transaxle wont shift out of first
i just got a 1997 elantra for cheap cuz the automatic transaxle will only go in first. reverse doesn't work either. drop it in low and go, it goes but doesnt shift.. i removed the aircleaner to check out the linkage it all looks good (like i would know!!) but when thew key is on and the shifter is in a gear then i hear a rapidfire clicking or ticking noise not too loud but loud enough to hear clearly. i was told that it was a solenoid which seems to make sense. maybe a solenoid clicking but never engaging. maybe a sensor of some sort. to make it clear the shifter works fine. the tranny doesnt respond correctly to the shifter is the problem please i need help i am poor i have to figure things out for myself i cant afford professional help.
Dear imdlefty-- I would think that the person who sold you the 1997 Hyundai Elantra cheaply would have examined all options himself before he surrendered to the sale. The first thing I would do, and sorry, it might cost you a few bucks, is to have a transmission shop look at it. Hopefully they will find that your problem can be corrected by a computer update (and I have seen many of the worst sounding transmission problems cured this way.) If that is not the case, you can go on and try fixing it yourself (not easy.) You can go to the following site for some text and diagrams that might help you-- http://autozone.com/servlet/UiBroker?ForwardPage=/az/cds/en_us/0900823d/80/1d/55/c0/0900823d801d55c0.jsp. Good luck from Bovan.
