Questions About 2024 Kia Sorento’s Transmission

  • 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. Remember that when you’re driving down winding roads, and opt for engine braking when possible.
  • How much can I tow in a Kia Sorento? Think twice before volunteering to tow your friend's moving trailer, no matter how light the load might seem. The added load can mess with your transmission system if it exceeds your Sorento’s towing capacity. Always consult your owner's manual before towing or hauling something.
  • When should I have my Sorento's transmission fluid checked or exchanged? Caring for your Kia Sorento’s transmission fluid is a great way to help it 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.
  • Is it possible for transmission fluid to leak from my Kia Sorento? Yes, your Kia Sorento can develop a transmission fluid leak. As your Sorento ages, parts of the transmission system might wear out or break down, leading to a leak and possible transmission issues. Common causes of transmission fluid leaks include worn seals, a damaged transmission housing, a loose or cracked transmission pan, an overfilled transmission, or faulty transmission lines.
  • Who does Kia Sorento transmission repair? Your local Firestone Complete Auto Care can troubleshoot and repair Sorento transmission systems. Book an appointment online today.
  • Should I avoid driving my Kia Sorento if there is a transmission fluid leak? Driving your Sorento with a transmission fluid leak is highly discouraged. Transmission fluid is vital to the smooth operation of your transmission system, and a leak can put the entire system at risk. A transmission fluid leak may lead to decreased performance, overheating, and possibly even transmission failure.
