My automatic transmission seems to be having problems shifting... thats the only way to think of for me to put it.
When I have the OD on(normal driving conditions) the car will shift from first to second, no problem. Second to third the car jerks, almost like if I were driving a manual transmission and didn't quite know how to shift yet. But once i get the car going about 30-40 mph the RPM guage goes crazy.... it revs up to 5000 rpms plus and sounds like I dropped the car into neutral and kept gassing it.
then when the car is driving with the OD off, shift from one to two is ok,second to third is the same as before, and third to fourth is damn near non-existent, the rpm guage stays at about 3000 and the engine sounds strained.
I did some research and found a consumer guide report that said if this is what your car is doing, change the pulse generator..... which mind you is damn near impossible to find if you live in BFE... so I changed it and it's still doing the same thing

This is bad news either way, whether you have a manual or automatic transmission. The transmission is slipping if it an automatic or your clutch is worn out if it is a manual transmission.
Assuming you have an automatic, is may be the transmission is slipping because the transmission is not quickly shifting gears.
If you transmission shifts using hydraulic valves, there may be hope. You can add a can of SeaFoam transmission oil or similar product that helps stuck valves move. If you have solenoids used to shift the transmission based on motor RPM and pressure sensors, you need to go to a transmission shop to run more complicated tests. In that case, go to someone who is familiar with your vehicle model.
removing excess oil will be a good start to see if you have a problem. Excess oil causes over heating of the oil and over pressure in the tranny or frothing of the oil which lowers operating pressures in the tranny
the rpm's can vary from car to car , it all depends on the gearing in the transmission and ratios, 4.0 does seem high for a V6 the easiest thing would to be have your transmission serviced , on this car you need to get the Idle Air Control checked, In all the forums Ive read on this car , that seems to be whats wrong when the RPM's seem to high, also if you have the automatic trans and an electronic manual shifting mode does it do the same thing when you have it in the manual mode? there has been lots of discussion also on the MAP sensor,, I would suggest you have the OBD codes read to see if its listing any trouble codes within the computer that can help with locating your answers, once you get those codes if you post the results here, people will help you and explain what they mean, If you reply to this feed by replying, I will look them up for you
the trans computer has seen a problem possible a bad sensor, or an internal problem, and puts it into a safe mode, or limp home mode , it wont shift , it will stay in 3rd gear, this way this reduces the possibility of further damage trans damage, when you turn the ignition off and back on it resets the tcm, my advice is to take it to your local dealer, they can diag your trans as they know the product, i dont advise pep boys, or discount auto parts.
the right direction is to have the fault codes read first
they will reveal a code that refers to TR sensor , VSS sensor or TCM
indicates a problem servo/s or solenoids
If the oil has not been changed in the last 60,000miles then that would be a good option to do after the fault codes reading
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 : )
