12/15/2011 JimmYou can purchase either one - though the remanufactured transmission will be much less expensive - probably half as much if not less. The better remanufactured units will have better warranties - for example 3 years or more.

headache - 2001 Kia Rio - Transmissions & Drivetrains - 11/25/2011i have the hole axle off i cleaned all connecting parts and moving parts on the axle shaft and inside the cv joint,iv done everything the book says to do but the dam cv joint just wont budge off the axle shaft! WHY???IF ANYBODY,SOMEBODY has any suggestions im open ...
11/21/2011 HouseCallAutoFirst of all, nobody but almost nobody is changin freakin CV boots and this is the reason that you are now dealing with. Buy a reman axle for $50 and stop fighting to get the CV joint off. By the time you get done beating it off, the axle and joint may be damaged. Not tryin to be a wise guy, just the facts.
11/25/2011 dphinAs I have not done a kia cv I can't help on the boot. There are Google sites, just
plug in the words How to replace..bla bla and site will be of help.
HOWever; I would replace the entire shaft with boots attached since
a torn boot may have damaged the joint and you end up changing
the shaft and boots anyway. CHANGE one shaft at a time.
There are sites to buy the parts from which could be saving
you more money. Unless you get the parts from a dealer
you will be buying after market parts anyway. Some dealerships
sell after market parts as well. you can get the tension spring pin
from the dealership/OEM source.
The spring pin/ roll pin holds the shaft in the differential.

Dee - 2009 Kia Spectra - Transmissions & Drivetrains - 10/31/20116000 miles on this car. Dealership says the clutch is burned up. Car is 2yrs old and no warnings lites to indicate service is needed except for driving slower than usual in city limits.
10/31/2011 Jimm6000 miles is not an excess amount of miles. Unfortunately, the clutch is considered as a normal wear and tear item; designed to wear out and be periodically replaced. You might check with the dealerships in your area - but do not be surprised if they give the same rationale.
phylicia - 2001 Kia Rio - Transmissions & Drivetrains - 10/30/2011my transmission was just replaced and its not shifting at all the shift linkage wants to shift but the transmission not willing to shift.

The car only has 23,000 miles. It is noticeable up front when turning 90 degrees from a stop and accelerating. There appears to be no loss of ...
dawn - 1999 Kia Sportage - Transmissions & Drivetrains - 10/17/2011my kia has @ 84,000 miles revs up when you step on the gas but does not move made worse when on an incline.
10/17/2011 Spoon SportsPossible Causes of Engine Hesitation or Stumble:
Dirty fuel injectors (cleaning the injectors often fixes this).
Bad MAP (manifold absolute pressure) sensor
Bad TPS (throttle position) sensor
Bad or dirty MAF (mass airflow) sensor
Low fuel pressure (leaky fuel pressure regulator or weak fuel pump)
Vacuum leaks (intake manifold, vacuum hoses, throttle body, EGR valve)
Bad gasoline (fuel contaminated with water or too much alcohol)
Sometimes, what feels like a hesitation is actually ignition misfire rather than lean misfire. The causes of ignition misfire may include:
Dirty or worn spark plugs
Bad plug wires
Weak ignition coil
Wet plug wires
10/17/2011 yboy82You should check/clean the MAF sensor (and its hose) in your vehicle and if possible diagnose your vehicle with a scan tool to verify if there is a stored troublecode.
