If you are servicing a vehicle with no movement in drive or reverse gear, follow the procedure shown below.And for more Hyundai projects,please check here:Hyundai Repair Cases

 

REPAIR PROCEDURE:

1.Check for DTC in both the “Engine” and “Automatic Transaxle” menus:

  • If DTC are found,you need repair it firstly.
  • If no DTC are found, go to Step 2.

  • If a strong burnt smell or metal particles are found, replace the transaxle
  • If not, go to Step 3

NOTE: ATF that is a dark brown or black color does not indicate an internal transaxle concern;do not replace the transaxle. SPIII may change color to a dark brown after 10,000 to 25,000

miles in service. This change is normal for this type of ATF.
