Hello and Thank you for choosing Just Answer. My name is ***** ***** I will be the Kia Expert assisting you today.

It sounds like internal transmission problems like slipping clutches. This can be caused by fluid that has not been changed in a while and is not lubricating correctly causing the clutches inside to start slipping. There is not much you can do in this case, more than likely you will need to have the transmission replaced or rebuilt with new clutches. You can try adding an additive to the transmission that is specifically made for slipping transmissions.
