Drive it around for abotu 5 mins. park on level ground. With the car running in park with the parking brake on pull the dipstick out wipe off the tip with a rag put it all the way back in then pull it out again and look for where the fluid has touched the dipstick. It's usually got a range of where it needs to be. Just make sure it's in that range.

    There is usually 2 plugs one will be high and one will be low. The low one is the drain and the high one is the fill. Some plugs have a dip stick on the other side of them. And some are just a plug that need to be filled until fluid just starts to run out of the hole. Let me know if this helps.

Auto Transmission problem: Feels like it doesnt shift into OD and accelerates slow as if it stays in one gear. When put in 1st, it feels like the park brake is up of you're riding the brakes.


have you check the oil level on trans and have you change the oil on the engine lately check the levels on both. Usually on engine is too much oil car drags and on trans if low oil it usually stays in gear to protect the trans. your car is telling you check oil. No lubrication some warning lights do not come up for trans

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.

What is the trans fluid service interval?


Hi,

This is the most overlooked service of vehicles today.

Due to the advanced technology in electronic transmissions, it is now more important than ever, to regularly change the trans fluid. Most auto transmission failures are a result of bad fluid or incorrect levels.

Whilst most manufacturers suggest fluid changes around 60 - 80,000miles, if you intend to keep the vehicle for a few years, then I strongly reccommend following the new standard of 30,000mile intervals.

This will involve flushing the transmission & cooler tank (with clean trans fluid), changing the trans oil filter and refilling with new fluid to the CORRECT level.

Use ONLY manufacturer's specified transmission fluid (not all fluids have the same properties).

NEVER overfill the transmission case.

Modern day electronic transmissions rely on good oil pressure to perform well. Regular trans oil changes will ensure this, as well as avoiding costly transmission repairs.

Cheers,
