Engine Performance problem
2005 Hyundai Tuscon 6 cyl Four Wheel Drive 86000 miles
Starting Thursday when I brought my son home from preschool it started having problems (didn't take it out Friday but took it out again today). Coming home we go around a turn before we turn off onto our road. The RPMs like got stuck. It stayed at like 3000 for a second and then lunged forward. Then when I pulled into the parking lot, as I was about to park, it died. The RPMs went down below 500 I believe. Then today as I took the kids to an Easter egg hunt it died twice more (both times at stops and I think the RPMs went below 500). And it did the lunge thing once too. It tried to died 2 other times but I hit the gas real quick and got it to stay alive. I heard timing belts could cause this as well as alternator issues. Is this true and what else could it be?
