Wifes car.
Well maintained 95K miles.
Out of the blue, it has only 1 forward gear. :unsure: No CEL.
Is there anything that I can look for other than a rebuilt transmission?
Things "that go" that would result in this?
I have a friend that's a Hyundai mechanic, but he cant look at it until Thursday.
Other than brakes and swaybar end links it's been a trouble free vehicle.

keep it simple first, don't put your mind on a transmission removal until it's the only option left

has the transmission had any service recently?
was the transmission fluid "changed" or "flushed" recently?
check the transmission fluid level

I checked the level last week. I changed the trans oil 2 years ago. All parts used were OEM.
Driveway has a fresh coating on it so it doesn't leak.
I took it for a short drive this morning, but before that I sprayed some contact cleaner in the dashboard shift mechanism & worked it around a bit. Did some dusting too.
Seems to have worked!
I'll update later after a longer ride.
I'm getting extremely skittish on this car.
I've heard of the many QC problems, and last week when changing the oil I saw the coolant overflow was EMPTY!
It may be time to trade it in.
NJ traffic is hard on vehicles, plus I'm tired to doing brakes virtually every oil change.
I'm disabled, it's nowhere near as easy as it used to be.
We'll see......
