Transmission Services for 1989 Hyundai Excel

Why is Your 1989 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. Because of the transmission’s responsibility to translate the right dose of power into the right amount of speed, a tiny transmission issue can take a major toll on your car’s performance. Such problems aren’t hard to spot. Hyundai Excel transmission problems can present themselves as shifting delays, grinding or jumping during acceleration, the car shaking at any speed, or a burning smell or whistling sounds 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 you can't drive your Excel at all.

1989 Hyundai Excel Questions & Answers

  • Is it bad to ride the brakes in your Hyundai? Riding the brakes (keeping your foot lightly pressed on the brake pedal for a long time) can lead to transmission issues over time. Pay attention to how often you apply your brake and use engine braking when possible.
  • What can I tow in a Hyundai? Think twice before offering to tow something for a friend, no matter how light the load might seem. The added load can mess with your transmission system if it exceeds your Excel’s towing capacity. Always consult your owner's manual before towing or hauling something.
  • When should I have my Excel's transmission fluid checked or exchanged? Regularly checking and exchanging your 1989 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. Luckily, leaks and low fluid levels are easy to spot and inexpensive to fix.
