Question about 2004 Kia Optima
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.
