BRAKES

2007 Kia Sportage • 69,500 miles

E car to a dealer ship and they said they foundp0700 &00717Yes I was wondering when replace the brake pads on my car and when can it actually become a safety hazard? The kia dealership had said that I should replace my rotors and pads on front and rear of our kia sportage. Also, we have a transmission issue where the engine light came on and went off a few times then started blinking then stayed off. Afterwards we had advance auto parts check the code and it was P0741.

The codes are telling you something is wrong with the transmission controls. P0717 is the main culprit for harsh and erratic shifting.

I don't think flushing the system is the solution to his. You need to check out the circuit. I told you to check the connectors and have you done them? You need to do as advised to get to the bottom of the problem and that requires testing and diagbnostics.

If external testings cannot find any fault, the problem would be internal and that would require stripping the trans to rebuild etc.

How is p0741 & p0700 related to the transmission sensor? Also, the transmission fluid being dirty; would that make the sensor react suddenly? And if the sensor is the issue; technically would that be considered a internally lubricated part within the transmission. If its not technically a internal lubricated mechanism/part it can't be repaired under warranty supposedly.

P0700 indicates one or more faults had been detected by the PCM. P0741 is a fault with the transmission torque converter circuit and it could be triggerred by P0717.
The sensor is a electrically control unit and it could be a wiring fault which I have already told you to check the connectors. If you are not going to follow advice, there is nothing else I can do to help you.

So the connectors on what, the sensors or somewhere else in the wiring

At the transmission there are connectors for solenoids and sensors. Check and ensure they are clean and plugged securely. Note if there are any signs of oxidations to the terminals.
