Have the steering checked to find
out if it is leaking

Only use the correct fluid in your
owners manual

No manual stop by a dealer and ask the techs
in the shop

Ok my tappets on my hyundai santa fe 2003 4 cylinders is making noise and i would like to know what can fix that


The problem with hydraulic lifters is they clog loose oil flow.I will give you a trick my dad taught me years ago.Drain two quarts of the engine oil and top it off with auto transmission fluid.No this will not damage engine.Let the vehicle idle till the noise is gone, may take an hour.Then change oil and filter.I have been using a quart of atf in my oil for 20 years and i drive high mileage vehicles with lots of miles.I am driving a 95 chevy van and a 01 buick both with over 200k and no oil leaks or sludge in the engine.Cheap fix.

Power steering is stiff on 2003 Hyundai Santa Fe and it is making loud noise. We checked the fluid and it is full.


hi you have checked p/steering fluid have you checked the pump drive belt ? it may be loose/worne out and in need of replacement? also more important ? when did you last check tyre pressures honestly ??? these are the 1st things to check at least weekly ? considering age of vehicle and probable milage? if the belt/s have not been renewed ? might be worth doing? before failure when you are on freeway ? you can diy belts saving $$$$s garage cost/labour charge and you can purchase from most good motor stores/factors instead of dealers prices ?

Where do I find the transmission fluid drain plug and filter to replace on 2003 Hyundai Santa Fe?


Some vehicles had filters and some didn't. If you have a filter it will be inside the transmission pan, and in that case there won't be a drain plug. You just take the pan off and try to get as little on you as possible when all the fluid comes out. MUCH easier if you have a lift.

If you don't have a pan then the drain plug is on the bottom. Manual transmissions don't have a pan, but sometimes the automatics didn't either.

Fluid: Hyundai Manual Transmission fluid if it's a 5 speed, and Hyundai ATF or Mitsubishi Triple Diamond ATF only if it's an automatic. Dexron and generic ATF does not fair well in these transmissions.

Call a dealership parts department with the VIN number and see if there is a filter kit available for your vehicle if it has an automatic transmission.

WHICH POWER STEERING FLUID TO USE IN 2003 HYUNDAI SANTA FE


You must use the fluid type stipulated by the vehicle manufacturer as there are different specs for different vehicles.

The specification for power steering fluid should be listed in your owners manual. You can then purchase a quality brand at that spec.

If you don't have the owners manual ring the dealer service department or parts department and they will give you the correct specification for your particular model.

Power Steering Pump on 01 v6 santa fe


Sure sounds like its low of fluid or the filter is very dirty! My guess is that it works well driving straight open road. Most often the filter is inside the pump. Frankster016
