Customer Question
Hi ive had this problem...
Hi ive had this problem for a few months now. I have a 2006 hyundai santa fe elite. Its a 2.7ltr petrol engine.
Occasionally when I start the car the car starts fine but chokes straight after it cranks. So then I start it up again and have to hold my foot on the acceleration to stop it from stalling for a minute then it comes good?

Unlike the older engines these do not have a cold start injector so the ECU takes a reading of the coolant temperature so it can enrichment the fuel by holding the injectors open longer during warm up. So if that sensor is not giving the ECU the proper signal it acts like a choke on an older car until it warms up. You can check at the sensor for voltage and if there is voltage I would replace that sensor.
