Sounds like you're low on transmission fluid. Let the car warm up and then check the transmission fluid while it is in neutral at idle while it is parked on a level surface (make sure the emergency brake is on of course). If it is low use only dealer fluid. Hyundai takes a special automatic transmission fluid and if mixed with a universal fluid can ruin their transmissions.

Malfunction indicator on, Kia Forte 2012


Soooo...some of you that have seen my posts and responses may be able to tell that I am a "Hot-Head"!! I graduated from Montclair State university this past semester and had my graduation at the IZOD center at the Meadowlands yesterday..long story short, I was in a really rough mood for whatever reason and when Im in one of those moods, I shouldn't be driving especially in north jersey. Anyway, I was ripping my car around in sports shift mode because i have a 2010 Forte Koup 2.4l Automatic 5-speed trans. I'm used to driving it and ripping it around in sports shift since i got the car a couple years ago. To explain this correctly, I drive the sports shift kind of like it has a clutch (but we all know it doesn't) meaning when I go from 1st to 2nd I remain on the gas but sometimes when i like to hear the shifting take place, i will let go of the gas and shift the sports shifter up into 3rd gear. this is definitely NOT needed in an automatic, I'm supposed to keep my foot on the gas while shifting into a higher gear. So after a while of screwing around and driving like a mad man trying to get to my graduation, i came to a red light and for some reason the tip-tronic would not let me downshift to 1st gear nor would the engine automatically downshift to 1st like it is supposed to and usually does. At this point I would only be able to take-off in 2nd or 3rd gear (very weird I know). So i pulled over, turned the car off and restarted it and it seemed to be fine, then I put it in tip-tronic again and it did the same thing: wouldn't let me shift down to first while coming to a stop and remained in 2nd gear. when i finally arrived to my graduation the Engine Malfunction (AKA check engine light) came on. i know this can be due to more than 100 reasons but has anyone ever experienced this before driving their automatic KOUP while driving in tip-tronic? I have an appointment at my dealer for Monday morning and can't wait to see whats wrong with it. Also when i was leaving my house this morning, i put the car in tip-tronic and took off it seemed to be fine, then when i came to a stop sign the same thing happened again where i couldn't downshift to 1st and when i took off in 2nd and shifted to 3rd the car threw itself forward whereas if someone was close to me in front i probably woulda hit them from behind (thank god I didn't). After that happened this morning, I pushed the shifter knob back into regular automatic drive and the engine seemed to lose almost all power meaning when I pushed the gas and even floored it, the car did not pick-up or go anywhere. What could be happening here?!?! Please someone HELP!!!

Sounds like the sensor for first gear.
The transmission comes with a shift sensor for each shift: if 4 shift, 4 sensor (including reverse).
Have somebody check the sensors and the cpu for the tranny. They go hand to hand.

it may be a bad transmission modulator valve located on the side of your transmission,vacum operated. a sudden downshift or forward shift when unexpected is sign of a bad modulator valve or a vacum leak to the transmission.best to shop around for a garage w/references when it comes to transmission work though. check all the vacum lines to your transmision,you need to look on the underneath side of your truck on the side of transmission for a loose or disconnected vacum line on the side of the transmission. when you feel the vacum line,follow it to the top of engine,the vacum line is about 3/8th line,and may be disconnected or losing air. to make this short,when you drive the car,start out in low gear and shift the transmission,manually from 1st to 2nd to 3rd does it do right with no slipping? if it does this right and shifts great manually,the modulator valve on the side of the transmissions bad,or a bad vacum leak in-between.thank you for choosing fixya.com

Over-revving in 5th at 75mph all of a sudden


If the car rev'd up but did not speed up at the same time the clutch is starting to slip. Check the adjustment and recheck driving. When the clutch starts to wear this is how they act, only most people ignore whats happening and keep driving till adjustments won't fix it and the clutch has to be replaced. Have adjustment checked and keep an eye on it and hopefullty you won't need a clutch yet.

Try a tranny service change a place that changes the filter the pan gasket and fluid not some of these quick places that just drain a couple quarts out of the tranny lines and thats it that wont help but a complete tranny service should help.
