2006 Kia Sedona Transmission Service & Repairs

What’s the Importance of Your 2006 Sedona’s Transmission?

The transmission delivers power from the engine to the wheels so that you can drive on your terms. Since the transmission has to translate the precise amount of power for your desired amount of speed, a tiny transmission issue can take a major toll on your car’s performance. It's a type of car problem that’s not hard to notice. Kia Sedona transmission problems can present themselves as shifting delays, grinding or jumping during acceleration, a feeling of shakiness, or a burning smell or whistling sounds coming from under the hood. Let Kia Sedona transmission problems linger and you could see your fuel economy decrease or find that you can't drive your Sedona at all.

Questions About 2006 Kia Sedona’s Transmission

  • What happens when you "ride" your Kia's brakes? Riding the brakes or keeping your foot on the brake pedal (even lightly) can lead to transmission issues. Remember that when you’re driving down winding roads, and opt for engine braking when possible.
  • How much can my Kia tow?   Think twice before volunteering to tow a moving trailer, no matter how small. The added load can mess with your transmission system if it exceeds your Sedona’s towing capacity. Double check your owner's manual to ensure your Sedona is equipped with a towing setup and can handle whatever you're thinking about towing.
  • When should I have my Sedona's transmission fluid checked or exchanged? Maintaining your Kia Sedona 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. The good news is that transmission fluid leaks are affordable to repair and easy to spot.
