Check engine light comes on for 2004 Hyundai Sante Fe. O2 sensor was replaced but still has the problem. Does the EGR manifold tend to get clogged up on the Sante Fe? I fixed a Honda Civic check engine...
First of all, why was the O2 snsr replaced?... Check Engine light? What DTC (diagnostic trouble code) did you find stored in the ECU (Engine Control Unit)? The drivability you seem to be describing can have multiple causes -- faulty sensors, malfunctioning computer, clogged catalytic converter, leaky injectors, vacuum leaks, etc.
Ok... this is gonna take some time. The 04 Santa Fe came with 3 (three) different/possible engines -- the 4 Cylinder 2.4 lit, the 2.7 V6, and the 3.5 V6. Only the 2.4 (4 cyl) and the 3.5 V6 are equipped with EGR. The 2.7 does NOT have EGR. To answer part of your question, the EGR system on the 4 Cyl is known to develop restriction(s) in the EGR port (from the # 4 cylinder exhaust port to the EGR valve at the intake manifold). This port travels through the head (front to rear, i.e., Left to Right when viewing the engine from the transmission end). This port cannot be seen at the # 4 cylinder exhaust port unless you remove the exhaust manifold.
It would be very helpful if you could provide more detailed/specific information regarding the drivability issue & what/which codes were found related to the Check Engine light.
