Default 06 sportage 2.7L stalls

Our 2006 Sportage 2.7L randomly stalls out at such times as turning slowly on to a side road or while idling at a traffic light, it has < 14k miles.

We have taken the Sportage to the dealer and they replaced the catalytic converter, this did nothing to help the problem. Now, they have not been able to find any computer codes from these incidents, and have not been able to recreate the problem.

We are getting a bit desperate as this is a clear safety issue. Any help much appreciated!

Default

Mine started stalling occasionally too. No codes either.

Switched gas stations and problem was reduced. Tossed in a bottle of FI cleaner and all is good again.

I'm cheap but have learned my lesson 'again'. Stick with top tier gas.

Gumout Regane, Redline SI1, or the Chevron Techron(concentrate) are worth a try.

Default Sportage stalls update

I did have the dealer clean the injectors and they also replaced the throttle position sensor. This seems to have fixed the problem, it has not stalled in the last several days. Thanks for the info.
