      Several possibilities; worn clutch, worn / faulty clutch master cylinder, worn / faulty clutch slave cylinder.


      Here are several possible on-line auto parts sources; www.autopartswarehouse.com, www.1aauto.com, www.rockauto.com. For example, they (RockAuto) list the clutch kit from around $129.00, and the clutch master cylinder from around $45.00 for your vehicle.

      Do not put in 90W oil or your AUTOMATIC transmission will need replacement within two minutes of starting it up. The correct weight oil is ATF SP-III. This is not sold everywhere. It has to say SP-III, not Mercon or Dexron. Of course if the transmission is a manual transmission (you did not say but assume that it is an automatic) then it would take 80W90 gear oil

      Check your clutch master cylinder for fluid, have you noticed any leaks? Could be a leak in the hydraulics for the clutch. A bad clutch master cylinder or slave cylinder could also be the problem. Last it could be the clutch itself.

      Could be a lot of things ie..broken clucth fork,spring diaphram, thruout bearing, clutch disc and leak-by of fluid in the salve cylinder.

      It could be the both clutch master and slave also the line you may need to be checked. Worst would be the fork.

    Is it normal for the Kia sorento to have a high pitch sound while in 5th gear.
    When I shift into 5th the engine makes a high pitch sound. The rpm stay around 3x.

      If the noise was not there all the time you owned it and then it showed up then it is not normal. So maybe now you will say you just purchased it, right?

    Standard 2008 Kia Spectra LX revs
    When i try to shift gears the RPM gauge increases, making the reving sound without my foot on clutch. The rpm goes up but the speed stay the same. 5th gear will not allow the car to reach over 70mph. when in 4th gear the rpm reaches 4000+. What is wrong?

      Not enough information given. Have a few questions to enable a better answer; how many miles are on the vehicle and / or on the clutch? Next question - does the transmission shift OK? Does the transmission engage properly in each gear; forward and reverse? How does the clutch and clutch action / engagement feel? Can you notice any noise, slipping, or chatter when engaging or disengaging the clutch?
      Your reply and answer to these questions with further details will help resolve the problems you are noticing.

      I do not agree. This car is under warranty through your dealer. Bring it to them and tell them your concern.
