    I have the same problem with my 2003 Sante Fe, I bought it from the dealer and within a week after purchase it started making a noise. Took it back and they said it was nothing. I have spoken to 2 other people with the same vehicle and they have the same problem. I bought into a lemon. (Never again)

    No, the mass airflow sensor has not been replaced by hyundai and there is no way that thy will do it if I tell them. Also the motor will start pinging only if the weather is over 76 and the hotter the weather the louder the pinging till it seem,s the motor will break apart. Can there be something else besides the airflow sensor, the motor is still under guaranty.

Sorry I got a head of myself without a check engine light it probably isnt a mass air flow the 2.4 liter engine is a very very touchy engine I don't think that there would be anything covered by the waranty as its a 2003 things to check first would be tune up condition including a fuel filter and the most important thing is the timming belt and balaceshaft belt

Why my 99 nissan quest pinging a lot during hot weather


Switch to premium to see if that is a temp fix. Then run a full strength fuel injector cleaner in the gas tank.

Boiling coolant hyundai santa fe


emma, how is the coolant level? Have you had to add any? Check the cooling fan(s) to make sure they are kicking on when the engine temperature rises. If they are not going on, check for a bad cooling fan switch.

Either your valves are knocking. Your IAC (Idle Air Control valve), or your knock sensor. The only thing is that if your knock sensor is bad it would throw a code. Your caddy could be the problem but again it would throw a code
