What Does Your Hyundai Sonata 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 tiny transmission issue can take a major toll on your car’s performance. Such problems aren’t hard to spot. Hyundai Sonata transmission problems can present themselves as shifting delays, grinding or jumping during acceleration, a feeling of shakiness, or a burning smell or whistling sounds coming from under the hood. If you ignore Hyundai Sonata transmission issues you might notice your fuel economy decrease or discover that your Sonata’s not even driveable.

Questions About 1990 Hyundai Sonata’s Transmission

  • What happens when you "ride" your Hyundai's brakes? Riding the brakes or keeping your foot on the brake pedal (even lightly) can lead to transmission issues. Remember that when you’re driving down winding roads, and opt for engine braking when possible.
  • How much can I tow in a Hyundai Sonata? Think twice before offering to tow something for a friend, no matter how light the load might seem. 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 Sonata is equipped with a towing setup and can handle whatever you're thinking about towing.
  • When should I have my Sonata's transmission fluid checked or exchanged? Caring for your Hyundai Sonata’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. The good news is that transmission fluid leaks are affordable to repair and easy to spot.
