I'm trying to do a radiator flush but I'm not sure what coolant to use
I bought my car new and have never seen this happen to a car. I have hundred thousand miles on my car now. the pealing started 4 months ago and I have been told nothing can been done. I have had many cars over the years and have never seen this. I was told everything works on a point system and was asked if my parents ever owned a kIA My parents have been dead for 20 yrs. I was then asked if any other members of my family owned one. I'm 70 yearse their for 4 hrs. crazy. I do take my car to be serviced every 3 months at my own place and if anything needs to be done it is, and at a lower price then what KIA charges. I was told the more points I got the better my chances were to have something done. Really? The DM was not helpful at all and would not ever suggest what i could do. My next step after this will be the TV station.

It doesn't blow, the light on the panel doesn't come on and the light for the front window defrost will not go off.
My car cranks fine. When I put it into drive and give it some gas it cuts off sometimes. Then I can drive about a mile at good speed but as soon as I come to a complete stop to start driving again my car only goes about 5mph and then it won't accelerate at all.
My air conditioning in my 2012 Kia Optima EX GDI non turbo runs fine while driving at higher speeds but at a stop light, stuck in traffic at low speeds it only blows warm or hot air. Only one fan on the car. What could be the problem
