Software Update Available Which May Correct Transmission Issues on Kia Amanti

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.

transmisson will not shift right. It jump when trying to shift and jerks the car. We put a used 2004 transmission in it and it still does the same thing.
