Questions About 2007 Kia Spectra’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. 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 volunteering to tow a moving trailer, no matter how light the load might seem. 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 Spectra is equipped with a towing setup and can handle whatever you're thinking about towing.
  • When should I have my Spectra's transmission fluid checked or exchanged? Regularly checking and exchanging your 2007 Spectra’s transmission fluid is one of the best ways to help the transmission system 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. Leaks or low transmission fluid are easy to spot and affordable to repair.
  • Can my Kia Spectra leak transmission fluid? Yes. Kia Spectra transmission fluid can leak over time and potentially cause transmission issues. Worn or damaged seals, a loose or damaged transmission pan, a cracked transmission housing, faulty transmission cooler lines, or an overfilled transmission could cause transmission fluid leaks.
  • Who can fix my  Kia Spectra transmission leak? Your local Firestone Complete Auto Care can troubleshoot and repair Spectra transmission systems. Book an appointment online today.
  • Is it okay to drive a Spectra with a transmission fluid leak? Driving your Spectra 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.
