    I know nothing about cars, I only take mine in to the Kia Delaership every 3 months to get an Oil Change and get it looked over. I am able to replace the engine oil, coolant, washer fluid Etc. However I cant find where you put the A/T (Automatic Transmission Fluid) In I know where the DIP stick for the A/T is but cant find where to put the actual fluid in. Can anyone help with this. Not even the manual fully explains where this is.

My 2008 kia optima gear 2 incorrect ratio

You likely have a Check Engine light throwing a P0732 fault. This can be attributed by 1 or more of the following:

-Low transmission fluid level
- Dirty transmission fluid
- Shift solenoids
- Transmission mechanical problems
- Transmission hydraulic control circuit

Start with the transmission fluid. If it's full, check for signs of wear. It should be purple. If it's brown and/or is giving off a burning smell, it needs to be changed. If the fluid is full and in good condition, the problem is with the transmission itself. It could be an adjustment, a bad module, or a sign that the transmission is on it's way out. Best of luck with your problem and thank you for using Fixya.

Kia optima 2004, 148000 kms, run well but making vibration and noise while i stop at light.

Hello and welcome to FixYa!

You may need to replace the engine and transmission supports. If they are worn out the engine tends to vibrates.

Hope this helps and thank you for using FixYa! Have a good one!

Just did the clutch in my 05 kia optima now cant find where to put the gear oil any ideas

there should be two bolts on the bottom of the transmission the higher one is for the fill and the lower one is the drain... for an 05 optima i recommend 2 quarts penzoil manual transmission gear oil
