The transmision will not shift. What would cause this?
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.
Door actuator makes a buzz-noise when locked or unlocked. Now the driver door does not lock automatically, and key fob will not work the locks.
i pulled the fuel line off the fuel rail and little fuel came out
it has a in tank fuel filter and pump set up
The rpm needle when slowing down or turning gets very close to zero and then car turns off. The rpm needle when car is in park bounces between 1to 0 without car turning off. When car is in park and I press on gas pedal and have RPM needle reach 3 and let go of gas pedal the needle gets stuck on 2.5 RPM. Check engine light is not on. Found air hose that was suppose to be connected to air cleaner housing was loose and disconnected. I reconnected it and tighten it, but problem still continues.
After it wouldn't start, I tried to jump it. Nothing. Towed it
To local shop. Code was 625. No spark to engine.
He couldn't fix it. Towed to kia dealer. They say needs a
New throttle relay system, alternator, drive belt.
What to believe?
The air conditioning unit is locking up and makes a horrible noise. It is also starting to smoke and smell god awful.
While turning a corner in the rain, I slid into a water intake gully, which appears took out the front supension rod, and right tire. My speed was low, but the impacted huge. The steering wheel was ripped from my hands and I ended up at a 90 degree angle on the other side of the road. Just had it towed. New car, without the change in insurance to include collision. Any idea of starting costs to repair?
My car came with P215/50/17 tires on alloy rims. This is a low profile tire, looks sexy but a bad idea. I live in the Northeast and in the last couple of winters the potholes are terrible and because the aspect ratio is 50, the tire does not have sufficient cushioning to absorb the impact and the rims get damaged which is very expensive to repair. I went to a tire place to ask to mount P215/65/17 tires on these rims and they refused. The only argument they had was that the larger front wheels may rub against the body during turns but there is at least 3-4 inch clearance right now, so why would this be a problem? I personally wonder if the car handling may be compromised. What do you think?
My car revs up and down & the rpms needle moves up & down, like if I was putting my foot on the gas to make it rev. It happens when I'm sitting waiting and car is running (warming up) and in parked. but when I put car in park, it seems ok. No check engine light came on. Any ideas as to what might be wrong?
Fob suddenly quit working. Changed battery, but still doesn't work. Is there anything I can do or will the fob have to be replaced?
replaced passenger seat for $1,000. in 2012 and come to find a recall on airbag due to malfunctioning switch.
Missing. Say's #2 missfire & multiple misfire. This model year is split between 6 packs 1 4 each cyl, & 1 pack 4 all 6. My car has 1. Don't know what 2do. Maybe new computer?
In park or driving I notice that of a split second my car shakes and makes this low growl noise and the headlight dim. The shake feels as if the engine wants to die or stall out. Its never died and it always starts. I had auto zone check battery and alternator- no error codes . no warning lights on. Just had a oil change and the serpentine belt and tensioner pulley replace by a low budget auto shop that will never work on my car again.
Airbag was deployed and now car will not start and run
the car wouldn't start but has a little gas from the gas hand.
trunk door wont lock when closing it
it wont lock when trying to close it
