I'm not sure if this has anything to do with your problem.. but in 2002 there was a recall on the 01 & 02 santa fe's w/ the 2.7L engine for improperly manufactured crankshaft position sensors and internal gaps within the cases allowing epoxy to contact the printed circuil board, which resulted in cracking of the printed circuit board capacitor. A damaged capacitor could result in engine stalling.  Recall campaign number 03V030000

Still sounds like a fuel problem. Try a full tank of supreme gas, plus put a can of SEAFOAM into the tank to help clean you injectors. See if this will help clear up your problem. Did you change the plugwires????

SOURCE: Power steering fluid leaking profusly. mec changed

If you add fluid as you go, not letting it run dry, it will be fine, but I'm wondering how much you would need to add for that long a trip. If it runs dry, the pump can seize, but if it's only for a very brief time (say one minute?) it would probably survive. I know of people running a vehicle with a dry ps pump for a rather long time, and the pump was ok, but it's got to take some life out of it. Do you or a friend belong to AAA? If you have the extra coverage (or your friend, relative, etc) you can get it towed to the mechanic for free. Coverage is good if friend is in vehicle with you when problem occurs.

My santa fe start and run 3 sec after stall but if i put it at 1500 rpm it always run. when stallihng its like i put the ignition off no esitation and i crank and run all the time but stall


suspect the fuel filter. if you replaced the fuel filter & still stall, use fuel pressure gauge to check the fuel system. (could be bad fuel pressure regulator or fuel pump.)

Engine won't start but it crank.The diagnostic found injector low pressure. Injector 1,2 is leaking, It is possible that we replace injector's and cam shaft sensor too for hyundai santa-fe CRdi..any h

Hard starting


It can be caused by a bad crankshaft sensor, plugged fuel filter, or clogged tank internal filter, as well as a failing fuel pump. Although the crankshaft sensor may not seem to be related to the fuel group, fuel demand is anticipated by counting the RPM's which is the crankshaft sensors job.
Now "hard to start" issues can be fuel pump pressure problems. But do not forget the "cold start routine" which requires a temperature sensor to set the engine management system for a cold start. It becomes less of a factor when the engine is warm but would not be responsible for low fuel pressure.
A simple test for vacuum leaks is to have the engine running and use a spray bottle of water on vacuum lines, intake gasket seams, EGR pod and the brake booster. A leak will reduce RPM or stall the engine.
For the internal tank filter, sometimes the plastic screen on the fuel pump deteriorates and clogs the pump intake. To test that, blow air into the fuel test port. This will help clear debris inside the tank temporarily, then check fuel pressure without driving the car and stirring the tank up. If pressure improves you know the root cause of your problems.

Where is the in-line fuel filter on a 2002 Hyundai Santa Fe located.


I am not familiar with that model, but it dosen't sound like a fuel filter to me .
If it runs good after you get it started,the filter is probably ok,i don't know where it is located on that model,but it sounds like you have already found the problem (low fuel pressure) check for leaks,make sure the lines are on the right places on tank .Whatever is causing low fuel pressure is probably the solution.
hope this helps!

My 2002 Santa Fe starts real hard lately. I was told the battery was failing, so I replaced it. It started real easy the first time, but after that I have to crank it for 10-15 seconds before it barely...


if the fuel filter was plugged you would have no power but the engine would start ok, chances are you have a defective fuel pump check valve, this causes the fuel to leak back into the tank and when u start it the engine is very lean until the air bleeds out of the lines, any wshop can verify this quickly by doing a pressure leak down test on the fuel pump.

My Hyundai Santa Fe starts sometimes, If I continue to turn the key off and on it evenully starts. I have plenty of power, and the clicking is coming from on top of the motor under the shod under the hood,...


First of all, that 'ticking' noise you mention, if it's what I think it is, it's normal (purge control solenoid valve) being modulated by the ECM to **** the vapors back out of the charcoal canister. The 'Hard Starting' condition you describe could be almost anything from fuel (fuel pressure, fuel pump, injectors), timing, air leaks, vacuum leaks, crank position sensor, etc.). You'll want to connect a fuel pressure gauge to the fuel feed hose/tube at the engine fuel rail (where the injectors are) and monitor the pressure when this hard start condition occurs so you can at least eliminate it as the cause. If you find the pressure is low or 'intermittent' or 'fluctuates' abnormally, you'll want to inspect the wiring/connections between the fuel pump fuse and the fuel pump connector - repair/replace as needed. If the wiring/ connections are good and you have power & ground at the fuel pump, then the problem is probably the fuel pump.
