2004 Hyundai Santa Fe ProblemsEngine Performance Problems Due to Crankshaft Position Sensor Failure
The crankshaft position sensor may fail, causing engine stalling or a failure to start. Replacement or the failed sensor will commonly correct this problem.
Prior to replacing the automatic transmission fluid (to improve shift quality), make sure that the transmission fluid level is correct. Also, make sure the computer that controls the transmission has the most up-to-date adaptive programming information. When servicing these transmissions be sure to use fluid approved by Hyundai.
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 RecallsFront Coil Springs May Break Due To Corrosion
The front coil springs may corrode and break, which can result in front tire damage and loss of vehicle control. This is most likely in areas where road salt is used. Dealers will inspect and replace affected coil springs as necessary free of charge to resolve the concern.
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.
