Hyundai santa fe not shifting properly

My 2001 Santa Fe 2.7 4x4 automatic will rev high when you take off sometimes and just dump into 3rd gear and stay in 3rd gear but when you stop and shut it off , and restart and continue on it does fine until a couple of days. Can anyone give me any advice? The computer device says speed sensor.

    I have a 2001 Santa Fe 2wd 2.7 and I am having the same problem. I had a diagnostic reading and it gave me a couple of codes.  One was to replace the output speed sensor, and the other was a dealer code that only said there is a problem that needs to be gotten off of the trans control module.  Only the dealer can diagnose that code.  I got the output speed sensor replaced for like 70.00.  That did not fix my problem.  I have read that I should also replace the input speed sensor, flush the trans, and change the trans filters (there is an internal and an external).  My dealer charges 90 just for a diagnostic so I didnt want to go there, but I might do that before i spend 300 on replacing the two filters and getting the flush.

    I have the exact same problem. I was read the exact same codes. I have not had it fixed yet. This all started without warning a week ago.

    I have the same Santa Fe as you Frankie. Driving at 100 kph when it would just drop down to third and stay there So I took it to the local Hyundai workshop and they said the same the input speed sonsor in the gearbox.So they changed it and it cured the fault for 3 months.The exact fault came back,this time it was the output speed sensor It cured the fault, but I was $900 lighter.So if you can buy the sensors and install them your self you would save alot The sensors are situated on the outside of the gearbox and screw into it.Good luck Frankie

SOURCE: need instructions on removing hyundai santa fe 01 fan belt ac

its your serpentine belt (thats what its called) and you will need a 3/8 ratchet and then find the belt tensioner. The tensioner has a spot where you need to put the ratchet into and pull or push depending on whatever way and that will releive the pressure off the belt so you can take it off.

SOURCE: Hyundai Santa Fe 2005 won't shift into first gear

Most likely the o-ring seal between the torque converter and the transmission is going bad. Get that transmission rebuilt pronto before serious damage is done! But first, have a mechanic drop the transmission pan and look for signs of a very thin silvery film coating the inside of the pan. If found, then the transmission definitely will have to be rebuilt, and the torque converter will also have to be replaced since embedded metallic particles in the old torque converter will eventually come loose, due to wear of the clutch plates within the torque converter, and eat up the rebuilt transmission. Now, here is the deal once the transmission has been rebuilt:

Change the transmission fluid and filter once a year -- no matter what! If you do this, then you should never have any more problems with the transmission.

If you live in the US, take it to qany Auto Zone store and thy will read the codes off for you, I would suspect any right thinking competitor would do the same, check if you don't have one near by.

Hope this is of some help.

SOURCE: PROGRAM KEYFOB FOR HYUNDAI SANTA FE

This is from the factory service manual of your car:
There is no onboard programming procedure for this vehicle. This vehicle requires special equipment be connected to the vehicle to program the keyless remote. Translation you need the dealer to do this.

My Hyundai Santa fee 2003 2.7L stays in D and does not change gears as I excelerated . Climbing a hill it goes up slow as the gear remains in D position .


As you travel down the road does it shift in other gear speed of just stays in that one gear and revs high.Check the fluid condition. Santa Fe uses a VSS to change gear as the RPM increases As you put the vehicle in drive it should gear select for you. The reason I want you to check fluid condition is to make sure the transmission has not failed.The fluid should not be dark like getting black.

Does your gearshift have four gear positions? If it does, then 4th gear is overdrive. To leave overdrive, simply shift to 3rd gear.

Car will not shift out of 1st gear


Did the 'Check Engine' Light come ON? Whenever the 'CHECK ENGINE' light comes on, the ECU (Engine Control Unit) sets a Diagnostic Trouble Code (DTC). These codes identify the particular engine management system which caused the light to come on.
You'll need to use/find an OBDII (On-Board Diagnostic) Scanner to retrieve any code which have been stored in the ECU computer. Afterward, we might be able to help you DIAGNOSE and perhaps eventually fix the problem.
