Hi there have you check the air flow system (pipes for blockages,pipes that may have split etc) sounds if it is air flow problem.

Santa fe sputters from idle


There are a few thing that could cause this to happen, the first thing is that you need to make sure the check engine light is not on, if it is or not still have the computer scanned for any codes, the computer is always watching the operation of the engine and if there is a problem it will store a code and turn check engine light on to warn you of the problem, the code will come out as a set of letters and numbers and tell you were the problem is. it will not tell you whats wrong but just the component that is failing and then with some testing the problem can be found.

the sputtering you speak off could be due to a coil that is bad and causing engine to misfire, or even a vacuum leak or spark plug.
There are many auto part stores that will scan the computer for free and give you the codes, start by having the codes read and then write me back with the codes. Here is an example of a code, let say code po301 cyl 1 misfire , came up as one of the codes.

As you can read it tells you that cylinder # 1 is misfiring, then we would check the coil for that cylinder and the sprak plug first.

make sure to get the complete code, good day.

Reving problem on 2001 santa fe


when you try to rev it up does it sort of rev up and down like a rythm?
If so that is a safety thing to keep people from blowing up there engines. My truck does that too. It sounds like it's not getting gas at hi rpm's. Only floor it when your driving don't try to show off the rev you'll blow it
