Question about 2001 Kia Sephia
The first thing to check is the fluid. If you have a dipstick, start there. If it needs fluid, get the right stuff, there are about 15 different kinds staring you in the face, you have no idea which one it is, your owner's manual will tell you. If it is full, you have a problem. If it doesn't have a stick, you have 2 plugs on the side of the tranny, one for level, one for filling. Pull the bottom plug out, if fluid seeps out it is full, if not, pull the top plug and fill it up till it seeps out, then plug it back up, bottom first. Now, when tranny's go bad, or get hot, or something happens, they go into a safe mode to prevent further damage, yours might be in safe mode, usually you can get home, slowly, I would suspect the torque converter or the drive shaft broke. Check it out, hope this helps.
