Question about Hyundai Santa Fe

1 Answer

My 2003 Hyundai Santa Fe has a check engine light that comes on occasionally. It sometimes comes on for a while then goes off. It stays on sometimes until the engine is shut down and restarted later. What could be the problem?

    we need a trouble code to attempt any diagnosis. go to a autozone or some like and they will scan the car for no charge.

Is this a problem with my Santa Fe's computer?


as for the check engine light sometimes the tightness of your gas cap can make that light come on and stay on, try tightening it or loosening it just a little bit. have no clue on the rest of the issues or the possibility of it all being linked but i know the cap cap has been the culprit for check engine light issues i've had when mechanic checked and said nothing wrong!

2003 Hyundai Santa Fe V6-2.7L. Engine has rough idle which is more pronounced when in gear and less when transmission is put in neutral. Once engine is up to speed 25 or higher engine seems to smooth out...


There are several possible causes for the drivability issue you describe. I'd be guessing at this point with the limited information here. Best advice, take it to an authorized Hyundai Service Department & have it properly diagnosed. This way you'll find out exactly what the problem is and what it will take to fix it.

Engine check light on all the time Santa Fe 2003 manual


The vehicle will run fine for a while until that cat goes out all the way, the only thing that might get you away cheaper than $1,000 is a wrecking yard cat, but then you still take risks. If the cat is bad its bad nothing to do but replace it.
