More than likely, like most automatic transmissions, yours does not have an oil plug. You need to drop the transmission oil pan to drain the old oil... You need to buy a transmission filter/pan gasket kit. The filter is located on the bottom of the tranny. You will see it when you remove the pan. Replace the filter, thoroughly remove any traces of old gasket material, clean the mating surfaces, and reinstall the pan with the new gasket. Torque the pan bolts to the manufacturers spec (you should be able to get this where you buy the filter/gasket kit). Refill the transmission through the dipstick (Capacity for the Voyager is 4 quarts, make sure to use ATF Plus (Type 7176) for your particular tranny, NOT Dexron, Mercon, or generic automatic transmission fluid, Chrysler transmissions do not like any other kind and tend to fail quite quickly with the wrong fluid). Fill to the full cold level. Start the engine, move the shifter through all gear ranges, and put it back in park. Leave the engine running and refill to cold full. Drive the car for 5-10 minutes and, with the engine still running and the car in park, fill to Hot full. You should be ready to go!

SOURCE: transmission filter on 2003 hyundia santa fe

In 2002 they discontinued the external trans filter. So your vehicle could have the external filter. If you look next to the trans dipstick tube, on top of the trans case you will see the filter or you will see just a spot where the filter use to go before they eliminated it. Yes, the filter does llok like a regular engine oil filter. If the trans does not have the external filter ontop then there is no service to the filter to be done, the only recommendation is to bring vehicle into a shop to have the fluid flushed. By the way, make SURE you use the correct Hyundai SP-III trans fluid (not dexron/mercon). This fluid is specific to the Hyundai and can not be purchased from auto parts stores, only the dealership. Failure to use SP-III will cause premature wear to the internal bands and clutches.

SOURCE: radiator fluid leak

Do this test, bypass your heater core by removing both hoses and connect them together with a small threaded pipe coupling and then worm gear clamp them on to the coupling. Be sure to mark one of then with a tye wrap so you will know if its top/bottom/left or right. Then run it a few days and routinely check for leaks if there are'nt any more leaks then you either had a small hair line tear or crevice corrosion at one of the hoses at the fire wall or there is a small leak just inside the fire wall on the heater core. When reinstalling the hoses cut a 1/4 of a inch off of them and then reinstall and recheck for the leak. If you still see it then its internal then there is the real pain of changing the heater core. Good Luck :?) DRRXR

You might have lost your lower gears, I would have someone look at it to see if your gears are gone or if its just a faulty sensor.

How do i get the key code from the vin. number in my 2010 hyundia santa-fe suv


It sounds like you need to go to the dealer. If you could get it from your vin...anyone else could.
Have you checked the case that has all your owners manual and other papers that is usually in the glove compartment? Sometimes this will have 1 piece of paper that has your key code.

My 2004 Santa Fe has developed a significant leak between the engine and transmission. I can see the area of the leak and the fluid seems to be transmission, not oil. Am I looking a potential big...


Check and see if the leak is not further up. A leak between the transmission and engine is a seal. Even though the seal is $ 10.00 The labor is $400.00+

Is it costly to repair a transmission fluid leak on a hyundai santa fe?


It really depends on where the leak is, if it is cooler lines it could get spendy, rear seal not so bad, pan gasket, not so bad, if you could let me know where it is leaking i could get you a better idea of cost.

It sounds like the transmission slipped. You need have the vehicle check for trouble codes and the trans. fluid level.

Where do I find the transmission fluid drain plug and filter to replace on 2003 Hyundai Santa Fe?


Some vehicles had filters and some didn't. If you have a filter it will be inside the transmission pan, and in that case there won't be a drain plug. You just take the pan off and try to get as little on you as possible when all the fluid comes out. MUCH easier if you have a lift.

If you don't have a pan then the drain plug is on the bottom. Manual transmissions don't have a pan, but sometimes the automatics didn't either.

Fluid: Hyundai Manual Transmission fluid if it's a 5 speed, and Hyundai ATF or Mitsubishi Triple Diamond ATF only if it's an automatic. Dexron and generic ATF does not fair well in these transmissions.

Call a dealership parts department with the VIN number and see if there is a filter kit available for your vehicle if it has an automatic transmission.
