Parts: I assume you have the 2.7 litre engine
I priced the parts at this website:

Santa Fe , Air intake temp sensor, 2.7l $11.28
Santa Fe , Purge valve - 2.7 l $27.56

The air temp sensor is behind the intake surge tank. I do not have a picture of the sensor by itself.

i have a 2001 Hyundai - 6c3ef23.gif

The purge valve is under the car by the driveshaft and looks like this


I do not have specific instructions for replacing these parts, but I think the temperature sensor unscrews. You may want to use a little teflon tape on the new sensor to seal the threads.

For the purge sensor, remove the vapor hoses and unclamp it from the bracket.

For each sensor, the connector will have a tab you have to press to get the connector off of the part.

Let me know if you get stuck or have more questions.

I have a 2001 Santa Fe and the Engine light is lit and has been for many years. When I took the vehicle for the State Inspection I was told that the Co2 needed to be changed so the light would come off and...

The best thing to do is go to Auto Zone and get your Hyundai scanned for a DTC code. That would tell us which O2 sensor has gone bad. You have three O2 sensors and one of them has gone bad, the O2 sensor sends signals to the ecm to control the air fuel mixture so it will not run to rich or to lean which is causing you to fail the state inspection. Good luck and keep me posted on what the DTC codes are, be glad to help.
