Hyundai Repair / Hyundai 94 automatic transmission


HT – 4/5/2007


My 94 Hyundai Excel automatic works ok and shifts normally for the first 20 miles or less if the is hot. After the transmission up, it does not want to shift 3rd gear. As it gets warmer, it not want to shift into

The tranmission oil is not burned and is in good as is the filter. There is no smoke. No sounds, no slippage, no racing or symptoms.

Since the transmission normally without any problems for the 20 miles or about a half until it gets warmed up and then, it is not having any unusual or symptoms other than not into 3rd and if driven long has not wanted to go into 2nd gear. I am touble believing that the is internal to the transmission rather a sensor or linkage or other Can you shed some light on the problem?

The car is at the transmission shop and seem very unconvincing as to they have checked than the fluid and seem to be grasping at a reason to open up and down the transmission for a lot of money providing any speculation on what is the problem. The fact that the works perfect until it warm and no evidence of problem the fluid and no sounds or other makes me uneasy that the is in the transmission as opposed to something a sensor, etc.

I just to get another opinion to see if my concerns are I would hate to spend or more just to have the torn apart when less invasive might be the

If the transmission was grinding, smoking, oil, leaking or slipping, I understand the need to go to such but the transmission shop was vague and not really give me a valid on what they thought the might be or what efforts made to check it so far other to look at the oil. Are my concerns or am I right on feeling like are trying to dig into my pockets a valid reason? I am almost to go get the car and take it somewhere else but I advice ASAP before I

ANSWER: I’m a little about what you say is occurring. You say once the problems occur, the won’t shift into or second and third. But you also say the transmission doesn’t slip nor the engine race. So, what interested in is what happens the transmission doesn’t go into 2nd or 3rd gear.

Does it shift 2nd to 4th? 1st to 4th? Does it act it’s in neutral?

Most of the with the transmission in your were with the seals, and occurred because of excessive of the machined surfaces. In most transmission overhaul or replacement is If you’ve determined that’s will be required for repair, your local Hyundai and price a transmission replacement.

sells the remanufactured transmissions to the fairly cheaply, so you can get a factory in many cases for a price what an overhaul at a competing will cost.

Also, not convinced you need an overhaul, This is for two reasons. First, I fully understand your Second, there is no indication the repair facility checked the trouble codes.

Checking the trouble codes is an important of diagnosing nearly every with an electronically controlled such as you have in your

QUESTION: You were absolutely Thank you. The transmission was not telling the truth.

They gung ho to tear it down and it without providing any technical for doing so (and who knows the actual final price be). Before we went to the I discovered the Hyundai mfr has a free where you can login and your car description and look up any or problem on any year and model.

You can detailed technical information on any or part and obtain detailed symptom and part information instructions and diagrams on how to replace components. The level of detail on the website is more extensive any car repair manual we have seen. They also info on diagnostic codes and how to them as well as indepth for car owners, test technicians, and repair shops.

It is also for informing owners so they can ask the questions at the repair shops and the diagnostic code results.

researching the Hyundai technical I spoke with the transmission and was able to more intelligently them for specifics. I asked if had tested the sensors and ran thorough and they told me they So I asked if they had a print out of the and they said no, they wrote out the codes. so I asked for

They did not have them. So I them to specify exactly components they tested and any tests, sensors, linkage or diagnostics. and they were to provide an answer. They admitted that all they had was perform a drive test and at the transaxle oil. yet they this was enough to convince that the transmission needed to be down and rebuilt without any whatsoever. You were right!

That was enough for us, so we took the car (about 40 miles; 1 1/2 hours traffic). The transmission was perfect for the 35 miles but during the last 5, it not wanting to shift gears My husband was driving and said the only appears after the car was from driving. When he at traffic lights and then through the intersection and slowly speed, the automatic transmission did not to shift above the 2nd gear. No symptoms.

No noise, no smoke, no engine and the trans oil was good.

