The Importance of Kia Transmission Service

There’s no denying that like your engine, the transmission is one of the hardest working components of your luxury SUV or sedan. The transmission, regardless of whether you have a vehicle with a manual transmission, automatic transmission or CVT, helps to offer smooth handling and precise cornering on the road.

Just like your motor oil, the transmission fluid can degrade over time which impacts lubrication to the working parts of the system. Your vehicle’s transmission needs lubrication that is clean and free from varnish, sludge and particles. During a transmission fluid flush, the ASE-certified technicians at our Kia Service Center inspect the drain pan, the cooler line and fluid level before using our flushing machine to remove dirty fluid.

In addition to fresh fluid, we also add a cleaning solution to the system that services as a conditioner to ultimately maximize how your vehicle uses fuel and performs. After Kia transmission service, you’ll notice improved performance and better fuel economy on the road.

If you suspect you’re having transmission problems or need automatic transmission service, contact us for a fuel inspection of the transmission fluid exchange, pan gasket, transmission pan and transmission repairs.

When to Schedule Transmission Service

Most vehicles require transmission service and a transmission flush every 30,000 miles or every two years. However, there are some factors that can affect this recommended timeline from your manufacturer as detailed in your owner’s manual.

If you drive in harsh weather conditions on a consistent basis or drive with your foot hovered over the brake pedal, this can add additional stress to the transmission and engine and speed up the recommended maintenance schedule for transmission service.

There are also some common symptoms or signs you may notice that indicate you need automatic transmission service or a transmission fluid flush. One of the most common signs is the appearance of the transmission fluid. If you smell a burning odor or notice that the fluid is dark and cloudy, this indicates a problem with the system.

Some drivers may notice a grinding sound or difficulty shifting or accelerating when they need Kia transmission service. If your vehicle’s check engine light illuminates, we recommend you schedule transmission service right away to avoid costly auto repairs in the future.

Routine Care For Your System

In between service visits, it’s important to stay in tune with what your vehicle needs. In order to prolong the life of your vehicle and maximize performance, the certified technicians at our Kia Service Center recommend that you inspect the transmission fluid on a regular basis. If the fluid is dark and cloudy, contact us right away for a transmission fluid flush.

We also recommend keeping an eye on your cooling system. This system works in conjunction with your transmission and engine and when the vehicle overheats or the coolant is low, this can add more pressure and stress to the working parts of the engine or transmission.

Your driving habits can also impact how often you need transmission service. We recommend keeping your foot off the brake pedal when driving if you do not need to stop as this causes the transmission to work harder. Scheduling routine maintenance and regular inspections of your system can also ward off costly repairs. The team at our Kia service center is here to perform inspections of your vehicle’s working parts as well as oil change service and tire rotations.

Primarily, communicate any concerns you have with our team when scheduling transmission service or a transmission flush. We are here to help you make the most of what your vehicle has to offer.
