What Does Your Kia Rio Transmission Do?

Such problems aren’t hard to spot. 2014 Kia Rio transmission problems can show up as shifting delays, grinding when accelerating, the car shaking on the road, or whistling noises and a burning smell coming from under the hood.

Questions About 2014 Kia Rio’s Transmission

  • What happens when you "ride" your Kia's brakes? Keeping your foot on the brake pedal or lightly but consistently pushing it down can lead to transmission problems. Pay attention to how often you apply your brake and use engine braking when possible.
  • What can I tow in a Kia? Think twice before volunteering to tow a moving trailer, no matter how small. The added weight can cause issues with your transmission if your vehicle isn't equipped to handle the load. Always consult your owner's manual before towing or hauling something.
  • How often does my Rio transmission fluid need to be checked? Maintaining your Kia Rio transmission fluid is one of the best ways to maintain your transmission's health. 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.
