Transmission Service


The Transmission Fluid is a vital part of the transmission system, as it serves both as a lubricant and a hydraulic. However, the Transmission Fluid can become dirty, leak out of a damaged seal, or degrade due to the harsh conditions of the transmission system. If your Kia vehicle needs a Transmission Service, we welcome you to Kia Country of Hilton Head for your essential maintenance. Kia Country of Hilton Head is proud to offer quality service for all Kia models from the Low Country and nearby areas.

The Transmission Fluid is vital for the smooth operation of your Kia’s transmission. It lubricates, cools, and cleans the internal components of the transmission. Over time, the fluid can degrade, leak, or get contaminated by dirt and debris. That’s why Kia advises you to check the Transmission Fluid every 30,000 miles and replace it as needed. You can find the specific maintenance schedule for your Kia model in your owner’s manual. Additionally, you should pay attention to any signs of transmission trouble, such as slipping gears, grinding noises, or delayed shifting. If you notice any of these symptoms, you should bring your Kia to a certified service center as soon as possible. By following these guidelines, you can help extend the life and performance of your Kia’s  transmission.
