2005 Hyundai Elantra ProblemsConfirm Latest Software For Transmission Control Module and Correct Fuild For Proper Shift Quailty
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.
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.
2005 Hyundai Elantra QuestionsThis car idles really rough, any idea why? (1 answer)
I just bought it, so I don't know much about it. The guys I got it from said they replaced some, but not all of the motor mounts, I know that might be the issue. But what other possible causes are there?
2005 Hyundai Elantra RecallsRecall 05V479000
The steering gearbox assembly's left and right inner ball joint assemblies may contain internal cracks in the material. This may allow the inner ball joint to break away, separating the tie rod from the steering gearbox. This would prevent steering control to the wheel with the separated tie rod, which could cause a crash. Dealers will replace the steering gearbox assemblies free of charge. All owners were notified by telephone on April 8, 2005, and instructed not to drive their vehicles. Hyundai arranged for the pickup and return of the vehicles. The Hyundai recall number is 069.
