Question about 2007 Hyundai Santa Fe Limited

1 Answer

Every 10 days to 2 weeks the engine starts to shudder (as if it's going to stall) followed by the flashing check engine light. Stopping the car and reseating the gas cap seems to correct the shuddering. At that time the check engine light glows steadily until after the car has been stopped and restarted several times, at which time the light disappears. The car has been to the dealer several times but the problem has never been corrected. Help! We are considering getting rid of an otherwise great car because we can't trust it to run reliably!

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. Once you do this and let us know what, if any codes are set, then we can go from there. What did the dealership tell you???? NO trouble Codes?

Stalled .Had tune up 2 days ago, then 'Test Only' smog yesterday. After 1.5 years problem-free driving, car shuddered as it turned a corner and stalled. Will not start. Had to tow it home.


The following are the general instructions on the start of diagnosing any electronically controlled engine or transmission problem.

The engine and the automatic transmission (transmission control is only for automatics, engine is still computer controlled no matter the transmission type) in this vehicle are computer controlled and in most cases when a fault occurs a fault code is stored in the memory of the computer control module. There are exceptions to this, such as the Mass Airflow Meter and fuel pressure problems. What must be done is to have all the basic testing done such as a scan of the system for fault codes as well as a check with a live data scanner tool for engine functions that are not within range of normal, a trained technician is required to know what is correct and what isn't, then based on careful diagnostics done from a factory repair manual the correct part is replaced or the wiring repaired or the computer replaced (known as the PCM or ECM,ECU), which is very rarely the problem. Other basic checks must be done as well such as mechanical problems with the engine as well as engine state of tune and mileage on the engine. The transmission can have mechanical issues as well such as no gear engagement at all or a failed pump or other pressure related problems. Also engine mechanical problems can and do cause many drive-ability related problem such as rough idle and other symptoms.

I suggest that you immediately go to an AutoZone and get a free diagnostic scan. That is the only methodology that will pinpoint your problem.

Get the codes and I'll instruct you on how to fix the problem.

'04 Sorento, 110,000 mi., shudders faintly when accelerating from a stop. If I take off slowly, no shudder. I drive with 'Snow' on and less shudder. Also, probably unrelated, about 1 month ago I turn...


could be a falling cam sensor or O2 sensor, O2 sensors don't like being cold as it takes longer to heat up and ecu reads it as a fault. cam sensor these fail more when they get hot. dirty MAF/MAP sensor can also affect the engine.

Rough idle, stalling


You must get the system scanned for fault codes, sounds like the electronic throttle control has a failure.
