Question about 2001 Hyundai Tiburon

1 Answer

I have a 2001 Hyundai tiburon, it will go into overdrive cold. but when it gets up to temp it wont.

I was driving along and it tried to shift into over drive. and it blew my exhaust pipe off the catalytic converter. which i fixed, but just after I realized it wont shift into over drive unless its cold. while driving it tries to shift but it just jerks the car and it stays in 3rd. I haven't done anything because i believe its a transmission issue, but I'm not to sure.i have been told that it could just need a band adjustment. please help me

SOURCE: automatic transmission sounds like it stuck in 3rd gear

You need to check the transmission fluid level, if it is low the tranny will not shift. If, however, the fluid is to the proper level then you will need a new transmission.
Try putting new fluid in and look for a leak in the pan gasket, then all you may need is a transmission service. When the service is done the mechanic will look for pieces of metal in the old fluid, if found this is very bad and you will need a new tranny.
You might consider a new or used car, you can definately find a good deal out there!

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: 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.

Hard to start. Also, feels like vapor locking. Stalls while running or driving.


If the car runs for a while and then stalls you should suspect that internal parts of the catalytic converter are lodging themselves in the exaust pipe between the first catalytic converter and the second or between the second converter and the exhaust pipe muffler. When the catalyst chunks partially block the hole the car will stall. To test, try opening the exhaust after the first converter just enough to make it really loud and try driving it to see if the problem disappears. If it does you will have to remove pipe sections until you find the catalyst chunks and remove them.

Starts misfiring and dies after good start


pull your plugs and do a compression test and a leak down test. make sure the engine is cooled down before you take thew plugs out. first thing you may want to try is to check for vacuum leaks, if you can keep it running, spray carburetor cleaner at vacuum lines, throttle plate mountting and along the intake as best as you can. If at some time the engine pulls down then you found a vacuum leak. check for more after you fix it until your sure all is right. You masy have clogged EGR passages too.

I have a 1999 Tiburon. Trans starts off in 2nd gear and goes to 3rd but will not go into overdrive.When starting cold though, it will shift 1,2&3. Also overdrive(4th gear) light will not come on.


I would check into the Trans oil temp sensor,they are known to keep the trans from shifting into 4th gear if they have a open or a shorted circuit...This may also be the culprit for the other issues you are experiencing when the trans is at diff temps and doing diff things....The other thing that is known for going bad in that Transaxle is the Sunshell...The splines on the inside of the sunshell strip out and than you will lose pretty much all forward gears,Except for 1st gear most likely and you will also lose Reverse if the Sunshell goes bad...But this will not act any different if the temperature is cold or hot

Over drive on transmission work after 15 km


cold engines/tranmissions may not shift into overdrive until the engine reaches operating temp or goes into "closed loop"

Loss power wont start maybe exhaust or catltic ?


I had a chevrolet cavalier once that had a clogged exhaust. i was driving and the catalytic converter fell apart, and clogged the exhaust system. I completely lost power, and barely got home. Try getting your arm under the car, and hit the catalytic converter with your had, or a mallet. If it has fallen apart and failed, you should hear a clattering sound. Try inspecting the whole exhaust system, looking for bends in the exhaust pipes. When my catalytic converter failed, i also heard a hissing sound when it was running, and the engine was slightly overheating because of the restriction in the exhaust.
!!GOOD LUCK!!
