What is the procedure to change the transmission fluid on a '97 Hyundai Elantra?

AnswerManual trans: remove the filler plug (high up on the drivers side of the car... looking at it from underneath) stick a thin hose attached to a fluid pump into the trans until it touches the bottom then suck the old fluid out. then fill to the bottom of the fill plug hole with the correct oil (75W-80W gear oil), replace the filler plug.

Automatic trans: remove the drain plug on the pan, drain into a container, remove pan, clean or replace filter/screen, replace pan, fill with correct oil (not common Dexron II or III -- Hyundai ATF SP-II or Chrsyler spec 7176).

How do you replace the headlight bulb located on a 2001 Hyundai Elantra?

Only answer needed from an owner of a 2001 Hyundai Elantra GLS, having had to change headlight bulbs: After you open the hood, there is a black cap to screw off, now you are dealing with the light closest to the grill if you are replacing low beams. Now, pull out the plug with wires, then undo the spring clip, then remove old bulb. Place new bulb in, replace spring clip, reinsert wires. On the driver side, you will most likely have to take the plastic piece around the battery out, which means dealing with 4 screws, all on top, then turning a hose tip away from the light to get enough room to do the same. CAUTION: The bulbs are pressurized, be careful in handling bulbs, and it is advised not to directly touch the new bulb with your skin.

When replacing the spring, place one side under screw and use needle nose pliers to place the other edge under the screw. I used hemostats and this was the only way I could get the spring in place. Hold with pliers and then tighten the last screw with the other hand. This was on passenger side, the washer reservoir was in the way a little. I'm an over 50 woman so should be a breeze.

How you change wheel bearings on a 97 Hyundai Elantra?

I'm not sure about the '97 model, but on a '96 it is a relatively simple process to change the REAR wheel bearings. The bearings are contained in a sealed hub; you have to replace the entire unit. Once the brake caliper is moved out of the way you remove the small Phillips head screw that retains the brake disc. Remove the cover over the axle bolt with a screw driver and then unpin the locking tab on the nut. Undo the nut and the entire hub can be pulled off quite easily. Replace the hub with the new one and put the remainder of the parts back together.

Happy maintaining,Nick

Check Engine Light

Why would the check engine light of a 1995 Hyundai Elantra 1.6 come on when driving but go out if you hit a bump?

Most likely the cause is a loose wire somewhere in the car's wiring harness related to the computer system that operates all of the sensors that operate on the car's engine. I had a 95 Elantra, love it went great, cheap on gas. Butone day the check engine light came on and then never left. It was always on, no apparent problems though then and 3 month later the car took fire. Total loss. Dont know if related but that's my story....

Wiring diagram for 2000 hyudai elantra radio?

(Q) Is this to upgrade the factory radio/stereo?

If Yes, I was in the same position. And I went and purchased the stereo first. The dealership offered kits, and they ask make/model and year of the car. I was able to choose from two different kits, that basically handle the wire-mapping of the 2000 elantra, automagically. I got my new stereo installed, and have been happy with it ever since. Hope that helps.

How do you change the factory stereo in a 2000 Hyundai Elantra GXE?

Got this hint on another board and its answers all your questions!

Goto www.hmaservice.com (Hyundai webtech 2000) Set the Model Year and engine drop-downs on the top of the page and then click Search on the far right. Try entering the search kewords "dashboard", "interior" and/or "radio" (leave all items as the default values)

["dashboard" worked for my 2004 Elantra, and "radio" for my 2000 Elantra]

You should get a "Removal" or "Instruction" document that you can click on. This contains all the details of removing the dash assembly and radio.

Enjoy!

I went to the website and this is what you get although the pics didn't seem to work here. I ran into some snags where there was not nearly enough info and so I added a bit between steps three and four.

REMOVAL AND INSTALLATION

AUDIO

1.

Disconnect the battery negative terminal.

2.

Remove the shift lever boot and the rheostat assembly using a (-) driver.

3.

Remove the center facia panel's 2 mounting screws. (2EA)

At this point it is going to tell you to pull off the facia panel. You will want to

get down and unscrew the heater control cable down near the gas pedal.

There are two screws holding it in place. One is holding the cable casing

and the other is holding a white piece that swivels attached to the cable.

Once these are free the facia piece should come free. If you do not do this you'll only have about a half inch of play and will probably break a clip yanking on stuff. You can do the rest without removing

all of the wire assemblies attached to the facia panel it is a little in the way

but manageable.

4.

Disconnect the heater control cable and connectors (6EA), and then remove the center facia panel.

5.

Remove the audio mounting screws (4EA) and remove the audio.

6.

Door Panels and Handles

How do you remove a door panel and handle to repair the window in a '00 Hyundai Elantra?

