Question about 2004 Hyundai Santa Fe

1 Answer

My Car soounds like its going to stall, its reving high and low, worse when air con is on, i recently took my car to hyundai dealer to have it looked at for this problem, they called me at work and said it may be the speed sensor however probably just the plugs and leads, so they replaced all plugs and leads for the cost of $639.50, i collected my car and the problem was still there, i discussed with them they advised a new sensor will be required, at $900.00 but they could get me a second hand one, so I agreed and explained I just want the noise to stop and the high random reving, they assured me all will be sorted, at that time i pointed out another noise that had developed which was the front brakes and they advised they would take a look abnd repair if nesacarry, upon collection of my car after this work was done and $689.00 later i started my car and it reved sooo high and in reverse was making the horror stalling noise again, i ran into office told the guy who just taken my money to which he replied "oh that noise is your exhaust" OMG is this a nightmare or what, i am a single working mother with no family here, what the heck is wrong with my car? and who can i trust to actually repair it?

Ask to speak to service manager and tell him about your issues. If he can't resolve then contact Hyundai customer relations and ask to meet with an area rep at the dealership.

I am having serious problems with the idle modual it reves at the norm then all of a sudden the reves just increase up to roughly 2.300 and then come down to near stalling

First Check All Air hoses. Make sure no vacuum leak are present.
make sure your ignition coil are good. This will make engine idle roughly. For the rpm to high or to low maybe your air idler is no good. If you're car turn off it might be overheated. Check coolant level. Make your not mixing water with oil. Check the oil dipstick to verify. If like a milky color then it's mixing water with oil. This will car to stall and run roughly

Gas pedal reving up and not relaxing.

I have had a problem on a 2008 Santa Fe with the gas pedal going to idle while driving. I shut the car off and turned it back on and it behaved normally so I drove it to the dealer. It had triggered the check engine light and the Hyundai mechanics were able to read a code that told them that the problem was in the sensor on the pedal. They replaced it under warranty. No problem since.

Hyundai Elantra 2001 auto. Stalling, cutting out, hicupping on occasions. Worse (or more likely to happen)with Air con on, or car/ambient temperature is hot. Any solution, Matthew103

This may not be the fix. But my 2001 has 150,000 and I have had several times the same issue. Plugs and plug wires fixed each time. Do not buy cheap plug wires. Your better off with paying a little more for a good set.

Engine stalls

I would start by checking your IAC (idle air control) valve. It is usually located within or near the throttle body. The inpection procedure varies across vehicle makes and years, I would consult a Chilton's (or similar) repair manual for the exact procedure. If such a book is unavailable, you can remove the IAC and check for excess buildup of carbon or other debris. Let me know what you find!

Cam sensor misfire

If the mechanic pulled a code for a cam sensor, it is very possible that as it gets hot, the cam sensor starts to produce a degraded signal and the engine progressively runs worse. I'd replace the cam sensor without hesitation. The trip to the dealership will cost more than taking an educated shot at the cam sensor.

I have a 2000 Sonata V6 with the same issue (low speed intermittent stalling). Finally found a Hyundai dealer that knew about the issue and replaced the CRANK SENSOR. This has dramatically reduced the stalling but it still occurs very rarely. I think the engine idle speed of my car is abnormally low and this may be a secondary issue not completely related.
