    How do you check the tranny fluid level? I want to change the fluid but got to know how to check the level first.

    I have a 2012 Kia Soul special edition with 128,000 miles. It is having a down shifting problem. We had the tranny fluid changed 6 months to a year ago because it was time and because it was rough shifting from 2nd gear to 1st gear on a down hill slow down to stop. The rough shifting stopped for...

    Hello We have a 2010 Soul. Base model. Just under 150K miles on it. Its happened before but this weekend on our trip to Savannah Ga and back at times when I hit 80+ mph I would lose the Eco mode. By losing I mean once the speed dropped down to 75mph or less the ECO mode would not reappear. Then...

    For almost 30 years I've preferred manual transmissions to "mushmatics"... But, we just picked up my wife's new 2013 hamster this morning and I must say I love the electronically controlled manual (aka "automatic") a lot... ... but when playing with "sport mode" pushing UP for 2nd will take...

    I have a 2012 Soul Base and noticed that the engine hesitates while shifting from first to second. It only does this when the engine is warm. It may do it while shifting between other gears, but it is not as noticeable as the first to second shift. I take off in first (duh), then shift to...

    I'm fretting over my Soul choice, based upon numerous reviews I've read regarding rough ride & wheel size, as well as manual v. automatic transmission. Obviously, larger wheels affect ride quality, and the Sport is tuned even stiffer, so that model is easy to rule out. My real choice is...

    When Kia introduces the 6speed manual tranny next year, I wonder how easy of a swap it would be. I assume the 6 speed will be matched up with the current engines???? Or are they planning on changing the engines also?

    Our 2010 with 3600 miles on it has acted up a couple times,(not shifting right) it just reved once trying ti shift from a stop sign, and going down the highway after downshifting to go up a hill it would wait a long time before it would fall back into high gear. So to have a record on file I...

    WTF! I was driving home at 4 in the morning and all of a sudden the car sounded like it shifted into reverse real fast then back into drive, kinda like a loud thud. Now it will only shift into reverse and third gear. Also when I shift between gears the whole cars rocks really hard. I checked the...

    Hi all. I was wondering if anyone has the same problem that I am having. When driving around town, when I get into 2nd gear, it occassionally grinds. Yes, I am pushing the clutch in all the way... :p I even tried to keep the clutch pushed in for a full 2 seconds, and the grinding still...
