Report: Software Update Available to Correct Transmission Issues
Kia Sportage Problem
Model Years Affected: 2005, 2006
Reprogramming the transmission control module with the latest Kia transmission software may fix abnormalities in the automatic transmission and erroneous transmission-related Check Engine Light illumination. Software updates are commonly most effective on newer vehicles. Higher mileage vehicles may exhibit a similar symptom caused by a component failure. However, whenever major transmission repairs are performed the transmission software should be checked and updated as necessary.
Improved cooling fan blades are available. The original fan blades were replaced under a manufacturer recall because they cracked and failed, resulting in the engine overheating.
