Transmission fluid spec.

I have seen two fluid spec from hyundai kia that reference sp-iv

The first is 00232-19052 SP-IV-RR for the 8-speed equus, I believe it is cheaper than the standard sph-iv.

The second is KIA type-4 sp-iv UM090-CH042, it is used in KIA Sorento.

It is also less than 00232-19045 which cost 19$-25$ per quart depending on dealership.

Amsoil also makes the signature fuel efficient ATF than list sph-iv as suitable for use. Lastly there are the ATF+4 that is cross compatible with SP-III.

Any additional info with regard to fluid compatibility to our SPH-IV is welcomed.

There is also 04500-00115 Hyundai-SPIV hyundai fluid.

ATF SP-IV 04500-00115

A russian site charge 13.30 per liter. Personally I wouldn't buy from such no name fluid, but the price is what I want to pay for a quart of SP-IV, 19-25 dollar is a rip-off and I hope many of you agree, it would be the last resort to buy it at a stealership.

Just shop around at different dealers and buy the fluid. Some may say the fluid is compatiable, but that may be subjective when the transmission goes out. Don't cheap out.

I'm sure the Kia SP IV is the same as Hyundai SP IV, but that's as far from OEM as I would go. Shop dealers, let your fingers do the walking.

There are plenty of universal ATF, but few with SP-IV spec. The KIA and Equus SP-IV RR/type 4 seem like good alternatives, The question is are they cross compatible?

My total cost to have the dealership do the transmission service at 60,000 miles was $190. This gets me all the way through the 100K warranty, and beyond. I have no worries about a potential warranty claim being scrutinized. How much would I really be saving to do this myself?

If you use OEM fluid $125, that assuming you have all the equiptment to change your own oil.

I want to spend $75 not including tools for the fluid change. That is $15 per quart including tax.

If you have an issue and its not Hyundai approved (not compatible, approved...different words) then you are in the same boat of having to fight that your fluid was ok whether it was or not. And good luck having "other" company provide you with documentation that is was ok.

$125, while a lot of money even in my book, isn't worth fighting over if you get a TRUE flush and fill. Not a drain and fill. With my now gone Rav I did a flush and fill and the fluid was 9 bucks a quart and I pumped 14 quarts through before it was clean. I am ALL for DIY...but do it with the correct fluid...don't skimp. You never know what part of the chemical make up is important to operation.

I want to establish connection if any between kia sp-iv type 4, sp-iv-RR and hyundai sph-iv.
The same connection that diamond sp-iii and hyundai sp-iii have.

SPH-IV cost 100 plus tax for drain and fill. If I buy type 4 it is $55, therefore a little research warrant the savings.
Sorento use 2.4 GDI and a 6-speed auto transmission.
