hi there,

Im cam and ill help you with what you are looking for today!

I have located 2 manuals for you.

1st is a chilton manual and is very inexpensive but should have almost everthing you are looking for service wise.

here is the link for this one :

this second one is a dealer manual and is alot more extensive than the haynes manual, but is 10 x the money.

It all depends how extensive you want to get into your repairs.

Thanks Cam:I am in Puerto Rico. I took the car to a small repair shop and now the guy tells me that the problem is with the valve body but he doesn’t have the manual for the five speeds version. The car is running in third gear only. If I can get a on line manual or diagram of that valve body, that may help. I need it as soon as possible.Thanks again!

Hi Cam:It is a 2.4 engine, 5 speeds trans. Pin KNAGE123365067326. I know nothing about transmission, but I think that the problem is with the assembly back of the valve body. I heard them talk about the position of the steel balls or something like. They also changed some selenoids. I took to the Kia dealer and they quoted me $1,800 to change the valve body and I can’t afford it. The scanner code is P0700.Thanks again!
Expert:  camerontech replied 1 year ago.

ok, ill do some digging and see what i can come up with. thanks for the code.

that helps

hi again,

ive been doing some searching and i cannot find any dignostic flow charts for that direct code, or even find any information that i think might help.

Im going to opt out and see if another tech can point you in the right direction.

po700 is a code showing there are transmission codes.. You will need a good scan tool to retrieve the transmission codes
