Question about 2004 Hyundai Santa Fe

1 Answer

Why does my 2004 Hyundai Santa Fe stalls in cold weather randomly

It NEVER dies in warmer weather. But once it reaches about 20 degrees (like today), the engine shuts down suddenly when I'm driving, and I have to warm up my vehicle for at least 30 minutes so I can drive it again. If I don't warm it up for a LONG period of time, the engine shuts down randomly while I'm driving! I'm tired of this. I even had my crankshaft sensor replaced and this is still happening! When I get my vehicle inspected, no codes are showing up that anything is wrong with it. SO frustrated. Help!!

Vehicle batteries tend to die during cold weather months since more amperage(power) is required to turn over the engine.

SOURCE: Whenever it rains my 2004 Hyundai Santa Fe will

We went through this with ours recently. Hyundai diagnosed it as a bad crank shaft position sensor. We replaced it and we're up and running again. Not sure why the damp weather affected it but it did.

SOURCE: 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.

Might be a clogged or broken Thermostat. Or not enought coolant would do that too. If those don't work? Tryflushing out and bleeding the coolant system.

Engine almost dies


sounds like a fuel problem. have your pump checked or check with your manual if it has a replacement mark. or it could even be as cheap as replacing your fuel filter.

2004 Hyundai Santa Fe problems- Help!


i have a 2004 hyundai santa fe and i've had the same problems. it's so random when it happens but it seems to be when its a bit warmer outside.. above 70 degrees. it's when i press the gas from a stopped position the car just almost dies. i've pulled out in traffic and thought i was going to get killed. then the car accelerates and the tires squeal and the engine revs super high. the car jerks and its very scary. i bought the car new in 2004 and it started doing it after a few years and it still does it. it's not the gas pedal. it seems like a glitch in the computer or something. it's very dangerous!