I am in the same situation and yet do not know, but I did a first easy call to Hyundai service department, and they were very nice and told me some. I plan on calling them again or even going by their place. You should do the same.

My 2000 elantra (rear power window) has ~6 screws:

1 -- in door latch pocket 1 -- in arm rest pocket under rubber gromet 2 -- in upper forward edge of door panel 2 -- in upper back edge of door panel

it also has ~5 captured plastic snaps along the bottom. these are the typical press-in but have a flat head that is captured in little plastic fork brackets that are glued onto the backside of the door panel.

remove all the screws carefully remove the plastic snaps from the door body(I used a door panel tool, a flat fork like tool) (I damaged one snap and one catpuring bracket also came off) (Dealership suggested door panel snap brackets can disengage from the snaps via sliding, but upon panel removal, I don't see how it is possible, I think snaps are intended as sacrificial items.)

wobble door panel loose until you can access door latch rods on interior door handle. I think there was excess black sealant keeping the door panel well attached to the door frame; It tore the vapor barrier some, no big deal I think... (Maybe the vapor barrier is captured around the latch assembly, not sure)

Once door panel is mostly loose, There are pink plastic clevis's that rotate off the latch rods to free the rods from the interior door handle.

disconnect the electrical up/down window switch (from the arm-rest portion) from the regulator motor...

I face replacing the power window regulator... I understand that the bracket on the lower window edge unbolts to the regulator carraige, then the window removes upwards. (I don't expect to remove the window but to wedge it in place while removing the regulator.... we'll see)

unbolting the regulator/motor assembly from the door frame, it is supposed? to be removed out the bottom?

The lift cable on mine has clearly failed and wrapped around the motor/capstan and is severely kinked... (loose lift cable end is flopping around)

My regulator has two lift cables that enter on the top of the regulator, some regulators have one cable on the top and one cable on the bottom

ANSWER

In regards to the door handle/locking mechanism area. My car is a 1999 I think, but there is a good chance they are the same. I had to slide the door handle assembly inward (towards the car as the door is open) while putting a flathead screwdriver under the inner side to sort of pop it up slightly. Then when I hit it inwards (to slide it) it popped right out (after removing the screw of course) and then I could access the door latch and locking mechanism rods.

Car Batteries

How do you go about tracing an electrical problem that is draining the battery on a Hyundai Elantra?

If you are not comfortable or knowledgeable with the electrical system of a car, have it checked by a mechanic. If the above solution isn't your problem, you can isolate what's drawing the current using this method. You need a multimeter capable of reading AMPS. Remove the ground battery cable and place the multimeter between the battery cable and the battery. Make sure you DON'T run your car like this!! With the car OFF, see how much current is being drawn from the battery. Some current draw is normal, as your cars computer and radio memory functions need power to retain their settings. Start by removing a single fuse and replacing it, each time checking the current on the multimeter. By process of elimination, if you pull the fuse on the circuit that's causing the trouble, the current draw will drop. There's your troubled circuit. Then you'd need a wiring diagram, which you can find on hmaservice.com, and trace down the short circuit.

Why is your radiator fan not running?

You should check the fuse, and also do a computer diognostic. You could need a new radiator fan relay or wiring or diode wiring, or a new fan altogether.

How do you reset the radio for a 1995 Hyundai Elantra?

Input your identification number by pressing the preset buttons in sequence. The identification number is on the User Card that came with your Hyndai. If an incorrect identification number is entered 3 times, it will not be possible to cancel the incorrect number until one hour has elapsed with the ignition switch in the "ACC" position and the radio turned on. After one hour,press and hold the BAND(FM/AM)button for 3 seconds or more until the incorrect number disappears and CODE is displayed.

Cruises and Ocean Liners

Whats the best way to compare cruise prices?

AnswerWhen you're comparing cruise prices, be sure you're talking about the exact same cruise line, ship and cabin type. Sometimes a cruise just a day or two later, or a similar cabin on the same ship, can cost twice as much. If you're not familiar with all the nuances, get a Travel Agent who is. Travel Agents who specialize in cruises can negeotiate volume discounts that are far below any special fare an individual could get. Sometimes a simple change, like departing on a Thursday instead of Monday, will reduce the price by 25% or more!

