I had been working on three other cars all day and saved the oil change on my 2010 Forte for last as I had never owned a "foreign" car before. Tired and a little out of it, I crawled under and took out the drain plug for the transmission. I saw the transmission fluid come out and immediately put the plug back in, but maybe a quart drained out before I realized what it was and got the plug back in. I want to put the quart back in before driving it anywhere but cannot find the transmission fluid type anywhere. Not in the manual, not on the dipstick, nowhere I can see.

Does anyone know the automatic transmission fluid type on a 2010
Kia Forte 2.0 Liter?

thx

shoot, thx for pointing that out. I looked in the back and saw the specs for fluids but when it didnt say 5w20 for oil I guess my eyes just quit taking in information! It was exactly there. Thanks!
