SOURCE: Car stops moving in reverse gear

Sounds like the car is just slipping out of gear. Keep your hand on the shifter when you back up next time. See if you can feel the shifter move when the car comes out of gear. If the shifter moves up when it happens keep pressure on the shifter holding it back like you dont want it to move forward. And of course if the shifter moves back when it comes out of gear, put forward pressure on the shifter so it doesnt slip out. This might work for now but but i know i wouldnt want to spen 700 for that ****. Let me know how it goes.

SOURCE: 2000 kia sephia clutch

this is a big job for someone who is not mechanically inclined but....here it goes go buy a new clutch new tranny fluid and a haynes manual at the auto parts store your going to have to drain and drop your tranny ... BUY THE CLUTCH WITH THE TOOL theres an alignment tool needed to align the plates n bearings start by pulling off both tires, brakes and both cv axels be sure to remove the intermediate shaft from the tranny on the passenger side (should come out with the axel passenger side only) so do yourself a favor and buy an impact gun with at least 500 ft lbs torque youll need it also have handy your 14mm 17mm and 19mm impact sockets and remember this job usually runs around 1,200 bucks at firestone also DO NOT remove the bolt in the middle of the front springs under the hood just the four around it and the will pop out no prob and wont need to be clamped remove the starter behind your engine its under the oil filter also if your new to this sorta thing its gonna take you about 3 days to do it buy the impact gun if ur in a hurry look at a pawn shop have your flywheel machined its going to be accessible and it needs it hope this helps dont forget the book which you should already have bought anyway its good for your torque specs which you will also need a torque wrench for the clutch also dont crack open ur tranny this isnt a honda

SOURCE: 1991 Caprice No reverse. Moves in neutral. All forward gears OK.

What engine? Rear wheel drive ?Sounds like shift linkage or cable out of adjustment slightly. Have a look at where cable or rod attaches to transmission for adjustment. If not sure of what your looking for get back to me with info.

When you experience this problem, check to see if your brake lights are coming on. It could be as simple as a brake light switch malfunction. If the brake lights are functioning as the problem is occurring then you could for example have a problem with the shift interlock solenoid.

SOURCE: NO REVERSE LIGHTS REAR PARK SENSOR WHEN REVERSE SELECTED

On the side of your transmission will be a switch with several wires coming out of it. This is your reverse switch that turns on your reverse lights and most likely needs to be replaced. The switch is just plug and play

2000 Kia Sephia engine runs fine, but does not move in drive, low or reverse


Never heard of a transmission control reset, but after much research, I found they can be reset by removing both battery terminals, then touching both terminals together for 5 to 10 seconds, then seperate and reattach the terminals to battery. Evidently the transmission control has an internal memory. Try that first, then i sould suspect transmission control module. the control module controls every aspect of transmission shifting. Hope that helps!

I have a 2000 Kia Sephia with an automatic transmission. It starts and runs fine, but all of a sudden, it won't shift into any gear. It won't make a noticeable sound or action while shifting from...


all of a sudden- lkike your driving down the road and it stops working? or your stuck at home? so what I gather is you have a good running car that wont move.... a couple of things to check.. look under the hood at your transmission... there is a link from your shifter to the tranny. have someone else move the lever from frive to low gear to park etc.. then you look under the hood and make sure the cable is still attatched to the trans. if it is attatched and not moving you might have a freyed cable... if none of this is working you prob. need a new tranny
hope this helps

No fire to coil


Before you replace the ignition coil, make sure that you do the folowing. Turn ignition to on, move automatic gear shift lever through the gears and when you move it back to park shove it harder than normal. Turn key completely off and then try to start the car.
If the car is not sufficiently in PARK or the park sensor switch is defective it will act like the car is turned off. Also you can try starting in NEUTRAL to troubleshoot whether the car will get fire.

My stickshift doesn't move


You will need to have your foot on the brake to make the stickshift lever move out of park. If it still will not, look for a faulty switch or solenoid coming from the brake pedal. Also, the car key has to be turned on.

Something you might try, if the brake release switch is bad, is to turn the key to ACC and do not start the car. Then see if you can move the lever to neutral, then turn the ignition to "start" and drive normally.

WIll not shift out of park


it could be a malfunctioning brake light switch on the brake pedal. this is the switch the allows the gear shift lever to be moved from one gear to the other. You should also check the switch for proper adjustment.

Power steering fluid gone in 2000 kia after filling up this morning.


Hi mdenny67,

You obviously have a leak somewhere (and a pretty bad one at that). Check around the reservoir (where you fill it up) for obvious leakage. Park your car somewhere that you'll be able to spot it on the ground, then move the car. This will give you an idea of where on the car it's leaking from. After this is done, look under the car in the area it's leaking from and we'll see about some repair instructions after that.

Hope I've helped, don't forget to rate.

Starting problem


SOURCE: Kia Technician Times
TITLE: A/T Inhibitor Switch
APPLIES TO: 95-00 Sephia
SERVICE TIP:
CONDITION
Some 1995 thru 2000 Sephia Automatic Transmission equipped vehicles may exhibit the following inhibitor switch concerns: - The vehicle may not start intermittently in park or neutral. - The vehicle TCU may intermittently lose the gear position signal from the inhibitor switch and go into failsafe mode (third gear). If the inhibitor switch signal returns while driving, the TCU will return to normal transmission control. The vehicle will then upshift or downshift abruptly depending on vehicle speed. - The TCU will set a pending OBDII code and then after two key cycles, the MIL light will come on and the O/D light will flash.
CAUSE
Corrosion/dirt on the inhibitor switch connector terminals or internal contacts.
CORRECTIVE ACTION Replace the inhibitor switch with P/N KFW35-21-444 and carefully adjust per procedures in the applicable service manual.
Note: The 1998-2000 Sephia Service Manual has an error on page 42-104 inhibitor switch inspection/adjustment. The connector terminal chart should show terminals 5 and 7 having continuity in neutral. The correct inhibitor switch terminal locations are shown below.

I Hope this Info Corrects Your Problem Please Don't Forget to RATE Me ! Thank you
