My 2004 hyundai santa fe sport 3.5l 3500cc v6 engine acted like it was seizing up late yesterday and now the engine is shaking so bad when i give it gas it vibrates the whole steering wheel


the tune up needed is probably replacement of the injectors as most problems as you describe comes from bad injectors
have the fault codes read to check for failing , crank ,cam position sensors or other sensors that affect performance

Power steering fluid is leaking on the backside of the engine dripping on the exhaust what or were is it coming from?


You have a power steering pump and 2 hoses in that area (which go from the pump to the rack & pinion) which cause the wheels to turn back and forth.
Likely one of the hoses has failed and is leaking.
Be blessed.

Power steering tank wont hold fluid and leaks out beside driver tire


Sounds like a blown power steering line. To confirm, wipe down all surfaces around the power steering unit including the lines. Replace the power steering fluid and start the engine. While 1 person is inside the truck, have them turn the wheel from side to side while another watches the area around the power steering unit paying very close attention around the lines. The high pressure line is the most common cause for leaking fluid. If there's no crack or kink in the line, the issue may be the fitting itself where it connects to the power steering pump. Both parts are pricey but replacing the high pressure line (about $150 at the dealer) is certainly less expensive than replacing the whole power steering unit itself.

2004 Hyundai Santa Fe - power steering fluid leak. Can't identify the hose or metal piping the leak is coming from. Not sure if I need to replace the pump as well. Would like to see a diagram of it....


Not with a diagram. Clean all the hoses and the pump so that everything is easy to see. Start the engine and get someone to put a little pressure on he steering. You should be able to find the leek.

Power steering problems this oil seems to be leaking from the bottom of the car


its either the power steering pipe, or a seal on the power steering rack, be careful driving it beacuse it can lock the steering when your not expecting it. get it checked out asap. either job shouldnt be expensive.

Power steering fluid all of a sudden just leaked out everywhere after i started the engine. i looked under the hood and the fluid is light brown, like air is getting in somewhere. there is a hose (if...


If the hose is split, replace the faulty hose and refill the power steering fluid. (When the engine starts up, the power steering pump pressurises the system which is why the leakage occurred after you started the engine).

My 2002 Santa Fe v6 has developed a power steering leak at the point that all the oil from the reservoir dried out and every day must filled up with new fluid. What should I do?


Bring it to the garage ASAP to prevent damage to the system.
because then it becomes very expensive
let them repair the leak.

Leaking power steering fluid


dear friend-it is unclear where the leak can be so i would suggest than you clean of all the oil and turn the steering from left to right a couple of times then pin point the leak.
