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, even the smallest transmission problems should be addressed right away. Such problems aren’t hard to spot. Hyundai Sonata transmission problems can present themselves as shifting delays, jumping or grinding during acceleration, a feeling of shakiness, or a burning smell or whistling sounds coming from under the hood. If you don’t pay attention to Hyundai Sonata transmission trouble you could see your fuel economy decrease or find that your Sonata isn’t working at all.

2000 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. Remember that when you’re driving down winding roads, and opt for engine braking when possible.
  • How much can my Hyundai tow?   Think twice before volunteering to tow a moving trailer, no matter how light the load might seem. Defying your Sonata towing capacity can spell trouble for the transmission system. Always consult your owner's manual before towing or hauling something.
  • Does my Sonata's transmission fluid need to be inspected? Regularly checking and exchanging your 2000 Sonata’s transmission fluid is one of the best ways to help the transmission system 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. Leaks or low transmission fluid are easy to spot and affordable to repair.
