It's a type of car problem that’s not hard to notice. 1998 Hyundai Sonata transmission problems can show up as shifting delays, grinding or jumping during acceleration, a feeling of shakiness, or whistling noises or a burning smell coming from beneath the hood.

1998 Hyundai Sonata Transmission Q&A

  • What happens when you "ride" your Hyundai's brakes? Keeping your foot on the brake pedal or lightly but consistently pushing it down can lead to transmission problems. Keep that in mind when driving in hilly terrain and remember to use engine braking when possible.
  • How much can I tow in a Hyundai Sonata? Think twice before volunteering to tow a moving trailer, no matter how small. Defying your Sonata towing capacity can spell trouble for the transmission system. Check your owner's manual to ensure you have the proper towing setup and aren't going over your towing capacity.
  • When should I have my Sonata's transmission fluid checked or exchanged? Regularly checking and exchanging your 1998 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. The good news is that transmission fluid leaks are affordable to repair and easy to spot.