Be sure when you're comparing prices that you're including insurance, taxes, transfers, port charges and handling fees or delivery. Also, if airfare is included, make sure it's comparable. Be careful. Some mega-sites like Expedia, Cruise.co.uk, Travelocity and Orbitz include fees in their quote, others do not. Trip insurance will add to the cost but it's a must for expensive vacations. Taxes can increase the price by 10-15% or more. Transfers are the transportation costs you pay to get from the airport to the ship. Some companies include them, and some do not. Depending on the city, transfers can add another $60 per person to your fare. Port charges, like airport fees, are not optional. Finally, some websites charge you for handling or delivery of your tickets. If you're leaving in a few days, it may be worth paying the Fed Ex fee, but you should at least know what it is up front. You can also search for promos and discounts offered by other cruise lines. Surely this would save you tons of moneyl

Check Engine Light
Hyundai Elantra
1995-2005 Chevy Cavaliers

Why would a 2000 Hyundai Elantra's check engine light stay on while the car runs fine?

Take it to Auto Zone and have the codes read for free. had a 95 Elantra, love it went great, cheap on gas. But one day the check engine light came on and then never left. It was always on, no apparent problems though then and 3 month later the car took fire. Total loss. Dont know if related but that's my story.... I had a 2000 Elantra. The check engine light came on and nothing was wrong with it. A couple of months later the light was still on and the exhaust manifold cracked. There was a recall on 2000 exhaust manifolds for this car. I have a 2001 Elentra and the "check engine light" came on for no apparent reason. I did some research on the web and saw that there were two common problems with the Elentra First if you didn't tighten the gas cap enough. This problem would go away after the enxt fill up. Unfortunately, this was not my circumstance. Second The other problem was if you "topped off" the tank. This can cause a small amount of gas overflow which will trigger the check engine light. This situation will clear itself in a few weeks. Well, I thought about going to the dealership but I knew they would want to fix something! So I waited for 2 or 3 weeks and the light went away all by itself. If I had gone to the dealership, I was not under warranty, I know this would have cost me lots of bucks for nothing. My check engine light comes on ramdomly, sometimes after fueling and the cap PUT BACK ON CORRECTLY AND NO GAS SPILLAGE, sometimes for no apparent reason. It's orange, not red, and has stayed on as long as a month, then turned off for longer. Never any engine problem. I know there's a recall on the exhaust manifold but I didn't get it fixed because dealers are too far unless an emergency, and last time there, they "discovered" $500+ of work I don't need. If the check engine light comes on within a couple of days of pumping gas and the color of the light is orange then most probably it is because the gas cap was not tightened fully. You should tighten the gas cap until you hear atleast 3 clicks. In this situation the light may or may not go off. If the light does not go away even after 3 days or the next tank of gas then you can manually reset the EMS chip by disconnecting the battery for about 5 mins. If the engine check light is red in color, you are in trouble. Do not drive any further and pull over. To diagnose you will need a OBD code reader or take it to a mechanic. == ==

Turn Signals and Hazard Lights

Where is the location of the turn signal flasher for a '97 Hyundai Elantra?

In the steering column. The flasher is uder the dash by the steering column, howver, they typically do NOT go bad. The most common cause for turn signal failure is the hazard switch on the dash, about $35.00 from Hyundai.

I can't speak for the 1997, but my 1996 Elantra wagon's flasher is located WAY under the dash about a foot to the right of the fuse box and to the left of the steering column. Locate the foot rest/pad on the drivers left and then go straight up from there. (You'll have to lay upside-down on the floor to actually get to find it/change it.)

The flasher is installed on a black connector block about 6" long and 2" wide. My flasher was still the factory installed unit and it has the letters "BL-10Z DOT" on the back and a blue plastic label on the top with a bunch of numbers, but most importantly the word "HAZARD" (as in hazard or emergency lights) on it.

To remove it squeeze the black prongs together and you should be able to pull the unit out. The Hyundai dealership wanted $57 for a replacement, so I used a 3rd party replacement that doesn't have the plastic prongs, but since it was only $15, I figure I can still buy a lot of duct tape if needed. <grin>

Note that you do NOT have to remove the dash, however, there is an "access" panel directly below the steering column, which if removed MAY give you some more light. But again, it does not allow access to the flasher. (To remove the access panel, just put your hand in the cutout and pull down.)

And finally, I checked a 3rd party service manual for help and it did NOT say anything more than that the flasher was located inside the car (the passenger compartment), so you may want to save your money.

Good luck!

How do you replace the fuel filter located on a 1997 Hyundai Elantra GLS?

To replace the fuel filter, first you have to relieve the fuel system pressure. Take off your rear seat cushion, and there should be a black oval plastic thing in the center. Peel it off, and disconnect the connectors. Then start your car until it stalls. Pop open your hood; The fuel filter is located on the firewall, on the drivers side, below the brake booster. it is a black canister, and should have a metal line running out the top and bottom. It is fairly difficult to get to, and I found it helpful to disconnect your air intake tubing at the throttle body. The top comes off fairly easily with a 10mm ratchet, however, I haven't figured out how to remove the bottom. Sorry!
