Questions About 1999 Kia Sephia’s Transmission

  • Is it bad to ride the brakes in your Kia? 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 I tow in a Kia Sephia? Think twice before volunteering to tow your friend's moving trailer, no matter how small. The added load can mess with your transmission system if it exceeds your Sephia’s towing capacity. 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 1999 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.
