    The last few weeks my 2000 Accent 5 spd has been kicking out of fourth
    gear with no warning. It started with just fourth gear and progressed
    to fifth gear. I would just have to keep my hand on the stick to kind
    of "hold it into gear" when I was on the gas in fourth and fifth
    gear. Now within the last two or three days I can’t even put it into
    third gear becuase when I go to shift into third and let out the
    clutch it kicks out and if I put it back in it just keeps on trying to
    kick out. It does the same with 5th gear.

    It just started making some really weird noice like it’s dragging
    somethign but it only does it occassionally. Sometimes it doesn’t
    even want to go into reverse and again, sometimes when I take my foot
    off the clutch in reverse it kicks out.

    Please don’t tell me that the tranny is bad --- I’ll die.

    PLEASE HELP!!!!!!!! --- Jenn

    It's also possibly a problem with the shifter cables or retainers. Have it
    checked.

    My wife's 2000 Accent had this same problem between 4th and 5th, would pop
    out of gear. The dealership had heard of it before and said there was a
    small "detent" missing in the original casing and replaced it. It was the
    back 1/2 casing I think.
    Anyway, that cured the problem and has never happened again. Ours was
    done under warranty about 3 years ago but you may want to check.
    Hyundaitech, have you ever heard of this? The tech that did the
    installation said there were some from 2000 that slipped through and didn't
    get caught at QA.

    I vaguely recall an Accent about 2000 model year I worked on which broke
    something inside the trans. At this point I don't recall whether the
    technical service bulletin addressed the specific problem or whether it
    simply addressed the revised parts I'd need to use for repair. If I
    recall correctly, there were revised parts to repair a design flaw issue
    which led to an undesireable failure rate, but it's been long enough I
    can't be sure of much at this point.
