Yesterday we driving along and all of a sudden the rpms dropped and the engine started sputtering/shaking very bad. Like it was starving for fuel. Pull over, the car will not rev up. I open the hood and it just reaks of gas. Didn’t see any leaks. We had it towed to the local dealership. What it the world could this be? Anyone else had this issue? It has 48,000 miles on it.

Very unfortunate. :( Hopefully nothing serious but will be interesting to hear what they find.

Also what engine, 2.4 or turbo?

It's possible the high pressure fuel pump went kaput and that's why it smelled so badly of fuel. It's right up on the top side of the engine under the cover.

Oil is at full capacity. Just talked to the dealer. Two cylinder misfire codes and a turbo underboost code.
Replace 2 plugs (that all Hyundai Motor pay dealer for),, disregard low boost code (engine not run right) and test drive it

It would have to be something more than just two plugs failing at the same time? Could they have been drenched in fuel due to injectors or pump failing?

My 2015 had something similar, lost power and went into limp mode. Took it to the dealer and found out I had a bad coil pack. They moved cylinder 1 coil pack to cylinder 4 and it followed. Car ran great until a month later and I had another coil pack die. So now I have 2 new and 2 original. Dealer had to order them both times, not an inventoried part. Said my car was the "first" they've ever experienced that with the 2015's. They also replaced all 4 spark plugs.

I would consider getting a second opinion...there is about a 95% chance that a faulty coil is your culprit. Why on earth would they replace the turbo before checking to see if one of the coils might be the issue...?? I'd tell em to replace all the coils and not touch anything else....just my 2 cents;)

It's at the dealer and under warranty. Let them replace everything. Factory tells them what they can do.

If they install the converters and there’s still a problem then I’m sure they’ll keep trying.

It's extremely simple to diagnose the coil. Just swap the coil pack from the cylinder that is throwing the code to another cylinder, if the code now appears to be that cylinder it's the coil pack that's bad.

You've obviously never worked for a dealer. They don't roll that way on warranty work.
