This is a big job for someone who is not mechanically inclined but....here it goes go buy a new clutch new tranny fluid and a haynes manual at the auto parts store your going to have to drain and drop your tranny ... BUY THE CLUTCH WITH THE TOOL theres an alignment tool needed to align the plates n bearings start by pulling off both tires, brakes and both cv axels be sure to remove the intermediate shaft from the tranny on the passenger side (should come out with the axel passenger side only) so do yourself a favor and buy an impact gun with at least 500 ft lbs torque youll need it also have handy your 14mm 17mm and 19mm impact sockets and remember this job usually runs around 1,200 bucks at firestone also DO NOT remove the bolt in the middle of the front springs under the hood just the four around it and the will pop out no prob and wont need to be clamped remove the starter behind your engine its under the oil filter also if your new to this sorta thing its gonna take you about 3 days to do it buy the impact gun if ur in a hurry look at a pawn shop have your flywheel machined its going to be accessible and it needs it hope this helps dont forget the book which you should already have bought anyway its good for your torque specs which you will also need a torque wrench for the clutch also dont crack open ur tranny this isnt a honda

I have a 1998 1.8L Kia Mentor and my clutch pedal won't sink to the floor but I can't get any gears.


There are 3 progressively difficult and expensive steps you can take. I have to assume that the Mentor is the same as a Sephia.
First: Check the level of fluid in your brake/clutch canister. It MIGHT have 2 separate canisters (like the 1995 Sephia.) But I doubt it.
Second: Check your hydraulic clutch cable and the unit at the transaxle. It may need to be bled.
Third (and most expensive): Replace your clutch and pressure plate. This is the most expensive as it requires removal of the engine.

I hope this helps you find the source of your difficulties.

2000 kia sephia the clutch pedal stays at the floor. How to resolve this?


hi, if the pedals on the floor the clutch cable has snapped. will need replacement. please locate the cable and see if it has a part number on the outer sleeve. this may be an easy fix it depends on routing through the firewall. if this is a hydrolic clutch the master cylinder is been leaking or either completely empty of (brake fluid used for the clutch) or the clutch pipe has burst (wo'nt HOLD ANY PRESSURE). the thrust bearing has gone through the diaphram (this is a large fingered spring on the clutch to release drive to the gearbox). the gearbox will need to come out if this is the case i hope i have answered and. gerry

I have a 2000 kia sephia, the clutch pedal is losing pressure every now and then after driving for like 30 mins


is a master cylinder leaking inside or a slave cylinder leaking.
look under car and see if slave is leaking.
for my money I would replace both cylinders because if one is going bad the other will also be worn out.

I have a 99 Kia Sephia and it will not move in any gear the clutch seems to be engaging and disengaging but the transmission will not spin the wheels in any gear


It sounds like a bad clutch. It is the clutch if you can change gears with the clutch out and the engine running.

No you don't, the plunger in the slave valve forces the fluid out.

Transmission fluid capacity for 2000 Kia Sephia?


The four speed automatic shows a total fill (that is all the fluid it can hold) is 5.7 Quarts. So if you just dropped the pan and relplaced the filter, you shouldnt need more than 4 quarts and likely you would have a little extra with that.
