I have no more details.

When I turn my heat on my sportage idles at 3000+ when in park.

Negative cable gets hot, was running good, stopped to put gas and would just not start would turn over but would not start

My sister has a 2013 KIA Sportage. One day as she was getting out of it, she took the key out of the ignition and got out, but it was still in D (drive)! Is this normal for KIA Sportage or any KIA's? My 2016 Camry won't let me take my key out unless it's off and in P (park)!

I have all the mechanic's manuals, but the tensioning seems so inconveniently located as to require removal of other stuff just to accomplish what should be basic maintenance. Surely there's a simple way to do this.

My car vibrates very bad when i start it n runs poorly

Is this covered by warranty?

Got off highway started to hear knocking nois. Drove a few miles it got worse. Pulled over and called tow truck

Seems to spew worse when the tank is almost empty.

I do not know which type/brand of transmission fluid to buy for my 2006 Kia Sport age with an automatic transmission. Please answer asap. Thank you.

When I try to stop, usually from a speed over 25mph, the steering wheel vibrates back and forth from left to right, and it feels like the brake rotors are made out of a washboard! I am assuming it is time for me to go have brake service done.

ABS light, ESC light and brake light are all on. All come on as soon as you start vehicle. Electric mowing sound is coming from the engine by the power steering fluid thing, but once you apply brakes, it stops.

filled up with gas and the next morning when I started it, it leaked gas profusely by the back drivers side tire. I can't see a leak or bad hose. What else could it possibly be?

Never had any problems. Then all of a sudden it shuts off while driving. Turns over no start. Pop clutch to start motor Boggs down and quits.

During winter, on cold days, wanted to warmup car, lock it, come back after 15 minutes and open car door with spare key.
Or lock car while recharging dead battery. My model will not allow doors to be locked while car is idling.
How do I bypass this issue?

That's all I need to know is how many fuel injectors are there?

Whining noise gets louder the faster you go and comes from the torque converter driveplate area of the engine-tranny. Checked tranny fluid and filter is internal in this transmission. 115,000 miles on it.

The problem began with a beep beep sound coming through the speakers now no sound whatsoever. Now, there are some lights illuminated on the speedometer panel area such as traction control and two others.

It was being driven and stopped and sat for a couple months. When i changed the plugs all four were soaked. The spark plug socket was also soaked leading me to believe the oil coating the plugs may have done so during removal

I vhanged it 2 times and it stil btokr

was told it was the heasat shield over the catalytic converter that was contracting. was told this is common. I don't think so because I can hear it with the radio on and windows down. Never heard this from any car before and no one has ever heard of this

I was low on gas light came on start blinking and put gas in gas won't register and engine light came on.

Yesterday the headlights, windshield wipers, and power windows wouldn't turn on. Everything else works fine and all the fuses and relays are good what could be just affecting those components?

It just started doing this last night

A machanic that it's the wiring going to tranny.Where is this wire located.

In such case, when I press the switch on the steering wheel, I can hear the relay click in the fusebox. Does this mean the problem is the horn itself? Thanks to all.

RUFF ideal intake misfires

Rear axle moves sideways when driving into bumpy roads

Does not turn over, was working fine, running well, now nothing, just click sound when key turned to start. Click sound under dash maybe hard to say. manual trans, replaced clutch pedal switch, did nothing!

Will start fine but will not restart for several hours after it has been driven for awhile..(1 hour) what's wrong with it?
