Question about 1998 Hyundai Elantra
My car is Lantra NOT Elantra. Reverse gear barely works in my 1998 1.8l Lantra, which seems odd with automatic transmission. Reverse only works if I rev very hard, and it goes as if the brake is on (and sometimes won't go at all). If I stop revving, its as if the brake has been suddenly applied.
Could this be a links/bands problem or soemthing else? Am I likely to need to replace entire transmission?
You have a bad O-ring seal in the valve body of your transmission. The reason you barely move when you rev high, is because the trans fluid isnt going to the correct part of the valve body due to the bad seal. This should be a repair you can do yourself if you have any mechanical experience, OR a transmission shop may be able to rebuild the valve body for you.
