Question about 2001 Hyundai Santa Fe
I have a 2001 Hyundai Santa Fe AWD... very hard to start... been like this for quite some time... recently replaced plugs & wires, 3 new fuel injectors, replaced 2 filters in tank, replaced new sensor thingy just behind the catalyic converter, and just Friday I put new rotors and disc pads on and a caliper, I gased up and got out on the highway and the thing stalled on me... I tried starting it again after it cooled a bit but still did not stay idling... it would start after some time of whining over, the RPM's would race up and then drop down and then stall... I tried starting it then putting it in gear to move and it would automatically stall out on me... Could it be the fuel pump, but if it's the fuel pump wouldnt it not start at all?? if not what about the crank sensor??? I read somewhere that there is a recall on some for this problem, how do I find out if mine is affected???
If you could get back to me ASAP would be greatly appreciated... as I am stuck in a town I dont know and need to get back home to get back to work...
We had the same problem, tried everything. Problem was the ceramic part of the catalic converter, wich broke in pieces and came into the exhaust, so it could not get rid of the exhaust gas....
