2011 Kia Optima QuestionsRefine by vehicle
I have every record of all of my oil changes on time, now my car is ruined but there is no recall on this?
Ran left front up on cement divider yr ago. Was difficult to back it off the divider. Steering has play when turn steering wheel to left sitting still. Whining noise gets louder when accelerate. Noise more prominent now than in beginning. Tire light came on recently. Put air in front tires but light still on. Dont know if that has anything to do with other issues. Nothing leaking under car. Steering mechanic issues, drive shaft shifted????
Happening more often, but usually happens after driving ten or more miles. Blows hot air.
After the car stalled, I tried restarting the engine by keyless start and manual start. Both wouldn't work. Noticed a very small amount of smoke coming from engine. When the hood was opened, the smell of an electrical burn was evident but no evidence of where the smell was coming from was found. Called Kia service and described issue to mechanic. I was asked if there was oil in the engine. When I checked...the engine was bone dry! No check engine, low oil pressure, or engine temperature light!! WTH? Where did all the oil go??
Satellite radio won't hold manual channel download. I have extended bumper to bumper and always had issues w/the signal (including FM!), dealership argues with me. Shouldn't that be warranty work?
When the car is cold the sound system works fine. After the car warms up and I turn the heater on. It gets warm in the car the I loss the audio from the sound system. If I turn the heat off and it cools down in the car the audio comes back on. Sometimes i can tap on the dash and the audio will come back on, but it goes off and on. There is a popping sound coming from the speakers.
Has anyone else ever had a problem where when driving along the power cuts out and restricts you to drive to 30mph, even when putting foot fully down there is no response in acceleration . After 10/15mins of driving at 30mph, then power came back.
This is a bit worrying especially when it occurred on major highway. Need to get diagnostic done, but wondering if this is common problem. My car only has 34,500 miles on it, which makes me wonder if I'm in for lots of trouble ahead.
I've visually inspected the door sensors and nothing appears to be damaged.
