Make sure the caplipers are doing their job properly. if the calipers are not functioning properly that will cause uneven wear as well as a dragging, as in the pads are not coming off of the rotor and therefore rubbing while you're driving. also, check to see that you are getting a pad that will wear without so much rotor wear. they make pads that will absorb more wear so that you don't have to replace the rotors every time you have your brakes done. And if that doesn't work... no joke, change your braking habits. unfortunatly, to many people wait till they're at the stop sign or red light to apply the brakes instead of preparing for the known. my brakes have been on my truck (HEAVY) for 50,000 miles (hard use) and have only begun to squeak in the last 100 miles. Changed my brakes completely and my braking habits. good luck

After I fill up, (whether it's 1/2 a tank or 1/4), my car will stall unless I pump the gas for about 60 sec. My Sante Fe has around 104,000 miles- it also only gets 13 miles to the gallon. I also had an...


From what I read, you may have an issue with the EVAP system. This closes your fuel system vents after you drive it for a bit to allow fumes to be collected in a charcoal canister, and then to be routed back into the engine under certain conditions. I feel that you are getting too much pressure in your tank. The un-doing of the battery will just wipe away the old check engine light issues, until your computer finds another. You also might get your fuel pressure tested to see if it's within specs.

I have the same issue with my 2003 Sante Fe. After I fill up, (whether it's 1/2 a tank or 1/4), my car will stall unless I pump the gas for about 60 sec. My Sante Fe has around 104,000 miles- it also only gets 13 miles to the gallon. I also had an issue with the check engine light. I had 4 different garages check it and all 4 told me they didn't know why it was on (has beem on since 2005). I recently replaced the battery and it went off. Ever since I've had the problem filling up.

Need firing order with diagram


Firing order 1-5-6-3-4-2-7-8
Distributor rotor turn's clockwise
cylinder's 1-2-5-7 left side of motor
cylinder's 2-4-6-8 right side of motor back side by fire wall.

Maintance

Keep up with your oil changes every three months or 3,000 miles which ever comes first, also at same time have all fluid level check, fuel filter and air filter replace once a year, tune-ups every two years, have your brakes check once a year, unless then feel funny have them check right away, transmission if fluid and filter has not been change every 30,000 miles, I leave it alone or new fluid will damage transmission clutches and transmission will have to be overhaul within 30 to 60 days.

I have a crunching sound coming from the front wheels when applying the brakes at a low speed and only after I drive the car a few miles


sounds like the pads have worn down, or there's debris between the pads & rotor. in my personal experience, the stock rotors from hyundai don't hold up very well. i replaced pads (front and rear) at around 45K miles, and had the stock rotors turned down. less than 1K miles later, the front rotors were already warped! there have been many complaints about hyundai's rotors, so i replaced mine with a set of raybestos rotors and also put ceramic pads up front. 20K miles later, they're still working great.

Rear brake pads wear out every 30000 miles on 2002 3/4 tod hd , rotors are pitted bad


That's to be expected and is completely normal.

Rear brake shoes as fitted to drum brakes can typically last up to 60k miles with periodic adjustments, but you have rear disc brakes and the shoes will typically last half of that.

Also, modern brake pads no longer contain asbestos and are now made using harder metallic compounds; the direct result is that brake discs (US=rotors) are also considered to be consumable items as they are worn down by the harder pads. It's not unusual to have to replace front discs every other pad change and rear ones with every pad change; in both cases the mileage will typically be around 30k miles on most models.
