For the Engine miss, changed the ignition plugs and done the engine tuneup. It was ok for two days and it started the miss again. Then I changed the Extension wire ignition coil and one ignition coil which was not firing. But the problem did not solved.
With this engine miss the petrol consumption has reducedto 4-5 kms per/litre even without A/c. Earliar it worked 10 kms per/litre with A/c. What could be the problem for this engine miss.

And for the speedometer it stops working after driving about 7-8 Kms. And if you stop the car for two hours and start driving again it stops working in another 4-5Kms. I have showed these problems to the Kia Engineers but did not get proper solution

when i get over 30-35mph, i start hearing a whining sound. the faster i go the louder it gets. when you get to about 65mph, it is so loud it is hard to hear conversations. i thought it was radial tires when it first started, it has done this about a year or so and is getting really loud. car drives fine otherwise. no problems at all.
