My 2009 Kia Rondo has stopped shifting into the overdrive gear. Is controlled by a sensor somewhere? If so what & where is it located?

Asked by Sep 06, 2014 at 11:41 PM about the 2009 Kia Rondo LX

Question type: Maintenance & Repair

Transmission will not shift into overdrive for highway driving causing engine to rev up to
over 2000 RPM.  There also is a loud roar which sounds like it is coming from the right
front of the vehicle.  I have tried shifting into neutral with my speed up and the roar does
not go away.  Thanks for any assistance.

The loud roar might the a wheel bearing, the transmission not shifting could be something internal to the trans or a solenoid. Have it looked at before things get worse.
