2007 Hyundai Santa Fe 2.2 Diesel, transmission went into neutral while driving.


Check transmission fluid level if low on fluid it will suck air and transmission forward clutch can not apply. If fluid is full and clean looking RED in color shift control solenoids are the problem and internal. BROWN and BLACK fluid indicates the forward clutch was slipping and now has no holding power for movement. this case the transmission needs reconditioning.

Automatic gearshift stuck in drive in kia 2007 rondo


Kia transmissions have become more complicated and parts such as the clutch, flywheel and torque converter can fail regardless of your driving habits. If your vehicle is beyond the warranty period I would still recommend your local Kia Dealer for repairs on this problem. A transmission problem is far to difficult to tackle for all but the most experienced mechanic.

Gearshift selector problem


The gear selector switch is either out of adjustment or it is bad. Loosen the two bolts holding the gear selector in place and turn it slightly to see if the display stops flashing. You will have to manually shift the transmission lever at the switch into neutral, and then turn the switch until the display says neutral. Tighten the bolts and then check all gears. It's also possible the shift cable could also be out of adjustment. Does the display change if you simply wiggle the gear selector lever?

Digital Transmission Range Sensor
The digital transmission range (TR) sensor is located on the outside of the transmission at the manual lever. The digital TR sensor completes the start circuit in Park and Neutral, the back-up lamp circuit in Reverse and the neutral sense circuit (4x4 only) in Neutral. The digital TR sensor also opens and closes a set of four switches that are monitored by the PCM to determine the position of the manual lever (P, R, N, D, 2, 1).

E40d trans will not shift into 3rd or 4th gear, only rev. 1+2


check or replace your thottle position sensor tps that trans needs to know where the throttle is to shift if it is bad it will do as you say wont shift to third
another telltale is it will act like it goes into lockup when shifting into reverse and stall the engine
