Assuming you're replying to the most recent post, that one is a 2013 and I don't think any of the new Kia/Hyundai transmissions use SP-III. All of the newer ones I'm familiar with use SP-IV (aka Type4), which is quite a bit different fluid than SP-III.

And to the poster of that thread, you will find the fluid type listed in the specifications section of the manual. Also much better to start a new thread, because this one is all about the older gen transmissions.

All you need is Google nowadays, search for "kia optima 2013 manual pdf" and here you are:

http://www.kia.ca/content/ownership/...3optima_en.pdf

So, under Section 8.4, page 379 you can find out ATF is SP-IV.
