Question about Hyundai 2007 Santa Fe GLS

1 Answer

No power when put into drive

The car starts without any issues. An orange check engine light comes on most times the car is started. Occasionally an orange light that looks like a chassy will light up - although I am not sure what this light is supposed to indicate. The car will shift into reverse smoothly, and the idle is strong enough to back out of the drive as normal. When the car is shifted into drive the car creeps at less than 5 mph, and pushing the gas gets no response at all - not even an engine rev (or so minimal that it cannot be perceived). Shutting the car off, removing the car, and restarting the car, sometimes multiple times seems to resolve the issue. This only seems to happen if the engine is cold - either first thing in the morning, or if the car has sat for a while - several hours. The car is stored in a garage and not parked out doors.

If you have somebody push the gas a little while you watch the throttle cables (while in park of course, lol) does it move or seem to have a little slack? does it have any slack at all when not having gas pedal pushed and you push on the cable a little with your finger, no harder than your eye when shut. sorry for the poor example. i am not a hyundai driver so I do not know much at all about them but I do know cars. I can try to help if you will answer.

What could be wrong with my Toyota Echo if the engine chugs while idling, and the car loses power when accelerating (stalling out if accelerating too quickly)?

There are numerous things that will cause this problem. If the check engine light is on, have the codes checked to see if there is a problem the computer has found to cause this issue. Even without the check engine light on, there may be a code stored. You can also do a visual inspection under the hood for any disconnected hoses causing vacuum leaks. These are the best places to begin with diagnostics

2004 honda accord accidentally put power steering fluid in my engine and addednoil. Car freaked out

You might have two issues here. First drain the engine oil and replace with fresh. Second it seems like you may have an electrical issue. On that problem, check your battery connections. THEY MUST BE CLEAN!! Then you want to check basic battery voltage. Should be at least 12 volts. If not then you have a bad battery. If the voltage is good then I have questions. What lights are flashing? external or dash lights? Does it have a security system other than what comes stock? and when you say it wont start do you mean that the engine wont turn over at all? or will it turn over for a long time and not start?

Anytime the check engine light comes on, you check the computer for trouble codes. The codes will not tell you what to replace, but rather what to check.
Let me know what you find out.

Is this a problem with my Santa Fe's computer?

as for the check engine light sometimes the tightness of your gas cap can make that light come on and stay on, try tightening it or loosening it just a little bit. have no clue on the rest of the issues or the possibility of it all being linked but i know the cap cap has been the culprit for check engine light issues i've had when mechanic checked and said nothing wrong!

These engines have a self-diagnostic system built in. Find a manual on how to engage this self-diagnostic - you jump a couple of leads in a junction box and then count the number of times the check engine light blinks in succession. Refer to the Toyota manual for identifying what system is affected. Sounds like a critical component is out - fuel pump perhaps. Don't quess - use the diagnostic system.
