first time replacing want to know what problems I might run into during this process
The hood opening cable broke in my 2009 Hyundai Santa Fe, how do i get it open?
Thanks very kindly!
These indicator lights come on but don't always stay on. I just bought from dealer and can't show that the lights come on. It's a 2009 hyundai santa fe awd 4Dr 3.3l, but I don't think it has been driven since 2012. Stock #T8558A engine au62 type crw5j161e sequential #70434. Does something need to be reset or do I have a problem. Alberta Canada
On the right side of the car front or back. I changed the fuse but no help
So I got an oil change yesterday and the battery was checked. It showed to have a good life..
Today my car wouldn't start without a jump, I drove the car for 30 min, no battery symbol was on. But as soon as I got home, I tried turning it back on and the car is dead again. Is this a battery issue?? Or an alternator issue, I know that there is a recall on the alternator and valve gasket , but I need to know if it could be something else
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?
After the car has set all day or when I first take off I feel the vibrating under the gas petal
The emission system has been replaced at a cost of almost $1,000.00.
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.
Today, I heard that my santa fe had many problems. Hyundai dealer shop ask me to replace radiator, fuel senders, and both front struts. It costs $2,000 so I would like to fix them as possible as I can. Which one can I fix it by myself?
Please give me some advise
