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.

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.

06 kia spectra how do your adjust the shift cables on a manual trans all forward gears are fine problem is with reverse no problem untie we changed the clutch


The clutch is not clearing properly ,so wait a while for it to level itself off ,to get reverse in the meantime you stop engine ,put in reverse then start engine ,if after a while it still doesnt work and tries to jump out of gear you will have to strip the gearbox and change the dog gear

When you had the tranny fluid flushed, did you have them do a tranny service? This means they remove the pan and replace the filter, flush it and then refill. They also clean out the bottom of the tranny pan where all the yuck settles. My GMC products also have a magnet charged filter in the bottom to attract and hold fine metal particulates.

I have a 2006 Kia spectra . At about 70 mph the rpm gage will jump 2 or 3000 rpms every 4 or 5 seconds. I can feel a slight jump when it does. It almost feels like the trans. slips but I'm not sure. It has...


more than likely it IS your trans (servos that provide pressure to shift or a clogged filter try a flush before you change fuid AND filter) however it could be in the elec.system (wire short or bad plugs) change plugs and wires this may cure your problem and if not you don't loose anything but gain a tune-up. also could be fuel injectors or filter use a good fuel injector cleaner addative for 3 or 4 tankfulls and see if this helps.

When you put the car in gear, do you feel it trying to move in any gear? usually if one gear goes you still have the others. I would make sure the shifter linkage is hooked up and in the right position. Not saying the trans could be bad but it's a lot cheaper to check the other (possibilities) before the trans. and torque convertor. I would even try changing the fluid and filter.
