Question about 2003 Hyundai Santa Fe

1 Answer

Check engine light/stalled

I recently purchased a 2003 AWD Sant Fe with about 70000 miles on it. It runs great. It is smooth and has no odd noises, doesnt run loud or anything. A few days ago while I was driving on the freeway my check engine light came on, but then didnt come on again the next day. I took it in to get an oil change and check the filters and all that and asked them to check the light for me. They said it didnt read anything, but that Hyundai recommends having the differentials replaced at about 75000 or 80000 miles. When I was driving it later that night it suddenly just stopped running. All lights were on and functioning, no noises, no other indicators. I coasted to the side of the road, turned the car off, waited for a minute and it restarted right away as it nothing had happened. It has not happened since, but the check engine light has come back on, and then off again. Any advice or suggestions?

You need to get the code checked first . If it is on when the engine is running . it does come on for a bulb check when first started then goes out . any parts store can check the code for free recommend auto zone

I have the same issue with my 2003 Sante Fe. After I fill up, (whether it's 1/2 a tank or 1/4), my car will stall unless I pump the gas for about 60 sec. My Sante Fe has around 104,000 miles- it also only gets 13 miles to the gallon. I also had an issue with the check engine light. I had 4 different garages check it and all 4 told me they didn't know why it was on (has beem on since 2005). I recently replaced the battery and it went off. Ever since I've had the problem filling up.

Cleaning the valve doesn't always work many times you need to replace it. but first check for codes .... go to Auto Zone have them free scan it and give you a print out of what may be wrong at least you will have a place to start the hunt properly.

2003 santa fe A/C compressor replaced, engine surging & dying


I am not sure where the compressor is on the santa fe but it sounds like something was not hooked back up properly or something like a vacuum line was damaged during job. If a shop did it I would ask the to please just look at it and see if anything is out of place. If you did it I would retrace steps. Is the check engine light on ? How is it running different ?
