Having problems with your 2004 Hyundai Elantra ?

My 2004 Hyundai elantra shifts up and down from 2nd to 3rd gear for know reason and also if left in drive, it wants to bog the motor instead of shifting down. What would cause this?

\015 The fluid was changed about 5000 miles ago. The transmission was changed about 60000 miles ago after breaking a final drive gear.\015 Posted / edited by AnonymousUser on : 15-01-2018

2001 Ford Escape XLT (4WD, V6) Automatic Transmission. It seems that when I shift to Drive the transmission does not want to go into first gear. If I manually shift down to first gear it works OK. I can drive by starting in first gear, shifting up to 2nd gear manually, and then shifting to Drive. The O/D Light blinks on and off on the dash yet when I push the O/D button on the end of the shifter it does nothing. Does anyone know what would cause this? Why would it go into first gear manually,

I have a 98 audi a4 1.8t and for some reason it doesn't seem to shift right. It occasionaly will not want to shift and shifts late at around 4000rpms instead of 3000rpms when I drive the car normal. I hade a friend chech the diagnostic codes and he had told me that one of the codes was for a Acceleration Pedal Sensor that was Low. Is this what is causing the late shifting or could it be something else?

Took my Ciera to a mechanic today because the car would not engage the fourth gear, they drove it and check it ??? and $ 95 bucks later they said there was nothing wrong with the tranny ( still does not engage the over drive ) But they found that one motor mount is broken and another loose, so they wanted $546 to replace them ( one motor mount $46 and the others $64 for both ). So instead I'll try to do it myself!?! So how hard is it, to do it??? $247 for flushing the cooling system is that all


Looks like a rip off hack to me. as far as the 4th gear. i dont know how i could help you there, their are far too many things that could be wrong without looking at it. i would suggest a new mechanic though ... 1995 Oldsmobile Cutlass Ciera

I have a 2003 2-wheel drive 2500HD silverado, i accidentally drained the tranny fluid out except for what was left in the pan instead of the oil, realized my mistake shortly after it would rev up before shifting into gear, then put and new filter and gasket on tranny and filled it up to the right amount, seemed to help and then today it wouldn't back up and it hesitates shifting from first to second, transmission junk?

I have a 2000 GMC sierra 2500 truck. The guy I bought it from had a new transmition put in it. After driving a while I noticed that the tranny wouldn't shift into low gears 1st & 2nd on comand. and when put into low gear it would shift out as if it was in drive. Also, once in drive the tranny wants to get stuck in drive and not shift to over drive. I replaceds the switch on the tranny and installed a new shift cable. the lights on the colum work and the shift linkage is working fine. The truck w

93 Chevy Pick-up,my son put washers between the torque converter and flywheel so the starter would engage. Driving down the road the trans locked up and killed the engine. He tried starting it again the motor would not turn over, after the third try something popped and the motor started-would not go into any gear. I replaced the torque converter but the trans would not pump fluid and would not shift. Fluid did come out the top port of the trans. What kind of problems can I expect from the pres

The break tube from the right tire has rotted off and leaked fluid. i want to know if that would be the ONLY reason why the break pedal would hit the floor cause there is no fluid pressure? and the rear left tire started smoking when i would break at an intersection when this happened at complete stops.Would that be cause the front breaks do all the work and the back breaks just started kicking in or would it be that being dry of fluid, the heat of no fluid made the smoke? Because it still break

I use a gell cell battery to run a resmed device when I go tent camping. I would like to be able to recharge it from my vehicle on a day trip while camping. I want to give it piority in the charging circuit as my vehicle battery would be able to handle several motor starts and I would need to charge the gell cell as much as possible with limited driving. I thought a switch arrangment may work that would change from the main battery for starting to the gell cell during driving to recharge it.


Work on the assumption that a battery needs 15 mins of engine running to fully recharge after one start,so connecting a gell cell battery to the cigar lighter would work perfectly well,especially if the cell was down on charge. ... 2005 Volvo XC70

I have an auto Transmission. In the morning, when I put it in drive it doesnt shift out of 1st. after i drive it for a little it will finally shirt into 2nd. It shifts hard when it does, but after that it runs all day. It only does it when I left the car sit for a few hours. Also, when i try to switch to the triptonic, it doesnt even show that its going into manual. Could this be something electrical that causing my shifting problem?

Hi, I have a 1995 Mitsubishi Galant automatic...it seems to only drive in high gear, like it is not shifting. When you put the car in drive it seems to start from a high gear and not change out. Was told that the park/neutral switch is bad, would this cause the car not to shift? (shifter is between the seats, and it will go into drive without the key) must be a bad p/n switch...but, if I put the money in a new one will the trans. start changing like it should? Thanks for your help! Wanda

I have a 2000 chevrolet blazer that has a very odd shifting problem. When I start the vehicle up it appears as if drive and third are burnt out. But when I start moving I manually shift into third or drive and it works fine, even after coming to complete stops. But when I take it out of drive or third it refuses to work again unless i move up from second. Can a solenoid cause this? Im not sure but I always thought if a solenoid was gone it would affect the whole transmission? and also wouldnt al
