Trans replaced or other issue

I replaced my clutch maybe 12000 miles ago. Used gl4 80-90 calling for 75-95. When driving it would kick out of 4th gear and almost impossible to get in reverse. Shortly after was very difficult getting into first and second to start off. Been noticing a leak which I think it's from one of the shaft seals( on the passenger side). After driving it like this for a while transmission fluid has has burning smell and now will barely accelerate in any gear. I'm thinking about replacing the transmission but wondering if it could be something minor before that

My car has 170000 mi

Experienced mechanics share their insights in answering this question :
Hi there. From the description you have provided, there is a combination of issues concerning the transmission and possibly the clutch again. The difficulty shifting and kicking out of 4th gear, would lead me to believe, the shift mechanism has been out of alignment since the clutch was replaced. This may have created undo pressure on the gears, resulting in excessive heat and burning the gear oil. Using the incorrect viscosity of gear oil, did not help. The axle shaft seal leaking, may just be the axle shaft seal is leaking. The vehicle barely accelerating in any gear, leads me to believe the clutch is slipping, again. I recommend having your vehicle’s, possible transmission replacement be properly diagnosed and repaired by a certified technician, such as one from YourMechanic.

2020 Hyundai Accent transmission problems could include shifting delays, grinding when accelerating, a feeling of shakiness, or whistling noises or a burning smell coming from beneath the hood.
The Accent`s 1.6-liter four-cylinder engine makes 120 horsepower and drives the front wheels through a continuously variable automatic transmission (CVT).
Hyundai Sonata Eco, Tucson, Veloster, Etc.

Plaintiffs Nicholas and Shawna Wylie alleged that dual-clutch transmissions contain a design defect in the transmission control module that caused the following vehicles to stop moving: Hyundai 2015-2017 Sonata Eco. Hyundai 2016-2017 Tucson.

Another appealing aspect of the Accent is that it can last a long time, which further enhances the great value it provides. This Hyundai model generally has a lifespan of about 200,000 miles or 13 years, which is above average in its class.
Hyundai Accent Pros

Good gas mileage: The 1.6-liter 4-cylinder engine of the 2022 model returned 33 mpg in independent tests by Consumer Reports. It`s pretty good on fuel economy, even with low horsepower under the hood.

Which is better: Hyundai Accent or Elantra? In comparison to the Accent, the Elantra has a better horsepower at 147. However, the Accent has incredible fuel economy with 41 highway MPG and 33 city MPG. Ultimately, you`ll spend roughly $5,000 less on the Accent and save time and money by visiting the gas station less.
Hyundai Powertech was established in 2001 as South Korea`s first automatic transmission specialist. It has plants in South Korea, China, and the United States. Its automatic transmissions are used in Hyundai, Kia, Dodge, and Jeep vehicles.
Hyundai Accent III 1.6i Specs

With a fuel consumption of 6.4 litres/100km – 44 mpg UK – 37 mpg US (Average), 0 to 100 km/h (62mph) in 10.2 seconds, a maximum top speed of 118 mph (190 km/h), a curb weight of 2277 lbs (1033 kgs), the Accent III 1.6i has a naturally-aspirated Inline 4 cylinder engine, Petrol motor.

If your fluid has never been changed before, replacing it with new fluid can cause the transmission to start slipping, even if it wasn`t slipping before. This is because the old fluid will contain clutch material from being in there over time and can actually be helping the transmission to still shift gears.
Though changing transmission fluid can`t fix mechanical problems, it does make for smoother shifts and can extend the life of your transmission. And even when manufacturers recommend fluid change intervals of 150,000 miles under normal conditions, it may be a good idea to change it more frequently.
In 2021, there was a class action settlement for certain Hyundai and Kia vehicles containing the 2.0L and 2.4L GDI Theta II engines. Specifically, that lawsuit extended the warranty (and offer reimbursements) if the engine experienced a connecting rod bearing failure within the rotating assembly.
Hyundai is ranked 11th in Motor Warranty Direct`s chart of most reliable used automatics.
Hyundai is recalling 53,142 cars and SUVs from the 2021 and 2022 model years equipped with an eight-speed dual-clutch automatic transmission due to concerns that transmission oil pump malfunction could trigger an improper fail-safe model reaction that causes the transmission to disengage.

Though Supposedly More Reliable, Hyundai`s New CVT Has Teething Problems. Some drawbacks of the CVT include a constant hum from the belt while it distributes power, and the potential for slippage as the belt runs across the pulleys.

