Question about 1997 Hyundai Accent

1 Answer

1997 Accent trans. trouble after torque convertor replacement.

I had the torque convertor changed on my daughter in-law's 1997 accent beause of a bad ring gear. The mechanic supposedly drained and replaced the fluid after installation. The car will not go into overdrive, and after it warms up, it will not go into first gear. The mechanic says its not his fault? When I got the car home I drained the fluid, dropped the pan, and replaced the filter. I only got one quart of fluid from trans. The book says I should have gotten 3-1/2 to 4 quarts. I replaced the pan and added 4qts. The transmission acts the same way. What do you think the problem is?

Okay. there could be a couple of problems with your transmission.
1). it's quite possible that the clutch discs inside of your transmission have finally burned out. Hyundai has been known for making faulty transmissions for the accent for the first generation models.
2). if the car doesn't go in first gear, try driving it in normal mode and not economy. the accent purposely pulls in second gear in economy mode, when warmed up, in order to get into the high 30 mpgs.
3). faulty shift control solenoid. These have also been known to be defective with the first generation accent (1995-1999).
4). Your transmission fluid leaked out, prior to the mechanic fixing it, and the high heat building up in the transmission as well as the low amount of fluid in the transmission helped to burn it out.
for options 1 and 4, you wont know the actual problem unless you pull the transmission out and examine all of the clutch discs.
hope this helps...

Hi i have a 99 hyundai accent and my transmission went out and i couldnt find one but then i found one but it came out of 94 accent and it was an identical match except the wirung and know i cant figure...


well you have a problem and that is that your 99 accent is whats called an OBDII car. the transmission is an OBDI. there are major differences in the electrics that will prevent you from ever having it work properly. you see OBDII requires that certain trans functions be monitored by the computer for emmisions related problems [assuming your in the U.S.A. or a country with similar laws] you may be able to get it to work but the check engine light will constantly be on and the trans will never function properly.i hate to say it but your way better off getting the right one. as a side note its a good chance that a kia rio trans will work they share a great many parts with one another.

Need to know how to check the timing for 1997 Hyundai Accent Gt!


Not sure why he would tell you the engine has to be taken out to set the timing. If he means the timing belt is wore out and needs to be changed, you can change the belt without pulling the engine. The engine cant be timed. It is set automatically.
