Engine runs rough

  1. Hi,
    I have a 2002 Santa Fe V6. With the AC on at idle the engine runs
    rough. Acts as if it will quit, but never has. My wife worries so
    much that she always turns off the AC when having to stop.

    It was in the shop for its 90K service this past week and they said
    there is nothing wrong. But, there clearly is. Any thoughts or

  2. Does turning off the AC make a difference? If so, it narrows the potential

    Did they run diagnostics on the car? If not you need a new shop. Maybe you
    do anyway if they think rough idle is normal for your car.

  3. Yes, the engine smooths right out when the AC is turned off. The
    shop (dealer where car was purchased) claims they ran diagnostics.

    Didn't find any TSBz on the NHTSA site related to this but you should
    Google this and see if other are having this problem and any potential
