Engine Performance problem
2002 Hyundai Santa Fe 4 cyl Two Wheel Drive Automatic 115000 miles
I have a 2002 Sante Fe and I have had trouble siince this morning. (Wednesday).
I went to take my mom to the hospital (radiation and chemo) and the car started to shake and the check engine light came on. The oil light flckers as well. At first I saw light smoke or smelled something hot. I topped of the coolent res and added fuel additive to remove water and mystery oil to the oil. Also topped off the power steering res.
I had the plugs replced a month ago but only drove the car a few days
replaced the last couple of months:
high pressure power steering hose
the a/c compressor.
every thing ran fine for a few days except for the belt slipping and squealing.
when car trouble started I replaced plug wires but to no avail.
I am a licensed massage therapist but only work part time for 10 an hour due to the economy so I'm sorry for the low donation.
btw. I gave as much info as I remember. Its after midnight and I have to take mom to the drs again so I have to get up early. Check post later this morning.