A diagnostic test showed an issue with the fuel pump of my 2008 chevy Colorado; should I replace it?
ANSWER : Hello. If the diagnostic showed an issue with the fuel pump such as low pressure or a voltage issue then the pump itself will more than likely need to be replaced. The fuel cap would cause there to be an issue with the fuel emissions system but not with the pump. I would need to know what codes came up to be able to tell you for sure what is going on. If you need to have the pump replaced, consider YourMechanic, as a certified mechanic can come to you to [replace your fuel pump] https://www.yourmechanic.com/services/fuel-pump-replacement

Do i need to replace the receiver drier and/or the expansion valve when replacing the condenser assembly?
ANSWER : Replacing the system drier is absolutely essential. If the system has been open to the atmosphere (due to the leak in the condenser), the desiccant in the drier has been fully saturated with moisture. As far as the expansion valve, replacement is not normally implicated in a leak repair, in your case a leak in the condenser. To justify replacing the expansion valve, there would have to have been a diagnostic performed which proved a fault. If no diagnostic was performed, and there is no evidence of a fault, then it is pointless to replace the valve. But, again, drier replacement is absolutely essential. To add the drier to your order, you can simply add a note to the mechanic in your order and/or add it as a service (you will see a link that you can click on to "add services" or write in specific services). If you have further questions or concerns, do not hesitate to re-contact YourMechanic as we are always here to help you.

My car will not start just days after I got the airbag replaced. What would be the issue?
ANSWER : Hi there. I’m not quite certain that the replacement of the air bag would impact the vehicle’s ability to start; especially if the engine cranks over. It is possible that during the removal and installation that the battery cables may not have been removed. If this occurred, it may have blown a fuse to an ignition component. You might want to have a professional mobile mechanic visit you to complete a car is hard to start inspection, so they can pinpoint why your Mustang won’t fire-up.

When replacing the AC Compressor, do I need to replace both expansion valves as well or just the front
ANSWER : Hi there. Anytime you replace major air conditioning system components like the AC compressor, it’s recommended to purchase all supporting hardware and replace it at the same time. AC works as a series of individual components working efficiently together to create cool air that flows into your cabin. As such, if you’re replacing the front expansion valve, it’s a good idea to replace the rear at the same time. This increases overall efficiency of the system, reduces the potential of small component failure and allows the parts you replaced to last longer.

After repairs, SUV stalls after deceleration and idles
ANSWER : Using a scan tool to access any stored diagnostic trouble codes (DTCs) may give you some direction on this. I recommend cleaning the throttle body. TAC (throttle actuator control) or drive-by-wire throttles are very sensitive to dirty throttle bodies. You may want to bring the car back to where you had the repairs done to see if they can find any mistakes that were made. If you would rather have another professional technician check this, a certified mechanic from YourMechanic can come to your home or office to diagnose and repair the stalling issue.

Does the whole steering column need to be replaced in order to replace a fried steering column module?
ANSWER : I would ask the mechanic for the exact part number of the electronic component that he believes has failed. Or, at least have him "name" the part and indicate where in the column assembly the part resides. The steering column is made up of many parts, most of which are separately serviceable. As discussed below, limp mode (reduced power) has many, many causes. Consequently I would also ask the mechanic to explain to you EXACTLY how he arrived at his diagnosis and ALSO have him show you the exact test results, on a diagnostic tool, multi-meter, or scope, that has led him to conclude that the particular "module" has to be replaced. With no evidence and no intelligible confirmation you would be taking a risk.

YourMechanic does offer a reduced power (limp mode) diagnostic. If you request a reduced engine power diagnostic the responding certified mechanic will give you confirmation of the cause of the issue in your case. Typically, a vehicle’s powertrain control module (PCM) will have stored one or more diagnostic trouble codes that will identify the "general area" in which the fault lies in the engine management controls. Although the throttle control system is a common trouble area with reduced power, there are quite a few other components and systems that could come into play and, of course, there is always the possibility of multiple, or "coincident", faults. Here are some of the possibilities that YourMechanic dispatched technicians would consider:

Defective throttle position (TP) sensor
Defective oxygen sensor
Defective accelerator pedal position (APP) sensor
Loose or damaged wiring
Defective throttle body
Defective powertrain control module (PCM) (not typical; ONLY if a long, long list of other possibilities is ruled out)
Any fault/error that will affect drivability function
Any fault/error that will affect vehicle performance
A fault/error in the emissions system
A fault/error in the throttle control system
A fault/error in the transmission control system

If you request the recommended diagnostic the mechanic will get this resolved for you. If you have further questions or concerns, do not hesitate to re-contact YourMechanic as we are always here to help you.
