Why is Your 1986 Excel’s Transmission So Important?

Your transmission carries power from the engine to the wheels so that you can drive at the speed you desire.

It's a type of car problem that’s not hard to notice. 1986 Hyundai Excel transmission problems could include shifting delays, grinding when accelerating, a feeling of shakiness, or whistling noises and a burning smell coming from under the hood. If you don’t pay attention to Hyundai Excel transmission trouble you might notice your fuel economy decrease or find that your Excel isn’t working at all.

1986 Hyundai Excel Questions & Answers

  • What happens if I "ride" my Hyundai's brakes? Riding the brakes (keeping your foot lightly pressed on the brake pedal for a long time) can lead to transmission issues over time. Keep that in mind when driving in hilly terrain and remember to use engine braking when possible.
  • What can I tow in a Hyundai? Think twice before volunteering to tow a moving trailer, no matter how small it is. Defying your Excel towing capacity can spell trouble for the transmission system. Always consult your owner's manual before towing or hauling something.
  • How often does my Excel transmission fluid need to be checked? Regularly checking and exchanging your 1986 Excel’s transmission fluid is one of the best ways to help the transmission system perform. About every 30,000 to 60,000 miles is a good timeframe for having your transmission fluid inspected and perhaps changed. Service intervals can vary depending on how you use your Hyundai, so check with your technician first. Leaks or low transmission fluid are easy to spot and affordable to repair.
