    I have a 2009 Kia Borrego lx. I was told it needs oil but cannot find a dipstick or a port where I can even check the oil or fill it up. Is anyone able to point me in the right direction?
  3. Kia Carnival & Sedona 2006+
    '07 Kia Sedona - Almost immediately after left turns, the van either revs too high between gears, or (on larger slow turns) doesn't shift at all and engine hesitates hard (almost feels like it shuts off and brakes with the drivetrain) while briefly illuminating dash lights: Parking Brake...

    I did a drain and fill on the transmission as preventative maintenance. Used Valvoline Maxlife ATF. $18/gallon at Walmart. About 4-5 quarts came out, and it was dark! Fair amount of metal shavings on the magnetic drain bolt too. Decided to drive around and do another drain and fill. Pictured is...
  9. 1G (1993 - 2002) Sportage
    I have a 97 sportage. 128k miles. its grinding when it goes into gear. the clutch was just replaced. I think the synchronizers are going bad, because shifting at higher RPMs (like 2700 and up) it'll grind going into gear . so i', thinking i will change the gear oil (or at least put an additive...

  11. 3G (2012 - 2017) Rio
    2016 Kia Rio (auto transmission) So recently I've noticed every other day that after driving for a while, the display on the screen does not show which gear I'm in. I can continue driving normal, but the moment I need reverse, I'm unable to. I move into 'R' gear but the car wont move at all. I...
  12. Kia Stinger Forum
    I just received word from my dealer the transmission on my 2018 Kia Stinger GT2 will need to be replaced . I just hit 19,000 miles so I'm surprised to say the least. Thankfully it is under warranty, but I'm extremely disappointed in the reliability of my first Kia. I'm the only owner and I've...
  13. Kia Niro
    Less than 300 miles on new Niro PHEV and we started getting an occasional VERY loud bang that sounds like the transmission slamming into gear (sometimes loud enough that scares the s#*t out of me). It usually happens starting from a full stop but I think it has also happened at coasting speeds...
  14. 2016 - 2020 Sorento Forum
    I noticed when I select sport driving mode the 8th speed is not engaged even when driving at 110 KMH Is it normal ? I know sport mode is not as fuel efficient than all other modes and I wonder if any of you experienced the same situation. Since sport mode is made for performance it’s maybe the...
