2013 Hyundai Accent, 66,000 miles Engine Help? Sign In

We bought a 2013 Hyundai Accent in March and weird things have been happening since August.

1. We took the car for a servicing at the dealership(oil change, fuel system clean etc;) and the second I left the place and was almost home the check engine light came on.
2. From then on we had problems with the acceleration and rough idling of the vehicle so we changed all 4 spark plugs.
3. After that, the car began having trouble starting-it would try to turn over twice and on the third time it would start. This would happen often.
4. The check engine light code intitially read that it was the knock sensor so we had that replaced.
5. The problems keep getting worse, and now if the car is sitting/running for longer than 20 minutes the oil and battery light(and sometimes the check engine light) will pop on, and the car will just stop running. I took it to autozone and the alternator and battery both passed.
6. We took it to the mechanic and he said no code is showing up so he can’t figure out the problem.

Just looking for any help or ideas. The starting issue, the random shutting down with the lights, the rough idle and hard acceleration are all becoming too overwhelming and I want to know what the problem is!

And what's the reason you haven't brought it back to the dealer that did the work?
