2002 SantaFe ; doesnt shift into 4th gear when cold

  1. Its a 4 speed automatic trans. Ive noticed that it will not
    automatically shift into top gear when cold. Once it warms up a bit, it
    will . How normal is this ?

    very normal, speeds up the warming process to lengthen the life of your cat
    conveter, and lower emmissiions...
