Use ONLY Hyundai SPIII fluid - no other substitute is available. Several ways to do this - drain & refill several times: run engine to operating temp and cycle the trans through D & R. drain fluid again, refill and run engine again and cycle D & R, drain and refill again. Do not over fill - check when fluid is hot, the adjust level.
The other way is a Trans-Flush machine which performs a 'fluid exchange' - pulls old fluid out while replacing it with fresh fluid while the engine is running at idle in Neutral.

Where is the trans filter located on my 2WD 04 hyundai santa fe?

The 2004 Santa Fe transmission doesn't have a serviceable filter. There's one deep inside the transmission, but the transmission needs to be removed and disassembled to get to it. The only time that filter would be replaced is if the transmission were overhauled. This is the answer I found online, and after trying to change the filter on a 2002 Santa Fe.

I have a 02 santa fe . can i go 90,000 be for changing belt.

Carfixer 1 is right. The Hyundai engine is called an interference engine, which means that when the timing belt breaks, it will allow the valves to hit the pistons and you will ruin your engine.

Do yourself a favor and replace the belt at recommended intervals. If you are past the 60k mark, have it done right away and save yourself a lot of grief and expense.

Parking brake

I just replaced rotors on my 2003 Santa Fe, There are 2 phillips screws in the rotor that must be removed. There is an auto adjuster on bottom of brakes. That inspection hole is very small! Sometimes you must tap a hammer around the drum to loosen the rust. Hope this helps.
