Questions About 2002 Kia Sportage’s Transmission

  • What happens if I "ride" my Kia's brakes? Keeping your foot on the brake pedal or lightly but consistently pushing it down can lead to transmission problems. Keep that in mind when driving in hilly terrain and remember to use engine braking when possible.
  • How much can I tow in a Kia Sportage? Think twice before volunteering to tow a moving trailer, no matter how small it is. Defying your Sportage towing capacity can spell trouble for the transmission system. Check your owner's manual to ensure you have the proper towing setup and aren't going over your towing capacity.
  • How often does my Sportage transmission fluid need to be checked? Maintaining your Kia Sportage transmission fluid is one of the best ways to maintain your transmission's health. About every 30,000 to 60,000 miles is a good timeframe for having your transmission fluid inspected and perhaps changed. Service intervals can vary depending on how you use your Kia, so check with your technician first. The good news is that transmission fluid leaks are affordable to repair and easy to spot.
