#1142 of 1173 Recommended Service ?
Apr 29, 2012 (9:18 am)
Had the Sante Fe in last week for an oil change. My Service Advisor came to me with Clipboard in hand with some recommended service in addition to the oil change.
These were a Coolant Change along with Induction Service each around $120. Remember, my vehicle has only 25K. I passed on both and couldn't wait to get home to check my owners docs.
Couldn't find anything about Induction Service and the first Coolant change should be 60K
Has anyone else run into this and/or know what Induction Service is all about ?

Oh that sounds like fuel injector cleaner---waste of money.
A coolant change is both age and miles related so after a couple of years it's not really a bad idea.

well, remember this guys are there to run a business, if they can get you to do anything on top of any warranty claims its surely money in their pocket,.
at 25k miles the coolant change might be a bit early. However the induction service might be relevant. I have a 2008 santa fe ltd with the 3.3L engine.
Around 32k during cold stars the truck would stumble for a few seconds after starting, and no check engine light. i did some checking on my own and found it. the problem was an unusual amount of carbon and soot in the throttle body plate. it turns out this modern cars have an exhaust re circulating system that re routes exhaust gas back into the intake manifold and that's how the soot and build up gets there. The solution was simple, went to autozone and purchase a throttle body cleaner (4.99+tax) also went to hyundai to purchase a throttle body gasket ($3.00 + tax) then remove intake plastic tubes then 3 10mm bolts for the throttle body, you don't need to remove the harness its long enough for you to spray and clean all the build up on the plate. i currently have about 41k and issues with the engine so far... if your not mechanically incline i suggest you invest on the induction cleaning service.around 35K just to prevent any issues. hope this helps...

Thanks for the info--- I did ask if Induction Service meant cleaning the Injectors. Was told that was part of the procedure but also
included other steps ??
What bothered me was that I could not find the word " Induction" on the Maintainence checklist.

If your car is running nicely, you don't need injector service, is my opinion. Unlike say the oil filter or the radiator, the injectors usually never need service on a modern car.
Besides, all quality gasolines have additives for this sort of thing.

I have had the same problem.
I have a 2007 santa fe and had it replaced under warranty
the day we got it back it started doing the same thing as before (with the fuel guage) we didnt have time to return it that day and the next time we were abe to return the car for it to be replaced they said it wasnt under warranty anymore so I had a fit right on the showroom floor and guess what... I got it repaired for free with a phone call later saying how sorry they were lol

Hi there..I read your post re: issue with Santa Fe surging when in idling. I own a 2004 Santa Fe and am having similar issues.. When stoped at intersection on idle it lurches forward and I put in neutral. when backing up it stalls. My dealer in Scottsdale kept the car for 6 days and charged me $800 for repairs, but since their are no indicator lights and the computer isn't showing anything..they don't know what to do..I'm at a complete loss..
What was the outcome of your problems?
#1150 of 1173 Losing Power
Jul 19, 2012 (7:06 am)
I have a 2011 Hyundai Santa Fe. The first time I lost power -- going from 50 to 20 in a matter of seconds, and the engine light went on, I read the manual which said the gas cap was loose. No mention of bringing it to the dealer. So, I tightened the cap and the car started and drove for almost a month just like before. Two days ago I was driving 70 on a dual lane and the same thing -- 70 to 30 in a matter of seconds. Push on accelerator and couldn't go above 30. Got to side of road and checked gas cap. Sat a few minutes rereading the manual. The car started just fine and I drove on to town. The next day I was driving up a hill and went over a traffic bump and it did it again. I kept going this time and could drive no faster than 25 through the city to the dealership and up hills I was going about 10mph.
At the dealership they could not look at it right away and when I went back out to check it was fine. Has anyone had this problem of losing power on the 2011 or new Santa Fe's? I read several postings of the previous model but only one -- a 2008 -- of the current model.

I guess time will tell if it was fixed
Hope this helps you
