Report Receipt Date:
NHTSA Campaign:
99V178
Summary:
Passenger vehicles equipped with automatic transmissions. The automatic transmission pressure control solenoid valve seals can allow transmission fluid to leak. This leakage can result in reduced pressure application to the clutches, brake, and kickdown servo, allowing them to slip. This slippage causes the vehicle not to accelerate, or not accelerate as expected, when the driver presses the accelerator pedal.
Consequence:
Remedy:
Dealers will replace the pressure control solenoid valve. Owner notification was scheduled to begin during July 1999. Owners who do not receive the free remedy within a reasonable time should contact Hyundai at 1-800-829-9956.
