Question about Kia Spectra
I have had this more frequently as of late with the age of the vehicle. The internal wiring harness of the transmission usually goes bad causing this concern when it gets hot it causes it to throw it in limp home mode. Which reverts to 3rd gear.

SOURCE: transmission faul code po700
(DTC) CODE # P0700....Transmission Control System (MIL Request)
Translation: Transmission Control Module (TCM) Malfunction or Failure.
P0700 Information Code
The Transaxle Control Module (TCM) monitors the malfunction of sensors and actuators relating to transaxle control. If any malfunction is detected, the TCM informs the PCM by sending a signal (P0700 code). P0700 means that a code has been set in the TCM.
This code is for information ONLY. If this code is present, check for transaxle codes.
So basically, the P0700 code is telling you to check the TCM for a transaxle DTC. The TCM can not turn on the check engine light so it has the PCM do it. It needs to be scanned with trans capable scanner to see what the trans code or problem is. You should have 1st, 2nd, and Reverse because the car is operating in limp-mode. Since you said the speedometer doesn't work, my guess would be a faulty (VSS) vehicle speed sensor.

you need new clutches---look at the fluid
it should be pink in color if it is yellow or brown you are talking a bit of $$ since the tran has to be removed from the truck

If your gonna do it yourself, then, sure replace the filter as well. If you have one of those exchange machines do it, the machine, in my experience, gives a reading while it's exchanging. Apparently the lower the reading, the less flow thru the system, usually meaning the filter. Hope this helps.
