Noise when first starting may be caused by oil leak down after the engine is stopped. This can be caused by cheap oil filters that don't have an anti-drain back valve. This is bad for you engine.
Change the oil and install a good filter like the FRAM Tough Guard or FRAM Extended Guard or any other brand filter that has a good anti-drain back valve. Cheap filters don't have one.

I would check the oil just to be sure its not low on oil. Some cars will make a little noise when they are cold because the oil is not circulating and thick as when the car gets warmed up. Check the oil and let me know.

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.

My 2001 hyundai sanfe has hiccups also, engine revs while driving..however, it idles fine..any and all solutions would be helpful..


I would say check your plugs and also, it could be your ignition coils starting to go bad. I'm guessing you don't have a check engine light coming on or intermittently blinking?

Good luck!

2003 Hyundai Santa Fe Lost power now won't start


Sounds like the timming belt jumped or broke. A faulty crank sensor could also be at fault.

When asking a question about a problem with your vehicle you should always state your vehicles od reading and engine size, thanks.
