Hello everyone

I’m sure hoping someone can help me with this issue….

History - I purchased my 1st 2004 Santa Fe brand new and sadly in 2018 I had to retire it however I loved my vehicle I sought out another 2004 Santa Fe summer of 2018.

Just recently my fuel pump quit; replaced that and then 24hrs later my timing belt went. I just learned that the Hyundai engines are intereference engines and when the timing belt goes it destroys the engine :( :(. Is this true? We just ordered the entire kit for $500 CND (timing belt, water pump, etc).

When my Santa Fe quit - it jerked a bit then just stalled. No loud noises, no noticeable fluid leak, smoke. Just stalled. It cranks however won’t start.

My original Santa Fe same thing happened however during warranty and I don’t recall any engine issue….and the timing belt was replaced and never had an issue.

Any suggestions, etc to this matter very much appreciated.

In gratitude
Vida

Have you tried changing the crank shaft sensor? I have 2014 with jerks and stalled when idle, no other signs or codes, I change the crankshaft sensor and it worked perfectly again.

Hi Joe - thank you so much for this. Yes it is the crankshaft sensor and timing belt - however the timing belt didn’t snap off and the timing was still in good shape - no issues with the motor. Now awaiting the parts :)
Thanks so much for replying - greatly appreciate it.

Cheers
Vida
