I went to my local Autozone today to have a code read and get the freeze frame data. I got a code P0118, Engine Coolant Temperature Circuit High Input. I called the dealer but they are out of stock on the sensor. Would it be a problem to use an after market sensor? I'm just concerned about the quality and accuracy of the sensor. From what I have found out Standard Motor Products and Beck/Arnley makes them.

As an OBD-II input to PCM, you likely be best served using the OE part.. Part at most be 2 day out from region part depot.

If you have the part number, call your local KIA dealer too.... all 3 engine used in Santa Fe is used in the KIA vehicle lineup :thumbsup:

Thanks for the advice. I called the local Kia dealer with the part number (39220-38030) and they had one left on the shelf for $20. Used a 19mm (or a 3/4 SAE) deep socket and a short extension. The sensor came with red thread sealer pre applied so it was plug and play. :gitara:

For those interested in what the freeze frame data looks like check out the pics.

You probably thought I was crazy sending you to a KIA dealer...

Having worked with Kia & Hyundai in same building/shop, if we did nothave Hyundai number, we check our Kia stock,, Sonata shares Optima stuff, and Kia uses the 3.5 in thier product line up..

Dealer I am at now, I will buy the timing belt and tensioner at Hyundai, though they now shares Hyundai-Kia sticker on the packaging, along with the P/S belt (A/C belt replaced at Kia dealer with warranty compressor for $25) for wifes vehicle. Just to find the time to deal with it

Just a little info. I hope it helps someone. Daughter calls me and said her 2001 santa fe 2.7 just died while waiting at a light. So I drove 10 miles to find her - took my Pocketscan to check the trouble codes. She also told me the car had been occasionally lunging forward while waiting at stop sign. Hooked up the Pocketscan - P0118, engine coolant temp sensor. Hmm, car didn't overheat. Nothing makes sense so far. Drove the car home - car lunged while driving down the road. Next day, hooked up scanner again - P0118. Started the car - car idles where it supposed to be, right about 600 rpm. All of a sudden the rpm's shoot up to 1500 for about a minute then slowly returns to normal, then dies. Scanner still P0118. Had my wife pick up the ect sensor since she was already at the dealer for recall repairs o her car - $35. Went back, started the car again - this time rpm's shoot up to over 2500 and is not returning to idle. Anyway, replaced the ect sensor (get oem part. Some reading has led me to believe anything less is futile.) So far all is good. Its been a week.
