    Model: Sante fe - crdi 2.2 auto 4x4
    Year: 2008
    Mileage: 9000
    Problem: when accelerating hard it goes through the gears but sometimes when changing from 4 to 5 automatically - there is a shudder at the wheels, then a puff of white smoke and then no acceleration from the pedal as if the engine has cut out and after about 10 seconds all comes back and away you go.
    Also: the 4x4 light does it work off the switch per say of does the dash light only come on when the clutch is engaged.
    Also: If a cam belt breaks, can the pistons clap and bend valves
    Also: Any way of raising the suspension by +/- 20 MM to around 220mm.
