Question about 2003 Kia Rio

2 Answers

What kind of Transmission Fluid does my '03' Kia Rio take?

My manual says I need a Transaxle fluid that is completely different than any of the Transmission fluids I saw in the store.
The one I bought says "For use where DEXRON-III or Mecon Fluid" is specified.
Now, this isn't close to what my manual says but will it work?

Problem with Automatic Transmission in 2002 Kia Rio Cinco


Have you checked the fluid level?Was there any oil leak spots under the car?
Correct any low fluid level and give it a try.
If the fluid is at the correct level,disconnect the battery for 10 mins then reconnect and try it again,if it still won't work you may have to have a transmission expert take a look at it.
You can put in a used transmission if needed and not spend lots of $$$ for a rebuilt trans,or just buy another complete vehicle to drive and not fix your 2002.

Where do I add transmission fluid in a 2002 kia rio automatic?


go to a parts store, they will have a long skinny funnel which you put in the transmission dipstick hole to put fluid in there. please be quite sure that you know the difference between the oil and transmission dipsticks before pouring it in.
