Hyundai Sonata transmissions were much less than reliable. In most cases, the symptoms you describe are caused by an internal transmission failure that will require an overhaul or replacement. To be sure, however, you should check the shift cable and the adjustment and operation of the inhibitor switch. If that's good, you can pretty much draw the conclusion that you're looking at expensive repairs.

Cost will vary greatly by geographic location and the shop where you have the vehicle repaired. You'd be best served by calling a few places to see what they'd charge to overhaul or replace the transmission with one that's already been remanufactured. Be sure to call your local Hyundai dealer also. Hyundai prices their remanufactured transmissions very competetively, so many dealers sell them for less than Hyundai's list price.

I hope helps with this; keep us updated (remember to rate this).

You need to clean the IAC again and also the throttle valve and bore, use only CRC brand Throttle body cleaner. After they are thoroughly cleaned disconnect the battery for 5 min's and then drive the car in varying condition for a few days. If that doesn't cure the issue you have more serious problems and will need a scan tool to look into the readings from the MAF, TPS and ECT sensors. High idle cold start is normal then slowly dropping after a few minutes. I assume you never had a check engine light. Correct?

When I start the car and try to rverse it will not move.. i dont know if it will go forward because i can not get out of the park to see.

try letting the car warm up for about ten minutes then have a friend help, try rocking the car back and fourth and shifting it sounds like your transmission in stuck in between park and reverse. this may help also you might try to step out of the car with a friend holding the break try and shift the car manually from under the hood. Let me know if this helps.

Where is my starter located on my 96 Lesabre and how do i get to it

You will have to disconnect the battery positive cable, jack the car up so that you can gain access from the bottom. It is located in front of the engine facing the engine, There is a plastic cover that goes around the starter that should be removed. It takes ten mm wrench or socket to remove the cover. There are two large bolts that hold the starter in place, they go through the bottom of the starter. Use a 15 mm socket to remove the bolts. There is two wires that are attached to the back of the starter. It takes a 13 mm socket or wrench to remove the large one a 8mm socket to remove the small wire. Once removed slide the starter out and rverse procedure to install.

Rebuilding 1995 honda civic transmission

Did you make sure that the tork converter was all the way forward first if not then you will need to take the transmission back out and make sure that the converter has either automatic trany fluid in it or 184/85 gear oil depending on whether or not you have automatic trasmission or manual fill it up until you can put your finger in it and then rotate converter clock wise and it should slip into place before putting trasmission back into car and if after doing that and you still are having trouble take it to a transmission shop to have them do it for you.
