My mechanic told me my engine is full of water. My oil dipstick did not show any signs of water being in the engine. How else can it be diagnosed as full of water?

I had my Hyundai towed to the dealership today bc when I started it this morning the engine light was on and it was making a loud knocking sound. I have a warranty on this vehicle up to 125000 miles. It has about 108000 miles on it. When the mechanic called me to tell me what caused it he said that my engine was full of water and it would not be covered in my warranty. There has been massive flooding here the past few days and I feel like he is just saying that bc he's been diagnosing flooded cars all day. I am just afraid of getting ripped off and want to know how a mechanic would know if there was a flooding issue. Yes, I did go through water but nothing even close to my hood being submerged. Thanks so much for any and all advice or suggestions.

I have replace all sensors - cps, cam, and air flow, replaced all hoses, what would cause this. I have had some say it could be the starter or cylinoid - but was also told no - cylinoid would make a click, no clicks, starter it wouldn't turn over, and it does eventually most of the time

Changed rear brakes rotors calipers and lines but still locking up

Car has 155 thousand miles, all highway, maintained, discovered oil has been collecting in the skid plate.

code showing p0335 pd

It drained the battery, and it runs when a charger is put on the SUV. No key in ignition. Brake relay switch was recently replaced (recall), so is it possible they cut or partially cut a wire?

My car failed emission with a code of P0501. Can anyone tell me what this means and about how much it will cost to fix it.

It says there is a speed sensor problem but when I go to stop at a stop light or stop sign, occasionally my car will shut off completely when I go to push the gas pedal. Sometimes it starts rough and I have to pump the gas (while in park) to get it started and continue pumping gas to keep it running. After it's been running for at least 20 seconds, I can put it in drive and it'll be fine. But it randomly dies and starts rough and when it's just sitting, running in park, the engine will run rough and almost die then kick back up. Paid 400$ for a mass air flow sensor (from an auto shop) which is what Hyundai dealership told me was wrong with my car and that did not fix it. Still does the same things it did before. Need help?! Poor commuting college student!!

push the inter button. This only happens when I open the door no interial lights

My 49K santa fe running well, I brought my car to dealer for service Drain coolant, Transmission fluid, steering fluid replace filters. 6000 miles later heard a noise brought to dealer again steering pump needed to be replaced, then when i took the car home 6 days later, I noticed that the car was choking and then the engine light started to blink

We just bought this santa fe with 130K kms. We have noticed a gasoline smell when driving, and it leaves drips sometimes after parked. The drip seems to be coming from the front drivers side, and it's gasoline.

It is a 3.3L V6.

What is damage done to the engine.
Has this motor enough space under valves?
Just peplacing belt probably not working ?
Advice ? What should be replaced ?


When driver side door won't open from outside or from inside but all other door locks work and the safety lever on this door will not come all the way back. The usual culprit is a small helical spring on the latching mechanism. In my case the tip had broken off, with the spring broken the latching device was being held in the lock position. The fix is simple just reform one loop of the spring and reconnect it to the sliding lever on the door latching device. To get to the latching device is rather troublesome especially if the door in locked. The door panel can be removed with the door locked but with some difficulty. First remove driver seat from vehicle, remove seat belt floor bolt, remove trim covering seat belt. Now remove bolt in inside handle assembly and remove bezel, remove screw from door pull cup and with a short (90 degree)Phillip's number 2 point screw driver remove screws (2) from door panel. Disconnect wire harnesses from door panel. Now release snaps all around panel and try to lift the panel and pull it away from the door frame it will not be easy and some damage may occur to the panel, remember there are still two screws on the other end of the panel that are still fastened to the door. When you get the panel off disconnect the levers from the key assembly and the cables from the inside door handle.
Loosing the three screws on the jab of the door that hold the lock assembly in place, pull lock assembly out of door and make repairs. Make sure to reconnect all electrical connectors that had to be disconnect to remove panel. This a a labor intensive job, good luck...

I have no key-less locks...driver side front door won't open with key or from inside either, all other door locks working fine. I believe the locks are all electric, so jimmy tool won't help. To repair problem I need to remove inside door panel with the door locked...How can I do that?

I drove my Santa Fe all day yesterday and it was fine. Then, at the last place I stopped, it would not start. It would turn over, but not start. I got a jump and it started immediately. On the way home, I did not have a radio, clock, inside lights, or dash lights. It did not lose power at all, but it shifted really hard and the lurched some. When I got home, the power windows rolled up very slowly on three of the four windows, but the drivers side window would not move at all (I tried it first). The car did not start again.

it was repaired in June. My seat is stalled in a supine position. all other controls are working. I disconnected the battery to see if it would reset-no luck.
