Lost ALL gears today, 2004 accent auto.
« on: February 28, 2013, 08:49:58 PM »

Car is 2004 Accent 1.6L auto. Wife was driving it when it made some "metal" noise and lost all drive. Goes through the gears, but will not move a bit at all, idles fine. 107k miles.

So, I know my way around cars, mostly BMW's though, but they are ALL 5speed cars and I have no idea where to even start with Auto tranny?

After work I plan on jacking the car up to check the axles (were recently replaced, both sides because of clicking cv joints), to make sure they are okay etc.

Now, what specific things can I check / look for? Is there a tranny filter/pan that I can drop to check if there are metal shavings inside?

Are there any linkage things that I can check as well?

Could there be a sensor or switch or solenoid that I can verify?

I want to cover all the basics first before going any further, as in removing the tranny or taking it in for a rebuild.

Has the trans ever been serviced? The fluid needs changing every 30,000 miles. If it was never serviced, it probably needs to be rebuilt or replaced.
