What Does Your Kia Stinger Transmission Do?

They're often easy to notice. 2023 Kia Stinger transmission problems can show up as shifting delays, grinding or jumping during acceleration, a feeling of shakiness, or whistling noises and a burning smell coming from under the hood.

2023 Kia Stinger Transmission Q&A

  • 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 Stinger? Think twice before volunteering to tow a moving trailer, no matter how small it is. The added load can mess with your transmission system if it exceeds your Stinger’s towing capacity. Always consult your owner's manual before towing or hauling something.
  • Does my Stinger's transmission fluid need to be inspected? Maintaining your Kia Stinger transmission fluid is one of the best ways to maintain your transmission's health. 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.
  • Can transmission fluid leak from my Kia Stinger? Yes. Kia Stinger transmission fluid can leak as time passes, which may lead to transmission problems. Transmission fluid leaks are often caused by worn or damaged transmission components, such as the transmission pan, cooler lines, seals, or housing. An overfilled transmission may also be behind your transmission fluid leak.

  • Should I avoid driving my Kia Stinger if there is a transmission fluid leak? You should avoid driving with a transmission fluid leak. Your transmission system relies on transmission fluid to operate properly, and a leak may decrease performance, cause your Stinger to overheat, or even lead to transmission failure.
