2019 Kia Forte Transmission Service & Repairs

What’s the Importance of Your 2019 Forte’s Transmission?

The transmission delivers power from the motor to your wheels so that you can drive at your desired speed. Because your transmission is responsible for converting the right amount of power into the right amount of speed, even the smallest transmission problems should be addressed right away. Such problems aren’t hard to spot. Kia Forte transmission problems can present themselves as shifting delays, jumping or grinding during acceleration, the car shaking on the road, or whistling noises and a burning smell coming from under the hood. Let Kia Forte transmission problems linger and you could see your fuel economy decrease or find that your Forte isn’t working at all.

2019 Kia Forte Questions & Answers

  • Is it bad to ride the brakes in your Kia? Riding the brakes (keeping your foot lightly pressed on the brake pedal for a long time) can lead to transmission issues over time. Pay attention to how often you apply your brake and use engine braking when possible.
  • How much can I tow in a Kia Forte? Think twice before volunteering to tow your friend's moving trailer, no matter how small it is. Defying your Forte towing capacity can spell trouble for the transmission system. Always consult your owner's manual before towing or hauling something.
  • How often does my Forte transmission fluid need to be checked? Caring for your Kia Forte’s transmission fluid is a great way to help it perform. A general rule of thumb is to have your transmission fluid checked and changed about every 30,000 to 60,000 miles, but that timeline can change if you're hard on your Kia. Leaks or low transmission fluid are easy to spot and affordable to repair.
