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.
Premature timing belt failure may result in serious engine damage. When replacing a broken timing belt, it is important to inspect and possibly replace the crankshaft position sensor; it is often damaged when the timing belt breaks.

2000 Hyundai Sonata Reviews
I was driving my 2000 Hyundai Sonata GLS and the brake and battery lights came on. They started out flashing then stayed on. When in park I revved the engine and the lights would go out then come back on. Later on in the evening I drove it again. The lights did'nt come on at first but then on again. So I stomped on the pedal to go and then it acted like my transmission was in neutral. the check engine light now came on as well. I don't get what is going on. I drove in the dark and my lights starting to dim. I managed to get it home safely. Ishut it off and tried to restart it but it just clicks as if the battery was dead. Can someone explain to me what is going on?
I bought this car with 123,000 miles, five years ago as a senior in high school from a action. Today there is 217,000 miles on it, and its running strong. I could have not gotten a better car. I have beaten this car up, from running out of oil twice, running out of gas countless times, rallying it through old country roads, to driving through the city for 3 years. All this and I have only changed the cv joint on both sides, window regulator, oil and a lot of tires (thats my fault bent all the alignment but the car has no adjustments, so i just go through a lot tires). Its cheap, runs no matter what and doesn't look bad what more can i ask for. I have a 4 cylinder but its underpowered for the weight so it doesn't get the best gas milage (about 24) so i would get v6, if i were to buy this car again.
I live in an area tough on vehicles (freeze/thaw, plenty of salt and humid conditions) and I've had my 00 sonata for about a year, bought it at 63000 miles and its at 72000 now. Its been a great car, I had a solenoid pack go bad but other than that there's been nothing wrong with my car mechanically. I'd recomend it to anyone. Thanks hyandai!
Love my car, although it seems like when one thing needs repair, so does another.
I have owned this car for six years. alternator, starter, 3 sensors, serpentine belt, timing belt, battery, brakes, speed control sensor, o2 sensor, plugs, wires, and oil changes. Probably forgot something.
