Some models have no filter at all. Mine does not. It has a mount for a spin-on filter just to the left and below the battery tray if you are standing at the front of the car but it was never tapped for a filter. It's really important to check the condition of the fluid if this is the case. And savdragon is correct, DO NOT use mercon/dexron, even the maxlife stuff, I spoke to a valvoline rep who said it's compatible but you can have problems. Global ATF sold at O'reillys and Castrol Import multi vehicle do list compatability. I'm not sure about the Castrol high mileage stuff.

You need to use Hyundai Diamond ATF SP-II M or any fluid which lists compatible. I recommend Hyundai brand fluid but aftermarket is ok. The listing would be on the bottle. Do no use Dextron / Mercon fluids.

please rate my anwers.
Thanks

    You likely have (depending on trans) an external spin on filter which should be replaced. There is an internal filter which if still original would be recommended also. Some garages offer a flush service which will clean the internal filter without taking off the transmission pan.

    You can do it.

HOW TO CHANGE OIL ON A 2002 HYUNDAI SANTA FE. IM 19 YRS OLD AND WOULD LIKE TO HELP MY GIRLFRIEND AND CHANGE IT FOR HER. A DETAILED DRAWING POINTING OUT THE OIL CAP AND THE DRAINAGE AND FILTER FROM...


Lift your Hyundai Santa Fe using a jack and then place the car on jack stands. If you don't have jack stands, drive the car onto a set of wheel ramps.
Pop the hood and remove the dipstick and oil filler cap. The dipstick is near the front engine compartment with the oil filler nearby.
Gather an oil drip pan, a 17-mm wrench, oil filter wrench, cleaning cloths and a new oil filter. Slide under your Santa Fe.

Change the Oil
  • Locate the oil filter and oil drain plug underneath the car. The drain plug is on the bottom of the oil pan, and the filter is to the side of the oil pan.
  • Remove the oil drain plug using the 17mm wrench. Pull the plug out quickly and let the oil drain for 10 to 15 minutes. Check the gaskets and threads for damage. Replace these components, if necessary.
  • Take off the oil filter using an oil filter wrench. Dump the old oil into the oil drip pan and put on the new oil filter. Tighten the oil filter by hand, and then replace the oil drain plug using the wrench. Clean off the excess oil.
  • Go under the hood and add oil. Turn on the engine and check the oil pressure gauge to make sure it rises. Let your Santa Fe run for a minute.
  • Lower your Hyundai Santa Fe and turn off the engine. Take an oil reading on the dipstick. If the oil level isn't at full, add a bit more oil.
Thanks
