2001 Hyundai Santa Fe QuestionsRefine by vehicle
The thermastat needs to be replaced. Where is it located on my Santa Fe?
It's a 2001 Hyundai Santa Fe. It start up just fine, but when I put it in drive or reverse, it doesn't move at all. When I switch gears, it makes noise also. I would like to know why this is happening. Thank you.
My Santa Fe will hesitate to start when I first try to turn it over then it fires up and will continuously idle roughly when I try to give it gas it wants to die. Will rev up but as soon as I let go of pedal it starts to bog out but will not die unless I continue to give it gas. The weird thing about it is is that if I hold the pedal down in a certain spot it will continue to rev up but then bog out again as soon as I let it go.
I Have 2.4 liter and I've got no power in it while driving it wants to stall it won't idle and the comp. says it needs a mass air flow sensor, camshaft sensor, and something else..anyway replaced both mass air flow and camshaft cleared the comp.but problem still occurring. I also replace both coils and plug wires. It's almost like it's starving for fuel one plug was dark while the others were fine. PLease I need your help!!
So, first time: went to get gas, car wouldn't start, tried three times to get it started, finally pulled out, went to turn off engine to look at it, engine didn't stop for 5 seconds after I had the key out. Thought it was the ignition, tried the key much gentler, worked fine. After this, car runs perfectly. Fuel up #2: tried 5 times before car would start, once fuel dropped below full it was fine starting. Fuel up #3: almost 10 tries before it would start, once started had no problems. Each time, it sounded like the motor was starting, but wouldn't finish turning over. Only has happened when I fill up the tank so far...
My alternator fried and i replaced it. The Alternator is functioning fine but after full throttling the vehicle to get up to speed, the B+ fuse blows, now the loads that are on that particular fuse are the alternator, the O2 sensors and the tcm. Is it possible that when the alternator fried, the batt cable that goes to the Alternator over heated a little?, what should be the ohms of the cable?
Okay. So I bought this Santa Fe off of a hippie that knew nothing about cars yesterday. The oil pressure light is flickering. I hearing a "buzzing" on the passenger side down low in the engine bay. The issue is worse when idling or stopping and going in slow traffic. Oil level is fine. It intermittently is loosing power. Doesn't happen all the time which is weird. Any ideas?
My now, Estranged Husband, has always claimed it was nothing significant and not to worry about it. But I did..and I am still very concerned about this burning smell.... and have learned he was not a Man who spoke the Truth Very often. Is this a fluid leak of some kind?
I don't have my Manuel, but the light on far left stays on. I think it said something somewhere about "gas valves?". Anyway, I took it to Autozone for a free Diagnostics test, and just my luck, the light went OFF on the way there. They tested it anyway, saying they may not be able to determine the problem since the light is not on. They finally said I needed Spark plugs! Well, I'm sure I do, but now the light is on 100% of the time. Should I take it back to Autozone ? I can start from scratch and even go to a different location. Thank you ...
The plastic bottle under my hood that holds windshield wiper fluid has a hole in it somewhere and I cannot clean my windshield when I'm driving. Need estimate of Cost to Replace & Install a new one.
Why do I not have no power still ? Is a relay bad too .? Or something elsa
