Ok, so I am at my wits end with my 2000 kia sportage long body with auto, the kick down cable is stuffed and I need to replace it but can not find where it attaches on the transmission, I have followed it from the throttle body and it just disappears to on top of the transmission, I have a horrible feeling, I have to drop the transmission to get to it, please help.

My 01 doesn't have one but I remember when GM transmissions had them, the cable was on the side of the transmission, pointing straight at the transmission pan. Removed one bolt and pulled straight up and unhooked it from the rods hook. Kia may be different.

Yes unfortunately kia thought it would be fun to make it so you had to drop the pan, remove all the guts of transmission to get to the cable to release it, after bathing in god knows how much oil, the cable is out. Now I have to get one made up as genuine is about $600AUD, just hope I can put the transmission back properly.
