Your transmission carries power from the engine to the wheels so that you can drive at the speed you desire. Because your transmission is responsible for converting the right amount of power into the right amount of speed, a small transmission issue can put a big dent in your Optima’s performance. It's a type of car problem that’s not hard to notice. Kia Optima transmission problems can present themselves as shifting delays, grinding when accelerating, a feeling of shakiness, or whistling noises and a burning smell coming from under the hood. If you ignore Kia Optima transmission issues you could see your fuel economy decrease or find that you can't drive your Optima at all.
Kia recommends having your Optima's transmission system routinely inspected for wear and tear. For example, the transmission fluid in your Optima should be exchanged regularly with Kia-approved fluid. Our technicians are trained to service 2005 Kia Optima transmission systems according to vehicle manufacturer recommendations.
