I would guess transmission or fuel pump. The question is when it loses power does it **** or like has a muffled backfire, if it does I would go with the fuel pump, may even need a tune up. I would tune it up first as that is the least expensive and go from there. Hope this helped tim

Why does it lose power going up hill and fine on level ground


if the transmission dont slip that means the engine lacks power.
(torque)
this can be from forgetting to do tune ups>? every 60k miles. or per the operators guide, some cars need spark plugs every 30k did you RTM read the manual yet>? please do.
in order of likely (not physics)
bad spark (misfire) induced low power.
bad fueling lean
bad fueling too rich. (more misfire spark plugs turn black (tips)
bad engine. (compression loss)
the rare CAT melted, (inside) and getter worse.

to solve a riddle we do tests. simple tests with simple tools.
do you want to guess or test. it's your call.

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!!

What is the fuel economy for a 2001 hyundai santa fe ? is it normal to go throu gh half a tank of petrol in 3 to 4 days ?


Average for a V6 engine 2 wheel drive model is 20mpg. That is 20 miles per gallon US.
If you have an 18 gallon tank, you could expect 180 miles on a half tank of fuel. Again, this is US measurements.

My 2007 diesel auto Santa Fe Elite has an issue where it stalls or completely stops when it is warm (usually after driving for around an hour). It also loses power going up hills and jumps out of cruise...


hello I am having a issue with my santa fe diesel and currently suspecting that the oil that the service center is using is a generic oil used in both diesel and petrol engines. I am suspecting that the oil is too thin and causing compression in the cylinder issues and can be seen under load on low revs and very little responsiveness from the accelerator and at times the engines misses and has at one point stalled. You may also hear that the engine rattles on acceleration. I am going to experiment in putting in an oil particularly for diesels only and see if that makes a difference. I topped up 500ml before the last service on a 5w-40 diesiel synthetic oil and that seemed to make a big difference. I am guess 5w-30 will be better choice but did not have that sitting around at the time.
Be interested if anyone else experiments with an oil change and it works.

2003 4cyl Santa Fe has intermitent jerking that sometimes results in stalling. Increasing in frequency. Recently had tune up, new belts and fuel line clean out. This jerking was happening before tune up...


Scan for codes. Discribe when it jerks! Under a load,going up hill,pulling away from a stop? Does it shift okey? Possibilities--Bad ignition coils, Bad Throttle Position Sensor, Bad EGR Valve,Dirty Throttle Body ETC.
