I have the same problem, I'm cureenlty going to try Step one and, Replace the Transmission Fluid,

I'm doing this becuase, the Kia Spectra need a special transmission Fluid that the last owner or person might not have put in.

Number two reason is because from my knowledge old transimission fluid will do this also.

Do it yourself to save money search it up on google, thats how i learned.

Car is jerking when slowing down to stop at a stop sign then starts in wrong gear. No engine light on. issue resolved during the colder months,now warming so issue back.What could cause this?


You need to have the transmission inspected. If it has over 60,000 miles on it and the fluid in the transmission has never been changed do that first.

Is this an automatic? P1527, Basically, the tcm is telling the pcm to turn on the lite. You could have tranny problems? Could be issue with transmission range sensor? I saw a service bulletin, kt2007020701, that is a relearn procedure, if the pcm--tcm or transmission has been replaced. I don't know if relearn will help or not?
