Thanks to you guys for the info.
To saturntech9: no, the car will not shift no matter how much or little gas I give it nor does it matter which gear I put it in (1st, 2nd, 3rd or OD). I will check into the back pressure test.
To freemba: the car does jerk a little when it jumps into gear, kinda like if I was driving a manual. I can back out of my drive way fine, but when I put it in OD and start to accelerate I hear a "click" under my dash, the car jerks/jumps into 3rd and then I'm bogged down on power with high rpm, sucking up my gas. Here's the kicker, it may do it 3 out of 5 times. 2 times it will run like a champ.
I did a quick scan at O'Reillys and I don't have the code off hand. I can get it.
Also, my fluid, if anything, maybe over filled. Would that cause a problem? I added a fraction of a quart of ATF 2-3 weeks ago, because I thought the dipstick showed low. The shifting problem started about 5 days ago.
Anybody know a dealer with overstock of 2012 Elantra GLS desperate for a sale?
Thanks for all your help!
