I own a 2009 kia spectra and would like to know when i should have my transmission flushed,serpentine belt changed?

unless the engine is running rough , forget the tune up as the ECM is doing that 60 times a minute ---have the fault codes read to check for reports on faulty sensors first
transmission oil change is at around 60.000miles or multiples of 60.000 or if the oil is not bright cherry red or like a clear tan color
the belt you can check where it goes over a idler pulley with the grooves exposed and if you see small cracks on the grooves , it is time to consider changing it as the cracks denote that it is getting too hard to flex properly and will break soon
if it is close to 100.000klms or 60.000 miles and the timing belt has not been changed it is getting to the danger zone and should be changed asap
find yourself an accredited service center that has experience on your vehicle to discuss it as transmission oil change and timing belt is a professional operation

Transmission is shift really hard

Check the color of the transmission fluid, dark colored is bad. Overheating could cause the transmission fluid to go bad. Most transmission fluids are red and semi transparent. If the fluid is bad change the fluid, this can fix hard shifts and shudder.

My daughter just got a 2000 volvo s40. It has a 115,000 miles and the timing belt has never been changed. And, the transmission fluid is brown. Should we be concerned?

Yes, and no. The timing belt MUST BE CHANGED. It should have been changed at around 60,000miles Bad, bad things can happen if it breaks while its running. As for the tranny fluid, it has probably never been changed either so it's probably 11 years old. Just have that changed as well. Otherwise, very nice car. Good luck with it.

Transmission and timing belt I have over 200,000 miles on my Mercedes 300E series. Should I change my chain timing belt immediately? Transmission is a little funky. Would changing the transmission...

If you mean the timing chain yes would be my response. If you have never changed it who knows what condition its in. If you mean the belt just check the rubber for cracks and such and replace as needed.

Transmission has cooling lines that pass through the radiator for longevity. New fluid and filter will help the clutches from being worn for sure. Its a 30K mile change so definatly a good idea. Also check for vacuum leaks.

Coming up on 200,000 Km. What service should I

That is about 120, 000 miles, if you have not done already, you should change the timimg belt and while you are doing that it is a good idea to replace the water pump. You could change your transmission oil but not critical.

My 1994 Honda Accord LX words fine. It had the timing belts replaced at 55,000 miles, and I have been giving it regular maintenance. Does it really need a 60,000 mile check up, with all the fluids replaced...

Boy, you have a low mileage car!

I would think that you would not need much done, if the timing belt was just changed, but perhaps your transmission servicing should still be done, as that would not have been done with the belt change. Of course, your normal oil changes need to be done too.

96 Vision transmission problems 2 days after waterpump changed

i dont' think a mechanic had anythig to do with this. when a timing belt and a water pump is changed in this type of vehicle there is no interferrence with the transmission, it's only the front of the engine that is disassembled. I've heard that in some cases when a transmission flush is done as well as a fiter change, it can loosen up the dirt particles lodged within it as well as other contaminents and can cause failure. Please note that in some cases the transmission may only require a new relay ! Have it looked at for a second opinion before assuming the worst!
