I had the same problem. Car died on me pulling out of a green light. It cranked but didn't start. Story short... computer showed Crank Shaft sensor failed. Replaced sensor, including timing belt, but nothing. Decided to take it to the dealer... They had the engine replaced (under warranty, it had 99200 miles when this happened)... Brand new from factory.

Your fuel filter my be dirty and needs to be replaced, the other issue you may have is that your fuel pump may need to be replaced.

Start with checking the fuse to your fuel pump and replace the fuel filter.

Thank you for using fixya and keep me posted. Be glad to help you get your Santa Fe running 100% again soon.

Engine died while driving on the freeway, now only cranks but wont turn over/


As with any no start problem, have you checked for spark at the plugs and normal fuel pressure at the injectors ?
Does it crank with normal compression ?

Car can sit n idle as long as you want,can drive it to town about 3 kil n it will die,will turn over but will not stay running,tow it to the yard,starts everytime


Sounds like the fuel pump is overheating and failing, cools down on the tow home, had a piece of plastic paper in a tank once and it was being sucked over the supply pipe causing the engine to cut out and not start again! When the engine had been stopped for a while, it would float away and the car would start again, till it happened again???

98 Honda Passport overheated, died, won't start


The first thing that comes to mind about the no spark found when engine is cranked is the crank angle sensor is not giving the PCM a input signal. Without an input signal, the PCM does not know where number one cylinder is so it cannot start the firing sequence to make the engine start and run. The possible failure of this sensor which I've seen out in the field is usually caused by being exposed to extreme heat. And most of the times the engine cranks but does not start after it cools off and then the engine will start. My main concern is why your vehicle is overheating. I do believe that your vehicle has a timing belt as well. I'm not 100% sure if the timing belt drives the water pump or if it is the drive belt(s) that drive the water pump. I do believe that the noise that you are hearing at 20 mph is your water pump bearings starting to fail. The noise should also fluctuate with your engine RPM 's whether you are moving or in park. If the water pump is driven by your drive belt(s), you can reach down and grab a hold of your plastic cooling fan and try to move it side to side to see if you have play. If you can feel movement, you need a new water pump. Another way of telling if you have a failed water pump is by pressure testing the cooling system. That will also help to find other possible leaks besides the water pump. Usually radiator tanks fail after time and leak at the seems. Make sure there is no white smoke coming from your tail pipe because that usually indicates a blown head gasket. Another way of checking a blown head gasket.... (WEAR EYE PROTECTION BEFORE DOING THIS PROCEDURE!) Remove radiator cap/expansion tank cap when engine is COLD! (Make Sure Radiator Is Topped Off) Start engine and look to see if there is any bubbles coming to the surface. Also make sure that the cooling thermostat is working as well. If the cooling thermostat does not open, all the engine coolant boils over while your driving. If you have any other questions, feel free to reply back.

94 4.0 dies while driving will start after sitting a while


Sorry to say someone will have to have tools ready to check it the next time it quits running.
Could be a relay, the ignition module, the coil, or anything else that can get hot and stop working.

that would'nt make any difference to water pressure! may be possible that your vehicle was overheating! overheating caused excessive pressure in the system, which popped(The noise you heard) one of the hoses, or a connection!

Car stalled from over heating!

Engine will not start


Most likely the fuel pump has failed, check the pressure while someone cranks the engine over.
