The simplest approach is to siphon the transmission fluid from the fill tube. There are several reasonably priced hand pumps on the market that will do the task. You will get about two quarts of fluid out of a warmed up transmission. Be sure to get the correct transmission fluid from a Kia or Hyundi dealer. Save the receipts for warranty purposes. There is a transmission drain plug under the transmission but its placement is difficult to reach as it is situated over a frame member. Also removing this plug will spill fluid all over you and the garage floor.

Power steering seems to give out on cold, wet days. Dry, warm day and it worked ok.

Try changing the power steering fluid

That gets done every 3 years or 30,000 miles,
at the same time as the trans fluid

Most likely the steering rack is worn

Kia sedona automatic transmission gearbox

To fill the transmission fluid, you need a funnel that fits into the dipstick tube, add fluid there. If the fluid is black and smells burnt, that's bad. I would have the fluid changed. These transmissions don't have a filter, probally a bad idea.
