my elantra 2002 shifts roughly into a higher speed and then the check engine light comes on. does anyone know what the problem would be?


Asked by Aug 13, 2016 at 01:14 PM about the 2002 Hyundai Elantra VE

Question type: Maintenance & Repair

my elantra transmission shifts roughly when I try to pick up speed on the highway.  When it finally reaches the speed I need then the check engine light comes on and stays on.  A mechanic told me that the problem was my transmission filter and he also said that they would need to drop the transmission to get at the filter.  Is this true or is it an easy fix?
