Question about 1998 Kia Sephia

Open Question

While in reverse, my 1998 Kia Sephia stopped running. In restarting, the "Check Engine" & "O/D OFF" appeared. O/D OFF keeps flashing. As I then activated O/D switch, the tranny did move in and out of O/D. So that seemed to a relief even though the flashing continued on the dash. Don't know if there is an issue with the clutch solenoid (P0740) or if it is a poor electrical connection. Is there a way to troubleshoot both of these issues?

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: 99 kia sephia, o/d light is flashing on dash

Hi. this is the result of a failed O/D shift solenoid that is located inside the transmission pan. you will need to drop the trans pan to access this solenoid. once replaced, the O/D option will become operational once more.


Please rate and have a great day:)

SOURCE: 2000 kia sephia constant engine stalling!!!

try this procedure and let me know if it cures the problem.

Here is the common cause of surges, stalls at stops, slow idle speed, erratic idle speed, rough idle and engine hesitation (and other problems), it is in most cases the idle speed control air-bypass valve and or throttle valve and upper intake, these area's get full of gunk and combustion residue over the miles and cause idle issues (stalls, low idle) like yours, Get a can of intake cleaner from any local parts store, not carb spray, intake cleaner, it is made by a company called CRC, remove the air intake hose to the engine, hold the idle high so the engine won't stall, then spray the can of cleaner into the intake while keeping the engine running, use at least 1/2 the can, shut down the engine and disconnect the battery for 5 minutes, then restart and complete a number of mixed driving cycles, town, freeway, stop and go etc., after a few days the problem will go away as the system will relearn to the clean intake.

SOURCE: i have a 2005 kia sorento v6 3.5L. the check

Notice that all of the misfiring cylinders are on the same side of the engine. How was it determined that this is an electrical issue? I would expect further codes to turn up as a misfire code is not very informative. Good luck!

My check engine light/overdrive flashes on my 2000 kia sephia what could be the problem?


There are many different sources for the light to come on. Anything that caused combustion to fail, commonly called a misfire will set the light. Various sensors such as oxygen sensors that evaluate the exhaust before and after the gases are burned in the converter. Transmission codes may set the check engine light to appear. If the car is running okay, get it fixed in a reasonable amount of time such as within the month. It will probably save you fuel if you do. However if the Check engine light is flashing, you should not be driving it as damage is being done to the converter.

How often to change the engine oil for the kia sephia b5 engine


Change your oil every 5,000 kilometres and change your oil and filter every 10,000 kilometres unless you are doing a lot of k's then do it sooner as it loses it's viscosity. It's cheaper in the long run - believe me.

1998 Kia Sephia - replace the starter


To put it very simple, if you plan on keeping the vehicle for any real length of time, go to your local parts store and buy a manual. Haynes and Chilton make pretty good repair books. They have pictures, step by step instructions, safety tips, and generally, what tools are needed. A good book runs about $25.00. If you're gonna keep it, buy the book. There is no way anyone can answer you question in the proper details needed on this limited site.

Good Luck and check it out.

Check engine light on and O/D OFF light flashing


I was facing a similar problem when I bought my car, I think the "check engine" lit due to a problem with shifting control system which obviously made the "O/D-off" flashes.The best solution in this case is to replace the malfunctioning shifting control system (a closed steel box that works like a computer).This is what I did and since then it's running perfectly.
