I have a 1997 Hyundai Excel and its surging at about 3000 rpm and under load like climing hills what would cause this. Tia


Engine is surging or the transmission slipping? My guess is the transmission is slipping, letting the engine rev up to 3000. Does it feel like it quits pulling?

Transmission slip mainly at highway speeds


This does not sound good. It is possibly your O/D direct clutch or O/D brake slipping in the transmission. Seek a couple of specialist opinions.

Rpm starts reving high & then transmition on highway slips only allowing the automatic transmition to drive at 30 mps


the bad new is that the transmission has failed....the high revving is due to the clutches slipping (yes, auto transmission have clutches, about 3-4 of them wet), as the material wears on them they start to slip.

i bet if you checked the transmission oil, it would smell burnt and be dark brown, it should be red and sweet smelling.....no cheap way around this unfortunatley.....sorry

I have a 98 Tahoe that just recently after driving on the highway coming into town to a stop and then accerating again has a big thump (****) almost like someone bumping the rear of the car. A friend said...


If you think it could be the overdrive, try driving with the transmission selector in 3rd, rather than overdrive. If it helps, may have diagnose the problem.

Another option, not sure if that year model had the tow/haul function, where you could set the transmission shift point to change because you were hauling a trailer.

If you can narrow down the problem to the transmission for sure, I would still start with a transmission filter & fluid change, cheaper than rebuilding a transmission.
