2004 Hyundai Santa Fe Problems
The crankshaft position sensor may fail, causing engine stalling or a failure to start. Replacement or the failed sensor will commonly correct this problem.
The timing belt can fail prematurely; if it fails while driving, it can cause catastrophic damage to the engine. Be sure that the timing belt is inspected and replaced according to the manufacturer's recommended schedule.
On the 2.7L V6 and 2.4L 4 Cylinder, a defective exhaust gas recirculation (EGR) switching valve may cause an intermittent rough or unstable idle engine.
2004 Hyundai Santa Fe Questions
While driving, every so often, the car would feel like it had a lag in it. The car just stopped running. The car will turn over but just not engage to start up. The battery is good. What could this be? fyi... the ck engine line has been on since 2007.
When I step on my gas the car vibrates and it is very annoying. I took it back to the place that fixed the other things (above) and they say they do not feel the vibration. What do I do as I know my car and it is not right.
Anyone know what would cause this vibration?
2004 Hyundai Santa Fe Recalls
On vehicles equipped with All Wheel Drive and the 3.5L V6, at speeds between 3 and 12 MPH, vibrations from wet brake pads may cause interference with the electronic signal noise with the ABS sensor. The Antilock Braking System (ABS) may activate, which may extend stopping distance and result in a crash. Dealers will reprogram the ABS ECU. The recall began March 24, 2004. The Hyundai recall number is 065.

My 2004 Hyundai Sante Fe GLS (with V6 3.5L engine). Is still going strong and has 412,000 miles on it! This is the truth. Actually, it doesn't belong to me anymore I gave it to my daughter at 372,000. Its still only costing her the regular maintenance costs battery, rotors, starter, belts, and now tires. I love that car - I wish I'd bought another one. All you have to do is keep it lubed ...
