2001 Hyundai Elantra Problems
If the automatic transmission does not shift properly and the Check Engine Light illuminates, the speed sensors in the transmission may have failed. The sensors are simple and inexpensive to replace.
Prior to replacing the automatic transmission fluid (to improve shift quality), make sure that the transmission fluid level is correct. Also, make sure the computer that controls the transmission has the most up-to-date adaptive programming information. When servicing these transmissions be sure to use fluid approved by Hyundai.

2001 Hyundai Elantra Recalls
Hyundai is recalling 2001–2003 Elantra and Tiburon vehicles in areas of the country with heavy concentrations of road salt usage. Corrosion and thinning of the steel in the front lower control arms may progress to a point where the panels become perforated, which can cause a fracture between the ball joint and pivot attachments to the chassis. This could reduce driver control over the vehicle, which may increase the risk of a crash. Dealers will inspect and replace the affected front lower control arms.

My Elantra has 110k I had it for about 7 years and never really had a major problem with it until now. It seems to be stuck in second or third gear I have not a clue as to what that could be. The engine light came on and the car let out a rough and loud hard shift. The A/C leaks in the inside on the passenger side and I just replaced the alternator. The car has been great except for this prob...
Have 168K on my GT. Very pleased. Some unresolved electrical issues with rear brake lights burning out. Next car will likely be a Hyundai.
