Output speed sensor circut malfunction

I've been having trouble with my 2002 Hyundai Sonata and I thought it was my transmission going out. We hooked it up to the computer it's reading an
error as the output speed sensor. Would that seem like a transmission problem when driving it? How much will this cost me if I take it to the shop and do you know any place in the DFW to take it to an honest mechanic?

OK - but what problems are you having? Why do you think the transmission is "going out"?

That's a good finding. Now you have something to go on. This would be a good place to start.

That could be too long of a list to put in a newsgroup post. Better if you would describe your problem. But - you already have a trouble code - why not address that instead of considering other things?

For pricing, you are better calling shops and telling them what you are getting for a code. References for a good mechanic are always more valuable when they come from local people - preferably from people you know. Call the dealer - it's a good place to start when trying to understand what will be done, and at what price. The good news is that the dealer is always the most expensive route, so you get past the sticker shock right up front.
All of that said - did you purchase the car new? If so you have lots of warranty left (probably) that will cover this repair. If you bought it used, you may still have warranty left that will cover it. Post back with whether you purchased it new or used and what mileage is on the car now. If it's under 60,000 miles, you can get the repair done under warranty - assuming some issue with the car or the use/maintenance of the car does not invalidate the warranty.

I have an 2002 elantra and in the past had to chaange both the input and ouput speed sensors. I know what you feel like having weird things happen with your transmission. Total cost was about $300cdn for each sensor... they went about 6 months apart. Fun eh.

If your output speed sensor isn’t working properly, your transmission cannot operate properly. The output speed sensor is one of the primary inputs used to determine when to shift.
The good news is that you probably only need a new output speed sensor.
