Transmission? Help!


Recommended Posts

Hey guys, I'm new here. This is my first post and I really need some help. My fiancee's car has been acting strange the past few days. She has a 2004 Kia Rio. Whenever the RPM's are around 1000 the car seems to go into some sort of overdrive or something. I'm not entirely sure how to describe it, its like the engine is straining whenever her foot is not on the accelerator. Prior to the start of this, it used to make a low hum but now its a very loud hum and practically shakes the car. My VERY limited experience with cars leads me to believe it has something to do with transmission but I really am not entirely sure.


We are going to be taking it in as soon as possible but considering we need to finish paying for our wedding I'm just trying to potentially have an idea of what to expect when we bring it in as well as possibly what it should cost.


I'm really not that great at cars, I can change oil, headlights/bulbs, and do some electrical work but other then that I really don't know much and it seems that everytime I go into a shop I get told by someone after the fact that I got ripped off or the shop replaced way more than they needed. So any help would be appreciated.


Thanks again guys!
