Question about 2004 Hyundai Santa Fe

1 Answer

I have a Hyundai Santa Fe 2004 that will not start on cold mornings. Hyundai have changed the injectors and local garage have changed everything else (£1000s worth). It still won't start on cold mornings. Am I just being ripped off?

    Hi. The vehicle does eventually start when things warm up or using easy start. The exhaust smoke is white at first. The parts changed are battery, injectors, glow plugs.

Hi thanks for reply may i suggest you check your engines COOLANT TEMPERATURE SENSOR this is not the temp sender unit which operates guage but a sensor which relays temp of coolant ie cold to the ecu and so informs for cold start required ! on older trucks/vehicles this was done by manual device on pump excess fuel delivered then when started auto cuts off same princple but now auto thro ecu+sensor if you had said smoke was heavy blue/blackish when engine eventually started ? this would have certainly been one or two glow plugs not working at optimum however? this seems not the case on your engine so points to ctsensor peugeot use a cable operated coolant sensor which works ok but yours is auto elec so may i suggest 1st check sensor wiring/plug are secure/clean also this sensor is screw into coolant engine block and looks like larger version of temp sender ? which if you check your manual it should give location and is easy enough to change ? hope this info helps ?

Battery replacement


Car Batteries last 3-6 years possisble longer/Shorter - Depends on alot of things, 2005 Vehicle the battery is 4 years old. I would clean the battery termals and have a local shop load test the battery for you. If the battery is weak it is best to change the battery now than have you charging system working hard to charge a weak battery adding more cost to a repair later or a no start on a cold morning.
