What Does Your Kia Sephia Transmission Do?

Your transmission carries power from the engine to the wheels so that you can drive at the speed you desire. Since the transmission has to translate the precise amount of power for your desired amount of speed, a small transmission issue can put a big dent in your Sephia’s performance. It's a type of car problem that’s not hard to notice. Kia Sephia transmission problems can present themselves as shifting delays, grinding when accelerating, the car shaking on the road, or whistling noises and a burning smell coming from under the hood. If you don’t pay attention to Kia Sephia transmission trouble you could see your fuel economy decrease or discover that your Sephia’s not even driveable.

2001 Kia Sephia Questions & Answers

  • Is it bad to ride the brakes in your Kia? Riding the brakes (keeping your foot lightly pressed on the brake pedal for a long time) can lead to transmission issues over time. 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 offering to tow something for a friend, no matter how small. The added weight can cause issues with your transmission if your vehicle isn't equipped to handle the load. 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.
  • When should I have my Sephia's transmission fluid checked or exchanged? Caring for your Kia Sephia’s transmission fluid is a great way to help it 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. Leaks or low transmission fluid are easy to spot and affordable to repair.
