The Hyundai owner’s manual specifies a wide range of oil viscosities for this vehicle. See page 6-5 at the foregoing link for full details. Overall, you will be OK with 5W-30. Synthetic oil is always preferred. The stalling could be due to a faulty ignition switch, incipient sensor failure (crankshaft position sensor) or momentary interruption in power to the fuel system.
