I have a 2002 santa fe with 144000 miles and while driving it's starting to jerk what could this be?


If it happens throughout accelerating it sounds like a slip in the trans ($1,000). If it jerks & clucks when you let off the gas and reapply the gas it is most likely wear in the rear differential ($500). My 2002 Santa Fe GLS AWD needed both at about 180,000 miles... but that was all it ever needed.

Sold it with 291,912 miles. The new owner has driven it now twice to Charlotte and once to Orlando without an issue. Great car!

What would cause my Hyundai Santa Fe to start hard every time I put fuel in the tank? It doesn't mater if I just put a couple of gallons in or fill it up.


First sign of pump going bad when it is being filled fuel swirls the dirt around in the tank and when you go to start it it is hard. after the pump is running it runs fine til the next time.

Hard to start on 2002 hyundai santa fe? everytime i push gas once then start work and run good can u tell me what is wrong?


yeah, it should start without pushing the gas pedal. Sounds then, like too little gas, or too much air. I would start with a fuel pressure test to see if pressure is up to specs. Also check for any vacuum lines disconnected or bad. Might want to see if engine has any trouble codes. Some parts places (autozone) will check for codes for free. When was last time you changed your fuel filter? Might need replacing. Good luck.

I have a 2002 Hyundai Sante Fe. The check engine light has been on for months.No one can seem to find out why. Every time I fill up the gas tank I have a problem restarting the engine - I have to play with...


My educated guess is that the purge control valve is stuck in the open position. This valve is part of the emissions system on your Santa Fe and normally is closed when the engine is turned off. If the valve sticks open, fuel vapor gets pushed into the engine when filling the fuel tank. This creates a fuel mixture that is too rich on the next start up.
