Question about 2003 Hyundai Tiburon

Open Question

I have a 2003 hyundai tiburon v6 it is an automatic with tiptronic transmission (stick shift), and after a buddy helped me out of the snow, whenever I go to use my stick shift, it displays its in 3rd gear and I can only downshift to second, but if I just use the automatic Drive, it shifts fine. It goes over 40 km/h (got up to 60m/h on the bypass) as I heard of a problem relating to this but the vehicle wouldn't go over 40 km/h. check engine light also came on, please any help would be appreciated

Sounds like you might have serious internal transmission problems.

As soon as you can, get someone with a code reader to plug in the vehicle and find out what the code is for the Check Engine light to come on. Might give you a better picture of what`s going on.

It could also (cross your fingers) be something more usual like a clogged transmission filter (located inside the pan), or shift solenoid.

By the way, have you checked the level, look & smell of your transmission fluid?

Level should be checked with the vehicle running, after passing it in all gear ranges on the shifter, and putting it back in park (Check it on "cold" or "hot" level depending on if it`s been driving for a while or not).

As for look and smell, it should be reddish and not smell burnt. Hard to describe the smell of burnt transmission fluid, but normal fluid does not smell too strongly, kind of sweet. Burnt oil is usually black and has a strong odor. If the oil is burnt you have internal damage to the transmission.

One piece of advice I give you is get it fixed as soon as possible because if you don`t already have serious internal transmission problems, the longer you wait, the more chances you have of getting some, to the point of the vehicle just refusing to move. And believe me, speaking from experience, the transition point from the symptoms you describe to total refusal to move and the need for a tow/transmission rebuild is not that long usually.

SOURCE: transmission on my 2001 Hyundai Elantra GLS

your shifts correctly, as your driving it downshifts and stay stuck at that gear when u stop and try to take off but intell u turn off your car and restart it it shifts correctly intell a few mins later. i am thinking that is a speed sensor (out signal problem) mounted on top of your transmission next to the battery tray, you will see couple of cable linkages next to it ...

SOURCE: 2001 Hyundai Tiburon automatic transmission problem

I am having the same issue with my 99 Tiburon, which has run great until now. I had the trans flushed, but it still seems to be doing the same thing. I have found that there is an automatic trans fluid temperature sensor that goes bad, and when it gets cold, it tells the trans that it is REALLY cold. I am having trouble trying to find out exactly where that sensor is located, but i have found a great article with the part number here: http://www.transmissiondigest.com/tech/TD200604/ShiftPointers/Shift%20Pointers%20HTML.htm
Hope that helps!

SOURCE: trans drops into 3rd gear won,t shift to 4th

DTC P0734 is "4th gear incorrect ratio" - that's your torque converter 'LOCK UP Clutch" It's worn out (or you're using the wrong Trans Fluid required by Hyundai - SPIII OR Both). The P1624 is simply the Trans Control Unit (computer) communicating to the Engine Control Module (ECM computer) MIL - on request signal to ECM = asking it to turn on "Check Engine" light. MIL = Malfunction Indicator Lamp. When the torque converter 'lock up" clutch slips or doesn't engage, the trans automatically returns to 3rd gear and stays there (it's called 'fail safe' mode) until you cycle the ignition key, then everything resets until the malfunction occurs again.
You'll need to have an AT (Automatic Transaxel) tester hooked up to verify this. Hyundai has a Service Bulletin specifically for "gear incorrect ratio' codes. If when you changed the trans fluid, was it done at a Hyundai Service Center? If not, someone may have installed the wrong fluid.

Hi

Well two of the tranny codes ; P0734 and PO732 indicate gear 2,3,4 ratio incorrect. This can be caused by poor readings at the input and output speed sensors or pulse generators. The P1709 code is in reference to the kickdown servo switch.

Replacing the pulse generator set and TCM reprogramming( as per TSB) may solve your problem, otherwise you have a major component failure in the transmission unit. I would get some line pressures at the transmission checked first.

Sounds like the transmission is in fail safe mode, this happens when there is a transmission fault, you only have two gears 2nd and reverse.

Hope this helps - Steve

2003 Hyundai Tiburon v6 gt 1-2anR work fine 3-4-d slipping fluid is fine could it be a sensor or need another transmission.


It could be a shift solenoid. It needs scanned first to see which one. Unlikely 3rd and 4th clutches burnt at the same time. But keep driving it this way and they will burn up.

Hello I have a Hyundai tiburon 2003 v6 GT. I don't


the rpm's can vary from car to car , it all depends on the gearing in the transmission and ratios, 4.0 does seem high for a V6 the easiest thing would to be have your transmission serviced , on this car you need to get the Idle Air Control checked, In all the forums Ive read on this car , that seems to be whats wrong when the RPM's seem to high, also if you have the automatic trans and an electronic manual shifting mode does it do the same thing when you have it in the manual mode? there has been lots of discussion also on the MAP sensor,, I would suggest you have the OBD codes read to see if its listing any trouble codes within the computer that can help with locating your answers, once you get those codes if you post the results here, people will help you and explain what they mean, If you reply to this feed by replying, I will look them up for you

I want to change my 6 speed transmission to automatic how much trouble is it in a 2003 hyundai tiburon


It would be a fairly difficult project. You'ld need to change trans mount, different driveshaft, shifter & linkage, add a torque converter, new radiator w/trans cooler built in lower section, cooler lines. On top of all that, Hyundai automatic transmissions are very unreliable.
