Di I need to remove anything to replace it?

My Hyundai has always had a severe shift but not often. Now it won't shift out of 3rd and the severe shift happens when starting at low speed. The diagnosis is to replace A transmission shift solenoid at nearly $800.

Do I need to do something in special or can I just take out the hose and put a new one??? or do i need to vacuum the system first????

car fail emission

My transmission went out and I bought a used transmission and they do not match 100%. The front axle doesnt look the same on the new one. The old one front axle part is smaller than the new transmission. What years will fit the 2003 Santa fe? Or does it have to be from another 03 santa fe to fit right? Do I have to change out any parts? etc. HELP

I've been offered a high milage (224000mi)Santa Fe for near nothing ($500.00) It's been well taken care of and feels good, looks good and all seems to work well. Rebuilt transmission at about 150000 and new brakes at about 165000.
I expect that the engine will wear out soon so I'm curious as to the cost.
Thanks

I can't find any information in the owner's manual

i bought the car used with 172k seems the car has a few issues:

1) the car seems to stall or trys to stall when in drive so i have to place it in neutral to prevent that from happening then in drive when pulling off.

2) it seems to idle high like if the car shuts off on me and i try to crank it back up i have to keep giving it gas as it's trying to turn over or fire up. once it does start up my rpm is in the 3000 like as if my foot is on the gas to rev up the engine.

3) if i'm out all day driving or at a stand still my temp gauge is going up like near or a cpl times in the red but as soon as i start driving w/o stopping it will come back down to 1/2 mark.

lastly i've noticed when my foot is on the brakes in drive the car will all of a sudden jurk fwd an times my foot can be off the gas pedal and the car will drive fwd on it's own.

thanks for all help in answering my questions to anyone

looking to replace rotors on my santa fe

Is it safe to drive without damaging anything else?

When the car is driven @ a steady speed, mostly @ highway speeds (even w/ cruise control on) it will jolt, feels like very abrupt hiccup or cough (lack of a better way to discribe it). It is so abrupt and forceful that it scares you. When it does this there is no change in the speed of the vehicle. The car has over 200K on it and it has done this almost from day one, now it is doing it more frequently. It is so inconsistant and unpredictable. Could this be the catalytic convert?

Dealer says since they sprayed the frame during the recall, they are not responsible for subframe corrrosion, CV joint fell out, tie-bars broke, new tire destroyed etc. Any suggestions? If we replace the subframe and do the other repairs, will that be considered a safe repair? What should it cost? thanks

the system is completly discharged now so i will be adding oil and refrigerant should we pull a vacum on the system first?
