      Yes I see that the part can be purchased with part # 467902-E000 Sale Price: $53.51
      List Price: $69.05

      Ok thats the good news. I do see labor posted to replace the cable at 9.2 hours but I cannot find a step by step procedure in my information systems so I cannot say why the labor hours are so high. You have to ask them about this. Maybe the tranny has to be removed for some reason to replace the cable. I have heard of stranger things.

    Plastic insert on shift gate is sticky or sticking. Gear selection works but the plastic makes a cracking crunching nois
    That's about it.

      Several possibilities; shift cable is worn / faulty, neutral switch / range selector is worn / faulty. Needs a thorough inspection to determine the specific cause or component to be replaced. If the shift selector plastic part is faulty - this is a dealer part department item only.

      The other parts are readily available from these many on-line sources, www.partsgeek.com, www.rockauto.com, www.discountautoparts.com, www.autopartswarehouse.com, www.jcwhitney.com - to list only a few possibilities.
      In fact, they (RockAuto) list the shift cable from around $85.00 and the neutral safety switch / range sensor from around $27.00 for your vehicle.

    What is wrong when the clutch is pushed down it makes a noise and shakes
    When its driving it is fine but when shifting or at a stop is when it is a problem

      Typically, this condition indicates a worn out clutch release or throw out bearing. To replace the bearing the transmission is removed and the pressure plate, friction disc and bearing are replaced at the same time as a clutch kit - to repair.

    How urgent repair needed
    dealer states drive shaft boot the problem.

      Need more information - does the dealer state the CV boot is damaged, torn, or missing? If yes, then the CV boot must be replaced soon (maybe not urgent) to prevent dirt / road gunk from entering the CV (constant velocity) joint on the front drive axle.
      The CV boot kits are inexpensive and easy to install - the kit comes with the new boot and two band clamps. The correct repair would involve inspection of all four CV boots; two inner (next to the transmission) and two outer near the wheels. Replace any boots which are torn, cut, missing the clamps - as the dirt ingress can quickly destroy the more expensive CV joint.

      The parts are readily available from these many on-line sources, www.partsgeek.com, www.rockauto.com, www.discountautoparts.com, www.autopartswarehouse.com, www.jcwhitney.com - to list only a few possibilities.
      In fact, they (RockAuto) list the CV boot kit from around $11.30 for your vehicle.

      Replace the vehicle speed sensor (VSS) - located on the transmission housing. Easy to replace - one wire connection and one fastener to remove.

    Car won't start and will reset.
    100,400 miles. This started happening two days ago when leaving Orlando for my trip back home. After I got gas, I tried to crank the engine and absolutely nothing happened. No sound, no lights, nothing. I called my girlfriend's dad and he said to try pushing the ...

      Check the connections at the battery and here is a mechanic's tip.... When it does not start, turn the headlights on. Now get out of the car and raise the hood. Confirm that the headlights are NOT on. While watching the headlights, wiggle the battery terminal connectyions and see if suddenly the headlights come on and if they do then you know that there is a poor connection at the battery.

      There has been a service bulletin for that type of concern. It involves an update for the transmission control module.

      A/T Controls - ECM Update For Shift Improvements
      Number: 09-AT-005
      This TSB provides the procedure to update the Powertrain Control Module with the most recent shift schedule calibration for 2009 Sonata vehicles with automatic transaxles.

      Thank you for the quick response, Jimm! I'm assuming my Hyundai dealership would be aware of this TSB. Can you tell me if this is an expensive fix, or more details about what they will need to do when I take my car in for service? I would just like to be aware of what they will need to do so I can monitor the situation better. Thanks so much again for all of your assistance!

    Why won't my car start or shift out of park?
    A few days ago my car wouldn't start. I figured it was due to the cold since in was negative 12 degrees without the wind chill nearing 50 below. I left it overnight and the next day it still wouldn't start. I could hear it chugging and trying to turn over but still ...

      Besides the fact that it will not come out of park with your foot on the brake, you did not clarify what else does not work in the car with the new battery installed. You turn the key to "on" and what? Does it crank? Do the signals work? Tell me the details. I understand the shifter, what else, just the shifter?

      With my key in the ignition, the indicator on my dashboard that tells me my doors are open will light up and make the dinging noise that goes along with it. That is the only thing it seems to be capable of doing.

    Transmission is pulling, check engine light indicated sensor problem mechanic said we need new transmission.151000 miles
    I purchased a used transmission for Hyundai Tucson 2007. New trans is from 2008 tuscon cost $704.00, it has 22,000 miles, additional $200.00 for 24 mo. warranty. Was this a good fit/deal? Also now I am being told that rebuilt or remanufactured is better than used ...

      First question - what is the specific fault code? Which sensor is suspected? Second question - what does the 'transmission pulling' refer to?

      This is a legal question. You would like to click "undo" but don't know how to get everyone in agreement. You ordered a used transmission and have given credit card info that likely was already processed. If it were me I guess I would want to make a deal with the person I bought it from. I would give them the shipping money and some add'l money for their trouble. The $200 warranty I would not pay for because they did not have a loss yet. It's gonna be sticky no matter. You can call your credit card company and get advice?

      I need to see it for this. Hard to say without data. Plug in a code reader and see if any fault codes are stored and then post the code number here. Amazon has code reader for $20. I don't know what the trans has to do with your stalling problem but if you do have a trans problem that the shop discovered, I don't think they are being straight with you as far as why the trans is related to stalling. I can't see it. I see other things that we hear about all the time like a bad cam sensor or crank sensor, a bad mass air flow sensor or a vacuum leak, etc.

      Thank you. Have a Happy Thanksgiving Day.
      I replaced one of the sensors already think it was the crank sensor.
      Will check your suggestions.
