Hyundai Accent Viva stalls in very hot weather. Starts again after 1 hour cooling down. Runs for 20 minutes and stalls again.

First thing you need to do is have it scanned for codes. Post the exact code numbers not code descriptions.

If keeping the gas pedal slightly depressed works and you do not have any troble codes, the idle control system is not working correctly. Have the throttle body and IAC cleaned. This would usually cure excessive low idling which would result in stalling.

They say it takes an hour before it will restart so doesnt sound like a iac. It would atleast restart sounds like something is getting hot failing and causing it to die while driving.

I was thinking more likely a crank shaft position sensor or something along those lines.
