Too many possible causes. Take the vehicle in to a Hyundai service center and get is properly and professionally diagnosed.... could be a simple wiring problem OR something more complex.

95 chevy 1500 pops and backfires doesn't want to shift into overdrive when cold when it does the truck runs real rough


Have you checked the fuel pressure under a load, low pressure will cause these symptoms. The test port is on the top of the engine in the fuel supply rail to the fuel injectors, the fuel pressure test port looks like a large tire fill valve. You will need a fuel pressure test gauge to do this test (about $20), the pressure must be watched while you accelerate, it should never go down on hard acceleration just up about 6-8 PSI

Do you drive with o/d on or off for normal driving when do you use it


You can drive with the switch on or off, it doesn't matter. Most vehicles default to the "on" position every time the engine is started, I'm not sure if yours does. The reason you can select the O/D off is because in some driving conditions the transmission will shift in and out of overdrive several times and it gets a little annoying. These conditions could be while driving up a grade at freeway speeds or driving at close to normal speeds but in heavy traffic. Every time the transmission shifts, it generates a little heat. Normally that heat is dissapated through the cooling system, but if the transmission keeps shifting in and out of overdrive, expecially in heavy traffic or climbing a grade, the cooling system may have a hard time keeping up. If you feel the transmission shifting in and out of overdrive more than usual, and you're in an abnormal traffic condition, go ahead and turn the O/D off. Just remember to turn it back on again when traffic returns to normal so you can get the best fuel mileage.

I just purchased it today. The RPM's goes up to 4


You'll want to doublecheck & make sure the Overdrive is turned on. That's a high rpm for 55, even high I believe for Interstate cruising at 65-70.

Possibly get back to the dealer immediately if it's not the Overdrive switch.

There are issues with some models that concern the RPM staying around 4,000 even at idle & under the right circumstances, a transmission won't shift as it should based upon engine & driving signals that the Trans computer uses to determine when to shift.

Check your fluid first & remember, Overdrive doesn't work until the fluid reaches a certain temperature.

good luck

Check transmission fluid after driving for a while, this could be down a bit. If 4 wheel drive, make sure it's in 2H.

Overdrive button


from the car manual:

Tum the overdrive switch on for good fuel
economy and smooth driving. If engine braking
is needed in the "D" range or if repeated
upshifting and downshifting between the 3rd
and 4th gear is needed when climbing a
gentle slope, it is recommended that the
overdrive switch be tumed off. Tum the
overdrive switch back on immediately afterward.

When the overdrive switch is tumed on, the
transaxle will automatically upshift to the second,
third and overdrive gears. When the overdrive
switch is tumed off, the transaxle will not
upshift to the overdrive gear. For normal driving,
the selector lever should be left in the "D"
position and the overdrive switch tumed on.
If you need to accelerate rapidly, press the
accelerator pedal all the way to the floor. The
transaxle will automatically shift to a lower gear,
depending on the vehicle speed and load.
