#205 of 211 Ticking noise in engine
Dec 26, 2011 (7:53 am)
I bought a 2004 Hyundai Santa Fe about two months ago and was running nice and quiet when I received it. Two months later I have a ticking noise that has been increasing gradually until recently. Now it sounds quite bad and I'm afraid if I continue to drive it I might wreck something and have some major expenses. Is this noise from valves? There were no records of the timing belt ever being changed it has almost 92k on it. I would greatly appreciate some advice on this.

Does the ticking noise vary with the rpm of the engine? In park, rev the engine a little. Can you hear ticking? Or does the ticking noise vary with the speed of the car. Ticking gets faster when you speed up.
#207 of 211 whistling noise, stops when brakes applied
Oct 28, 2012 (7:53 am)
My 2009 Santa Fe, which I love, recently developed a very, very loud whistling noise usually after driving more than 10-15 miles. Applying the brakes stops the noise. The noise is so loud when cruising along that people actually look as I go by. The dealer said it was due to the brakes having dust and they cleaned the dust and they said my brakes/pads were fine. However, the noise is still there. Any help? suggestions? thanks
#208 of 211 Whining noise after major repair
Mar 09, 2013 (2:37 pm)
Wife's 2005 3.5LV6 60,000 miles had major warranty repairs to engine. After the repair, it runs fine and drives fine, but there is a whine that is too loud to ignore. The whine is at or proportional to the engine RPM, rising and falling with engine revs. It is apparent upon starting with the car not moving.
The whine was not there before the repair.
When accelerating, the whine is very noticeable, changing pitch as the transmission shifts. Applying power makes it louder. At cruising speed >45 it begins to disappear in favor of wind noise.
Dealer initially identified it as coming from the power steering pump. They flushed the pump, no joy. They replaced the pump, no joy. The whine is still there. The dealer consulted engineering, and they are now saying that this is something to do with the "steering rack." This does not seem plausible as the whine is there when the car is in neutral and not moving.
Any help or advice appreciated.

Sounds like what we had. A steering rack will set you back $1000, sorry to say. Hyundai wouldn't cover it as part of the extended warranty. Now, just this week I sunk $1300 into it for a Fuel Pump Regulator and a complete exhaust system. We're right at 100,000 K miles. I don't think we'll buy another hyundai.

It might be your transfer case. I had a 2002 with the same problem only mine occured at 150000 mi. The whine was dependent on motor RPM
The dealer told me that a rebuilt one would set me back $1500 and a new one $4000. I did neither and got another 85000 miles out of it before I sold it. I had no other issues

UPDATE. Hyundai factory guys told the dealer to replace the power steering hoses, and that did it. The whine is gone. All in all, good experience due to persistence of service advisor advocating for us and keeping at it until problem was solved.
