Question about Hyundai Santa Fe

Open Question

Had to replace my gas tank on my 2002 Hyundai Sante Fe last yr with a brand new Hyundai tank purchase by my mechanic Rod Wardwell of "Wardwells Repairs" Caribou Maine. He purchased it from the Hyundai dealor in Bangor Maine which is the closest dealor and is 150 miles away which is why my mechanic did the job. As I can't drive 6 hours to have my car repaired. Now the 1 yr warently expired on March 31, 2011 and the tank had a defect, a crack on the top of the tank. So when i filled up the car with gas it poored all over the ground causing me a dangerous and costly situation. I called the Hyundai 1 800 number and placed a claim and shortly after I received a phone call back from Mke advising me that Hyundai will not replace the defected tank and I had to pay another $900.00 for a defected tank which is not my fault. Can you help?

SOURCE: Problems fillng the gas tank 2002 Sonata

i just went through that problem

Evap canister / close solenoid and air filter $211- 230.00 in parts

$675- $71.00 at dealships for this small 30 minute task

If no check engine light Evap canister and air filter - fixxes problem 100 %
note:you may be able to get by just replacing air filter- works
rarely

if have check engine- close solenoid and purge solenoid may need replace- you local autozone- like autozone will pull check codes for free

the how to:

Jack car up in rear - behind right rear tire - canister -canister close solenoid & air filter are located in a plastic box with metal strap and one bolt.

Unscrew bolt everything drops down the EVAP CANISTER is held to plastic box by wirer tie . Remove wire tie and solenoid connection.
There is a small metal wire clip the holds the solenoid electrical connection together with a flat screw driver pry up the wire clip , off is okay too , ....it will go back on.

Once you have done all that you have full access there are i believe from memory 3 rubber hoses with clips ......Mark hose connects very important mark the hoses way the going on evap canister with color tape .

Next, remove whole assembly- the solenoid and air filter will come with the evap canister.

Now that have the whole assembly move to your work bench
look to see how the soleniod hook up to the canister and the air filter - now, disconnect the hose to black solenoid and remove the air filter which hook to solenoid and solenoid at same to ......

Next seperate the the solenoid and air filter- you should be air to put your mouth on solenoid and blew air in one hole and out the other- this solenoid is noramlly open- if air dosen't go threw is stuck closed and must be replaced.

same with air filter- this air filter are know for get plugged and should be replaced every 30,000 miles.

Also note: over fill you gas tank , at fill up - can cause the Evap to get liquid gas inside which cause the chorcoal in the filter to swell up and plyug the system up.------ you should when fill up stop pump gas after the auto pump click off on normal work tank and not try to top off you tank.

note: check with your deal for exact wieghts
weigh the evap canister - six pound - replace it- new one is about 4-4.5 pounds - it is just best to replace .The evap holds gas fumes then send to engine so that dosn't vent to

All parts are dealships only -

This is easy fix and normal, for gas fill problems

canister Evap 161.00
canister close solenoid 43.00 may or may not be used
air filter 7.00

not used in this fix- check engine fix use these parts
sensor price ?
purge valve 39.00
canister close solenoid 43.00

didnt you get a warrenty thrown in on a £37000 car,did this occur within 90 days of your purchase,if so go to trading standards you have a 90 day warrenty by law,sounds like they took there time finding the problem so they could not be liable for the repair bill,also visit the landyzone website i use it and its a great source of help and advise,get the landrover customer care no of another rr dealer and chat to lr people themselves and go to the vosa website and check on the recalls for range rovers.

good luck

Just bad luck! You mean the engine does NOT turn over when you turn the key ? Either , Batterie toast, dirty batt connections, starter or relay/fuse kaput.

SOURCE: Leaking transmission fluid took to transmission

Nothing listed for a recall or notice about your problem. There was one for a bad o-ring that would cause the transmission to shift out of gear but no defects for a recall.

It could have been material defect in the part in questioned. But, it sounds like you may have ran something over to start the damage or breakdown of the part. Do you remember hitting or driving over anything?

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.

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.
