Hi and welcome to FixYa!

If the check engine light is on then you should have it scanned. On a scan tool it will read the fault and by then you'll know what to fix.

Hope this helps and thank you for using Fixya!

My check engine light/overdrive flashes on my 2000 kia sephia what could be the problem?

There are many different sources for the light to come on. Anything that caused combustion to fail, commonly called a misfire will set the light. Various sensors such as oxygen sensors that evaluate the exhaust before and after the gases are burned in the converter. Transmission codes may set the check engine light to appear. If the car is running okay, get it fixed in a reasonable amount of time such as within the month. It will probably save you fuel if you do. However if the Check engine light is flashing, you should not be driving it as damage is being done to the converter.

No Dip Stick for trans fluid on 98 Kia Sephia!

The transmission fluid needs to be replaced and checked at a transmission shop or the dealer. In the manual is the information you need to when the transmission is due for service to keep your car running 100% and to keep the warranty valid. Good luck and hope this helps.
