2001 Hyundai Tiburon automatic transmission problem

I have had my tiburon for 5 years now and have never had any transmission problems and then the other the day it was left out in below freezing weather and the battery died. Well i charged the battery and the car started fine and then when i tried to drive the car it started out fine and then when it shifted into 3rd it kind of jerked and then when it tried to shift into 4th it all the sudden downshifted and went from 45mph to like 5mph. I let the car run for about 30-40 min and then checked the transmission fluid and it was fine, so after it was warmed up i tried to drive it again and it did the same thing-downshifting. I have no idea what could be wrong it was perfectly fine i drive my car everyday and then all the sudden when it got below freezing this happened. Any information will help, thank you

    Transmission won't shift into 4th gear sometimes, and sometimes it will down shift at 45 mph.

Okay, I baught an 01' tiburon last march. When I first had trouble with the tranny it wouldnt shift into fourth and no it wasnt the overdrive button. Then it started downshiftling like what your experiencing then I lost reverse. Ammco rebuilt the tranny. I would take it to them, they will inspect it for free. You may just need a tran fluid flush. You should know that in the automatics the tranny is the weakest part of the car. The engines are great, just everything around them seems to fall apart after 120,000 miles.
Ammco offers a free inspection service. However Just from experience - if you need a new auto tranny it is cheaper to buy one already rebuilt (with warrantee) and pay to have it installed than to rebuild the one you have.
Cheers to hyundai challenge : )

I am having the same issue with my 99 Tiburon, which has run great until now. I had the trans flushed, but it still seems to be doing the same thing. I have found that there is an automatic trans fluid temperature sensor that goes bad, and when it gets cold, it tells the trans that it is REALLY cold. I am having trouble trying to find out exactly where that sensor is located, but i have found a great article with the part number here: http://www.transmissiondigest.com/tech/TD200604/ShiftPointers/Shift%20Pointers%20HTML.htm
Hope that helps!

I want to change my 6 speed transmission to automatic how much trouble is it in a 2003 hyundai tiburon


It would be a fairly difficult project. You'ld need to change trans mount, different driveshaft, shifter & linkage, add a torque converter, new radiator w/trans cooler built in lower section, cooler lines. On top of all that, Hyundai automatic transmissions are very unreliable.

My automatic vehicle wont change gears


Sounds like the transmission is in fail safe mode. This occurs when there is a problem in your transmission. You will have to get the vehicle scanned for trouble codes.

To my knowledge, there is NOT. You'd have to swap out the entire Powertrain (a later MY 2.7 V6) and wire harness and PCM (Powertrain Control Module).
