The sensor should not cause the engine to stall. All of the accessories not working (power steering and brakes) would be normal with a stalled engine. What I would be looking at is the fuel pump might be going bad. A mechanic can easily check this by placing a fuel pressure sensor on the fuel line to check the pressure. If the engine is losing fuel pressure, ...

The Purge is controlled by the PCM with a pulse width modulated switch signal. It is normal for it to cycle rapidly. This allows small amounts of the fuel vapor to be metered into the cylinders. This method allows the system maintain fuel control. One of the main jobs of the evaporative control system purge valve is to maintain a slight negative pressure ...

15L/100 km is around 15.6 mpg, which is lower than the 19-25 mpg rating provided by fueleconomy.gov for this Santa Fe. Given that the car is brand new, it should still be under manufacturer warranty. You should have the car inspected by a dealership.

When you park, the exhaust system is very hot, but it quickly begins to cool. As it does, the formerly hot components shrink relative to the car's body. I'd guess the exhaust pipe is slipping on something as it shortens. If the sound is not metallic, that may be because there are sound-deadening components built into the system.

I'd suggest your question is subjective. I've owned several Hyundai vehicles and have never had that issue. And yes, I've needed to get them jumped before. My current vehicle, an '08 Azera Limited, had the battery become dead. Connected my truck to it via jumpers and it fired right up. There may be something else going on with your friend's car or the ...

The screeching and fluid on the ground you have described is typical of a large system leak on your power steering. You will need to have a mechanic/repair shop look at your system. Do not drive the vehicle, firstly because of the safety implications and secondly because driving the vehicle will extend any damage that may have been caused.

The number 1 reason for stalling problems when the weather is damp is tune up issues. Generally worn spark plug wires being the main cause. Get a spray bottle and fill it with tap water and just a little bit of salt. Use the spray bottle to lightly wet down the spark plug wires while the cars is running. If the engine stalls then you need a tune up. if there ...

The starter solenoid contacts are probably badly worn which causes the intermittent starting. You should be able to hear the solenoid clicking each time you turn the key. Occasionally a good contact will be made on the solenoid contacts and the starter will turn. If you are confident, you could use an old screwdriver across the large connections on the ...

The tach jumping around is likely a failing ignition failure (or misfire) sensor (IFS or IMS). It is located on top of the thermostat housing on the drivers side of the engine. The part is ~80 USD. It has two bolts holding it on and IFS molded into it.

It depends on how your 7-pin is hooked up, but it looks like there's two common situations: If you just need to actuate the brake lights, it's probably far easier to tap into that wire at or near the car's brake light itself than at the brake pedal switch or anywhere under the dash. (as mentioned in earlier comments). This will just provide 0 or 12v ...

Chamberlain provides Homelink programming instructions for specific makes and models. Just go to https://bridge.chamberlain.com/ According to the site, you don't need any special bridge and Homelink should work out of the box. However, it's a bit more than just "pressing the learn button." I've summarized the steps below, but for full details, visit ...

What's the difference? Absolutely nothing. More than likely if you are seeing this in two (or more) places in the manual, different people wrote it. Really, it's just semantics.

thanks for your input. Since my question, according to a video on youtube , the santafe 2007-2009 requires the rear 60/40 seat to be removed. the driverside has the fuel pump & sensor & the passanger side had the 2nd sensor & they recommended replacing both sensors at the same time,not the float but the switch/wire assy(sensor) which are actually ...

I like to search parts on RockAuto—eBay's search algorithm is only as good as the person entering the part's description into eBay. Searching for a 2007 Hyundai Santa Fe 2.7L V6 (there's also a 3.3 but it appears only automatic) shows only this type of slave (there are several brands but all appear similar): Which is an internal type of slave. Basically ...

A quick search on ebay shows both external and internal (to the bell-housing) type slave cylinders. You will need to look at the vehicle and determine which you have. I used this search string for ebay: Santa fe 2007 clutch slave cylinder And the results show both for 2007...

It's probably "safe" since the tire width (235) has not been changed. But your speedometer and odometer will be off by quite a bit. The 10% change in aspect ratio (55 minus 45) will amount in almost a 2" difference in diameter, and 46 more revolutions/mile - the increase is roughly a 6-7% error. If the VSS "Vehicle speed sensor" is not separate from the ...

I would suggest that you need to check all the electrical connections and cables / wires as something seems to be loose or broken. It may be relatively easy like a battery cable or difficult to find like a loose internal link in the fuse box (which can get moved when a door is slammed for example). Finding this type of problem can make looking for a needle ...

Sounds a lot like what happened to my Corolla. It turned out to be a evaporative system issue. It ranges from a defective fuel cap to issues where system pressure is leaking and it is a real pain to diagnose. When you fill up your gas tank stop at the first click-no more. Do not overfill.

Typically, modern cars have two O2 sensors (upstream and downstream) per bank. Your code indicates that you have at least two banks. I don't really believe your engine would have more than two banks, so two banks it is. Thus, there are 4 sensors: downstream bank 1, upstream bank 1, downstream bank 2 and upstream bank 2. The two sensors per bank are used ...

Crank and/or cam sensor will cause a crank no start scenario. Did you test for spark at the plug to verify it's actually firing? It sounds like it's not if it won't try to run with fuel put directly in the cylinder. This would indicate the sensor not sending the data to the computer to tell it where the cam or crank position is at, which helps determine ...

I had a 2002 Santa Fe and we were smelling gas whenever we filled up. Tried a new gas cap, checked the lines, nothing. Eventually we checked the filler neck. On the 2002 there was a cover to 'protect' the filler neck in the wheel well, but dirt could fly up and catch inside the cover. When I removed it, I saw the area where the filler neck was packed with ...

The EVAP system prevents excess vacuum and vapor buildup in a sealed fuel tank system. A big difference is the ability of the enhanced system to monitor it's operation. The vehicle will run a vacuum or a pressure test depending on the model and inform the PCM of any leak greater than 0.020 in. (0.5 mm). Certain criteria (the drive cycle) must be met for the ...

I agree with Allen Osborne, I had this happen to my Suburban, the line on the back of the pump loosened up and started pouring fluid out. Get a mechanic to check it out.

You should be able to easily find the return line. There are two lines which should be going to your power steering pump. One would be the high pressure side going out to the steering rack. It will have pressure fittings on it. The return side is low pressure and will be attached to the pump via a hose clamp. An alternative to this would be if there is a ...

For anyone looking for an exact answer to this problem. The vehicle stalling is due to the throttle body. Get it cleaned and the stalling will stop. However the gas gauge issue you’re having is the fuel level sensor. I know this post is old but for anyone else looking to solve this problem, I just did all of this with my 08 Santa Fe. Google is the truth! Lol!...

i have a 2007 hyundai accent that is having the same problem and it would stall all the time and i had to let it sit for a while before it would start. i ask around and a friend told me to check the map sensor. so i got a new one and put it in and had no more problems with the car stalling. so check that and see if that helps

Did you check both fuel pumps? Could one be working and one not. There are two on the 2007 one under the driver’s side and one under the passenger side.

I agree with Paulster2 Or maybe you have two different issues: Fuel sensors or related wiring Something else that causes your car to die. The car only dies when the gauge shows empty?
