What Does Your Hyundai Accent Transmission Do?

The transmission delivers power from the engine to the wheels so that you can drive on your terms. Because of the transmission’s responsibility to translate the right dose of power into the right amount of speed, a small transmission issue can put a big dent in your Accent’s performance. It's a type of car problem that’s not hard to notice. Hyundai Accent transmission problems can present themselves as shifting delays, grinding or jumping during acceleration, the car shaking on the road, or a burning smell or whistling sounds coming from under the hood. Let Hyundai Accent transmission problems linger and you could see your fuel economy decrease or discover that your Accent’s not even driveable.

Questions About 1998 Hyundai Accent’s Transmission

  • What happens if I "ride" my Hyundai's brakes? Riding the brakes or keeping your foot on the brake pedal (even lightly) can lead to transmission issues. Keep that in mind when driving in hilly terrain and remember to use engine braking when possible.
  • How much can my Hyundai tow?   Think twice before volunteering to tow a moving trailer, no matter how small. Defying your Accent towing capacity can spell trouble for the transmission system. Double check your owner's manual to ensure your Accent is equipped with a towing setup and can handle whatever you're thinking about towing.
  • When should I have my Accent's transmission fluid checked or exchanged? Caring for your Hyundai Accent’s transmission fluid is a great way to help it perform. A general rule of thumb is to have your transmission fluid checked and changed about every 30,000 to 60,000 miles, but that timeline can change if you're hard on your Hyundai. Luckily, leaks and low fluid levels are easy to spot and inexpensive to fix.
