2012 Kia Sedona

Post by borocollision » Wed May 31, 2017 5:08 pm

HI, we have a 2012 Kia with a 3.5 V6 Automatic. Customers first indication of issues was as he said it was reving up to move and he tried to check fluid but no dipstick. Now we have 2 codes which were gear 1 and gear 3 ratio out of range. It also exhibits constant in gear while running like when the clutchs weld to the frictions. No reverse, but will pull the motor down even in park and neutral if you apply power, however it will release when engine is shut down. Didnt try to drive or road test, but was wondering if there is any common issues before I stick my head too far in! Its just 3K miles out of warranty and dealer won't even look at it. Thanks.

Nobody? Well we drained it. The ATF was equivalent to 40 year old 90 weight (black) with powered metal. I assume the clutchs fried and he forced the issue melting the plates to the frictions. direct drive! Not even going to attempt to rebuild. Replace trans, and radiator and send it on its way. Thanks anyway.
