Question about Kia Sedona
I dont know how many miles are on your car, But kia suggests that the transmission fluid be changed at 105,000 miles. As for the air bubbles in fluid, it can be caused by level being to high in transmission. God-Bless!

SOURCE: air in the power steering filter
The power steering fluid will aerate (churn and make bubbles) if the power steering fluid is overfull or underfilled.
If the steering is making a binding sensation, causing excess motor drag, then it's probably low.
Just go to auto parts store and buy their recommended fluid. It's about $3/quart usually. Some auto makers require very specific fluid for their cars, but for a Nissan, it should be somewhat standard.
There should be a dipstick that is marked with the proper fluid level on your power steering pump. It'll be marked HOT and COLD, which of course corresponds with when you're checking the fluid. If you haven't driven the car and it's morning time, check the level with COLD. If the car has been driven and is warmed up, then check it against HOT.

This is actually normal. Your talking about having the cap off with the vehicle running while you look in the reservoir that you pour the fluid into. Correct?

It sounds like a corroded line running to the rear heater core. If you're mechanically inclined, you can definitely replace it yourself. I would reccomend replacing both lines, as the material Kia originally used is very prone to corrosion. They realized this and now the replacement parts are much higher quality, mostly rubber and no more pot metal.

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 !
