Based on what you write, I feel you have an automatic transmission problem, based on the fact that the transmission will not shift on its own into fourth gear. This could be a problem internally within the valve body and or clutch packs.
Remedy, or a good place to start with a diagnosis is a transmission service.

The person doing the service can inform you further.

If you would like to contact me again about this or other problems, feel free to do so.

How do turn off overdrive on a 2001 hyundai santa fe if its not on the gear stick?


Does your gearshift have four gear positions? If it does, then 4th gear is overdrive. To leave overdrive, simply shift to 3rd gear.

My 2.4 petrol 2001 santa fe is losing power on hills and is gradually getting worse. what could be wrong?


I would guess transmission or fuel pump. The question is when it loses power does it **** or like has a muffled backfire, if it does I would go with the fuel pump, may even need a tune up. I would tune it up first as that is the least expensive and go from there. Hope this helped tim
