Question about Hyundai Motor 2003 Elantra

1 Answer

2003 Hyundai having trouble shifting into 3rd gear. Manual tranny, clutch replaced 40k miles ago. Recent issues w/air in hydraulic line. Once bled was fine for few months. Tried it again but still having problems w/3rd. Then unable to shift at all and discovered broken bushing on shift arm mechanism. All other gears seem ok? Anyone know how to isolate issues above tranny before I consider replacement? HELP! Thank you.

Most of the time,1st,and second maybe a little hard to shift,if there is a hydraulic problem,but moving,and shifting to 3rd,it is most likely the 3rd gear synchronizer that is the problem,replacement of this item ,would correct the problem.All the problems you where having before that you described,most likely caused the damage to the synchronizer.

Check your clutch fluid level in the clutch master cylinder's reservoir. If low add brake fluid. If very low or dry, the clutch hydraulic system should be bled to remove air in the line. Bleeding is done down at the clutch slave cylinder on the transaxle.
I would not recommend using a lighter oil. It may cause early wear of the transmission.

Hi, I bought Hyundai Accent Executive in January 2010. It was running great, however in last December, I took it to a place where road was in a very bad condition and the weather was extremely bad, so i...


You must understand you have a clutch operated by hydraulic fluid. It uses brake fluid as the hydraulic fluid. If air gets into the system it is bad, because fluid doesn't compress like air does. When you press down the clutch pedal, you are forcing brake fluid to go down a small line to a small cylinder near your transaxle. The fluid is under pressure from the pedal to mechanically move a lever inside the tranny that allows clutch action (shifting gears) to occur. See?
So air got in because you must have a leak in your clutch hydraulic system. It is a sealed system, and is composed of a clutch master cylinder (mounted on the firewall under the hood, just in front of your clutch pedal) and a line from this clutch master cylinder to a smaller "slave cylinder" down on the bell housing that is between the engine and the transaxle. This slave cyl. is the small cylinder I spoke of above that is near the transaxle.
That is all there is to the hydraulic part of the clutch. So the mechanic added fluid at the master cylinder at the reservoir, and then bled the system down at the slave cylinder. If air got in- it had to be leaking somewhere. Once you get the leak stopped, the problem should go away.

Thanks for your help! My 1998 Ford contour four-cylinder, five-speed manual transmission intermittently has difficulty going into reverse and first gears. The problem is intermittent. Most of the time...


You still have air trapped in teh hydrualic clutch. Bleed again and again until you get the air out. try actuating teh clutch several times fast just before you bleed it.

the clutch is partially applied, that's why it is hard to shift. the synchros can;t overcome the input shaft spinning.

Guaranteed you have air, 100%

Tranny stuck in 3rd gear


If it's a manual and it's stuck in 3rd gear, it could be the clutch master or slave cylinder does not have enough hydraulic fluid to release the clutch.

If it's an automatic, then there is an internal problem to the transmission. Possibly the shift solenoid is plugged up or damaged or defective.

If it's an automatic and you can't shift out of the 3rd gear, at the shifter, then there is a problem with the transmission linkage, maybe.

Clutch slipping or hydraulic system failure AGAIN.


no the problem is the driver ,riding the clutch and resting the foot on it whilst driving ,causing excessive wear and tear ,i would respectfully suggest you buy a vehicle with automatic transmission

1991 jeep wrangler sahara shifting promblems


Your clutch is not disengaging. If it a hydrolic clutch chk. the fluid in resavor, Or slave cyl. for the clutch is bad, Or it has got air in it and needs to be bleed. This is a clutch problem, nothing wrong with trans. If its a manual clutch linkage its an ajustment thing. My best guess if its hydrolic slave cyl. went bad, or resavor is out of fluid.

1991 jeep wrangler not shifting into gear could this be clutch


I would first bleed the tranny lines, if that doesnt work then your tranny is out and need to get it replaced. FYI with Jeep Wranglers, It is better to get a new transmission then to rebuild them

Hard Shifting 1997 5 Speed Honda Civic Manual Transmission


if its manual transmission, when moving in any gear try stepping on the gas pedal, does the engine feels like its running away? if it does it maybe the clutch lining is expended expensive job.
If not you have to check the clutch fluid level or a leak in the master cylinder (at the foot pedal) assembly or in the slave(clutch lever actuator) the clutch actuator may not be traveling (pushing) sufficiently to give you an adequate clutch separation in other words you are trying to shift the gears with little or no clutch at all.
There is an overhaul kit that you can buy (cheap) for the master or the slave. easy to do really just remove, disassemble, replace the rubber seals and cups, reinstall, bleed the air out.
