Customer Question

I was driving my 2012 Kia Optima and it just stopped moving forward. If you hit the gas it revs up but won't go.

Hello,I'm Brandon- Kia tech.

Is the check engine light ON?

Also when was the last time the transmission fluid was changed?

Customer: replied 11 months ago.
No check engine light and I don't know that it ever has been changed
Expert:  internal88 replied 11 months ago.

How about putting the transmission in the lower gear ? still the same

Customer: replied 11 months ago.
I'm not with the car right now. I can try that tomorrow after work
Expert:  internal88 replied 11 months ago.

Ok, try that out tomorrow. Also make sure there is no transmission leak on the ground. It looks to me to me the transmission is giving up.
