Question about Hyundai Motor 2002 Elantra
Having problems with my 2002 Elantra automatic:
-for years now, it shifts harsh between 2-3 when cold, and only on the first shift
-last week, the engine stared to surge on the highway, about 2-300 rpm, like it was kicking the overdrive off, then on again
-that same day, it shifted harshly between gears, but only some gears, some of the time
-then got code P0121 TPS switch "A" circuit range/performance from the diagnostic at the Hyundai dealership
-yesterday, when accelerating from a stop light, it would not go past 2nd gear. I had to pull over, come to a complete stop, and go again. Then it worked fine
The dealership wants to start replacing parts, without knowing which part is faulty.
SOURCE: 2002 Elantra P0121 code
If you are getting a range performance code, then you need to put the car in nuetral and adjust the cable on the range switch on the transmission. If you look almost under the air filter you will see the range switch and the cable being connected to it. If you notice, there are two "prongs", one on the cable bracket, the other on the range switch. Each "prong" has a hole in the end of it and they must be in alignment when the gear selector is in nuetral. Put the car into nuetral and then use a 12mm socket to loosen the nut on top of the cable bracket and adjust the two holes until you can slide a pin into them and lock them back down into place. This should stop your problem.
