Hyundai Elantra QuestionsRefine by vehicle
My Elantra has 167k on it. I actually had a new transmission put in at 38K because of a factory defect. Havent had any problems since. When I am giving the car gas and the tachometer is between 1 and 1.5 the entire car vibrates. When the car idles it does so below 1. I didnt think anything of this until my friend was teaching me how to drive manual this weekend, and the same feeling I feel in my car is the same vibration i felt if I let up off the clutch too much before her manual would stall. Its not a violent shake - its that vibrating that happens right before the violent shake and the engine stalls out in the manual.
This transmission has not been touched since it was put in and has 129k on it. I am wondering if I need to get a transmission flush but I was reading if there are already problems with the transmission, a flush might exacerbate those problems.
Any help would be greatly appreciated.

I can lock door with transponder but then I can not unlock to get into car. I have to use the key to get in and that causes the alarm to go off.

How many freeze plugs are on a Hyundai Elantra? Do I need to replace all the plugs or just the corroded one? I have 95,000 miles on this car and don't plan to keep the car more than a year, so I want to keep my repairs reasonable. Any other things I should ask about when I get quoted for this repair? I want to be informed so have the proper repairs done and don't get ripped off.

When I was trying to jump a old car with a V8, my Elantra shut itself off. And all the electronics were dead. I can jump it very easily and drive it. But sometimes after I reach my destination, I will be able to restart it. And sometimes it will all the electronics will be dead again. But it will jump again very easily. When shutting the car off, if I hear a electronic sound, like a fuse shorting or something like unplugging a TV cord from the wall, then I know it isn't going to restart, and the electronics are dead again, requiring another restart. Not sure if it is the computer, alternator solenoid, fuse, or a relay.
No tran indicator light on dash Is this fixable or other probs
When I use turn signals the dashboard lights go off. If I jiggle around the turn signal stick, dash lights flicker off & on, and if I get it in exact right spot, dash lights come back on until I use turn signal again. They've also started going off now without even using turn signals. Why?
I pulled all fuses that are for any & all lights including turn signals but brake lights still stayed on when car is off. That didn't work. So I had to disconnect car battery to make them turn off. And dash lights turn off when I use turn signals then have to jiggle turn signal stick until dash board lights will come back on
This all happened at same time..one light went out, other stays on forever. Not on recall list. Cruise control went out too.

When having to stop or slow down before going uphill, my car loses speed. Even when I press the gas pedal to the floor, it will not get passed 40 mph. Otherwise, the car drives great. The check engine light is on, but had it checked out and it is on because of an Emission issue. Does the problem of loses speed going uphill mean I need to replace the transmission ?
