There are Technical Service Bulletins (TSBs) on many of the Elantras specifically related to hard or abrupt shifting when the transmission or weather is cold. You may need to take it to a Hyundai dealer to ensure the TSBs for the TCM related to shifting have been applied to your particular vehicle.

There is a transmission controller that is located under the dash beside the right hand side of the steering column. It is held on to a bracket by two 10mm bolts. A change in that transmission control computer will make the transmission shift like new

Did you check the transmission fluid level? If necessary, add fluid. However you probably have a more serious problem. Take the car to a qualified transmission mechanic.

A knock sensor code has nothing to do with OD engagement, most likely the OD solenoid is sticking or the OD is magnetic clutch is defective inside the transmission torque converter, any Trans shop will road test and give u a preliminary diagnosis for free, suggest you do that.

Why does automatic shift hard when cold, then shifts OK after warm up?


There could be a number of factors contributing to a hard shift when cold. Year/make.model?? High mileage? Old fluid/filter in the tranny can cause lots of problems. If the fluid has never been serviced, start there and see if it gets any better

Transmission Question


It sounds to me like the transmission is starting to fail. As the clutches inside the transmission wear the clutch pack gains additional clearance. Your pressures in the transmission will be higher with cold oil so it has a tendency to build a bit of extra pressure, but it's also slower in flowing through the transmission. This results in a harder hitting first gear. As the transmission warms up, it will reduce the viscosity of the oil and work fine. Cold weather kills automatic transmissions. Let it warm up before driving it or it won't last long. It will require an overhaul soon.

1993 Suburban 4 speed automatic transmission shifts hard front 1st to second. Transmission is 3 years old, 15,000 miles. It is a factory rebuilt.


That should be the L60-4 truck version
Have the sedan version, 93 Caprice.
That was the first year of the new electronic shifting transmission.
Especialy when cold she will shift hard, but it's normal.
But that depends on what you call normal.
I have gotten used to it over the last 17 years.

Sluggish gear shift on 5-spd Saturn Vue


I have the same problem, Noticing that my 2006 Saturn Vue, 5-speed becomes extremely hard to shift gears when the weather is cold. (Temps range from 20-43). Has been colder in the last month. What could this be?

also side note:
Our windshield wiper spray doesn't work on front window but work on back. They both started about the same time when the temps dropped to single digits. Dont know if that had any causes.
