1987 Hyundai Excel Transmission Service

Why is Your 1987 Excel’s Transmission So Important?

The transmission delivers power from the engine to the wheels so that you can drive on your terms. Because your transmission is responsible for converting the right amount of power into the right amount of speed, a small transmission issue can put a big dent in your Excel’s performance. Such problems aren’t hard to spot. Hyundai Excel transmission problems can present themselves as shifting delays, jumping or grinding during acceleration, 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 could see your fuel economy decrease or find that your Excel isn’t working at all.

Questions About 1987 Hyundai Excel’s Transmission

  • Is it bad to ride the brakes in your Hyundai? 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 offering to tow something for a friend, no matter how small it is. The added weight can cause issues with your transmission if your vehicle isn't equipped to handle the load. Double check your owner's manual to ensure your Excel is equipped with a towing setup and can handle whatever you're thinking about towing.
  • How often does my Excel transmission fluid need to be checked? Maintaining your Hyundai Excel transmission fluid is one of the best ways to maintain your transmission's health. 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. Leaks or low transmission fluid are easy to spot and affordable to repair.
