Seems like my 2008 Kia Rio wont go from low gear to drive

Asked by Apr 26, 2013 at 06:47 PM about the 2008 Kia Rio SX

Question type: Maintenance & Repair

Once in a while the low gear does not slip into drive. If I let it set for say 2 hours. It slides right into drive and lasts for about a day, on the way home if I got tied up in traffic, it would do the same thing. I have 3 different Mechanics look at it & they can't see anything that is wrong. Any help you can give me will be appreciated. Roy Fredrickson, Hemet, CA

Could try a filter change unless somebody else has a better plan.