On the site, I found info on a oil temp sensor which if can cause the same type of our transmission has. Works when cool and begins not when warm with a temp sensor. It also some other cases the temp sensor can cause the TCM to the wrong signal to the pressure depending on the type of temp failure (high, open or on leads).

Since this sensor is only a $40 part and the diagrams show it is easy to under the transaxle oil pan, we we would replace it and change the oil and filter and see if this improves the The detailed instructions on the Hyundai also provide VOM tests we can use to some of the other sensors and on our own. If this doesn’t we can try your second suggestion of the replacement.

This will like a strange question, but is another way to obtain the Hyundai transmission other than the

Our local Hyundai dealer is crooked. They did an unforgivable on my car 5 years ago when it only a $268 fan replacement for the AC which shop had already diagnosed and out. But I went to the Dealer for a estimate, thinking genuine parts would be better.

The Hyundai dealer tore out the AC system without permission and providing the requested estimate and me it could not be put back together they had already disposed of it. after I was forced to comply, my car 10 days waiting for a replacement AC at a of nearly $2000 in addition to car fees I also incurred. enraged so many customers most people now go out of state or to distant metro area to buy

Since this dealer every Hyundai dealership in the and north TX area. is there way to get the Hyundai replacement transmission and Or some way to buy the replacement through method and have it installed by a party competitor? I’m not how this would work out a competitor shop.

Some are resistant to installing parts by the customer.

Although we can tackle a sensor and doing some VOM at home, we are not set up to swap transaxles. auto repair sources in area are few and far between.

Let me thank you for your help. If we had not pinned the transmission shop for details, we not have known they ran any diagnostics whatsoever. At least we are now informed and will be sure to the diagnostics before we jump in the for an expensive rebuild.

ANSWER: you can check for diagnostic trouble yourself. In the transaxle section of the manual on, it’ll a diagram of the diagnostic test You can connect an analog voltmeter and the trouble codes with the of the needle.

Second, don’t rush to the fluid temperature sensor. If I correctly, the operating strategy on car isn’t such that the will stay in a low gear if the temperature gets too high.

still not sure of your If the transmission is staying in second I’d think that the would be racing as you drove, but you say not the case. If you can, please to me whether the transmission just in second, acts like in neutral, or anything else you can of that will help me

Anyone can purchase a transmission the dealer and install it themselves, other shops. I’m that the dealers in your aren’t more honest.

out the diagnostic worksheet in TSB 05-40-005. I you won’t be able to do everything but you may be able to learn something the tests you can do.

Right now, thinking you may have a pulse issue, but again, until I a better understanding of exactly the symptoms are, I’m not of much of anything.

QUESTION: My said I described the symptoms (although it is my car, I have not it since this problem Let me start over again and him describe it step by step as I

Here is his description:

Everything on the was normal for the first 35 miles. we stopped at a traffic light and he he shifted into neutral stopped. When the light he shifted into drive. The from 1st to second was a harder normal shift.

2nd to 3rd and 3rd to 4th were As the engine reaches normal temperature and encounter multiple lights with it in drive, the 1st to 2nd a little bit harder on the shift. 2nd to 3rd longer and shifting 3rd to 4th disappears.

The car never shifts into 4th that.

If the tranmission is cooled for about a half hour or such as while you are shopping, the entire process starts from the beginning.

He said he something different today by into neutral at each light with his foot on the and then shifted back drive after the light He said this seemed to the distance he could drive the problems began to reoccur. He that heat appears to be the factor in when the transmission to start having the problems.

He that shifting into at the stop lights helped the onset of problems by reducing and stress on the transmission while the car was at the red light.

He also says normal highway driving the stop and go of traffic lights to forestall the onset of the problems. heat related.


The you describe further open up the that this may be a sensor of some sort, although I the temperature sensor is unlikely that typically won’t failsafe. Once the transmission module sees certain three times, it’ll put the in failsafe (third gear

You definitely want to start reading the diagnostic trouble using the voltmeter procedure listed above. Use the manual to the codes and follow up with here. I’ll advise on how to
