      Vehicle must have stock size wheels & tires as the
      computer is programmed for that & that only

      Now you possibly ruined the transaxle & will be out
      another four grand plus the silly wheels & such

      Unless the tire dia is the same as it left the factory
      I doubt a dealer could program much-you could
      stop by & ask

      Ask a tech in the service bay,not the people out
      front in customer service their useless

    Auto Manuel won't change back into Drive. The stick will shift but not change back.
    It happened while I was practicing going into Manuel Mode. It shifted back but now when I move the stick into any position and bring it back into Drive it stays in Manuel. How do I get it back into Drive.

      Locate a trusted and reputable repair shop in your area to provide a thorough inspection. You don't need to guess and throw money at the problem.

      Use the 'Find-A-Shop' feture on the AutoMD website and the Better Business Bureau listings (www.bbb.org) to assist.

    My 2010 Genesis Coupe 3.8L V6 has about 64k miles, and an auto transmission with a semi manual mode that I rarely use. Generally only from a cold start, the transmission will shift pretty hard in the lower gears, and the RPMs will drop below 500 when coming to a ...

      You'd better use a professional Hyundai diagnostic tool, so relatively safe, I think GDS VCI Diagnostic Tool on the good, GDS VCI Diagnostic Tool( http://www.aobd2shop.com/.../...gnostic-tool.html) is an advanced service system that provides comprehensive coverage for all Hyundai vehicles including all Hybrid cars. GDS provides complete diagnostics, analysis and reprogramming capabilities as well as a huge library of technical, service and repair information.of course, if you believe that you can solve the problem yourself, or consult a professional mechanic,hope it is helpful to you.

      I would have the catalytic converter checked out. Have vacuum gauge connected to test the vacuum at idle and when the car is revved. Old cats can cause issues with maintaining vehicle speed. If the cat core has melted down a bit, it will cause restriction. Remember, in an engine; what goes in must come out. If not enough air can escape from the exhaust, not enough will be allowed into the engine.
