Question about Hyundai Santa Fe
A dragging feeling or sound could be work out brake pads, parking brake shoes or a frozen brake caliper. Once the majority of the brake bad wears away, small metal blades begin built into them begin to make contact with the rotor. This starts sounding like an intermittent squeak to let you know it's time to service the brakes. If ignored, eventually the rivets the hold the pad to the metal back plate begin to grind a groove into the rotor. If deep enough, the rotor will need to be replaced - in addition to the pads. The parking brake can do the same thing. I suggest bringing the car to a brake specialty shop AND your trusted mechanic to be properly diagnosed & evaluated to get an estimate for this repair work.

In 2002 they discontinued the external trans filter. So your vehicle could have the external filter. If you look next to the trans dipstick tube, on top of the trans case you will see the filter or you will see just a spot where the filter use to go before they eliminated it. Yes, the filter does llok like a regular engine oil filter. If the trans does not have the external filter ontop then there is no service to the filter to be done, the only recommendation is to bring vehicle into a shop to have the fluid flushed. By the way, make SURE you use the correct Hyundai SP-III trans fluid (not dexron/mercon). This fluid is specific to the Hyundai and can not be purchased from auto parts stores, only the dealership. Failure to use SP-III will cause premature wear to the internal bands and clutches.

I have had the same problem with my 2000 jimmy. Disconnect the battery for approx 1 minute and then reconnect, this should reset the computer. It has worked for me every time. I was told it was a glitch with GMC.

Ive gone thru this THREE TIMES w/ my '99! Theres a thin, rubber vacuum hose that wears thin, gets dirt/oil/water in it & shorts a relay. The last mechanic replaced the hose w/ steel brakeline & Ive had no problems for 2 yrs.

4. Head gasket!! Check the oil and see if it's way overfull or has a milky color to it. All your symptoms are indicators of a head gasket problem
