Where can I find a diagram to fix the vacuum seal on the transmission? Also, my kia has a hard time accelerating, especially when it gets colder, and it doesn't get up hills very well. Why is this? Could it be because of this vacuum on the transmission?

Kia makes the service manuals available on their Kia technician site.
It is free to register. You can look up TSB's, recalls, and service manuals for any model. The "Shop" link on the left, once you're logged in, is the gateway to the shop manuals. You'll need to use Internet Explorer, it doesn't seem to work completely with FireFox.

Of course, it is always recommended to diagnose the problem before replacing parts (spending money).
