Question about 2004 Kia Optima

1 Answer

Hi Folks: I own a 2004 Kia Optima. Since I am out of the country a lot it only has 24,000 kilometers on it. Every eaar when I travel I take it to the dealer to service. Two months ago the transmission began making a strange noise as I was reversing. Then ti was slow to select. Since it was 2.00 A.M in the morning I pooured transmission fluid in. It stopped and I got home safely. One week later the same thing. I see no transmission fluid. It says it needs no fluid. On the road out of town the same thing happened. I poured in fluid. It worked. Service is not due for 2 more months. Do they have transmission problems?

You keep adding transmission fluid, but make no mention of the transmission being low on fluid. Is it losing transmission fluid? There are two sensors that seem to need replacing quite often. The input and output speed sensors on the transmission. They are accessible under a protective cover on top of the transmission. Replacing these sensors seems to help for a while. You need to have the transmission fluid drained and a new filter put in. Have the car's computer scanned and cleared of trouble codes. These are temporary fixes.The information I could find on Kia Forums is that this is a Chrysler manufactured transmission and had a history of problems. If you are still under warranty, you should insist on a new transmission or rebuild the old one.

You have to give us the price of fuel and. and type of driving. Was it all hiway miles or a lot of city miles This all makes a difference. Also how many litres of fuel. You can do it yourself by dividing the liters of fuel into the kilometers and multiplying the price you paid for a liter of fuel.
