Against the middle of the firewall in the engine compartment. If you are looking at the engine, its behind the surge tank of the intake manifold. Has one vacuum hose going to intake manifold and one going to EVAP canister in the center of the truck, and one 2 terminal electrical connector.

SOURCE: how to replace a valve cover gasket 2003 hyundai santa fe

Just take a picture of it with digital camera or phone. And start removing wires and hoses until they are all out of way of cover. Then remove the bolts all way around cover and pull straight up and it will come right off. If not use a flat head screw driver to prise it off. Clean old gasket off of valvecover and engine. then put it bak together. Tighten bolts slowly, start with ones in center ov it and work your way out. Just finger tight. Then snug, then torque em down. Not too tight as if tostrip the bolt or break it off. Cause it be very expensive. also write down everywhere each wire go's unless you can remember

SOURCE: what parts do I need

You need to have a diagram of the entire EVAP
System, to understand what components are there

Then you need to test with a smoke machine or
a scan tool, to confirm a possible component
failure. Your car doesn't set a code, that tells you
what is wrong or what to replace.

I suggest you use a repair shop and be present
in the service bay, to learn how this is done, then
in the future, you can start to do your own work

No spark on the ignition coils

my car would turn over but wouldn 't start, after changing all the same stuff you did it kept not starting again , so i changed the purge control valve and it's been good so far . seems to be a common problem, there are 2 on the car but they say its the one on the engine they always replace, better check that first to be sure.

2004 Hyundai Sante Fe difficulty starting after fill up bulletin boards indicate that it may be a purge valve do you agree and where is this part located on the vehicle.. Thank You

Yes, the PCSV (Purge Control Solenoid Valve) is usually the cause of difficulty in starting the engine after refueling. The 2004 Santa Fe came with three different engines and this valve is located in different places on each engine (2.4 (4 Cylinder), 2.7 V6 and the 3.5 V6). Go to and register your vehicle by VIN #.. you'll then have access to wiring diagrams, shop & owner manuals, service bulletins, campaigns, illustrations and procedures, etc

My 2002 Hyundai Santa FE 2.7 engine dies every time I gas up. It runs fine the rest of the time. So far I have replaced the fuel pump and vent valve. It still stalls. What could the problem be>

The evaporative emissions system consists of 5 major components
1. CCV - Canister Close Valve
2. Charcoal Canister & filter
3. Purge Contro Solenoid Valve (PCSV)
4. Differential Pressure Sensor (DPS - Fuel Tank Pressure Sensor)
5. Fuel Cap

Based on my experience, you have a PCSV which is sticking OPEN and constantly applying a vacuum to the charcoal canister. When you fill up, the fuel vapors which were absorbed by the charcoal are being constantly/continually sucked into the engine intake manifold causing an excessive 'RICH' mixture of fuel-to-air.

2004 hyundai santa fe will not start without pumping the gas pedal after a gas fill-up. research on the internet points to a vent valve. how do i replace it?

The evaporative emissions system consists of 5 major components
1. Charcoal Canister
2. Canister Close Valve (CCV)
3. Purge Control Solenoid Valve (PCSV)
4. Fuel Tank Pressure Sensor (or differential pressure sensor) (FTPS)
5. Canister Air Filter & Fuel Filler Cap

If you haven't done it already, you should have a qualified Hyundai Service Technician properly diagnose this problem. My experience tells me you have a Purge Control Solenoid Valve (PCSV) that is sticking open and is applying constant engine vacuum to the charcoal canister (which was just freshly saturated with gasoline/fuel vapors when you refueled the vehicle).

You can Go to and register your vehicle by VIN #.. you'll then have access to wiring diagrams, shop manuals, service bulletins, illustrations and procedures, etc.

I have a 2001 Hyundai Santa Fe . on vehicle inspection they got a code P0444 and a P0112. any suggestions on what to change to get it to pass?? thanks

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.


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 2002 Hyundai Sante Fe. The check engine light has been on for months.No one can seem to find out why. Every time I fill up the gas tank I have a problem restarting the engine - I have to play with...

My educated guess is that the purge control valve is stuck in the open position. This valve is part of the emissions system on your Santa Fe and normally is closed when the engine is turned off. If the valve sticks open, fuel vapor gets pushed into the engine when filling the fuel tank. This creates a fuel mixture that is too rich on the next start up.

'02 Santa Fe V6 awd, Upon start up after a refuel you have to keep the revs up or it will stall,after that it starts fine.Also after running the a/c it doesn't want to shut off,turn the key back on and off...

One problem at a time please. No. 1!. Your description points to a faulty Purge Control Solenoid Valve (related to engine stall after refuel). The second problem could be caused by 'hot spots' in the combustion chamber -- however, the only way for any fuel to enter the combustion chamber after the KEY is turned OFF, is through the Purge Contro Solenoid Valve - it's the only component directly related to the problem you describe (unless you (or someone else) has modified the engine in some way other than original manufacture's design. Solution (provided no modifications have been performed), replace the Purge Control Solenoid Valve.

It needs a new pruge valve. The purge valve is sticking open allowing fuel vapors into the intake manifold causing a rich hard start condition.
