I have a 2002 Hyundai Santa Fe manual, my car starts fine when it's cold but after driving for about 15 minutes the car will stall at intersections or while driving at low speed in car parks and it is hard to start again. First time the car did this it wouldn't start again until it the engine was cold a few hours later and once it stalls, when turning the engine back on it stalls right away. The other day after testing the car again, same thing happened but I managed to get it started in First and take off quick enough to get the speed up so I could get home.
Any suggestions on what the problem might be?

    • oxygen sensor(s) <- this one is most likely and also probably the lowest-cost repair.

    other possibilities:

    • mass airflow sensor
    • fuel injectors
