Rough idle at lights and starting to sputter on

Customer Question
Rough idle at lights...

Rough idle at lights and starting to sputter on acceleration, no check engine lights or other warning lights

Mechanic's Assistant: Does the light stay on, or does it blink?

No I haven’t had any warning lights at all

Mechanic's Assistant: What is the model/year of your Hyundai?

3 door automatic Hyundai Getz GL 2005 model

Mechanic's Assistant: Are you fixing your GL yourself? What have you tried so far?

We know icu sensor needs fixing and going to check filters, spark plugs & injectors next, no obvious signs when investigating so far

Mechanic's Assistant: Anything else you want the mechanic to know before I connect you?

That’s all I can think of for now thanks

My name is ***** ***** I am a professional here at Just Answer. I noticed that your question had not received a response and thought I would see if you still need help with this.I apologize for the delay and I hope I can still assist you with this here.

I would check the engine air filter and fuel filter for any issues.If any issues are found with engine or air filters this will need to be repaired.I would also have the injectors tested for any issues with an injector or more than one injector at fault needing cleaned or replaced.If these are all found to be o.k. let me know.

If more help is needed, use the reply tab to continue our conversation. If no further assistance is needed, kindly rate my service, your 5-star rating is appreciated ( should be a link to click on here or above).You can rate at any time and we can continue to work on your question as this will not close out your question.I work on delivering the best answer and help here but in some cases, it can be difficult to do without seeing the vehicle.

Thanks Pete
