#1912 of 1938 2002 Hyundai Santa Fe GLS Gas/Startup Problem
Mar 15, 2012 (6:35 pm)
I had the same issues with my 2002 Hyundai Sante Fe with filling up my car with gas. Everytime I would fill the car up with gas it would not start right away After a few times it then would start up with no problem afterwards I went online and did some research on this problem and I was told the same thing to that it was the purge valve which cost around $250.00 and most of this price is the labor cost the part is cheap from my research I did. I also have a problem where when Im driving my Hyundai Santa fe every once in awhile when I accelerate my car jolts like my transmission is slipping. Do the car stalling to start up when gas is put in the car sound like a purge valve problem?
#1913 of 1938 po102 buf MAF new 2001 Santa Fe GL
Apr 08, 2012 (9:36 pm)
I had replaced the MAF about six months ago with a Bosch because it was giving me the p0102 maf code. It turned out is was a bad hose and it fixed the problem. Now I am getting P0102 Mass Flow Sensor-VAK VOLUMN PER FLOW SENSOR CORCUIT LOW= 2 OF 2 P0102 (pd) MAF FLOW SENSOR CIRCUIT BAD. Well the first thing I did was check the hoses, cleaned the MAF and reset the battery. It ran go for about twenty minutes but idles very rough but accelerates OK. I am at my wits end andybody know what is going on here. I need to fix this as my son is heading off to college in the fall and I dont want him to deal with these types of preoblems.-Thank You

I have been getting PO172 and 1073. I purchased a MAF and reset the computer. It then ran good for about an hour but rough. I then cleaned the throttle bottle and put back together. It starting running really bad and drove it for about an hour to clean it up but still almost stalls. The acceleration if better though. I then got code po401. The first thing I thought about was the egr valve. Well this is what the strange thing that is happening. When I take the middle hose of the 3 hoses off the throttle body the one that is green the car starts running perfect. It doesnt shake and acclerates really good. If I stick the hose back on it starts shaking again. Would that be a bad egr valve and what is the the chance of that going bad at the same time. Also the egr is only 8 months old. So i think by buying the MAF that solved that problem but did it create another problem. Also cleaning the throttle body cause this to? I could replace the egr but I really dont think there is any thing wrong with it and could it be something else?.-Thank You for Your Help!

Don't know if you got the problem fixed by now but I had almost the same thing happen. I had about an inch of water sloushing around the housing of the wire harness which mounts the lights which in turn caused a short circuit. After I removed the water, all is well now
#1916 of 1938 Rear cargo cover (looks like a window shade)??
Sep 05, 2012 (5:05 pm)
Not sure what you call it but when you put something in the rear of the Santa Fe you pull a cover to hide what is in the rear of the automobile. When I pulled it out to cover an item it was not working. Well I took it apart and tried to rewind the cover like a window shade but it now appears to unfixable. Any suggestions where to look and buy another at a low cost?

I broke mine a couple of years ago and went to the Hyundai dealership to replace it. It cost me $300. They suggested checking places like craig's list for these type parts. You can find almost anything on craig's list, I would try there first and see what you can come up with. Maybe you'll get some other ideas from that.

Same here; I have a 2002 Santa Fe that started locking itself up every single time we'd open or close the doors and sometimes while driving and it started about 4 years ago. Also, the two front windows stopped working...the electrical system also messes with the radio, etc. Not much fun I have to say!

I seem to recall that these were discontinued a couple years ago, but you can order one much cheaper online and the old ones (2008 or 2009) will still fit. I order one from Parts.com. Search the Hyundai accessory catalog for "cargo cover" be careful what color you are ordering, they come in beige or black only.
#1920 of 1938 2006 Santa Fe 2.7L engine sputters/stalls
Oct 07, 2012 (1:04 pm)
We have been trying to pin a problem down for a while now. The vehicle is a 2006 Santa Fe 2.7L FWD. The problem is intermittent and has only posted an error code once. What happens is that you will be driving and the engine sometimes will act like it is choking out. On 3 occasions it actually did die out completely while driving along the interstate. I would cry bad gas, but we have eliminated that by trial and error. The only gas that we are sure of being a problem is BP. We put BP in this vehicle and we may as well get the walking shoes on. Luckily the 3 times it did die out, it did eventually start back up eventually. Once we did get an error code when the check engine light came on. We took it to the dealership and they plugged their scanner up to it. They got a code saying there was a faulty O2 sensor. They cleared the code and said they would replace it. And they updated to code on something, I think the ECM. Unfortunately they were out of stock on the O2 sensor and said they would call once they got one/some in. A couple days later we got a call and they said the district service rep had declined to replace the O2 sensor under warranty. They said drive it and see if the problem came back. Well, it did except for the check engine light and they did nothing. Now the vehicle is outside the bumper to bumper warranty and the problem still flares up from time to time. And nobody seems to have an idea what to do to fix it. No code = no clue. We have had a few mechanics say that a faulty O2 sensor might cause the car to run a little rough. But they said it would';t cause it to stall out. To me it seems pretty obvious that it has something to do with the fuel mixture. Why else would BP gas always cause the problem? Anyone have a clue on what we can do to get this fixed? I don't want to take stabs in the dark since it is now out of pocket with the warranty expired.

have you tried an emissions system cleaning/fuel system cleaner? Fuel pump will also cause problems when it is about to go and will not throw a svc eng light....
