My Santa Fe with 93000 miles has a check engine light that stays on.  the engine is running fine except when I add fuel.  After I added the fuel and put the gas cap back on, it runs rough and hardly will move.  But after I turn off the car and start the engine the car runs fine but the check engine light stays on.  Can you help?

Try replacing the fuel cap with a new one, there may be a speck of dirt blocking the breather hole causing your problems.

I replaced the gas cap and disconnected the battery. I was told that would reset the system. the light went out for a few days but came back on. I just filled up the tank and the engine ran rough again. Can you think of anythingesle I can do, save taking it to the dealer and have them change me an arm and a leg to diagnois the problem. I'm leaving for vacation in a week.

Replace the fuel pressure regulator located on the fuel rail. This regulator has a small diaphragm inside that wears out over time. It will cause rough idling, no starts, bad mpg and fuel relay burnouts. The part will cost about $45 plus install.
