Are you sure it has a spin on filter?A lot of the kia models deleted the external filter in the later 2001 model year. They only had a internal filter that was only changed when the transmission got rebuilt. Here is a parts diagram of your transmission it only shows the internal filter in it.
I see that I looked at the oriellys parts website and saw a spin on filter also.I looked on the mtichell 1 repair manual online we use on this website and could see the parts diagram showing the filter. Those are the ones I posted for you if there is a spin on filter which looks like there is it should be easy to see. Its going to be on the side of the transmission facing the radiator or the rear of the van.I would say it would be facing the radiator thats my first thought. Let me know what you find.
