You need to Do A MANUAL OIL PRESSURE TEST With A Handheld Gage, to First determine that you have Proper Pressure IF YOU DO Try A Valve Adjustment (If Applicable) If Not Then I Would Look into Replacing Lifters

What causes speedometer jumps up and down or not read until after you reach 40 mpg on 04 hyundia santa fe?

Is there anything after market installed in the car? Alarm, radio, mobile video? The speedometer works off of reading voltage, a coded signal. Sometimes if something is installed, it could pinch the wire, be tapped into the wrong wire. If that is the case, take back to get looked at. If that is not the case then you may need to see a mechanic.

02 hyundai santa fe died abruptly driving down the highway and wont restart the engine cranks but won't start it is the v-6 model

Never seen a big engined petrol one of these ,diesel manuals yes plenty abound ,but this year model on the diesel anyway suffers from a crankshaft keyway problem and it wears away allowing the front pulley and timing gear to move allowing the pistons to hit the valves ,now later models had a deeper keyway as a remedy but yours is a 2002 and this could suffer the same problem as the diesels.So check the timing marks first before you change this and that ,V6 petrol ?? try paying 7 dollars a gallon and then say if the diesel isnt the best for economy

Fuel filter light comes on dull and goes out when reving car

i take it that this vehicle is diesel? possible you have water in the filter, caused by condensation.
this can be released by turning the tap at the bottom of the filter, make sure you catch the drained water in a cloth or something simlar.
tighten the tap when diesel runs out and not water, there wont be much

I have a Top End Tappoing I asume its in the Valves.its a 2002 Santa Fe V6 OHC.Its not that noticeable with Hood Shut and From Inside the Vehicle .My Friend has a 2007 Tucson and his has a Light Tapping as...

Not enough oil getting to the hydraulic tappets is highly likely - check the oil, if it is black and dirty change it - change the oil filter too / if its still tapping then the only other things it could be are (in order of expense AND probability) :
Partially clogged fuel pick up pipe (in the oil sump) or Worn Oil Pump.
Hope an oil and filter change does the trick, otherwise you'll need to take off the sump and clean/replace the oil pick up pipe (the pipe is more likely to clog if you do lots of short trips, or drive in a dusty or very hot environment - lots of hill climbing and towing also make the oil burn and stick to the pick up pipe due to the extra heat the engine makes when given hard work) - fingers crossed this fixes the problem and you don;t have a worn oil pump - but even an oil pump isn't mega-expensive.
