Question about 2001 Hyundai Accent

1 Answer

Transmission slipping I have about 65,000 miles on my accent and the transmission is not properly shifting from 2nd into 3rd gear. The rpms about red line before it shifts sometimes. Seems to be an intermittent problem. I had the transmission serviced and fluid changed but the problem persists. any ideas as to what is wrong or suggestions? any idea what kind of transmission work I need? thanks

    I have a 2002 hyundai accent 1.6L auto with overdrive, when im driving the card in 4th gear around 40-55 mph, the car downshifts randomly, and usually after the second downshift it doesnt shift back into 4th, and the check engine light comes on and the transmission stays in 3rd gear until i shut the car off again.  ive gotten the codes for this problem, and states transmission incorrect ratio 4th, gear, and says to check the tcm.  So could this be caused by the computer, or possibly in the transmission itself, i was thinking maybe a flush and getting it cleaned professionally if maybe there was gunk clogged in the 4th gear. any ideas?

    Dclev.....I have the same thing going on with my 02 accent. Shifting from 18mph to 23 mph is non exisitent. The motor just races until 24 mph then catches a gear. Korean junk!!!!

    You mean like convert the engine to manual?, wouldnt that involve even more money than getting it rebuilt, Im going to take the car into the transmission shop to verify what will need to be done to fix the problem.  I do understand that manual transmissions offer less problems than the complex automatic transmissions.  And are cheaper to fix :)  (but im assuming a rebuilt will be neccessary for my problem).


    Ive taken the car to the place where my extended warranty is covered by, and ive taken it there 3 times, the first time they said nothing was wrong, so they took it to hyundai, they said nothing was wrong so i had to pay $90 for diagnostics just for them to DRIVE my car around, and then i took it the second time when the engine light was on and they received that code that i typed above p0734, and they said it was a grounding  problem with the battery and paid $140, which these things were NOT covered under my warranty.  So the $140 charge was to replace my battery cables, to fix the grounding problem, and 2 days later same problem.  I know for a fact that a rebuild is needed, and is probably not covered on my warranty, because this car place just keeps jacking with me, and we got nowhere until now when im really starting to have problems. And if i take it in thats just time without my car which being im a full time student and i work so my car is needed.  So im just taking it to a different place where i will pay out of pocket just to fix this problem because i cant rely on my warranty.  For anything.

Shift module


That transmission is one that has been used for years in Dodge and Plymouth vans. Do you know when the last time was that the fluid was flushed out and replaced? It's pretty important that it be done every 90K miles.......have it checked out.

Transmission will stay in 2nd gear


Hi!!

When was the last time you service the tranny?

Fluid should be topped to level, pinkish in color and no burnt smell.

This happened two months ago; my cousin's Intrigue was slipping on 2nd n 3rd when it reached 2000 rpms. and some times when trying to take off suddenly, Have to released the gas a little and you could feel it engaging again.

Solution: Changed Transmission fluid and filter and added one bottle of RISLONE Transmission Stop Slip and Leak Repair I got at AutoZone ($10), It stopped the slipping after driving the car a couple of miles, you can actually feel more traccion in all gears and my cousin says is even giving more miles X gallon. He drives the car about 80 miles a day and is been over two months since. It may sound like a commercial ad but that stuff works great!!!

Rate this answer and keep me posted!! Good Luck!!

Transmission flares


NO: 43-37
DATE: 2-25-2003
MODEL: MY 2001-2002 S60, V70, V70 XC
SUBJECT: Shift Quality Issues due to B4 Servo Cover Failure, 2-3 upshift harshness or flare
CHASSIS: These chassis breaks are approximate:
S60: 062000-152000
V70: 116000-230000
V70 XC: 036000-067100
TRANSMISSION SERIAL NUMBER: The first 3 digits of the serial number on the affected transmissions will be between 01C (March 2001) and 01L (December 2001).
DESCRIPTION:
In the AW 55-50, brake number four (B4), is only applied in 3rd gear. The B4 is applied by a piston, which is covered by an aluminum cap. This cap has a steel washer crimped to its inside surface, and a rubber cushion that sits between the cover and the washer.
If this washer breaks free from the crimps it will become concaved because of the B4 piston return spring pressure.
This loose washer can cause: - " 2-3 upshift flare / slip - " Harsh 2-3 upshifts - " 3-4 upshift flare / slip - " Harsh 4-3 downshifts
Replacing the broken B4 cover with a new one (PN 30651771) will remedy these symptoms.
