Could be an O2 Sensor! Sometimes cars wont start when they go bad because the engine doesn't think its getting enough air.

Starts but won't stay running


sounds like a bad throttle position sensor or a fuel pressure regulator. also check the idle air control vavle

Car will not stay turned ON when cold


Try this. When you first try to turn your engine on, keep your foot on the gas pedal. The car should turn over but not start. (don't worry, its not supposed to). Take your foot off the gas and turn the ignition on again, but Don't touch the throttle this time. That should set your choke correctly. To summarise: Turn key with foot on Gas. Take foot off Gas, and turn key again.

2003 santa fe that has no acceleration going uphill, no power when pedal is floored, won't shift unless I let my foot off the pedal.


Try unugging the MAF sensor. I don't remember if these will run with it unplugged but it's worth a try. If performance improves then try cleaning it with MAF sensor cleaner. If there is no improvement with the above than I would suspect a plugged cat. I don't remember if this year has one cat or three. If it has one you can drop the exhaust ahead of the cat and drive it. It performance returns its a plugged cat. If it has 3 cats than you will need to remove the upstream O2 sensors and use a back pressure gauge to check exhaust back pssure. You should see less than 3/4 psi at idle Let me know if you have any questions and I'll do my best to answer them. Thank you for using FixYa.com!

Car cranks over fine but won't start unless you press down on the gas pedal, sometimes theres a little backfire and then it fires right up. I was always told to not press the gas pedal on a fuel...


Hi,, your computer should be giving you a code. Do you get a check engine light? Most likely the IAC (idle air control) valve or throtle position sensor. If you can get the codes its giving you can track the problem down better without guesswork.
