Just wondering if anyone can give me a link to some education for me...
I'm looking to change the ATF in my '02 Elantra GLS and I've been searcing fruitlessly.

ALL Hyundais use SP-III ATF. This is ONLY available at the dealer. IF you use anything else it will destroy the transmission as soon as you go 400 miles. The *other* fluids melt the plastic parts and the clutch pack material, which has rubber in it.

A dealer service is your best bet (Hyundai dealer).

I have replaced about 5 auto trans in the past 6 months because owners did not use SP-III fluid.

BTW: Using other fluid voids the warranty.
