Hyndai elantra 2003 what happens if you overflorw

Drain some out !! And re-fill it..

Over fill will blow out seals & gaskits and causemajor leaks..

When you are filling it.. The car should be running in park.. The dipstick messures in pints - not quarts..

Rate well ;o)

Tranmission failsafe program problem

im sorry to say but it is kinda common for the trans to go out and need replaced on the e-39, you would first want to have it scanned and see if there is anything the dealership or an approved independant shop can do for you based on the codes, good luck
