I have a 2001 Accent GL 1.6L Automatic.

Yesterday it started acting up on the freeway. I was driving about 50 during traffic hour when it started revving. I got off the freeway and moved to 35mph on surface streets, the revving continued at lower speeds but much worse (4-5k rpms going 10-15mpg). Doesn't seem to do it in idle or park. If i shut the car off it'll drive fine for a while then start acting up but when I was driving, after awhile, it did return to normal.

What could cause the problem? TPS? Transmission? Sensor of some sort? Any Ideas?

yup that would be trans slipping. sorry :(

sounds like clutch pack gone. guessing it did a bit of lurching?

any ECU codes would be helpful to confirm diagnosis.

The trans won't thro a code not for the earler year accents. There no computer senors in the trany where the clutch pack and valve body is. So in short you need a new trans, or have yours rebuilt.
