Kia Rio Automatic vs Manual Transmission

Automatic and manual transmission will often require an assortment of different fluids. Automatic transmission fluids are usually thinner and are often red or green in color. Manual transmission fluid or gear oil is more stout and thicker due to additives and other important compounds necessary to lubricate the gearbox and other components. Manual transmissions have a higher friction environment due to the way gears are changed, thus the lubricant is immensely different.

Not only are the fluids different between manual and automatic transmissions but the level of heat the fluids experience is exceedingly different. Automatic transmissions generate ample heat and thus the fluid in your transmission must be changed more normally. If you don't change your Kia Rio transmission fluid, your transmission will have unpredictable broken metal shavings and other corrosive material spread throughout the important components of your Kia Rio. You should normally check the fluid levels between your fluid and transmission flush service intervals. In many cases, manual transmissions don't come equipped with a dipstick to check your fluid levels, so it can be immensely difficult to do. Call or visit Nalley Kia for more information if your transmission doesn't contain a dipstick.
