The two codes may refer to the same fault/ THe p0107 says that the Manifold absolute pressure is wrong in other words the amount of air gaining entry to your inlet manifold is incorrect. The P0449 says that the vent valve on the vapour emission control system is open. I think it is more than likely that the open vent valve is allowing air to be sucked into the inlet manifold and this is also being noted by the MAP sensor. If it easy replace the vent valve. A quick fix just to keep you going until the vent valve can be replaced is to locate the vacuum line supply from the vapour emission control charcoal canister and to clamp it closed. This will remove the MAP sensor error and allow the engine to run as it should. THis is only temporary as the vent valve fault will persist until it is fixed.

Code po107

Just because your getting a code from a sensor doesn't mean the sensor is N/G. The MAP sensor reads the manifold air pressure, that can be anything from a vacuum leak, elec short, bad plug/wire, miss, gasket and the list goes on. It can be a bad sensor too, don't get me wrong. Does it run rough, hard start, did you ck the emissions? First things first Vacuum leaks & gaskets are popular. Once in a while I cross paths w/ a cracked manifold. Don't throw your $ out the window, Do it once & do it right. Good luck

My check engine light came on today....I took my 2004 Santa Fe to Auto Zone where they ran a test on it....the code came back PO449??? Any ideas what this means....HELP....I'm leaving in 2 days for a trip...

your going to have to check online for that code and usually no matter what you can always drive a car with the check engine light on as long as the car feels fine.

Knock in engine

the best advice i can give you is take it back to the dealer and let them know of the problem and see if they will fix it since you still have warrenty. because if something catastrophic happens you would be out all of that money.
