#1825 of 1938 Speed sensor
Sep 29, 2009 (6:53 am)
I have a 2002 Hyundai Santa Fe, V6 with 136,000 miles. I cannot get my car inspected. The check engine light is on and testing indicated a speed sensor problem. I had the speed sensor replaced and I have driven the vehicle over 500 miles in an attempt to reset the computer. The garage cannot continue the emission test for the New York State inspection because the last three monitors have not reset. Has anyone else had this problem? My local mechanic has suggested that I take the vehicle to a dealer. Is this going to cost more than a new

Does anyone know how I can find out what the code P1167 means on a Santa Fe 2001?

Believe it or not, the "speed sensor" reading maybe a ghost in your system. I did have this issue. Try these quick fixes. Service the purge valve on your evaporative fuel system. Disconnect your battery overnight. If this does not clear it. have your rotors checked as a variation between rotars will give the speed sensor false readings.
If you do go to the dealer get your rear suspension checked as there is a serious safety issue recall relating to rot. good luck!

hi .i have a santa fe crdi 2.2 diesel.. 2006 new model. it has vibrating clutch pedal.. were there any recalls on this in uk. 3yr warrantly in ireland so they want to charge me €2600 to replace flywheel & clutch... if there were proven cases of recalls anywhere i might be abe to argue the cost with them... any help or advice would be appreciated. tks. Looking at the flywhell how could it tell it was damaged by operator error & if it manufacturers fault. Hyundai Ireland said if it needs replacing then it will be replaced with a modified newly designed DMF.. This is almost an admission that old design was rubbish.. My wanrranty is out by 8months. my friends who has same car same year had flywheel replaced under warranty. lucky sod. any advice >

Wow! I have a 2004 Santa Fe w/116,00 miles on it that has been broken down for over 2 months. Acually it's not broken down because it will start, but I can't drive it. So far, between tows, parts and labor, I have spent over $2,000 on this piece of crap. The transfer case had to be replaced because it was cracked all the way through, which sucks but it got fixed. However, now my engine malfunction light keeps coming on. The computer showed that the throttle position sensor was bad, so I had that replaced. Guess what? It still ran like crap! All of the wiring, connections were checked, and they were all good. So the mass air flow sensor got replaced. Guess what? Still runs terribly. Does anybody have any suggestions? The only code that shows up on the computer is the throttle position sensor, and if you erase the code it will drive somewhat decent for a little while.

#1834 of 1938 P0303 Misfire code, possible valve
Jan 16, 2010 (1:16 pm)
I had a test on my 2004 SF and it came back as follows: Scan test P0303 misfire #3 perform comp test, #3 60 PSI with no oil, 80 Psi with oil, possible valve issue.
The dealer said to check this out he would have to take off the cover and send the car to a machine shop to look at the problem, if any,
What the heck is he taliking about?
Anyone out there with info would be apprciated.
