Question about 2001 Hyundai XG300

1 Answer

Should i change tran fluid on xg300?

I have a 2001 hyundai xg300 that shudders when it goes into 3rd gear. The dealer said a transmission flush might fix it. I bought the car @ 56k miles 2 yrs ago and i changed the transmission fluid then. I just recently heard changing the fluid can make a transmission worse but its been about 2 yrs and 21k miles later so now my transmission fluid needs to be changed again because it is brown. Would you recommend getting the flush or would it ruin my car ??

I hav a mercedes s350. when i drive the car shutters when it is changing gears.

It is usually a good idea to get it to a auto a mechanic if the transmissions begins shuddering, but there are some things you can check at home. If the vehicle shudders this may be a sign of low trans fluid or dirty burnt fluid.
Check the owner's manual for the location of the dipstick for the transmission pull a dipstick out and look at the fluid on the end of the dipstick if it's bright red its good if it's black or brown tis burnt you can smell it smell of burnt smell.
No idea of how many miles but if over 100k dont do a trans flush have a "trany splash" done. Flushes on high mile cars can change the fluid 100 % but not the filter. Splash changes fluid in the pan but not the torque converter. Unless there is a drain plug on converter, but a new filter will clean up the converter fluid.
Find a reputable mechanic so you dont end up with a bigger problem if its just the fluid.
Oh if when you pull the dipstick and you do do that and you see that the fluid is a little burnt or it's low always check tranny fluid when the engine is running
To get a accurate reading.

Transmission shuddering combined with transmission slippage may be a sign that too little (pluged filter) or too much fluid is making its way to the transmission. This is usually a telltale sign that the torque converter is failing.

Hope this helps a little.
Best of luck.

My 2003 cadillac cts automatic transmission will not change gears pulls off slowly but will reach high speed

please do not have your transmission flushed , have someone take the oil pan off and replace the filter as well and what ever trans oil you take out replace it as well . no automotive repair shop will warrenty your trans if it should suddenly stop working , but just for your satisfaction ask the transmission repair shop who flushs trans if they guarantee it and have them put it in writing . ive never understood why flush dirty oil and leave the dirty filter in the trans , it collected all dirt and metal wear which is what is causing it to plug up causing it to restrict the oil flow

My 2001 grand marquis hestitates and shutters slighty when downshifting from 4th to 3rd gear, shutting off overdrive eliminates problem

The first thing to do here is to have the transmission fluid changed, the shudder is torque converter clutch chatter, just like a burned clutch in a manual transmission car. The new fluid renews the anti friction additives and in most cases eleiminates the problem, have the transmission flushed so all fluid is replaced.

Shutter at 55-60km/hr

Well, now I see your other post. AT 55-60, huh? Since you changed trans. fluid, are you thinking it may be trans. related? That's about speed when lock-up torque converter would engage. Not sure about your '05, though. Course that may be shifting into overdrive, too. Might try driving in 3rd gear up to 60 and see if shudder develops then. Good luck.

Do you have to drain torqe converter when doing tranny service how muchh fluid goes in with or without draining torqe converter

Torque Converters haven't been drained since
the 1960's & not many even then, had a plug

Remove the trans pan,clean,replace, your done

Never have a trans flushed unless you want problems

Your transaxle can not take much fluid
Don't know how much, but you could ask
a trans shop,a dealer or just buy 4 to 6 qts

All automatic transmissions get changed EVERY
30,000 miles or they will not make 100,000

Power Steering gets flushed at same time or
kiss the rack goodby

My car skips second gear. and goes straight to 3rd. how do i fix this? is it by adding more transmission fluid?

Start by changing trans fluid and filter. Adding fluid is NOT going to change things, sounds like valve body is sticking and a good flush and trans filter might help if it hasn't done too much damage.

I have a 1993 Tracker and the auto. transmission when it goes into 3rd gear slips for a while. When the tranie warms up it's O K. So when it slips I pull it back into 2nd until it warms up enough. What do...

Check trans fluid with engine running - if low, top off. If fluid level is fine then try changing the transmission filter located inside the transmission pan. You may also have an issue with dirty trans fluid - if it is not pinkish but brown then have a transmission power flush done, then change filter.

Can a transmission flush on a 2001 Hyundai XG300 be a DIY job? If so what step should be follow in doing so?

If your going to just do a transmission flush without replacing the filter, the cost is around $75.00 at most speed shop like jiffy lube. The cost for the transmission oil and filter replaced is around $100.00 and worth it's while and time. DIY, your going to have to raise the car to get under it and have a tray large and wide enough to hold up to 4 liters. Undo the the bolts that hold the transmission pan and let the transmission to leak out, once the transmission fluid stopped leaking out. Drop the pan and remove the filter from the transmission valve body. Replace the filter, clean the pan, and clean the transmission and pan contact point before replace the gasket and placing the pan back. bring the car back down and add 4 liters of transmission oil and idle the car running the transmission through the gears. check the fluid level and add if needed, go for a test drive and check the transmission fluid once again and add if needed. Good luck, keep me posted. Be glad to answer any more questions you may have.

Trans drops into 3rd gear won,t shift to 4th

DTC P0734 is "4th gear incorrect ratio" - that's your torque converter 'LOCK UP Clutch" It's worn out (or you're using the wrong Trans Fluid required by Hyundai - SPIII OR Both). The P1624 is simply the Trans Control Unit (computer) communicating to the Engine Control Module (ECM computer) MIL - on request signal to ECM = asking it to turn on "Check Engine" light. MIL = Malfunction Indicator Lamp. When the torque converter 'lock up" clutch slips or doesn't engage, the trans automatically returns to 3rd gear and stays there (it's called 'fail safe' mode) until you cycle the ignition key, then everything resets until the malfunction occurs again.
You'll need to have an AT (Automatic Transaxel) tester hooked up to verify this. Hyundai has a Service Bulletin specifically for "gear incorrect ratio' codes. If when you changed the trans fluid, was it done at a Hyundai Service Center? If not, someone may have installed the wrong fluid.

2001 Hyundai XG300 won't shift past 3rd gear

sorry to say trans is fried.
Consider a used trans from the bone yard
or a rebuilt one.
An independent auto shop is likely to give you a fair price!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
