Question about 2003 Hyundai Santa Fe

1 Answer

I have a 2003 Hyundai Santa Fe V6 3.5L with automatic transmission. 48K miles. When I start the car after sitting over night, I hear this whirring/whining noise from the engine compartment. I goes away after the engine runs for a minute or two. no performance issues noted... just the strange noise. Any ideas on what it could be?

    My power steering fluid was about 1/2 inch below the "LOW" level marker. I figured that therem ust be a leak in the system somewhere, so I took it to the dealer. They told me that the noise was made by the power steering pump due to low fluid level. I must say that I noticed no loss of steering ability. Whatever, the repair (probably replace the lines) should be covered by my extended warranty. Thanks for your reply. Most of the time these types of noises are due to belts. Good advise.

Your whining noise might be comming from dry belts in order to pinpoint your problem have a jug of water ready before startup open the bonnet then startup if the noise appears pour water over the belts if noise goes away replace v belts

Where do I find the transmission fluid drain plug and filter to replace on 2003 Hyundai Santa Fe?


Some vehicles had filters and some didn't. If you have a filter it will be inside the transmission pan, and in that case there won't be a drain plug. You just take the pan off and try to get as little on you as possible when all the fluid comes out. MUCH easier if you have a lift.

If you don't have a pan then the drain plug is on the bottom. Manual transmissions don't have a pan, but sometimes the automatics didn't either.

Fluid: Hyundai Manual Transmission fluid if it's a 5 speed, and Hyundai ATF or Mitsubishi Triple Diamond ATF only if it's an automatic. Dexron and generic ATF does not fair well in these transmissions.

Call a dealership parts department with the VIN number and see if there is a filter kit available for your vehicle if it has an automatic transmission.

HI Santa fes are good cars thay just are very touchy when they dont get there fluilds changed. Every 30,000 miles change the coolant and trans fluild. Also the timing belt has to be changed every 60,000 miles or around that. im not saying if you go a mile over bad things are going to happen just keep up on it and it will run forever. I have seeen tham will 200,000 miles on tham and still going strong.
