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 !

How do you read the transmission dipstick it only has 25 c and 75 c


I think those must be temperature marks. If I am right, 25 c would be the transmission fluid cold temperature, and 75 c would be the fluid hot mark or level.

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.

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.

My 2003 kia transmission will not shift into next gear at 45mph do u know what it is?


The transmission fluid is the first place to check. The car must be running in park and be slightly warmed up to get an accurate reading. The transmission dipstick is near the big black box near the drivers steering wheel area under the hood. It has a black plastic "stopper" at the top and you pull it straight up while the car is running, wipe the dipstick end off with a paper towel to dry it and then place it back in the tube and pull it out and inspect it. The reddish fluid should be near the "top" little dot or hole in the dipstick a few inches from the bottom of the dipstick where it says 65 degrees. If there's nothing on the stick, you need to add fluid, one pint at time (use for Dexron III automatic transmission fluid) and repeat until the fluid is to the 65 degrees mark. Then the transmission should shift properly. If the fluid is already at the 65 degrees mark before you add anything, you should pay the dealership to diagnose the issue. If the fluid was LOW, you may want to add transmission leak sealer, cross your fingers and save some money for your next transmission (dealership will not fix leaks from transmission seals including plugs in the transmission but they will be happy to sell you a new transmission)

How do i change transmission fluid in 06 sedona


Honestly your best bet is to take it to jiffy lube or some similar franchise as they will flush the transmission as well.

How many quarts does the refill take after draining fluid? 2004 kia sedona. the guys at the service desk of the kia dealership where i bought the fluid said between 4 and 5 quarts. the service amnual says...


I would say 4 to 5 quarts, like the guys at the dealership. It takes 9 quarts when the torque converter is empty, it holds close to 4 quarts. You might want to wait a bit to check the level after filling to get a more precise reading. You may have been low on transmission fluid when you drained it. The one I drained had at least 4 quarts in it, not counting the torque converter.

MIL Check Engine Light Stays on


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.
