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.

I have a 2002 santa fe auto 4 speed it well all way to 4th gear after about 10 miles itwill dropin to 3rd gear and lock in and stay in 3rd til you turn it off. Can you help.


Your transmission probably has electric solenoids controlling the various gears. You need to have them checked out for proper operation especially the one responsible for your 4th gear..

My 2003 Santa Fe will not stay in 5th gear! I have a new clutch!!! What's up??


This is not a clutch problem this is a worn part in the transmission causing this, have the transmission removed and torn down and inspected to see what is worn out and affecting the 5th gear.

How do turn off overdrive on a 2001 hyundai santa fe if its not on the gear stick?


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

My 2005 Hyundai Santa Fe shifts really hard from 2nd to 3rd, almost as though the transmission slips


If there is no check engine light on - check the transmission fluid by pulling out the dip stick (check the level and smell the fluid if it smells burnt, there is an internal problem with the transmission) if all this is ok then the problem may be one of the speed sensos or (pulse generators)
