    WHAT THE???!!!.. WHAT IS A 'SUV' malfunction on a Santa Fe? I've heard/known of a MIL indicator.. but not a SUV. I did a SEARCH of all Santa Fe's on the HMA service web site - no such animal! Do you mean either an AIR INTAKE TEMP SENSOR... or... A COOLANT TEMPERATURE SENSOR?... or a TRANS OIL TEMP SENSOR?... Tell you what.. you tell me what Diagnostic Trouble Code (DTC) was set in the ECU (Engine Conrol Unit), and I'll let you know what I think... agreed?

When a 'check engine light' (MIL=Malfunction Indicator Lamp) is turned on, there is a DTC (Diagnostic Trouble Code) set/stored in the ECM/PCM (Engine Control Module/Powertrain Control Module). This code identifies which engine management system component/function experienced a malfunction. Once you pull/read this code, you may begin diagnosis.

Just last week i got my oxygen sensor changed because i had my engine light came on and i was told that was the problem. once it was changed the engine light went out, but today friday it came back on...


If you change an O2 Sensor ,and that was the issue,
the light on most vehicles should go out

Your saying you paid to have your vehicle diagnosed
and repaired

My answer or guess, is that they did a poor job at it.

The only time any Malfunction Indicator Lamp (MIL)
or Check Lights come on, you most certainly have issues

What they are, has to be diagnosed, as the codes you get,
do not tell what is wrong or to replace anything

I do not believe that all repair shops know that as of now

You may have a new and different problem from last weeks

Does the Check Engine light come ON when this happens? Whenever the "Check Engine" light comes on, there is always a DTC (Diagnostic Trouble Code) stored in the ECM (Engine Control Module). You'll need an OBDII (On-Board-Diagnostics) scanner to retrieve any codes recorded/set in ECM. Otherwise, guesswork. I have MANY ideas that could send you on a wild goose chase. I strongly suspect EMS (Engine Management System) sensor beginning to malfunction as it warms up. First strong suspicion is the crank position sensor (CKP) - however,usually always sets a DTC (i.e., P0335, P0336). The next suspicion is the Engine Coolant Temperature sensor. The ECM uses this sensor's signal to adjust fuel, timing, engine RPM, etc based on engine temp. If malfunctioning at a particuar point during engine warm up, it could be telling the ECM the temperature is LOWER or HIGHER than it ACTUALLY is, resulting in the ECM to increase fuel (flood it) or give it LESS fuel (starve it). If this malfunction lasts long enough, the ECM will usually set a DTC for that sensor circuit, either a Range/Performance code, or a "LOW Input" or "HIGH Input" code.
