If the speed sensor went it may be confusing the computer not knowing when too tell the tranny too shift when it should.

sounds like the shift cables are corroded or seized, forcing the shift may have bent the linkage. inspect and replace the shift cables and inspect the cable bracket, bend back into shape if required :)

Use of the hold button in kia sephia


This is the overdrive button changes the car to drive and overdrive drive is 3rd gare and overdrive is like 4th it's used for highway and around town. You get better gas mileage when shifting down to drive around town.Hope this helped.

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.
