Question about 2003 Hyundai Santa Fe

2 Answers

Jerking while idling and driving

While driving the car will start to **** and sometimes die if you don't give it more acceleration. It will sometimes do the jerking motion when idling. When driving and it does the jerking motion if you shift to 3rd or 4th and give more acceleration the jerking motion will go away. What could be causing this? The car has been to a mechanic and nothing comes up saying that there is something wrong, no codes or anything.

If your car has a fuel filter it may be plugging up.

The first thing you do is to have the fault codes checked with a scan tool.

SOURCE: slow acceleration and jerking when put in drive or reverse

Just wondering if you had checked your trans fluid?
If it's at the right level I might go back to the place that did the tranny work and have a chat with them,
If your fluid is low you have to get it at the dealer, I think it is call sp5, I'll go check the bottle I have.

-will-

SOURCE: 2001 Hyundai Tiburon automatic transmission problem

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 : )

SOURCE: 2000 Hyundai Sonata jerking and causing poor performance

The turbine shaft speed sensor can cause this problem, It is also know as the transmission input shaft speed sensor. It will cause the transmission to **** and also stick in 3rd gear, which wound cause slow acceleration.

SOURCE: engine revs but car doesn't accelerate

Since you did not say what type of transmission you have i will suspect the clutch is slipping if it's a manual.
If it's an automatic, it could be several things. Low fluid level...clogged filter, fluid needs to be changed..transmission serviced...weak pump, bands/clutch packs worn...etc
Good luck..i hope this helps, please rate me a fixya.
