Question about 2004 Hyundai Santa Fe

1 Answer

Jerking movements when in 1st gear.

Especially when starting to move the vehicle, I find the Santa Fe will **** rapidly if I do not release the clutch fast enough. My previous Santa Fe allowed me to play the clutch back and forth and no rough jerking would happen but now, this 2004 Santa Fe is almost always bucking me when I am going at a slow speed in first gear. Any ideas on why this is happening? I have the seat moved back to the farthest position, I am in a comfortable position overall, plenty of leg space for the accelerator and clutch. But I have to shift to 2nd gear within seconds of getting the car to move or else I am riding a bronco.

Most jerky clutches are traced to weak clutch disc coil springs.They are mounted in the clutch disc to absorb shock,but can get weak and can cause a jerky clutch.
Could also be a broken weak motor mount.

SOURCE: fuel/running related

Have you checked the fuel pump pressure? About 100,000 miles the fuel pump of some Isuzus tend to fail. What I recommend Is to check
the fuel pressure of the pump using a fuel pressure gauge. Another possibility is a clogged fuel filter.Check the fuel filter.

SOURCE: Hard Clutch and 1st and 2nd Gear Shifting is hard

The clutch bearing is supposed to have a groove on the inside where it slides on the shaft That groove is supposed to have a heavy grease applied to it to prevent the bearing running dry on the collar it slides on.Regardless of your driving style, that grease is intended to remain there for the life of the clutch, (generally every clutch I have ever replaced still had some remaining lube there unless the bearing itself failed from a material defect which caused it to overheat and cause that grease to then run out of the retaining groove) I'm not there and can't see the old parts, but in my opinion the first clutch may have failed partially because of your lack of skill in using a stick shift vehicle but the second failure obviously is not your fault if the information you have posted is correct.
Good luck

Scan for codes. Discribe when it jerks! Under a load,going up hill,pulling away from a stop? Does it shift okey? Possibilities--Bad ignition coils, Bad Throttle Position Sensor, Bad EGR Valve,Dirty Throttle Body ETC.

likely is an issue with the motor itself, or could possibly be due to dirt/rust in the way on the track. best to take the forward window panel out and check if it is blocking the way otherwise replace the power window motor.

Gear shifting


Adust clutch cable.Test...start the car in first gear with clutch fully depressed, parking break off. Slowly release the clutch. determine when the vehicle starts to move. If clutch is fully depressed call that 100%, fully released is 0%. The vehicle should be moving at around the 55-45% range.

Santa Fe makes jerking motions


the air conditioning changes your idle speed when the compressor cycles on and in some vehicles will cause the problem you have.
it is the design and there is nothing you can do about it

Low gears wont slide into gear when in traffic jams or hot.


Sounds like you do need a clutch adjustment.Do you have a hydraulic clutch?Check beside the brake master cylinder and look for a SMALLER size master cylinder which may be low on fluid.(PUT ONLY BRAKE FLUID IN TO FILL IT).Hopefully it is just low and the brake fluid fill will restore your clutch adjustment.

Removing Gear box From 2001 Hyundai Santa fe, is The Clutch A push Or Pull Type? and If It is a pull type how can you get the throw out bearing to let go to enable you to remove the G box from the vehicle


It's the 'pull' type. Remove the 14mm nut from the fork shaft release lever. 3996b16.gif
You'll have to manage to remove the release bearing from the pressure plate and return it to its slide shaft at the release fork on the transmission side before you can reinstall the trans (unless of course you're replacing them).
Go to http://www.hmaservice.com/ and register (vehicle by VIN). Afterward, you'll have access to technical information (manuals, wiring diagrams, service bulletins, etc) about your vehicle.

Vuibration in floor trouble shifting hyundai santa fe


First of all, the clutch is unrelated to the timing belt. How many miles on the vehicle (more than 60,000?). If so, when did you have the timing & balance belt replaced (at or before 60,000 miles I hope). Without a proper diagnosis, it's impossible to help you here. Take/tow the vehicle into a Hyundai Service Center (dealership), pay the diagnostic fee. They will tell you EXACTLY what the problem is and what's needed to fix it (parts, labor, tax, time-frame, etc.).

Manual transmission at times has trouble shifting


2003 hyundai, should only have hyundai approved fluids in both the cooling system and transmission. If you take your vehicle to a transmission shop other that hyundai let them now there is a special fluid that goes back into the either radiator or transmission. Regular transmission fluids viscosity is to thick and will make shifting very hard. My Mazda has the same issues Wrong fluids go back into the transmission when I have had work done to it making the shifter hard to shift in cold weather. A Worn clutch can have the same effect.
