Question about 2007 Kia Rio 5 Sx M/T Hatchback

1 Answer

I have a Kia Rio 2007 sedan and lately when I start the car and shift into reverse or drive the car shifts with a thunk. When the car is warmed up after driving and stopping this doesn't happen anymore. The transaxle fluid level seems to be OK.

Idle RPM is usually higher when the engine is cold. It could be a couple of things as obviously I can't listen to it.
I would check the motor and transmission mounts to make sure one has not failed and also the craddle mounts at the body.
The other possibility could be drive train slack. When you put the car in gear, all of the chain and gear tolerences begine to move forward and have to take out all the slack in the powertrain. As all of that is taken up, you here the "thunk", so it may be normal.
With the hood open, have someone put the car in gear (don't stand in front of it) and watch the engine, if it appears to "roll" or shift in the engine compartment, have the mounts checked.
Let me know.
Regards,

This is a situation of low pressure,as you warm up the vehicle the transmission fluid is warmer which allow the torque convertor to produce pressure to collapse the clutch pack and transfer power for a shift gear,your solution is a torque convertor and a front pump

I have a kia rio 2001 the car shakes when i drive it. seems that it does not go into gears, it has no power.


AUTO GEAR THE SERVICE MANUAL DOES NOT REQUIRE TO CHANGE GEAR OIL AND FILTER ,BUT TIME AND USAGE OF THE CAR MAKES THE OIL FITLY AND EVAPORATE EVEN IN CLOSE GEARS.SO CHANGING REFRESH THE GEAR SHIFTING USUALLY SOLVES THE PROBLEM IF ITS NO TOO LATE ADV. CHANGE GEAR OIL EVERY OTHER SERVICE SCHEDULE.

Transmission problems


This is what my 04 Kia Rio is doing exactly. I was told that the TCM and Shift Solenoid "C" is faulty. Am trying to figure out how to go about fixing that without paying more than the car is worth. My tech checked with the local Kia dealership and the TCM new is I think around $700. You also have to buy the program to tell this high dollar part what to do and that is right at $100. I have found that sometimes if I let the car warm up and then keep hitting the overdrive button, eventually it starts shifting correctly.
