The seats are leather so when they vibrate and shake the seats rub together and make an annoying sound. I have taken back to the dealership several times and they can't seem to find what is cause this so all they have done is try to fix the sound by putting a conditioner on the leather and putting more insulation in the seats but just the vibration of the seats itself still causes a sound anD when I look in my rear view mirror I can see them shaking really bad. What would cause this happen?

The problem only occurred recently but break lights will not go off. Had to disconnect the battery

Weird issue... did a Google search and nobody seems to have a resolve.

I drove my car through a big flood after a heavy rain and the car engine was covered with water. I used the car for another 2 days after which it has refused to come on again

Randomly looses acceleration, but then picks right back up. Any ideas on where to start? Thanks.

It first blow a couple weeks ago and I replaced it. Yesterday it blew again and I replaced it and it blew again, right away. I have replaced it again today and it hasn't blown yet but I expect it will. What could be causing this problem.?

Driving my car on highway going 85 on cruise control. Cruise shuts off, check engine light is on, engine shuts off, and smoke behind me. Looks like some kind of hose hanging down in front underneath is melted but all my fluids are filled and fine. There is a trail of fluid that came out of my exhaust pipe though.

I need the camshaft torque spec and sequence

The replacement I got lasted 5 months and went out. It also makes a noise when put on recirculate but stops after a few minutes. The blower motor they gave me from the warranty is getting hot very quick, is there a relay switch or something causing this to heat up? There is no noise when it's on vent but the motor still gets hot.

Every morning

Car won't start. Battery changed. Starter changed. It started with a slow start all of a sudden, and I stopped at store, came out and it would not crank. It clicked once, but nothing. All lights worked, but dimmed when trying. Before battery was changed. Now that those things have been changed, it seems like it makes more sound as if it wants to turn over, but won't I've tried the neutral, park cycle crank thing too but it didn't work. I have no idea what to check next. Could it be the alternator, or the ignition switch?

Timing drive belt when to replace

Battery shorted out and car stalled while driving in slow traffic. Nothing worked even brakes only emergency brakes. Local service center said alternator starter were ok battery recharged. Suspect defective electrical wiring

Won't go past 20 mph

My car has a new battery, alternator, and new belts .

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

This is the third time it is leaking.

Has been shifting roughly into drive, all other gears fine. Have to hold shifter so it doesnt pop out of drive into neutral while driving.

2004 Hyundai Santa Fe 2.7

what should i look for repair/ mechanica wise l or stay away from ?

What is happening to the refrigerant if there are no leaks?

Had opposite sides do the same thing. Do not know what shop did, but they got the brakes the last time to work.

left rear and front passenger side

My Son in law (mechanic) but out of state listened to video& sound thought so also.Only makes sound when engine is cold or has sat.

When pulled I get nothing. How do I open it

Hood latch inside just pulls with no release.

light up when it does the transmission works fine reverse always works an so does park the light come on then everything will work

Thought it needed a new light bulb, replaced it but now neither light are working.

What should i check now

It happens when I step on the break slightly and continues until I press hard on the brake. I have had the brakes, calibers, rotor, CV joints checked and they all checked out and no new tires. The car does not wabble or shake just makes this annoying noise.
