Hyundai Santa Fe 2010: Does this model have a timing belt or chain?

Answered by CarsGuide 11 Oct 2019

Most versions of the Santa Fe diesel had a timing chain, but there was a 2.2-litre CRDi diesel, codenamed aD4EB-V, made between 2006 and 2010 that had a belt. Check the code number of your engine to see if you have that engine.

Can a faulty battery cause loss of power steering at low speeds?

Answered by CarsGuide 13 Oct 2017

The power steering is an electrical system, so a problem with the battery could affect the power assistance. You should still be able to steer the car even without power assistance. It won’t affect the braking.

Hyundai Santa Fe 2010: Turbo lag issue

Answered by CarsGuide 26 Apr 2013

Finding the cause of an intermittent problem is difficult because it doesn't always occur when the mechanic is there to witness it. It means he's flying blind when attempting to diagnose it. Likewise, if it doesn't happen when the diagnostic equipment is connected everything will indicate normal. The only thing you can do is to persist with the dealer and urge him to continue to seek a solution. It might help if you to set up a video camera in the car and have it running every time you drive the car and record it when it happens. That would show the dealer that it does actually happen and you're not making it up, and might give him some information that might help trace the problem.

Answered by CarsGuide 1 Feb 2013

You need to have them inspect the master cylinder and the clutch to determine what the problem is. If it is a leaking master cylinder, and as a result the clutch has been contaminated by the leaking fluid then you have a legitimate claim, but you won't know until the clutch can be checked.
