Question about Hyundai Santa Fe

1 Answer

Hey Ghost; My 04, Santa Fe has 62,000 miles on it and needs transmission service, my dealer / service center wants to do a flush using MOC fluid with an additive. They tell me they can do only a drain and fill with OEM SP-lll. What do you think? My thoughts were do the drain & fill myself with the SPlll and drive for 500 miles, then do another drain & fill. Then do it every 15k miles with SP-lll. I don't know much about this MOC brand do you?

What would cause a knock in my engine/transmission when I am breaking from 20 to 15mph in a 2002 hyundai santa fe?


Depends on whether it is some internal knock or external to the engine/transmission. If external you will need to have the transmission and engine mounts checked.

If it is internal and definitely originating from the engine or transmission it is impossible to say what the cause is without testing the car. Changing the fluid in the transmission will not cure a knock of the kind you have described.

How do I replace my transmission fluid and filter in my 2007 Santa Fe


You have to drop the transmission pan. This is not something that you should do. Take it into a transmission shop or the dealer.

2002 Santa Fe 127174 miles. On hills car slows dwn, rpm is climbing, speed is droping. on steep hills from a dead stop rpm's are 4,000 speed is just below 20mph. have had the fluid flushed twice.


sounds like your transmission is going bad fast. get it checked asap to see if it can still be saved. aamco will take a look at it. if its completely bad, then getting a new transmission might be cheaper than getting the current one fixed so look into that!!

Power steering pump in noisy when first started when cold, 2004 santa fe 3.5, has 62000 miles


Try flushing the fluid,which you should be
doing every 3 years
Add a bottle of Lubgard for power steering or
what ever the dealer has
Use the correct MFG Fluid

Eventually you will replace the pump,
when you can no longer stand the noise.

Then steering rack most likely is about to fail
from not changing the fluid and is causing stiffness
and high pressure thus the noise

Where is the trans filter located on my 2WD 04 hyundai santa fe?


The 2004 Santa Fe transmission doesn't have a serviceable filter. There's one deep inside the transmission, but the transmission needs to be removed and disassembled to get to it. The only time that filter would be replaced is if the transmission were overhauled. This is the answer I found online, and after trying to change the filter on a 2002 Santa Fe.

I AM TOLD I NEED TO CHANGE THE TIMING BELT ON MY 2006 4X4 HYUNDAI SANTA FE BECAUSE I'M AT 62,000 MILES AND MY MAINT. BOOK STATES IT SHOULD BE CHANGED AT 50K. IS THIS COSTLY?


$400 to $500 dollars... and the replacement interval is not 50,000 miles.. it's 60,000 (by the way, the reason the belt should be replaced is the fact IT'S GOING TO BREAK.... no doubts!).

How often does the transmission need to be flushed.


Rarely. Dealerships want you to do it often.

In the 60s and 70s the service cycle was every 60 to 70 thousand miles. This is what I do and it works out fine.

By far the most important thing you can do to save your transmission is to place a small magnet on the bottom of the transmission pan near the fluid plug. This traps small metal flakes and chips. You can also buy plugs which have magnetic collectors in them.

Transmission filter on 2003 hyundia santa fe


In 2002 they discontinued the external trans filter. So your vehicle could have the external filter. If you look next to the trans dipstick tube, on top of the trans case you will see the filter or you will see just a spot where the filter use to go before they eliminated it. Yes, the filter does llok like a regular engine oil filter. If the trans does not have the external filter ontop then there is no service to the filter to be done, the only recommendation is to bring vehicle into a shop to have the fluid flushed. By the way, make SURE you use the correct Hyundai SP-III trans fluid (not dexron/mercon). This fluid is specific to the Hyundai and can not be purchased from auto parts stores, only the dealership. Failure to use SP-III will cause premature wear to the internal bands and clutches.
