  1. Bad synchros, or clutch system?

    Veloster Turbo Problems / Help
    I have a 2013 VT 6 speed manual with about 64000 miles on it. I have had it for a little over a year now and I am the third (maybe fourth) owner. I didn't realize it when I bought it (first manual, second car) but it has issues shifting, especially at high rpm. This might be a long post, but I...
  2. Hard to shift at high RPM

    Veloster Turbo Problems / Help
    Any time i get on the throttle and let the rpms build up (4000 and above) the car does not want to shift. The clutch is all the way in, but when i try to push it into 2nd, 3rd, and 4th at high rpm, the car wont go into the gear. It locks me into neutral for a second or two before i can finally...
  3. 2015 VT AT Transmission Feels like it Disengages...

    Veloster Turbo Problems / Help
    Hello Everyone ! I have owned my car since September of 2015 it now has 4850 miles on it. I have noticed since around 1200 that the transmission feels like it disengages when I'm at a full stop and the break is firmly pressed. When i come to a stop the car will drop rpms and feels like it drops...
  4. Gear engagement/synchronizater difficulty - better fluid maybe?

    Veloster Turbo Discussions
    So I have noticed, probably due to cold weather, that the shifter can be difficult to engage. What I mean is that when you shift in any gear, the engine slows down at about the same rate as a Mack truck, or possibly more like a diesel ship engine, so if you are trying to engage the shifter into...
  5. A/T Transmission Issues?

    Veloster Turbo Discussions
    I have a 2013 Veloster Turbo with A/T and full bolt-ons and will receive my BTRcc tune soon as well. I am wondering if having the A/T is going to be a problem with increased torque and if there is anything that can be done in the future to relieve some of these problems. And before I get railed...
  6. Automatic Transmission Issue

    Veloster Turbo Problems / Help
    About 4-5 days ago my A/T transmission started acting up. Whenever I switch from 5th gear to 4th gear ONLY in SPORT mode it does this. It will sometimes do it from 3rd to 2nd. It also feels like my car shifts hard, but I think that is normal. The higher the revs when I downshift the more you...
  7. VT Auto Transmission

    Veloster Performance
    Alright guys, a few questions about the auto VT's. Here is my list: 1.) What other vehicles contain the same AUTO transmission? 2.) Auto VT owners ranging between 200-230 HP and/or 220-250 TQ (or more) are you guys having any transmission issues so far? 3.) Does anyone know about how much...
  8. Manual transmission swap

    Veloster Performance
    Anyone ever have any thoughts or ideas about this? I mean I would be willing to try it at some point, the auto transmission in this car won't last forever (maybe :) ), but what would be a estimate on just parts do this? A very, very rough estimate. Thanks!
  9. Shifter Linkage Bushings

    Veloster Turbo DIY
    Ok So I am finally getting around to writing this DIY showing how to replace the shifter linkage bushing on a manual transmission. First thing I am going to note, which I have multiple times in a couple threads: There are two possible end links for the VTs. You can pretty much tell by the...
