#1831 of 1931 santa fe 2.2l crdi diesel 2006 &later clutch & flywheel problem
Jan 15, 2010 (4:46 am)
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.

I have had to replace the transmission seal on my 2004 Santa Fe about 5 times now.

Jan 16, 2010 (2:16 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.

Does the goodwill repair process work if you are over the warranty period?
I am the second owner of my 2004 SF. They have to take the engine apart and fix the #3 cylinder and valve.
#1837 of 1931 2002 Santa Fe won't start
Jan 21, 2010 (12:42 am)
Was driving down the road and it suddenly stopped. Would not start again. Had it towed to the house and waited several hours and tried to start it again but it wouldn't start. When I try to start it--it doesn't do anything. I thought it might be the starter but it makes no clicking sound as would a bad solenoid make or a whining noise if the starter was bad. Has 1/4 tank of gas. All lights work. I would appreciate any advice that you might give Thanks

Steve or Tidester, can you advise me as to whether or not there is a cabin filter in the 2003 santa fe? and if so, is the same process as changing it in the 2004

I don't see anything in the Edmunds Maintenance Guide about replacing a cabin air filter for either the '03 or '04. Maybe it's a trim specific option?
You could sign up at the Hyundai tech site; the info should be in there.

Steve, thank you for the reply to my msg. In msg 1784, on this site, there was mention of how to change the cabin air filter, in the 2004 santa fe, but I couldn't find any info on the 2003. You suggestion to the hyundai tech site, was perfect. the site gave me everything, I wanted to know.
