Hyundai Elantra: Automatic transaxle fluid (if equipped)
Automatic transaxle fluid should not be checked under normal usage conditions. But in severe conditions, the fluid should be changed at an authorized HYUNDAI dealer in accordance to the scheduled maintenance at the beginning of this chapter.
Automatic transaxle fluid color is basically red.
As the vehicle is driven, the automatic transaxle fluid will begin to look darker. This is a normal condition and you should not judge the need to replace the fluid based upon the changed color.
The use of a non-specified fluid could result in transaxle malfunction and failure.
Use only specified automatic transaxle fluid.
