I have a 1997 Kia Sportage (#KNAJA5278VA787759). The automatic transmission used to not shift into overdrive at 60 km/hr, but only after the engine was warm--after about 5 km of driving. The problem...


I had a simular problem.
Ended up changing the themastat and the gears changed into overdrive when the temp. got to normal running.
Be carefull that you get right thermastat though. You want one that reaches the normal working Temp as soon as possable.
Hope this helps.

This is hard for me, because I would like to give you a lesson on vehicle purchasing.
You somehow bought a vehicle with a bad trans.
That could have been prevented
Having own a trans shop ,I have nothing positive to share with you. Sorry.
You will need professional help and unless it is a simple electrical issue,your going for a complete rebuild.
I did alot of foreign trans work. They just don't hold up like a Chevy or Dodge or some Fords.

What is the hold button for on the shifter of the 2000 sportage?


Chances are its the 'overdrive' button - usually it should be pressed in for better economy.
There may also be a 'power' button around that area also - its not the same as 'overdrive' tho...it just keeps your car in the same gear for a bit longer before it shifts up. (You won't even notice any difference unless you have your foot hard down.)

My 1998 spotage will not shift into overdrive untill motor starts to warm up. Is there a fix for this or is this normal. detjah


I was just told by a Kia dealership that is the design of the vehicle. It will not shift into overdrive until the vehicle has warmed up. The guy who told me this says his Toyota does exactly the same. So you don't have a problem. Your Kia is working as it is designed to work. Hope this helps!!
