    I have a 2004 Hyundai Elantra GT with 28,000 miles. It is a 5 speed.

    About two weeks ago I filled my gas tank up, and within a day the car
    started to buck and shudder when I accelerated, and seemed like it
    wanted to stall when I had the clutch depressed or had it in neutral.

    I figured it may have been bad gas as the problems stopped when the
    gas tank went to about a quarter tank.

    This past weekend I filled the tank again. Within one day, the car
    stalled on me six times within a 5 mile area. It stalled when I
    stopped and was in neutral, and it also stalled when I would depress
    the clutch to shift.

    The car now stalls within three minutes at idle, in neutral.

    Needless to say I can't drive the car.

    The dealer now has the car and they said it stalled for them only once
    at a stop light.

    They told me they have no idea what the problem could be, but they are
    researching it.

    Anyone here have any ideas?

    Note, that the temperature here has been in the 90's for the past few

    It's rare, but I've heard of instances where the charcoal canister fills
    with fuel and then the fuel gets sucked into the intake and effectively
    floods the engine whenever the computer initiates vapor purge. I've seen
    only one car like this, but the fuel literally ran out of the canister
    when we removed it and turned it up.

    My 2002 Elantra GT just started doing this yesterday. Could be bad gas
    as I just filled the tank the day before. It’s also hot here.

    Have you found out what the problem was with yours

    Try removing the gas cap and see if it still stalls.

    I've had the same problem with my car, take it into a hyundai garage
    and get them to check for recalls, mine had a recall on the manifold,
    and also on some petrol pipes and other parts to do with the petrol.
