Are you one of those people who TOP OFF the tank when filling up?

When the EVAP recovery system soak with few ounce of gasoline......the trap vapor will take few days escape.

EVAP system is design to handle fuel vapor. Few ounce of gasoline can damage the fuel vapor recovery relay and decrease the service live of the recovery lines.


You can accelerate the process by locating the charcoal canister (near the nose of the car and same side as your gas filler door)

MOVE the car to outdoor.

Disconnect the EVAP line and let it air out by itself.

DO NOT introduce any heat source or fan to speed up the process.

Reconnect this EVAP hose and use a small amount of starting fluid at the intake manifold.

Please post more information by Clicking on the comment link.

I will follow up.

Did the dealer do a diagnostic when the check engine light was on (did they hook it up to the computer)? It could be the crank position sensor...

If the car is stalling it means that there is a problem in the fuel pump assembly where you have to check the fuel pump ,the fuel filter , the fuel lines.Prepare the tools or equipment to be used in checking or servicing the fuel pump assembly.In the fuel pump so that fuel pump will operate properly : locate the fuel pump,disconnect the fuel lines from the fuel pump,remove fuel pump from the engine,dis-assemble fuel pump,check the daiphram for defects, replace defective parts assemble and install fuel pump.
in the fuel filter:So that when fuel filter is removed ,no fuel will spill on the vehicle and no parts are lost.Locate the fuel filter ,disconnect lines at fuel filter, observe safety practices . if the filter is worn out or dirty rather clean it or replace it and install new fuel filter.
the fuel lines : So that fuel will flow freely and no abstraction within the fuel lines. Locate fuel lines, visual inspection on duel line for learage, disconnect lines at fuel pump and fuel tank, Use compress air to remove sediments on fuel lines re-install fuel lines to the unit. but if the fuel lines are worn out it should be replaced. If the owner of the car don't have time to service the fuel pump , the fuel lines ,the fuel filter . then the owner of the car should go to a car shop mechanic and let the car mechanic to do the job

Alternator problem?

It sounds like your alternator. If the car were to keep running it would have been your battery. When your alternator goes bad it cannot recharge your battery nor keep the computer running. Run down to Auto Zone or something similar and they can test it for you. It will be about $100 if that is the case but most are fairly simple to replace.

2009 Hyunda Santa Fe stalls while driving

I had a similar problem with my Santa Fe. It occurred intermittently but after I turned the steering wheel to the left. After much screwing around by the dealer and trying to baffle me with BS we heard about a strange solution. I am not a mechanic but the problem somehow related to a spring in the Airbag on the steering wheel. Changed the spring and "Stone the flame'n crows" problem solved. Never had a problem since.

2004 Santa Fe stalling problem

I appreciate your predicament.. it's virtually impossible to diagnosis your problem here without personally inspecting the vehicle. Intake air flow is rarely the cause of the problem you describe... it's usually something more sinister. Without more information, I cannot tell you anything more than have it inspected (hopely by a competent technician)... sometimes the obvious is not the cause... it's the innocuousness possibilities that confound us. and it's this confoundment which agravates us.

Santa fe studdering and won't accelerate right? RPM's jump and then steady with continuing studdering?

Engine performance problem causes are many. Try this first.
1. Disconnect the battery cables (both of them)
2. Touch/connect the postive and negative battery cables together for 30 seconds.
3. Reconnect the cables to the battery.
4. Drive vehicle to see if this solved the problem. Let me know what happens.
