I don't drive a sportage, but quite familiar with slipping trannys'. When changing the tran oil, many mistakenly drain the oil and refill. Huge no no.Hi
I have a 02 kia sportage 4x4 and the auto tranny started to slip. I drained the tranny fluid and added the recommended amount of new fluid. Now the tranny slips even worse then before ??
I double checked for leaks and to make sure I added the correct amount of fluid, Any auto tranny advice would be Greatly appreciated !!
Is there a method for the average joe to do a pressure drain? I'm thinking of changing my tranny fluid & filter since I don't know when it was done last (if ever).I don't drive a sportage, but quite familiar with slipping trannys'.

The new atx oil just mixes in with debris left behind from the old oil hence - bigger problems and more slips. Always always get the guy who is changing the oil to perform a pressure drain. This forces all the old oil out AND debris. This is true for many specific tranny designs - but since the average joe has no clue of what type of tranny they have, theres no harm if done. While you're at it INSTALL an auxiliary oil cooler! Its a Cheap add on for tons of worry free driving and toeing.
Good luck in the rebuild.
