Hyundai Transmission Repair

The transmission is one of the most important parts of your vehicle. It's responsible for transferring power from your engine to the driveshaft, which makes the wheels turn. Your transmission is made up of a number of parts which can experience serious wear and tear.

When transmission problems arise, it can mean you're completely unable to drive your car. Fixing your transmission can also become expensive. Here are some tips to help you keep your Hyundai's transmission running smoothly, so you're less likely to need repairs.

When Should I Change My Transmission Fluid?

Transmission fluid helps the gears in your Hyundai stay lubricated, so there's less wear and tear as your car shifts. Over time, this fluid can break down and become contaminated. But how often should you change your transmission fluid? Generally, it's a good idea to get it changed every 30,000 to 60,000 miles. For the average driver, this means every one to two years. If you tend to put a lot of mile on your vehicle in a short space of time or drive over rough terrain, you may want to get your fluid changed every 15,000 to 25,000 miles. Guidelines can vary depending on the mileage on your car, but you can consult your manual to see the manufacturer recommendation.

How Do I Check My Hyundai's Fluid Levels?

One of the most common transmission issues is low fluid. It's fairly easy to check the transmission fluid level on your own. First, you'll want to run your car for several minutes, since it's best to check levels when the engine is warm. The dipstick should be located under the hood near the oil dipstick. Check to see if your level is low. If so, you probably need to add transmission fluid. You can also check the color of your fluid by putting some on your finger. Transmission fluid should be pink or red. If your fluid looks brown, smells burnt, or contains particles, it probably needs to be changed by a mechanic.

What Are Signs I Need a Transmission Repair?

Hyundai Transmission RepairYour transmission is a complex piece of equipment, and there are a wide variety of things that can go wrong with it. Unless you have mechanical expertise, it can be hard to know if a problem is serious or not. However, there are a number of signs to look out for. One of the major ones is transmission slipping. If your car is struggling to accelerate or changes gear for no reason, you should probably take it to a mechanic as soon as possible. A delay between the time you press the gas and the time the car actually moves is another indication of an issue. Fluid leaks can also be a sign of a serious problem. Transmission fluid is normally a shade of red, so if you see red fluid appear underneath of your car, you should get it looked at.
