Artie first check the fluid level with the trans warm Idleing in neutral if it is low top it up with only hyundai trans fluid if this also if the fluid has a strong aroma to it, the fluid should be replaced although this is a sign of a failure in the trans and will be getting close to the time where it needs to be replaced

I have a 97 grand voyager that want go into any gear, its a automatic

The first thing to check is auto trans fluid levels, if you experienced a sudden failure, look for leaks where you park, should be obvious given the sudden failure. I had similar slow leak, then all of a sudden trans would not go into gear, just slipped, so does your engine rev up when you push on gas? Have you ever serviced trans., most believe manufacturers recommendation which often says lifetime, but never define whose lifetime. lol Crazy, I know, but having a BMW it says lifetime, but think about it, service is the highest income producer for dealers, so simply put, don't believe manufacturers, servicing auto trans. is essential if you like to keep your vehicles for more than 100K miles.

1999 Pontiac Grand Prix GTP. Mileage 132000. 1 to 2 shift normal. Trans. will not upshift into 3rd. gear, goes to 4th. It will downshif to 3rd. from 4th. When the trans. get hot from stop and go...

If tranny fluid is clear and at normal level, then the issue is with the transmission - it is getting ready to go sayonara.

Better get that fix before you get stranded.

Not shifting into gear properly

If the trans. hasn't been serviced every 30,000 miles and it has over 100,000 miles on it, it's problem is normal wear and tear. The only way to fix it right to rebuild it. You can add Lucas trans. additive to it. It worked miracles in my ford truck. Use two bottles.It will free up the valves and seals to buy you some time.

1994 F350 transmission intermittent problem

I had the same problem in my 96 f-350. The transmission has slipped recording a slip code in the transmission. You can pull the codes and get it. I shifts into a safe mode that increases the pressure inside your transmission as part od a fail safe. Plain and simple, you have to have the tranny rebuilt.

My automatic focus sometimes will not go into gear properly

This may be caused by fluid starvation from a plugged trans filter, also a shift solenoid inside the trans may be sticking, I would recommend u change the trans fluid and filter (required at 60,000 miles), also go to a Kragen auto or any chain parts store like it and ask to have a code test run on the powertrain control module , it is free.
