My 2003 Hyundai tiburon gt won't go into park and it won't…

Customer Question
My 2003 Hyundai tiburon...

My 2003 Hyundai tiburon gt won't go into park and it won't shift in regular drive I have to drive it in slap shift

Mechanic's Assistant: How old is the transmission? Have you noticed any leaking?

Haven't noticed any leaking at all and not entirely sure it's never been replaced

Mechanic's Assistant: Are you fixing your Tiburon yourself? What have you tried so far?

Well I noticed it wouldn't go into park the first couple times I push it up and then it quit altogether so one day I forced the shifter into park and now even when it's in regular drive it still shows D1 and won't shift at all unless I slap shift

Mechanic's Assistant: Anything else you want the mechanic to know before I connect you?

That's all that's wrong and I can't even get it to slap shift until the car warms up

Hello my name is ***** ***** I will be assisting you with all of your vehicle questions today. Give me one moment while I review your question and come back with a answer. Please be aware I do not know your skill level or abilities so I will be asking a lot of questions and in a lot of cases we will respond to each other quite a lot before we find a solution. As far as phone calls are concerned that is the system prompting you, not me, and they do cost more money, I prefer text but in some cases a phone call is required.

I don't know how to pull codes from the vehicle
Auto Mechanic: Mechanic01, ASE Certified Technician replied 11 months ago

Your local auto parts stores will do it for free, I would see if there are any codes in it and go from there, im assuming you checked the fluid and condition and level were ok ?
