Kia Transmission Repair and Clutch Service in NE and SE Portland ORWhat Can go Wrong with my Kia’s Transmission?

Automatic transmissions depend on fluid pressure to operate, and problems can arise from the torque converter, the filter, burnt fluid or just low fluid levels. Gears are changed using a series of clutch bands that can wear out over time, and the servo motors and electronics that control them can fail.

A manual transmission replaces the electronic controls with driver-operated components. Instead of clutch bands, there are shift forks and servos that engage the gears. Instead of a torque converter, power is transferred between the engine’s flywheel and the transmission’s clutch plate, operated by a cable or hydraulically-operated clutch pedal. Like any car, the first thing to come to mind when thinking of manual transmission problems in a Kia is clutch repair, but poor adjustment and wear and tear are just as likely to cause problems.
