2003 Tiburon 6 spd clutch replacement now tranny won't respond

I just finished changing the clutch in my 03 tiburon. The dual mass flywheel is a horrible design. Everything is back together. The clutch is working correctly. You can see in the bell housing when the pedal is pushed the forks pull the bearing and disengage the clutch, but the tranny is acting like it is always in neutral. I go through 1-6 and reverse and they all act like neutral. I'm at a loss. There has to be something not correct in the gearbox. Please help.

Possibility, you may have intalled the clutch disk backwards.... if so, the disk hub is torqued against the crankshaft hub preventing engagement of the clutch. 2003 TIBUORN DUAL MASS FLYWHEEL AND CLUTCH DISC ASSEMBLY INSTALLATION PROCEDURE DESCRIPTION: The 2003 MY 2.7L Tiburon vehicle equipped with the 6-speed manual transaxle employs a dual mass flywheel system. The 2003 Tiburon Shop Manual does not show the clutch disc assembly with the dual mass flywheel. This bulletin provides information about how to assemble these components. NOTE Although it is possible to assemble the clutch disc with either side facing the flywheel surface, only the assembly of these two parts shown in this bulletin is correct.

  1. Attach the dual mass flywheel to the engine crankshaft assembly.
  2. Identify the clutch disc flange side and the collar side as shown. 2003 Tiburon 6 spd clutch replacement now tranny w - 0240025a.gif

you forgot to put the crank sensor back on, or you broke it, or you forgot to hook it back up, or you pinched the harness when you tightened the trans. to the block.

Problems selecting gears on a hyundia coupe. it seems more difficult when car is cold

I assume you're referring to a standard transmission (clutch pedal w/manual shifter)? Some of the most common problems w/this powertrain component are
1. low fluid level in the clutch master cylinder
2. Worn clutch disk and or dual mass flywheel.
3. leaky/worn clutch slave cylinder.

Least common

1. worn sychronizers inside the trans
2. worn/beveled cones-to-primary (or) primary synchronizer cone to secondary synchronizers. Some transmissions were designed with dual synchronizers.

Best advice is to have a qualified/certified Hyundai Service Technician properly diagnose the drivability issue you're having.
