Re: my 2004 hyundai santa fe has its check engine light...
My Dad's Santa Fe had a similar issue. It was correctly determined that the filler tube (between the gas cap and the tank itself) had begun to rot through. This is because of the way the metal tube passes through the wheel well to bring gas from the filler opening to the tank. Dirt becomes trapped (and builds up) between the tube and wall of the wheel well. When wet, it takes a long time to dry out and is a sponge for moisture. He first noticed an occasional whiff of gasoline when filling the tank (not all that unusual really) and then later, as the holes got larger - drops of gasoline appeared on the ground when filling the tank. If there's a lot of dirt wedged in there - you may not see gasoline leaking onto the ground though, so don't think if you don't see the gasoline - it's not rotted.

The cost of the repair at the Hyundai Dealership was about $300. You might also want to visit the dealer to have them inspect your Santa Fe's "subframe" for rust / rot. My dad's Santa Fe had issues and this $2600 replacement was covered by the factory even though the car had been out of warranty for many years.

P0320-is Ignition/Distributor engine speed input circuit. Inspect the wire harness and electrical plug ins in the area of the distributor. Replace the Ignition/Distributor engine speed sensor. This should clear up your Tachometer problem. Good Luck and happy new Year. From Ernie @ RedDeer, Alberta, Canada.
Hi, turning on the heater didn't cause the check engine light to come on, it just came on at the exact time. It does indicate something is going on, but if your auto is doing fine, don't panic.Usually, it indicates an emissions problem. Take you're vehicle to auto zone, and ask them if they will come out and read the code for you, they will do this for no charge, and it will tell you what the problem is. They will also give you a print out of most all the codes. I have done this several times until I bought my own obd-2 meter. After you have the code, just have them erase it with the meter to clear the check engine light. It may come back on again depending on what the problem is, but I would recommend you doing this. Cant beat it, no charge and friendly service. Good Luck, Shastalaker7
Whenever the "Check Engine" light comes on, there is always a DTC (Diagnostic Trouble Code) stored in the ECM (Engine Control Module). You'll need an OBDII (On-Board-Diagnostics) scanner to retrieve any codes recorded/set in ECM. Once you do this and let us know what, if any codes are set, then we can go from there.
