Question about 2001 Hyundai Santa Fe

My 2001 hyundai Santa fe has problems going into 3rd gear.

I talk to a mechanic and he said I should check the transmission (its manual) gear oil. Where is that located? And how difficult is it to do?

Hyundai santa fe 2001 clunked in reverse a few times then driving along then know gears at all just reved up and went no where its a auto


Ok I guess after re reading the problem you are saying the transmission now doesn't move the car, check the transmission fluid, if it is showing on the dipstick then you have a failed transmission, any transmission repair shop will do a preliminary inspections of the problem and confirm this, inmost cases at no cost.

Hyundai Santa Fe 2005 won't shift into first gear


Most likely the o-ring seal between the torque converter and the transmission is going bad. Get that transmission rebuilt pronto before serious damage is done! But first, have a mechanic drop the transmission pan and look for signs of a very thin silvery film coating the inside of the pan. If found, then the transmission definitely will have to be rebuilt, and the torque converter will also have to be replaced since embedded metallic particles in the old torque converter will eventually come loose, due to wear of the clutch plates within the torque converter, and eat up the rebuilt transmission. Now, here is the deal once the transmission has been rebuilt:

Change the transmission fluid and filter once a year -- no matter what! If you do this, then you should never have any more problems with the transmission.
