    My 2005 Tucson GLS, with the 6 cylinder engine and automatic, is
    stumbling badly when accelerating from a stop. I put my foot on the
    gas and the car lurches while the tach swings up and down between
    1000-2000 rpm. This started after my last fill up, so it may be a bad
    tank of gas. I have an appointment with the dealer for next week.

    Any ideas what I might be looking at?

    By the way, there is no check engine light. The car runs fine once up
    to speed and starts fine.

    Check to see whether the air intake hose has pulled off the air flow
    sensor. There’s a technical service bulletin about this issue.

    If that’s the problem, you can probably just reattach the hose for
    now. The fix is to replace the clamps with some that provide more
    clamping force
