A few hunderd possible causes - sticking pistons, frozen slide pins, loose pads, worn pads, offset/loose/missing bolts - caliper, worn hub bearing, defective master cylinder, malfunction in the master cylinder vacuum boost bellows. Anybody's guess

SOURCE: I think our 2001 Kia Optima has the same problem

Seems you have 'MULTIPLE' possible causes for this problem. First of all, I'd have a mechanic (a smart one) check the Throttle Position Sensor (TPS) first, Usually, the TPS does have a direct effect on trans shifting erratically. It's also used by the ECM (Engine Control Module) to calculate 'LOAD' and subsequently the Fuel Mapping (fuel to air ratio, ignition timing, etc) which could possibly create a RANDOM MISFIRE condition. This other description you have regarding 10 minutes - that one's wierd - could be a multitude of possible causes (i.e, fuel pressure not enough or too much, malfunction in the Engine Coolant Temperature (ECT) sensor, malfunction in the Intake Air Temperature (IAT) sensor. First things first - get the TPS checked - if found bad - replace it. Go from there.

My 2001 Kia optima will not accelerate over 3000 rpm


I had that exact problem with my 2005 Kia optima.. It suddenly started one morning.. My Kia would not turn over.. I felt it was a power issue so I unattached my after market fog-lights that I have attached to my battery.. That got my ride to start, but upon driving it refused to go past 3000 rpms (in all gears)... I took apart my battery terminals and scrubbed them down with a tooth brush and coca-cola.. That was a perfect fix for my situation.. My Kia ran perfectly right after...
Good luck

Alot of people have the same problem, including me. Changing the transmission fluid is not going to help this problem. THe transmission filter is not something you change as much as you clean and reinstall, its just a metal screen. Call Kia and ask for an "OVERDRIVE SHIFT SOLENOID" they will need the last 8 digits of your VIN, vehicle identification number, to locate your part. I am in the process of changing mine. The part number should be something like 46313-39051. That number is for a 2001 Kia Optima, with the 4 cylinder. There are three shift solenoids bolted to the bottom of your transmission should. I'll let you know what the difficulty level when I am finished.

Hello, my Kia optima 2001 has an auto tranny, the problem is that the car makes rough shifts to 1st gear from a complete stop, it jumbles a little then it recovers and drives normally until a new stop is...


I would recommend that you have the fluid and filter changed, and put some Seafoam transmission repair in it, Seafoam is the best thing that you can use for a transmission, it will free a stcky valve body, and condition all of the moving parts, freeing them of grime that causes transmission damage and slipping, and hard shifting, you can get it at just about any auto parts store.
