Question about Hyundai Excel

Open Question

99 hyundai excel automatic, serviced the auto gearbox with new filter and used about 4 liters of ATF SP-III. Drives ok for first 10 mins but when engine warm, the auto gearbox goes into limp mode and drives like pulling a big truck, no low gear from take off and stays in second or third gear when cruising at 80kph. What could have gone wrong? The car was ok before the transmission service even with very dirty looking oil in it. The car service manual says 6.7 liters of ATF for a complete fill but I only used up more or less about 4 liters? Are there still about 2 liters inside the gearbox, radiator and torque converter? How do you fill them with clean ATF?

The fluid for your car is the new Dexron 6, this replaced Dexron 3 (D111), this is the best fluid for the trans, Toyota ATF-WS (World Standard) Automatic Transmission Fluid used in certain 2004-2008 vehicles is NOT compatible with Toyota T-IV or Dexron ATF

SOURCE: hyundai excel 1996 automatic will engage reverse

It appears you have a Forward Clutch FAILURE. Replace the trans after you get it diagnosed and verified by a professional technician. By the way, do you have a Check Engine light? If so, what is the diagnostic code? The dealership can scan the system and find any codes which may have been stored in the TCM (Transmission Control Module). If there were any 'Incorrect Gear Ratio" codes, it's most probably the trans itself.

I don't know what you got going there, but most people would have shot that truck in the head along time ago, you must a lot of patience. 1, 10 to 12 liters is for a complete rebuild, you are only dumping out none, you should not have to ad any oil. Just check it with the dipstick.2 you have 2 oil coolers in the line, how did you manage that? in out in out? 3, Get the thing up there in line with the engine, move it in close, line up the bolt holes, get a couple bolts started, keep the tranny supported, so far so good, put in a cross member while it is still loose, don't tighten anything up yet, you are still aligning, get the flywheel spun around till a bolt lines up, remove 3 or 4 spark plugs and it will spin easier, put in bolt, then spin it around again to the next bolt and put it in, get all of them in before tightening them up, Now you can start tightening up all your bolts, cross members, drive shafts, hook up he shifter, electrics, speedometer, etc. You don't want any oil leaks, do not take out the torque converter, you will upset the seal. If it doesn't start, your neutral safety switch is out of align. You will have to loosen it up and move it just a fraction till the starter clicks on. Don't forget the spark plugs! Hope this helps.

You can drain and fill your trans. It will take 2.5 -3.0 quarts of DEX III trans fluid....goes in the fill tube. Or you can get said transmission flushed which changes all fluid including torque converter.....about 15 quarts. Way more thorough.

Change auto-tranny fluid


The best method is called 'Fluid Exchange" and is accomplised by a fluid transfer machine (very expensive). Call/go by your nearest Hyundai dealership. They can do it for you. If you want to do it yourself, you'll need the Hyundai specific fluid called 'SP III' (SP -w/3 I's) If you don't have this fluid exchange machine, best you have the technicians at the dealership do it. Here's the problem, you can't drain more than 3 quarts by draining the pan (Trans has approx 7 qt system). The majority of the fluid is in the torque converter (which does not drain)... that's why it's a fluid exchange process.
