Question about 2001 Hyundai Accent
I have a 2001 accent with 101,056 miles. The transmission started acting up like the filter was stopped up. I changed the filter and the problem is still there.
When you get in to drive the car sometimes it acts up and sometimes it is fine.
The car just slams or jerks into gear. When in gear it can’t make its mind up which gear it need to be in. ( when the car should be in 3 its still in 1)
Could the transmission sensor help the problem
There was no sign of any gears stripped.
Please let me know what you think
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.

Yes, it's probably the transmission sensor.
It's worth getting second opinions because a lot of inexpensive little parts can go wrong and make it look like you need a whole new transmission.
For example, it could be the oxygen sensor. If it can't read the exhaust correctly, then it gives bad info to the engine's computer chip and screws everything up.
If you have an AutoZone nearby (or a friendly mechanic) they can read the "check engine" codes. That will help narrow it down.
Good luck! I hope it's an easy fix.
