I like that it is easy to book, that I have a great Groupon, and that the staff is friendly, but every time I take my car there it does like crazy after I leave for a long time. Up to a month. I'm sure it's just spilled oil but it is smelly, embarrassing, I can't close the garage door until it airs out etc.

Steve is knowledgeable, personable, and trustworthy. He explains things in a way that can work for both experts and "dummies". After meeting me only once, he was referring to me by first name as I walked in the door.

I did not think they did a very good job and they cost a lot of money. They were able to fix the problem but when I asked if there were other problems they said no. There were other problems. I felt they just wanted to get rid of me.

Everything that needed to be done was done, at the quoted price, and delivered at the stated time. There was no, "We noticed this or that." No unexplained additions to the original quote.

I have already recommended Trinity's to others. I trust them to perform my car servicing correctly the first time, and without taking advantage of me.

They are fair. I should use the word honest.

My water pump froze on my way from Eugene to Portland - just before the Commercial Street exit south of Salem. How I ended up at Trinity is a long story, but mostly luck and a good strategy. Also, they were willing to fit me in at the end of their day. They answered all of my questions and cooperated with me in brainstorming a solution that I could live with and afford. I had great results, I trust them, and I would gladly be towed there yet again!

First off, they are very friendly at the beginning. They seem to really care. They could not find a problem at first but kept looking until they did. They did not charge us extra.

Sounds like you need to verify you cam shaft timing. Possibly might be off a tooth or two. As to #2 cylinder i would run a compression test and verify all cylinders and compare readings. Or you can take it to your local repair shop and they can diagnose it for you quickly and accurately. Good luck.

Use the repair pal estimator to help yourself with that question. The way you're explaining things doesn't sound like you're using a professional shop. These engines do take alot of time though.

Was it ever checked out for the dieing problem? If so what was the diagnosis and repairs to address the issue. If nothing was done, I don't think Kia is going to help you much.

Print a wiring diagram and check your power distribution. Possibly with a water leak from the sunroof could have some electrical issues stemming from that. KOEO - check all fuses to see if you have a section of fuses that arent powering up and trace back from there.

You should stop driving immediately and have the vehicle inspected. If its as severe as you say it is, it could be causing damage to the vehicle or worse may cause a wreck. I'm not trying to use any type of scare tactic but attempt to covey the level of importance of getting the vehicle inspected.
The good news is that a lot of shops offer a free courtesy inspection. We'll left the vehicle in the air and have a certified tech look it over. If nothing is seen at that point then it may get into a diagnostic charge. But if it's making as much noise as you say it is , hopfully it should be something obvious.
Just contact a shop that you trust and they'll be able to help you out. Good Luck

The "W" body had numerous issues with the ignition switch with thermal failures. 1 of the biggest problems was not being able to get key out of ignition or not being able to pull it out of park.
Get your wiring diagram and trace out which ckt it actually is or just replace the ignition switch.

P0401 - is egr insufficient flow. Is is hardly ever an issue with anything but plugged ports when addressing this code. Depending on whether it's a 4 cyl or 6cyl will dictate how you service and clean out the ports.

Any certified shop can help you take care of that issue.
Good luck.
Measure the resistance of the black pellet located in the key. You then can find a resistor from Radio Shack and install it at the base of the colum. This should allow u to start it. If your car has a chip inside the key handle then this will be harder to bypass.
