Well, let's do a couple of things. First is your vehicle a GL Sedan, GS hatch Back or L Hatch Back?
Next, there may be a recall for this very thing......I have attached it. Please contact the dealer to see if it applies to you. The recall does involve the Throttle Body and the problem causes high idle. No guarantees, but worth checking into. Contact the dealer, Service Department and provide them with our VIN and they will be able to tell you if it applies to you.
While checking on those, I have attached 4 Safety recalls you can check on also.
Recalls are normally paid by the dealer at no cost to the consumer.
Next, since you can not probably do this until Monday, please go to Auto Zone or O'Reilly's and for FREE they can pull the codes to the car. Most important: Once they check your codes, if they find something and you don't get it fixed and need to get back with us, please make sure you tell us exactly what the code was, number and all. Example, if the code was E0568 O2 Sensor bad. Then make sure you give us all of that. While there for FREE also they can bring their tester out and check your battery, alternator and starter.
As for the transmission - I don't think this has anything to do with each other but why did you know it was the transmission and not the clutch that needed replacing?
Okay, do the above - some will have to wait until Monday I am sure but do what you can and get back with me on the information and results.
POSITIVE CRANKCASE VENTILATION (PCV) HOSE RELOCATION AND HEATED THROTTLE BODY INSTALLATION - CAMPAIGN 047
This bulletin describes the steps necessary to replace and relocate the PCV hose and install a heated throttle body on certain 2000 and 2001 model year Accents.
While driving at a steady throttle opening for an extended period of time during extremely cold ambient temperatures (below approximately -5 F -20 C with high humidity), moisture in the combustion blow-by gases traveling through the PCV valve and hose may freeze, blocking the PCV hose. If the PCV hose freezes, combustion chamber blowby gases are forced to exit the valve cover and enter the air intake hose through the breather hose. Because the breather hose enters the air intake hose before the throttle body, moisture in the combustion chamber blowby gases may freeze inside the throttle body idle speed control circuit and in the throttle body bore, resulting in a higher than normal engine idle speed and the throttle valve not closing fully.
All 2000 model year Accents and 1.5 liter
2001 model year Accents produced through February 13, 2001 and all 1.6 liter
2001 model year Accents produced through June 5, 2001 which are registered and operated in the 23 affected cold weather states listed below.
