1997 Hyundai Sonata Maintenance Schedule

When is the best time to get transmission services for your 1997 Hyundai Sonata?

What Does Your Hyundai Sonata Transmission Do?

The transmission delivers power from the motor to your wheels so that you can drive at your desired speed. Since the transmission has to translate the precise amount of power for your desired 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 when accelerating, the car shaking on the road, or a burning smell or whistling sounds coming from under the hood. Let Hyundai Sonata transmission problems linger and you could see your fuel economy decrease or find that you can't drive your Sonata at all.

1997 Hyundai Sonata Questions & Answers

  • What happens when you "ride" your 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. Pay attention to how often you apply your brake and use 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. Defying your Sonata towing capacity can spell trouble for the transmission system. 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.
  • How often does my Sonata transmission fluid need to be checked? Regularly checking and exchanging your 1997 Sonata’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.
