Your Kia’s transmission is designed to work for many years, provided that you keep your transmission well maintained. If you don’t, then you may need a transmission replacement in the future.

The Transmission’s Function

The transmission’s function is to transfer power from the running engine to your vehicle’s wheels. To do this, the transmission employs a variety of gears plus a clutch or torque converter to allow it and the engine to work together despite the differences in rotation between the two parts.


Transmission, Transaxle, CVT

Transmission, transaxle, and CVT are all terms commonly used to refer to the transmissions. Here is a breakdown of each one.



Transmission is often used as an umbrella term for all types of transmissions. However, traditionally, the term transmission refers to a transmission that is located at the front of the vehicle that transfers power through a driveshaft to the rear wheels.


Transaxles are a type of transmission where the entire drive train is located in the front of the vehicle with individual drive shafts to each front wheel.


CVT stands for continuously-variable transmission and refers to a type of transmission rather than its location. CVTs use a set of pulleys with a chain or belt to provide power to the wheels rather than gears and bands like other transmissions.


Basics of a Transmission Service

Modern transmission services are fairly straightforward. Here is a rundown of this type of service.

Transmission Inspection
First, your vehicle’s existing fluid levels are checked and the transmission’s exterior is examined for leaks, damaged hoses, or frayed wires. The technician will also take your car for a road test to make sure that the transmission is performing as it should.

Transmission Fluid Exchange
The transmission fluid and filter are both removed and replaced. Changing these items is essential because dirt and debris cause added friction and premature wear.

Signs of Transmission Trouble

If you don’t have your transmission service done as needed, or you allow your transmission fluid to run low and let your transmission become overheated, then you could end up with the following problems and may require a transmission replacement:

  • Erratic shifting
  • Grinding noises
  • Burning smell
  • Delayed shifting (transmission slips and then suddenly kicks in)
  • Trouble keeping the manual transmission in gear

If your vehicle displays the above symptoms, or you need transmission service, and you are in the Gainsville, Cascade Wood, McEver, Alpharetta, Cumming, or greater Atlanta, Georgia areas, then bring your vehicle into Carriage Kia for service.
