Car was running fine until without warning, will not start. Battery good, fuses checked inside & under hood, started good. Hear clicking noises under dash when trying to turn on ignition.
just noticed this morning. 2 days ago I filled up my gas tank and overfilled it accidentally. not sure if that would have anyting to do with it or not. car is running fine, just has this leak?
hard starting after fill up and am going to try the purge valve first

check engine lite came on-still in warranty. dealer said "actuator for butterlies that run thru intake manifold" broke due to "combustion chamber clogged w/carbon" they will warranty replace actuator, but i must pay for "chemical cleaning of combustion chamber" car has 38K miles, 2 yrs old. Never had that issue on my 10 yr old toyota w/150K miles. is the dealer telling me something legit or blowing smoke up ...
wind noise is stong over 40 mph like the door or window is not adjusted properly. Noise go when you remove the right mirror. We road tested 3 other Santa Fe and same problem.The dealer and Hyundai know and had many complains about this problem.
Hyundai have no solution for now.
Car has 143,000 miles. Had to have cv boots replaced, usual things like that. Car stereo works when it feels like it. Very nice when it does. Otherwise it's a great car, good mpgs. Now the read hatch will not open. The latch just scoots up inside and stays there. The window hatch also refuses to work. How do I fix this? I won't take it to the dealer. Just too expensive. The above work was a couple thousand. Future mechanic work will go to our local guy. I think I can probably fix the door if I can just get some clues how to open the back door up from the inside. We take an 86 year old lady out now and then, and need to get a wheelchair in the back. Thank you!
The day before, everything was working fine and I've no indication prior to this incident that anything was wrong with the transmission.
I haven't had any indications before this happened that anything was wrong with the transmission.
I'm not having a problem; it just came on but I'm anxious. Code states 'intake manifold runner performance (bank 1)). Can't find an explanation. Also, when we bought it (a year old) the horn didn't work and the low tire light comes on even when I have it at the correct psi. I checked the fuse and relay for the horn and they seem to be good when swapping out with others of same amps etc. HELP!!!!

What is the Oil Change recommendation for 2002 Hyundai Santa Fe?
every time i hit anything on yhe highway, i get a bump, sound from the front. shocks are very strong, but theres so many bushings, and they look like they.re in good shape. where would you start with repairs. the sound comes from both, or either one or the other depending on which wheel hits a bump. its not a metal to metal sound.
but just a bump, bump, like a bushing is worn out. could it be the motor cradle to body bumpers?
even with temp control on hi (auto climate control)
do the seals get changed
I have a 2 yr old Hyundai Santa Fe. Up to the last 6 mos., I got 26 to 28 mpg (higher for longer trips). Now I am getting 20 to 23. Regular oil changes, air/fuel filter changes per requirements. Is there an additive that will actually work and help improve mpg?
I can drive around town and not get the CEL to turn on. If I do highway driving, the computer will throw a pd1166 and then on my next trip (the engine must be restarted) the CEL will light up with a p1166 and a pd1166. No other codes are popping up. Could this be the MAF, is there a way to test the MAF. The same code was being thrown when the crankshaft seal failed, but it would happen almost immediately.
Any ideas are greatly appreciated. Thanks Wayne
