I recently changed the spark plugs and wires in my 2005 hyundai santa fe and it is not running well i.e. missing, popping. Is there a sensor that I could have knocked loose?

Asked by Aug 11, 2016 at 03:44 PM about the 2005 Hyundai Santa Fe GLS 2.7L AWD

Question type: Maintenance & Repair

I was really careful about not mixing up the wires and plugging in all the hoses and electrical clips. I hear a little buzz from the engine once I've stopped trying to start the car. I can get the engine to run if I really pump on the accelerator but it won't idle.

could be many things but first place to start is get a firing order chart with diagram as to where plug wires go and double check that then you may want to start looking into do the wires all have good connection at both ends. then start looking into weather the coil(s) are producing proper spark and you should find your issue there and shouldnt cost you anything to figure out you can either try to google firing order or you can have the parts store get it for you.

best way to test for spark is buy an in line spark tester
