the road miles, still in excellent condition, other than this problem.

  • 83,000 miles
My 2005 Hyundai Tucson (2.7L V-6 4WD) has for the last 1.5 years has been: 1.stalling out 2. running very rough with no power (especially when raining or after several days of rain) 3. cranks over but doesn't start 4. engine quits running on highway (leaving us stranded on route I-80). All intermittently! I have had the car in a repair shop where they replaced the ignition coil pack assembly (6/2011). Then it failed again but not long enough to get something diagnosed, so I drove it just knowing someday it was going to happen again. Finally it failed again (1/1/2012) this time long enough for me to get the code/S from the ECM. It had a hard crankshaft position sensor failure. Then it ran fine. I replaced the crankshaft position sensor and upon removal and inspection the sensors three wires were bare. The outer insulation covering all three wires was not only gone but the individual wire insulation was also missing (about 3" of bare copper wire). A quick look of some websites turned up photos of four other crankshaft position sensors that looked the same (missing insulation/ wires shorting) all coming from Hyundai Tucson's. in my opinion this is a very very dangerous situation. Looking at other ntsb complaints for 05, 06 Tucson's turns up nearly 60 other stalling engine; running rough; engine cuts off; type complaints.
