Kia Rondo QuestionsRefine by vehicle
I had the timing belt replaced 25,000 miles ago about 2.5 years past? It is now leaking oil from the gasket covers. Should this be happening in such a short time?
ESC IS OFF
Also both normal and recirculating indicator lights glow when a/c selector is in one of the normal positions (head/feet, etc.) Diagnosed as Control Head problem. I don't find a part by that name - find Elec Engine Control Module or Elec Chassis Control Module. Which Module would apply or what else could be the problem?
Steering & braking. Dealership doesn't know what the problem is.
My light came on as I drove away from dealer repair shop the next day I returned and was told that it was the vehicle history light.
The year of the vehicle is actually a 2012. The front signal lights seem to be moody. Every so often one of the front signal lights will not turn on. But the other one will work. About 1-2 hours later it will be working again. It juggles between the left and right signal lights. The bulbs are not burnt out, they are new bulbs. Is there an exposed wire that I should be looking for?
Can I by-pass my air compressor for the serpentine belt. The pulley is bad and belt keeps slipping. My car is sitting at my job, would like to get it home to work on.
belt keeps slipping I'm assuming because the pulley bearing/clutch is bad. My car is stuck at my work need to get it home. So can I bypass the ac compressor?
My CD are stuck in my sterio . The CD won't change nor eject. An error message pop up.
We noticed a little vibration at 119827 and had new pads and rotors resurfaced. No brake pads ever before that and still at 158,000 no pads needed in back as they are still at 6. Always serviced at Kia.
Now every 20-24,000 miles rotors need resurfacing and this time front brake pads needing to be replaced. I'm confused as driving conditions haven't changed, I'm the only driver and have been the only driver. No problems for 120,000 miles and now every 20. Can anyone explain?
The blower seems to have sufficient power its just not coming through the vents like it should. what air is coming out is very cold. when changing the recirculate switch back and forth there is no noticeable change in the sound of the air. usually the air blowing sound is noticeably louder when recirculate is turned on. could there be a bad actuator? if so which one.
My 2.4 engine needs major work or needs to be replaced. The 2.7 engines are more available and are cheaper. Is it possible to just convert to the 2.7 engine?
It will crank but not turn over. We have replaced the timing belt and spark plugs and it still won't start. There is no codes on the code reader and the battery is good.
I drove it home but I could mash gas pedal and it wouldn't go hardly go over 10mph
Drove 10 miles first day and it was fine. Drove 2 miles 2nd day and light came on, help! Any ideas?
How to unlock 07 kia rondo out of theft mode?
their is a latch that lifts up the cargo floor to revel storage under it. Whre can I buy a replacement latch besides the dealer.
But occasionally it will come for a while and goes off
got an oil change, and it turned off momentarily while driving but i parked it and got it turn back on. today went to turn car on and it wont even turn over. need help asap please
I called kia about this and they didn't tell me that the rondo had a recall for the ESC light which is the stabilization issue. I'm wondering if anyone has problems related to this or is they hear a loud whirling noise when driving on the freeway or over 40 mph
6 months ago I noticed a whirring sound. Had it checked out and was told it's probably the power steering pump but that it doesn't HAVE to be replaced if I could stand the annoyance. However, the noise is getting louder and louder and is noticeable all the time. It gets louder as I accelerate. Now it seems ANOTHER loud noise is happening at the same time, especially on the highway. VERY LOUD. Sounds like my car is running high, not shifting properly(2500rpm @ 65mph)and is going to blow up. Have had all recommended maintenance done on my car in recent months. The only check engine light that has come on was right after we changed our battery and then it went off automatically a couple of days later.
