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?
dealer said it was battery. Purchased brand new battery and it was a waste of money. Old battery was good. Car would not start the next day. Two other mechanics worked on it to no avail. Once car was jump started it would run for a day. Car is still dead in drive way. This has been going on for six months. Car only has 48,000 miles. Not reliable. Why can't this problem be fixed already? Shouldn't Hyundai mechanics know how to find a fix a problem?
It started doing this a few months ago, If i leave it running the rmps will drop and sometimes it will shut off, it'll take a good five times to get it to start again, after that it runs fine has no problems; second question my heater control the high low etc keeps going bad, I've replaced it 3 times now, does anyone know what can fix these problems?
I realize this is basic but...
Have to pump breaks before it'll stop.
need it A.S.A.P only got a day permit
After the car has set all day or when I first take off I feel the vibrating under the gas petal
The rings got bad and I decided to just change the whole engine but since then my car has been awful. it makes this hard sound when shifting from gear 2 to 3 always,either when cold or hot..and so slow in responding to fire like it's being overloaded or overworked..and then whenever you try to force it to move and it down shift to gear 2 and as it's about to change to gear 3 it makes this serious bang that shakes the whole car and then the gear systems hooks at gear 3,it wouldn't change to 4 nor reduce to 2 until you turn off the engine and turn it back on..my entire engine sitters are broken as a result this continuous bang..why is this so? please I need help, am fed up with dis car..no one even wants to buy it....its an automatic transmission thank you!!!
Drove the vehicle for 7k, but yesterday the transmission sound like gears grinding and high pitch squeaking.
Car can be pushed when it's in park
Is it fixeble, or I need a new transmission?
i know what code means, but need more specific as to what could be wrong. Also could they have knocked something loose. After reading about similar prob the tach still works and car runs fine
when I push on brake pedal
The emission system has been replaced at a cost of almost $1,000.00.
Good morning! Kindly help. Need to know and have an idea what's the next issue of our vehicle.
Sta Fe 2007 Automatic 4x2
When the catalytic converter warms up or becomes hot, the gear releases by itself. Mechanic is having difficulties finding out what the problem is. Please enlighten us.
Rebuilding kit replaced 2weeks ago. It's been shifting well after that. Until another problem came up. Mechanic said it's the catalytic converter this time.
on but havent replaced it yet. Now i go to start the car it turns over and starts and then dies, could this be the reason the check engine light has been on for about a month now
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 ...
In one year it's happened 3 times
I got this Sante Fe 2005 a couple years ago. Considering this is a SUV, that I would never have, I really like it.
Twice now, I have had the passenger seat nylon pull tab get under the seat because the original holder loop is missing. I can feel the bar and just barely touch the pull tab, but it must be caught some place. How do I get that seat 'up' so I can use the cargo space? I managed somehow, the first time, to trigger the release, can't seem to now. Can't believe my fingers got shorter when I lost weight.
