    I have a 98 Elantra with the 1.8 engine. The automatic transmission is
    giving me some problems. The orginal Transmission had no reverse and
    shifted hard between 1st and 2nd then it would loose connection when it
    it 25 MPH. I pulled a transmission from a 97 Elantra and it does the
    exact same thing. No reverse and shifting hard between 1st and 2nd and
    looses connection at 25 MPH. I even changed the Trans. Computer and it
    did not help. If I take the O/D off it will shift hard in 1st to
    second and then I got it up to 45 MPH in my back road but it does not
    shift again. Then I started from a start and hit the gass hard and
    when it was in 1st gear it seemed to drop down a gear like it does when
    you floor it. CAN IT BE STARTING IN 2ND GEAR? if so what would cause
    this or is the trans mission I got bad as well. ANY HELP GREATLY

    According to my electrical schematic, the tranmission in the 1997 has two
    shift solenoids, one torque converter clutch solenoid, and one pressure
    control solenoid, but the 1998 has three shift solenoids, one torque
    converter clutch solenoid, and two pressure control solenoids.

    It's been awhile since I've looked at one of these electrically, but I'm
    curious how you even got the electrical connectors to plug in.

    How many terminal holes do you have in the shift solenoid connector on the
    harness and how many on the trans connector?

    I will count it tomorrow.The transmission is supost to be the same for
    the 1.8 on 96 - 98 models. Everything was same. From memory it has
    one main wire harness and one sensor on the driver side of the
    transmission on the top of the transmission right beside the motor mot
    and it runs to a sensor on the driver side facing the front bumber.
    Right to the left of it is another sensor. Does this help. in 98 they
    have a 1.8 and a 2.0 engine option. Mine is the 1.8 and the 97 was a
    1.8. When I looked at the transmission from a accent (96)or 95 it
    looks to bolt the same other than the rear motor mount is in a
    different position but could be moved to the same location. And the
    plate that protects the oil pan that bolts to the botton of the
    transmission is not there on the accent. But looks like it would work
    as it has the same wire harness and sensor locations. it is on a 1.5
    engion. You r thoughts?

    In my experience, the differential on the Accent has a different offset
    from the bellhousing and different cv joint shaft diameters. I wouldn't
    try it.
