Red face 2010 Santa Fe transmission skipping occasionally

Hello...I have a 2010 Santa Fe GLS V6 with a little over 94,000 miles. The transmission has been skipping occasionally....when slowing down to make a turn...in reverse...in drive and accelerating from a stop. There's no real predictable pattern and some days it will not skip at all.

I usually DIY for car repairs so I'm looking for some advice. I haven't changed the transmission fluid since owning the vehicle. I bought it used with about 25,000 miles on it.

Is there a way to check the fluid level on a 2010? Would a fluid replacement help with the skipping issues?

Thanks!

If trans was proper fill when new,, it still be full currently, unless you have some sort of leak that would allow ATF to leak, and you would see ATF drip on floor..

You can inspect oil level via cap on the bottom corner of trans' side pan.. running in PARK,, remove plug and inspcet level,,, should be high enough to make opening, and maybe trickle out..

After that, scan be a start, find out if TCM seen anything out of parameter that would set DTC.. Then reset transmission' Adaptive learn while good and hot, then proceed with mild drive to re-start the learn process... run with it from there

Take and clean paint from the ground cable connection points first though,, negative cable to fender, ground at left frame rail to trans case, and 3rd at right side of engine compartment

@1250flint
Skipping = slipping, or ??? I don't understand the use of that word in this context. Can only guess -- not a good idea before responding.
Q: What is the build date on the door frame of your vehicle?

Bump, as per Canderson

That year has a batch of bad trannys installed. Plenty of threads on this point. Build info is on the the drivers door pillar (at least on mine including plant)

Good Luck

I guess 'slipping' would be a good way to describe it also. It feels like the gears are shifting at the wrong time. A mild version of what would happen if you tried to go into reverse while moving forward.

The build date on the door frame is Jul/17/10

Thanks

Ouch. Your build date is right BEFORE we stopped seeing these issues in August 2010 builds. I assume you're somewhere in North America, but you (ahem) neglected to provide us with location info. Since you used "miles", am guessing you are in the U.S.
2010 transmission prior to that date was prone to solenoid issues.
There is a firmware fix that worked for some owners -- must be applied by the dealer. I suspect that the new firmware pulses the solenoids in an attempt to move them successfully. It's worth starting there before you get involved in bigger issues. Some transmissions had to be swapped with rebuilds to resolve this kind of thing.

BIG question. Are you the original owner? If so, you are still within the 10 years and (barely) within the 100K drivetrain warranty that covers this, so get that thing to a dealer pronto before the odo rolls over to 100K. If you are 2nd (or ?) owner, any chance you got the Hyundai Certified 10/100 as the 2nd owner?

canderson,

Yes, I'm in Virginia, U.S. I'm not the original owner but I think I'm the 2nd owner. I'll have to check on the warranty. Does the 100K drivetrain warranty apply only to the original owner usually?

Thanks

Yes. The original 10yr/100Kmi (10/100) is normally for the first owner only. However, dealers will sometimes extend this to a 2nd owner to sweeten the deal, or it is also possible to buy a pre-owned with Hyundai certification that covers 10/100. Not having any idea of your circumstances, no way to know from here.

I suggest at that many miles do a transmission drain and fill with the proper fluid and add in 1 bottle of Lubegard red. I did this on my 2010 Santa Fe and it eliminated any hard or delayed shifts. They say the transmission fluid is for life but in the manual any towing or stop and go traffic is due for replacement. Don;t do the dealer flush as that might loosen some dirt in the fluid and could cause more issues. Just a drain and fill with the Lubegard red and you should be fine according to my experience.

I second the pan drain/refill because I've fixed problems that way, but I favor using Hyundai/Kia OEM fluid to avoid possible questions with mixing different manufacturers' products. If it was good enough for the car when it was built, it still is now. Some may not agree but that's just my opinion.
