My 2004 Hyundai Santa Fe wouldn't start upon fueling in early 2014. Replaced Purge Control Solenoid Value. Now same issue again. What do i do next?

Asked by Jun 28, 2016 at 10:09 PM about the 2004 Hyundai Santa Fe GLS 3.5L

Question type: Maintenance & Repair

I googled the problem in 2014 and had my mechanic replace the purge control solenoid valve.  Earlier this year the issue came again not starting after fueling. I stop fueling before it clicks so as to not over fill. I'm thinking they should have replaced the purge control valve and not the solenoid but I'm not sure.  I think they should replace that now.  What else could it be? They checked the mass air flow sensor in July 2014 and it showed emissions errors.  Your assistance is appreciated. Thank you.

Step 1. Always scan for codes first. If you are googling and telling the mechanic what to do hes not going to take responsibility for a service not changing the issue. $100 fee purchases a good diagnostic with whats really the cause of trouble.

The causes should be stored in the memory, but even if they are not, a good close inspection of all the items in that black box where the valve and solenoid are should show a lot of dirt crud and debris. There is also a filter in there. Your problem could be caused be either the valve or the solenoid and can also be caused by both as it was in my 2001. The purge control valve should have been checked by the mechanic while he had it apart, and they tend to leak and cause the hard starting problem.
