For the 2000 elantra I checked the Autozone website, don't know if you have one near where you live. However, what happens a lot of times is the speed sensors go out on the transmissions. If it is not funcioning properly the transmission can't funtion properly either. They listed an input sensor and an output sensor so I can't be 100% if you indeed have both and if you do which one might be bad. You may want to have those checked first and go from there. I have had several vehicles that I was almost certain the entire transmission was going to be bad and it ended up just being the transmission speed sensor. Hope this helps.....

SOURCE: Isuzu Trooper 1997. Automatic Transmission holds gears too long.

Their is a power and normal drive in trooper's power for pulling a trailer and normal for normal driving. The power drive only changes gear at higher R.P.M. Their is a switch on the plastic cover under the handbrake with p & n their is a light in the dash as well. If you are not aware of this switch then just needs switching over if you are aware of it then its probably the fuse to activate it or a wiring problem with it, Cheers

Testimonial: "I know the switch. But nothing changes when I switch back and forth. No light on the dashboard either. I don't know if it is in normal or power."

SOURCE: Automatic Transmission shifts late and rough after warm

If it has over 60000 miles it may need a transmission service, which includes a filter and fluid change, fluid may look fine but if filter is clogged and not picking up fluid fast enough when u give it gas the pump spins faster and forces fluid thru to shift, more fluid is needed to shift into higher gear.than to drive

Sometimes when the engine doesn't run smooth it causes the trans to seem like its shifting hard.

Is it normal for the automatic transmission on a 1996 Z3 to need to warm up before it shifts smoothly?


No, this is a situation that involves one or more of the shift solenoids that are inside the pan. These shift solenoids are malfunctioning at this time and, i recommend inspecting the transmission asap for faulty solenoids.

It could be lash in the differential which is normal, but it could also be a loose u-joint in the driveshaft. Check the rear driveshaft u-joints.

When was the last time you had your oil changed? That could be the problem. Change oil so the shifting smoothens itself out. If that doesn't work, have a mechanic take a look at the clutch to root out the problem.
