2008 Kia Sedona Transmission Service

What’s the Importance of Your 2008 Sedona’s Transmission?

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 tiny transmission issue can take a major toll on your car’s performance. Such problems aren’t hard to spot. 2008 Kia Sedona transmission problems could include shifting delays, grinding when accelerating, the car shaking at any speed, or a burning smell or whistling sounds coming from under the hood. If you ignore Kia Sedona transmission issues you might notice your fuel economy decrease or find that your Sedona isn’t working at all.

2008 Kia Sedona Transmission Q&A

  • What happens if I "ride" my Kia's brakes? Riding the brakes or keeping your foot on the brake pedal (even lightly) can lead to transmission issues. Pay attention to how often you apply your brake and use engine braking when possible.
  • How much can I tow in a Kia Sedona? Think twice before offering to tow something for a friend, no matter how light the load might seem. The added weight can cause issues with your transmission if your vehicle isn't equipped to handle the load. Check your owner's manual to ensure you have the proper towing setup and aren't going over your towing capacity.
  • When should I have my Sedona's transmission fluid checked or exchanged? Regularly checking and exchanging your 2008 Sedona’s transmission fluid is one of the best ways to help the transmission system 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. Luckily, leaks and low fluid levels are easy to spot and inexpensive to fix.
