Hello and welcome to JustAnswer! I apologize for the extended wait time you experienced, I've only just come online now and would like to assist you with your question.

There are quite a few things that can cause the engine to miss or die and it will require some testing to determine exactly what is going on. What you're describing would usually be caused by an ignition system issue such as a bad crank sensor.

The first step in diagnosing the problem would be to use a scan tool or code reader to see if any fault codes are setting in the engine controller. Have you checked for codes?

not yet no. what protocol does the 2011 santa fe diesel use ?
AU Auto Mechanic: sprinkles08, ASE Certified Technician replied 8 months ago

You'd connect a scan tool or code reader to the data link connector under the dash.

yeah but is it OBD1, OBD2, something else? can't seem to find any reliable info on this - what type of scan tool will read the codes ?
AU Auto Mechanic: sprinkles08, ASE Certified Technician replied 8 months ago

The data link connector is OBDII. Any OBDII capable scan tool or code reader will work.
