Question about 2003 Hyundai Santa Fe
I had a accident in my car the bumper was ripped off. There is fluid leaking from the front of my car. Could this be a result from the accident? I was told it could be the Auto box fluid cooler radiator. I have the damaged fixed through the insurance. I told them there was a funny noise coming from the front of my car but they ignored me. My car is a hyundai sante 4x4 2003.
Hello and yes this may be a multitude of problems and after I list these problems in the next sentences if you have any more questions just email me back and I will be glad to help you. Yes I would check and see if your radiator is leaking. The squeaking can come from a bad water pump. To check this there is a weep hole on the bottom of the water pump and if the hole is wet with coolant it is your waterpump. Now, what it can be and that is basically anything in the front that can be affected by the accident to be honest. Now, I cannot obviously look the front end over by email but I can give you good direction in finding the area of your problem. The squeak can come from brakes that are overheated and warped and also the rotors may be bad as well. The squeak can come from any amount of suspension components which are in the front of your car and they all should be thouroughly check and lubricated before you consider doing any distance driving with your car. The squeaking can come from a bent piece of metal rubbing on an another end item and can be very easily fixed just by bending the piece of metal back. A good example of this is a heat shield near your exhaust manifold rubbing on a driveshaft for example. The noise can be coming from warped or blued(overheated) wheel bearings and hub bearings. The noise can come from U-Joints that have been damanged during the accident. The noise can also be coming from a bent halfshaft. All of these are major and should be seriously looked at before considering doing any sort of distance travel. I hope this information can help.
