2016 Kia Soul Transmission Service

Why is Your 2016 Soul’s Transmission So Important?

The transmission delivers power from the engine to the wheels so that you can drive on your terms. Because of the transmission’s responsibility to translate the right dose of power into the right amount of speed, a small transmission issue can put a big dent in your Soul’s performance. Such problems aren’t hard to spot. 2016 Kia Soul transmission problems can show up as shifting delays, jumping or grinding during acceleration, the car shaking at any speed, or a burning smell or whistling sounds coming from under the hood. If you ignore Kia Soul transmission issues you might notice your fuel economy decrease or discover that your Soul’s not even driveable.

2016 Kia Soul Questions & Answers

  • What happens when you "ride" your Kia's brakes? Riding the brakes or keeping your foot on the brake pedal (even lightly) can lead to transmission issues. Keep that in mind when driving in hilly terrain and remember to use engine braking when possible.
  • What can I tow in a Kia? 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 Soul’s towing capacity. Double check your owner's manual to ensure your Soul is equipped with a towing setup and can handle whatever you're thinking about towing.
  • How often does my Soul transmission fluid need to be checked? Regularly checking and exchanging your 2016 Soul’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.
