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 1 year ago.
No check engine light and I don't know that it ever has been changed
Expert:  internal88 replied 1 year ago.

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

Customer: replied 1 year ago.
I'm not with the car right now. I can try that tomorrow after work
Expert:  internal88 replied 1 year 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.
