Thanks Roy. I did try to find all of the recalls and service bullitins on this model and year. But like you said, there are some recalls or services they do only on customer complaints at the dealership. My wife just bought a new Elantra at a dealership near by, so I'll check with them on the info. you gave me. I was ready to pull the valve body off of the trans and start swapping out all of the electric components- this should be alot simpler. I'm going to go ahead and rate you and can always get back to you if there are further problems.
Speaking of additional problems, the EGR valve is throwing a code and the car has a light ruff idle. I don't have the car here to give you the code # but can get it in the morning. The vacume tubing to the EGR, as pictured on the diagram under the hood, had a bebe stuck in it and the air bleed valve the fo the EGR was broken. I replaced that air bleed valve, (little plastic -1tube in and two tubes out- with one of the 2 tubes out having a smaller orifice restricting the amount of forced vacuum to the EGR) thinking this was a simple fix...but no. EGR valve draws up too much at idle and idles even ruffer and sometimes dies. So I unpluged the vac line to the EGR and put a golf tee in it to stop the vacuum leak. (The car still passed California smog with the EGR unplugged-just well disguised!)
I can force the EGR valve open with my fingers and it does close all of the way. It's getting too much vacuum even with the new plastic piece and opens the EGR at idle causing the really ruff idle or car dies.
I'm 61 years old and have been an auto tech my whole life-but you never know it all!
Roy, is this something that a 'Good' repair shop can do or is this pretty much a dealership repair, due to the diag. computer/ HDS scan tool, reprograming and acessing TCM codes? I was only able to receive only one DTC- P0750 shift solenoid A.
Good morning a good shop should be able to handle this.
On the 750. check the resistance of the solenoid first before replacing. A lot of times, it is the actual harness that is the issue not the solenoid itself.
61, great, I got a year on you and going strong.
