Do I need to remove my transmission to change the freeze plug in a 2001 Kia Rio?

There are many freeze plugs in the block and heads of engines. Some may very well require the removal of the transmission, others may require removal of the entire engine. It is all a matter of where the freeze plug is located and the accessibility to it for replacement.

2001 Kia rio automatic but it sounds like a standard, like I need to shift gears. Transmission ????

If it doesnt shift at proper speeds when its driving, then yes, the transmission. Make sure the fluid is full when engine at operating temp., idle. in park. If it's full, and no obvious shifter linkage problems, then you need to have it looked at by a transmission shop.
