    Idle varies between 1500 and 4000 rpm. Change the throttle position sensor. No difference. Disconnected the idle air control valve and the idle speed dropped to 'normal', but the engine runs rough. Cleaned the iacv, but no difference.

    My car when it's turned on it revs really high but when I put on my A/C not so much. But I can't put in neutral because it revs up to 4 or 5 rpms

Weeeeiiirrdddd. i have a 2001 hyundia elentra gls, and my third cylinder is misfiring as well. my car also revs constantly on idle and in between shifting. it will flutter between 2-3000 or it will just stay at 5000. i replaced my plugs and wires to no fix with my cylinder. autozone also told me that it sounds like my throttle position sensor needs replaced, but every part they try to sell me will not fit and they swear up and down this is the right part...

I have a hyundai elantra 2001 and the rpm goes up high when I turn on the car. It also stays high while driving at some point it will go down and the car jerks into another gear.....I have replaced the throttle position sensor, input/output speed sensor, the IAC, checked the valcum holes for any leaks and I'm still having this problem. The check engine light stays on all the time because of this on going problem. Please help I've done spent a lot of money and my problem still is not fixed.

Its the intake manifold gasket. I have an 01 elentra that did the same thing and I replaced that and now it runs perfect.

I would suspect you have a short in the wiring to the transmission or the shift solenoid inside the ****** is shorted. Only way to know for sure is to get the wiring diagrams and trace down and inspect all the wiring that the fuse powers.

Hyundai elantra periodically will shift hard from second to third gear and then will not shift into overdrive. the check engine light will come on. if i shut off the engine and restart it will shift...


I'm not that user, but go to Autozone and have them scan your computer for the code to your check engine light. It will point you to which sensor to replace, as this is likely your culprit. There are two speed sensors which are critical to transmission shifting on this car. The one I'm familiar with is on the passenger drive axle, but when mine went out (I have a 2001 Elantra as well) I didn't have any of these issues you describe. I don't know where the other sensor is, but that's where I'd suggest starting. Get it fixed quickly though, the web-boards I've read warn that these symptoms can be pretty ******* this little transmission. Good luck!

2001 Jetta won't shift into high gear/


In 2001 the "Check Engine" light might give information about what's going on with the transmission. You may want to have it checked by a shop before the transmission decides to die. It might be a simple fix.

Do I change water pump when having timing belt changed


I would go to auto zone and get a diagram and the timing belt and do it yourself and the water pump (no it does not have to be changed everytime the timing belt is changed but if the car has over 60,000miles then it is best to change them both) it is not that hard especially if the car is not out of time just make sure you disconnect the negative side of the battery

Transmission on my 2001 Hyundai Elantra GLS


your shifts correctly, as your driving it downshifts and stay stuck at that gear when u stop and try to take off but intell u turn off your car and restart it it shifts correctly intell a few mins later. i am thinking that is a speed sensor (out signal problem) mounted on top of your transmission next to the battery tray, you will see couple of cable linkages next to it ...
