RPM's Drop to 0 After aggressive braking
So my wife's 2013 Optima SXL has had an issue over the past month where if she has to brake suddenly the RPM gauge drops to 0. It will stay at 0 until the car is stopped, shut off and then turned back on. Also when this happens the car will stutter/loss of power for a few seconds on acceleration, once you are up to speed it seems fine.
No check engine lights on dash and i did not pull any codes with a scanner.
Any ideas what could be causing this?
Sounds like some sensor is failing, potentially a transmission one. Take it in.
