Hyundai Problems

Engine May Stall or Fail to Start Due to a Failed Crankshaft Position Sensor

Check Engine Light and Transmission Won't Shift Correctly

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.
