Re: 2001 accent transmission problem
If you have a check light on then of course that would be your best bet to go to Autozone or elsewhere and have them pull the codes for you to try and give you a clear understanding. If the light is not on but the car just does like you are indicating sometimes, then in almost all certainty it is the transmission speed sensor. They are not all that expensive (I had a Kia before and I believe it was around $30). And they are not all that difficult to change out. engine-light-help.com gives some information on speed sensors and some checks you can do. Hope this helps.

You need to flush your radiator and coolant system out. Change your transmission fluid and filter. It wouldn't hurt to change your spark plugs and wires, but this is usually 60,000-70,000 miles. Check all your fluids. Grease all your axle points as well. Check your wheel alignment.
It is a proprietary Hyundai transmission fluid. Don't use anything other than the Hyundai stuff. This fluid has superb lubrication properties, but it breaks down much quicker than the specified 30,000 mile fluid change intervals. I highly recommend having both the fluid and filter changed once a year or once every 15,000 to 20,000 miles.
the light is probably sending an OIL Pressure drop warning ---there is a rarity however
an oil filter may be improperly installed or the OIL Pressure connection on the oil pressure
sending unit --usually next to the filter --is loose or corroded or the oil pressure sending unit may
be going bad ---on a 2001 it is conceivable
otherwise you have an internal oil pressure leak --crank or cam bearings --bad o ringy thingy somewhere or the oil pump --may be experiencing problem too or the pick up screen in the oil pan
is somwhat clogged ---for a clog --try what's called SEAFOAM in the oil ---the stuff actually works
like it says on the can --about 8 bucks --drive for a week --say 500 miles worth and change the oil filter again --just the filter ---either way OIL Pressure is nothing to ignore ---you need to fix that
asap depending on the problem source!!!
I hope this helps
