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

i changed fuel pump and still does same thing

you have to keep pulling the gas nozzle back every little bit to get the gas into the tank.

brake lights will not go out even when i turn it off and remove the key

I have had to boost my cars a couple of times because I didn't realise I had left my lights on

TOOK HARMONIC BALANCER OFF, BUT CRANKSHAFT TIMING GEAR CAME OFF WITH IT. NOT SURE WHERE TDC IS. CAN I TURN CAMS AND CRANKSHAFT INDIVIDULY TO TIMING MARKS?

I got this car from sombody who did not take care of it I had to put new timing belt kit and crank senser ,all so changed oil senser and put 20/50 oil just to see if I could get the light to go off ,no luck

runs 5 sec.then shut down!

I have a 2007 Sante Fe and have been having a lot of issues. First time I noticed the problem was when I was stoping at a toll booth and my car just shut down. I had to put it in park but then was able to restart it. It also happened one night while sitting at a red light. I flashed my lights and the car shut down. We have replaced the altenator, and gotten a new battery. When I go to start it now it just makes a clicking sound and has to be recharged. Once recharged I can drive it but then the battery seems to drain again regardless of how long I drive it around. Do you think that this is part of the same problem?

I bought my Santa Fe 6/25/12. The hands free was one of the selling points for me. Worked beautifully, except for voice command, for 3 weeks. The bluetooth would not stay on. I took it in to Hyundai this morning. I was told the day before they were having problems with them and would probably need a new radio. The tech worked on it and was still working after 4 hrs. I was told they couldn't guarantee it would keep working due to phones not pairing?? Will a new radio fix this problem or is this common for Hyundai hands free bt radios?

Di I need to remove anything to replace it?

Catalyst ssytem efficiency below threshold.

is this because i have 62000 miles on it. If not what should i be looking for to fix it.

Both my wife and I have these vehicles as does one of my daughters. All three of us experience severe tire wear on the inside tread band of our tires. A dealer alignment didn't seem to solve the problem. Just wondering if anyone else experienced this issue and whether it was resolved or not?
