hyundai entourage no rpms?
 
my van has less than 18,000 miles on a 2008 model. I have had her jerk a couple times then just lose acceleration altogether. so i turned it off and waited a minute .. started it up and it worked again but still had the check engine light on. then 2 days later, (tonight) I was running low on fuel and pulled up to the pump she did the familiar jerking then lost rpms and acceleration again. so i restarted and this time that did not resolve it.. it still had no power although it was running. I did switch to a different gas station after the last time and i thought it was better.. but now even after she had almost 1/2 tank in her , she did start again but the check engine came on again!! please help with any theories. also, she was not cold and had run fine on a few errands i had today. I am truly perplexed. we just had her oil changed less than a month ago and this has come out of the blue. thanks for your time on this one.

I see your post is from 2011, so most likely your car has been repaired. :rolleyes:

I also see this thread has had over 4,800 views with no resolution or suggestions to what may be the cause.

Figured I'd post some info that might help those having the same problem.

Most likely cause you described is caused by a bad THROTTLE POSITION SENSOR as is detailed HERE:
