2001 Hyundai Elantra 4 cyl Two Wheel Drive Automatic 120, 00 miles
Few months back I was having some brake work done and the Mechanic suggested I have a transmission flush since it had never been done and it was dark. A few days after getting my car back it started to have a problem I never experienced before. I will be driving along and the car will feel like it doesn't want to shift up. There will be a hard clunk/jerk and my engine light will go on immediately after. I am usually going between 35-40 miles an hour when this happens. I will be qable to continue driving but it feels like (when you drive a manual) it is not in a higher gear but needs to be? And if I come to a stop light in this condition and the light then turns green. The car moves very slowly at first in reapplying the gas to continue forward. Many times, if I pull over and turn the car off and restart after a few minute wait, the engine light is off and it drives fine until the next time it happens. I took it back only a few days and the mechanic said the fluid needed to be "topped" off. It has continued to do this anyway. It can go days without or do it 2/3 times in one day.
have the same problem?
