Following video is my final work record. Since I just filled up 10 miles ago, I knew that the vehicle has an electrical problem. If not replaced a faulty Knock Sensor can quite literally cause hundreds if not thousands of dollars in damage. In my case, a flat-head screwdriver and a small hammer were used to remove it easily. I used my action cam to record my process but the dang thing recorded over itself because I also did a radiator flush and changed my tires : I have some pics but they don't do justice of the amount of work it took to change.
They may be removed from the top of the tank by removing the back seat and pulling back the carpet. And it may be hard to explain but, the wires outside the covers are anchored which makes it hard to move the covers enough to access the connections. She phoned her husband to come and get her right away, but it took him 20 minutes or so to get there, and the police very rarely patrolled the area due to known drug transactions and severe violence in this area! Of course, you should hit it back in re-assembling steps. I wish it will run perfectly. Those lock rings were tough and highly recommend the tool and maybe soak them with rust spray to loosen them a bit. Said it reads almost full tank of gas, but my gauge still shows empty. Otherwise, tomorrow when the gasoline evaporates I'll vacuum the carpets and put everything back together.
Until a gas station attendant didn't fill my tank all the way and I ran out of gas on a dangerous entry ramp last week. . Once you are finished, just retape the wires to the anchors using new electrical tape. A couple of days later, I disconnected the battery to clear the code for the check engine light, and noticed the fuel gauge was working again, but still not accurate though. Any suggestions for what may be happening here? Now the check engine light is on, and I have to continuously guess how much gas is left in my car because once I fill up it will state the correct amount of gas for a few miles and then drop right back down to empty. Many thanks for your blog and video!!! I took it to the dealership and was told it was something with the fuel sensor. I think if we all filed a complaint we could get this resolved.
I also read similar info in Hyundai-forum, found that yours is better and like a text book, complete with tools requirements. I am not an expert or a well-trained mechanic but I want to replace it by myself. This has made made the fuel gauge needle to go hay wire as well as the check engine light to come on. I bought a used 2008 Hyundai Santa Fe with 99, 387 miles on it from the original owners. It is cylinder in shape with a black plastic cap, which screws off to show the oil filter. I just wanted other people to save their money like me. I wish this info help your work and Thank Tommy O for your comment about it.
A special tool makes the job easier. The filter is different than your normal one, it doesn't have a outside metal cover to it. I will update it on the posting soon. Check engine light being on due to the fuel sensor problem. One time I miscalculated and my car ran out of gas in a not so safe area, so this is a safety issue and needs to be recalled by Hyundai. Remember, the Knock Sensor keeps fuel from detonating in the cylinder … exploding rather than quickly burning as it should.
When will Hyundai take ownership for this and make it a recall? I don't know when gas will be empty and don't have the money to stick into this. They all wear out prematurely and cause all kinds of grief related to fuel guage, trip computer activity. The fuel level sensor output voltage changes depending on the movement of the fuel mechanical float. Posted on Nov 11, 2009 P0463 Hyundai - Fuel Level Sensor 'A' Circuit High Input P0464 Hyundai - Fuel Level Sensor 'A' Circuit Intermittent P0463 Hyundai - Fuel Level Sensor 'B' Circuit High Input Possible causes - Faulty fuel level sensor - Fuel level sensor harness is open or shorted - Fuel level sensor circuit poor electrical connection The fuel level sensor of is mounted in the fuel level sensor unit. The fuel level sensor consists of two parts, one is mechanical float and the other side is variable resistor. D+9 Days Finally, I replaced two fuel level sensors in my Santa fe and it is working perfectly. Replaced both sensors and it went pretty smoothly 7 hours.
If you have a questions, don't hesitate! When I talked to service dept. If you still have a question, don't hesitate it. I then took it to AutoZone and the code said it is the fuel gauge sending unit that needs to be replaced. Unknown what the issue is or what caused the smell. Just a few short days later, the same thing happened all over again. How can Hyundai ignore this very dangerous problem? This should have been recalled a long time ago and I can assure you that neither I or any of my friends will ever buy another Santa Fe unless they fix this problem!! Extended warranty covered it, thankfully.
I know of one incident that the vehicle ran out of gas while the woman was coming home late at night from her shift as a nurse. Thanks again for your blog, it helped a lot!! I have not had it very long at all, and I noticed right after I bought it that the fuel gauge wasn't reading correctly when I filled it up. Your video and blog were the only guide I used and it was spot on! They may be removed from the top of the tank by removing the back seat and pulling back the carpet. So many owners have had this issue, it's irresponsible of Hyundai to not repair the faulty parts given so many complaints. This is a manufacture issue and should be fixed by such not the consumer. Unfortunately, she had to drive through an area on her way home that is considered to be very dangerous area of Illinois.
