I am having a gear shifting problem with my Kia Sportage (4x4 Gasoline engine, 2009 version). taking off from an incline drive it is difficult to shift from first to second gear (grinding noise). Also noticed that sometimes the reverse gear refuses to engage, have to shift to neautray, release clutch, then redo the normal process in order to engage reverse gear. I have had this problem since the first day we bought the vehicle from the Kia dealer here in Seychelles. I have heard that this proble

I have a 1997 Kia Sportage (#KNAJA5278VA787759). The automatic transmission used to not shift into overdrive at 60 km/hr, but only after the engine was warm--after about 5 km of driving. The problem seemed confined to the highest gear only--shifting through the lower gears was smooth and predictable--and once shifting began into overdrive performance was good through out the entire range. I recently had major engine work done and now the transmission never shifts into overdrive. The performan

I purchased a 2001 Kia sportage ex, automatic transmission, about 2 1/2 months ago, and after I started driving it home, realized that it wont shift gears. AT ALL. The only way my dad got it to shift from first to second was by pressing the overdrive button on the side of the gearshift.. Then he could get it to shift into overdrive by holding down said button once he got the car up to about 50-55 mph.. Now nothing gets it to shift.. Has anyone encountered this problem, or just have suggestions?

Kia problems I have a 2002 kia sportage that the check engine light came on, had it read, it was code p1309. I can't find where the chassis accelerator sensor is located to check it out. Is it safe to drive like this? Also I am unable to get it out of park w/out using the bypass near the shifting lever. Thanks


The sensor is on the passenger side under the hood, it tells the PCM to ignore misfire signals from the engine when on rough roads, so yes it is safe to drive. ... 2002 Kia Sportage
