Customer Question
My daughter has a...

My daughter has a Hyundai Santa Fe, I believe it's a 2009 with about 140K miles. When she's accelerating and with the air conditioner on (as in freeway driving) the engine just stops. As soon as she pulls over, it will restart. Do you have any ideas?

Mechanic's Assistant: How old is the transmission? Have you checked the fuel filters?

Trans is the same age as the car. She's had it in to more than one car repair shop (including a dealer) and they can't seem to pinpoint the problem.

Mechanic's Assistant: What year is your Santa Fe?

I believe its a 2009

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

No, have just taken it to car repair shops

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

No apparent problems with engine power or shifting, other than this unpredictable engine shut down. This has happened a few times.
