1997 Kia Sephia Transmission Q&A

  • What happens when you "ride" your Kia's brakes? Riding the brakes (keeping your foot lightly pressed on the brake pedal for a long time) can lead to transmission issues over time. Remember that when you’re driving down winding roads, and opt for engine braking when possible.
  • How much can I tow in a Kia Sephia? Think twice before volunteering to tow a moving trailer, no matter how light the load might seem. Defying your Sephia towing capacity can spell trouble for the transmission system. Double check your owner's manual to ensure your Sephia is equipped with a towing setup and can handle whatever you're thinking about towing.
  • How often does my Sephia transmission fluid need to be checked? Regularly checking and exchanging your 1997 Sephia’s transmission fluid is one of the best ways to help the transmission system perform. Some technicians would say that between 30,000 and 60,000 miles is a good timeframe for having your Kia's transmission fluid checked and replaced, but that timeline can vary depending on how your vehicle is used and your manufacturer’s recommendations. The good news is that transmission fluid leaks are affordable to repair and easy to spot.
