    When I am at a stop and in drive the car makes lunging or jumping movements.
    I only have this problem when the weather outside is hot ( about 88 degrees and above ). Early mornings and at night I have no problems what so ever. There are no warning lights on and the motor has 145,000 miles.

    Car suddenly slows down then wont switch gears
    My Hyundai will suddenly slow down on the highway. No matter how much you push on the gas it will not switch out of second gear. You stop the car, turn it off and then is fine. Sometimes there is no problem at all. No check lights are on.

    Why wont my car move? My automatic car wont even budge to go into gear and can't move.
    ll of a sudden the car shift went out. Is it the linkage? Transmission? Fuse? It started out that the care wouldn't go into park. Then not even a week later I can't even move the shifter. It is registering in neutral, but I can't even roll the car at all. It's like ...

    Dealer says I need my crank position sensor replaced. Is that the same as the crankshaft position sensor?
    They also are telling me it takes 2 hours to replace. The AutoMD says 24 minutes. Am I getting screwed here??

      There is a difference between the crank sensor and a cam sensor . In both cases they tell the ecm what the motor is doing for timing and other things . If your not sure if they are being fair or over charging take it to someone else . If your doctor told you they needed to do a heart trans plant on you would you go ask someone else . Mech's are car doctors . Some good some bad .

      For the start up issue when was your last tune up( plugs, wires, filters)? could also be the gas your using. The shaking around 60 could be one or both CV axles are going out.

      Poor fuel economy can be due to a great number of things. Even if the check engine light is not flashing or illuminated, there still may be a stored fault code. Have the OBD system scanned for free - at any local auto part store - then post a reply with the results for further assistance.

    2005 accent transmission slipping at higher speeds on acceleration
    158000 fluid looks light brown with grit

      You need to drain and refill your transmission fluid asap. The slipping is caused most likely from low fluid level from a leak. the color indicates that the fluid is near the end of its life.....now when you say "grit", are these pieces of metal? If so you may have a serious internal transmission problem that needs further investigation.
