My 2011 Kia Optima won't start, before we have been able to jump it. Now it just cranks and won't start.
I need to know where to go get it fix. I need to have dighostic
have you heard the sound that comes from MANUAL transmission cars when the gear is high on low speed and you try to accelerate or drive uphill? its like the pistons are rattling...
my car is a AUTOMATIC kia optima 2015 and it makes this noise all the time
it's like the car is too lazy to change the gears from 4 to 3 or 2 when i hit the gas on low speeds.
two places when this sound is not heard: putting the transmission on manual and keeping it low (low as it SHOULD be)
or hiting the gas pedal very very very lightly.
no noises when stops, did happen like every 3 wks now 2 or 3 times a day
I bought a used 2013 Kia Sorento at 64000 miles late 2013 for 25,000 on a 5 year finance. In addition I purchased an extended waranty for 2300 whch would cover the car for 48000 miles. I keep up regulare maintenance through the dealership. My engine recently went out at 116,000 miles. My extended warranty expired at 112,000 miles. The cost of the repairs is $8,300, I currently owe $17,000. What should I do, should I A. Pay for the repairs and try to look for an extended warranty to try and cover the maintance on the car which is almost at 120,000. B. Pay for the repairs and trade the car in thats valued at around $8,000-$9,000 and roll the negative equity into a newer vehicle. Which would have to be a higher end vehicle to mask the amost 9,000 dollars worth of negative equity. or C. Pay the repairs and do not purchase an extended warranty which could cost anywhere from a $1,500 to $3,000. I currently make a payment on my car for $460 a month and on another car for $444. The car for $444 has 60,000 miles on it and is interest free and only has about 5,000 owed on it.
Kia Forte sometimes will NOT start. NOT battery, NOT starter solenoid, all connections are good and it will start eventually after so many tries. HELP!!!
It has happened twice before but by pulling the fuel pump fuse and disconnecting battery (dash idiot lights stayed on) it corrected itself.....But its not correcting itself this time
I have a 2009 Kia spectra it is over heating both when moving and when at a stop I have checked ac fan it's working and so is the fan behind the radiator The car is not leaking any fluid that is noticeable could it be a clogged radiator or possible the water pump
The steering wheel make a clunk noise when turn

Actuator seems to be working but handle will nit open the hatch
Kia 2005 spectra overheated and started smoking on the way home
Added water to the radiator nothing ran out. Turned off the a/c and it seemed to cool down what happened.

I have a knocking around the pulley side of the engine. No check engine light. sounds like it is coming from the idler?? or crankshaft pulley. i cannot tell. Thanks.
i have replaced the compressor, condenser, dryer, accumulator, and radiator. when i try to fill with r134a it doesn't take much and i don't think my compressor is running. i have an expansion vale to replace too, but i need to know if i going down the right path or not. Thanks.
