No
it indicates a head gasket / cracked head problem and the water is being pushed up by a build up of compression gasses
a compression test is in order

I have Elantra Hyundai n have changed radiator fan , thermostate ,water pump, radiator cap at the end i also done the head gasket but still my car is getting hot n coolent boils plzz answer me


Did you get the head reworked? If not then your head is most likely damaged. Heads should always be reworked when an over heating condition exists as the aluminum head easily warps. Otherwise it sounds like you may have other issues. If the head was not torqued down in the correct sequence, head bolts not replaced (should never be reused), cracked head, cracked block....too many possibilities to diagnose over the internet.

How to tell if my heads are cracked on a 2002 hyundai sante fe


Have a cooling system pressure test done. If you have a head problem the car will over heat very quickly I would be checking the radiator for blockage or part blockage. Check the fins on the radiator core and if they crumble easily that will also point to a fault. Check for expanded hose or collapsed bottom hose.

Hi Mark, I've just had the same problem with my 2007 Sante Fe. After replacing water pump, radiator, thermostat, etc, turns out it was the cylinder head gasket. No water in oil, but engine pressurises the water system, blowing water out the overflow. Cheers

I take it this only happens when the vehicle is stopped & idling? If not, check radiator & hoses for blockage (since you've already replaced the thermostat & top hose) - repair/replace as needed. Next, check the coolant temperature sensor's operation (there are two sensors - one for the temp gauge on the instrument panel, the other is used by the ECM (PCM). If that one is malfunctioning (i.e., telling the computer that the engine coolant temperature is less than it actually is, The ECM (PCM) it won't turn on the cooling fans.
Since you didn't specify which engine you have (i.e., 2.4, 2.6 or 3.5), Photo locations of all three are included here.

I can't change the time of the clock on the Hyundai 50645P CD player/AM FM clock. There is no information in the Sante Fe manual. Any advice?


Try this, put the key in the ignition and let it be on the first turn right marked "ACC" or you can turn off the stereo and you will notice that only the Digital Clock screen will show. Turn the Volume/Audio/Sel knob and press on the "DISP" button simultaneously for about 4 seconds then release the "DISP" button. The digital clock will start blinking, and then use the Tune/Seek arrows pointing up and down to change the time. If the hour digit is blinking change the hour and after you have changed it press "DISP" then the minute digit will start to blink change it using the arrows, when you are done press "DISP" again or leave the clock for between 4 to 8 seconds the clock will start working normally.


I hope this works for you.


Good luck!
