Kia sportage shift

I have a 2000 Kia Sportage that will not shift into 3rd gear until the engine warms up. After that the trans shifts fine. Had the Trans oil power flushed, same issues.

    Yes.. Had the Pan removed cleaned and a new filter. Same issues, After engine reached 140F.. Trans shifts fine.

    Then I would say the pump, clutches or planitaries are getting ready to croak. Unless the incorrect ranny fluid was used.

When you had the tranny fluid flushed, did you have them do a tranny service? This means they remove the pan and replace the filter, flush it and then refill. They also clean out the bottom of the tranny pan where all the yuck settles. My GMC products also have a magnet charged filter in the bottom to attract and hold fine metal particulates.

I just replaced all the belts on my 2000 Kia


The last shift is not a real gear shift, it is called "torque converter". The high rpms happens because the transm. goes to neutral. Get it to a transm. shop to be tested
