    I wonder is there a transmission vent that is clogged and not allowing the transmission to breath. Kia as a car manufacturer put a lot of great technical information and work shop manuals on line for free for Kia owners. www.kiatechinfo.com , you may find an image of the transmission showing the vent hose.
