I have a 2005 hyundai elantra, 108k miles on it and when I drive at constant throttle and imbetween around 30mph - 40mph my tachometer bounces up and down a bit, sometimes more. It seems to lose power sometimes to and the engine does rev in connection to the bouncing of the tach. Also sometimes when slowing down and I slow to about 20mph I get a jerk as if it went to too low of gear. I have rplaced TPS and the input speed sensor, do I need the output as well? Or is it even a speed sensor? Does anyone have an idea on this? There is no check engine light on.

    It is possible you have an internal transmission problem. What does the fluid look like? it should be a clean pink color. Smell it too, does it smell burnt? If your transmission hasn't been serviced in a while I would start there. Expect to pay $100-$200 for the service.

    Have the TPS and it's circuit tested directly using a real scanner and dvom to see if both readings match. Possible ECM or wiring problem. TPS signal has major influence on engine rpm and trans. shift.
