SOURCE: Sluggish Transmission when cold

You need to change the transmission fluid and filter as soon as possible. Being sluggish when cold is a sign of a very clogged up filter.

SOURCE: Transmission fluid capacity for 2000 Kia Sephia?

The four speed automatic shows a total fill (that is all the fluid it can hold) is 5.7 Quarts. So if you just dropped the pan and relplaced the filter, you shouldnt need more than 4 quarts and likely you would have a little extra with that.

SOURCE: Changing transmission fluid for 06 Kia Sedona

Transmissions these days need very little maintenance, our fluids are advanced formulas that hold up for an average of 100,000 miles, most vehicle manufactures recommend no maintenance for automatic transaxles these days.As for a transmission flush I don't recommend this because it's an expense that is not needed and possibly could loosen some contaminants setting them loose to possibly clog some of the very small passages in the transaxle requiring full transaxle service,which could include removal,dissassembly,etc of your trans.Now draining and replacing fluid is OK if that makes you feel a peace of mind but normally not needed,if you decide to do that,as far as quantity just note approx. how much fluid is drained and purchase similar amount in quarts and then refill (DO NOT OVERFILL)
start engine, let it warm up to operating temp,then check the transmission dipstick for the correct level,remember the vehicle needs to be on a level surface,hot idiling in park when you check the fluid level. Good luck !

Were do you put more transmisson fluid in a 2011 sedame v6


You add transmission fluid at the same place you check the level. If you do not have a dipstick to check the level it is a sealed for life transmission. There is a way to add fluid but it may be hard to find if the transmission is sealed. Call your local Kia dealer and they can tell you where to add fluid if you can without a special tool.

Can I use atf in a 07 kia sedona automatic transmission?


Hi, I hate to be the bearer of bad news, but in the case of KIA I would VERY VERY definitely NOT
PUT ATF OR ANY OTHER FLUID EXCEPT WHAT KIA SUPPLIES. Not only would you void the warranty on the transmission. But an incompatible fluid may chemically attack the seals in the transmission thus destroying it.
If you happened to have put it in. DON'T DRIVE THE CAR. AND HAVE THE TRANSMISSION FLUSHED CLEAN.
Hope your having a Happy New Year

I need to know how to change the trans fluid in my 2003 kia sedona lx?


The simplest approach is to siphon the transmission fluid from the fill tube. There are several reasonably priced hand pumps on the market that will do the task. You will get about two quarts of fluid out of a warmed up transmission. Be sure to get the correct transmission fluid from a Kia or Hyundi dealer. Save the receipts for warranty purposes. There is a transmission drain plug under the transmission but its placement is difficult to reach as it is situated over a frame member. Also removing this plug will spill fluid all over you and the garage floor.

Kia sedona automatic transmission gearbox


To fill the transmission fluid, you need a funnel that fits into the dipstick tube, add fluid there. If the fluid is black and smells burnt, that's bad. I would have the fluid changed. These transmissions don't have a filter, probally a bad idea.

I HAVE THE SAME PROBLEM WITH MY 2002 SEDONA. I HAVE HAD IT TO SEVERAL DEALERS AND ALL HAVE THE SAME ANSWER, THEY DON'T KNOW WHAT THE PROBLEM IS. SO I JUST FORGET ABOUT IT. CHECK YOUR WINDSHIELD WASHER FLUID, ENSURE IT IS FULL, TRANSMISSION FLUID, ENGINE OIL, BRAKE AND POWER FLUID, THE NORM. IF NONE OF THIS WORKS, DON'T SPEND ALOT WORRYING ABOUT IT.
