You should have a TCU, so, your KIA dealer can pull the stored data, as well as hook it up to their laptop during the road test which they will need to do. This is where I would start.

Expect to pay for diagnostic time obviously. Probably an hour at least.

I used to be the Used Vehicle Manager at a very large KIA store for years.

I am sorry to have to tell you but at 260K this poor transmission is at the end of its design expected life span.
If it gets worse, it might be best to look for another transmission.
