  1. Stuck in lower gear ratio

    Soul Problems (Gen 3)
    I think when they're talking about break-in period they simply don't want you hot rodding your car too soon and want you to keep the rpm's in a respectable range and not over 4000 if possible sounds totally normal to me~~~ALIEN
  2. Drivetrain vibration at highway speed

    Soul Problems (Gen 3)
    Check all your calipers also one could be sticking jack each point up and spin tire~~~ALIEN
  3. Ac turns on when kicking center console

    Soul Problems (Gen 1)
    WOW 220 K miles!! and you do things like kick the center console, sounds like its been a great car sounds like there is probably a short in your heater control and all the force exerted on the center console gear shift area when you kick it is making the switch think you are turning it on~~~ALIEN
  4. No codes after stalling out 2015 Soul

    Soul Problems (Gen 1)
    I can't really give you any more ideas because I don't know your engine or transmission type you really need to fill out the about me section of your acct. so we all know a little about your car cause if its an automatic transmission it may be a transmission switch that is making it stall could...
  5. No codes after stalling out 2015 Soul

    Soul Problems (Gen 1)
    Fuel filter or fuel pump would be my guess put a fuel filter on and see if it fixes it cause that's not gonna be covered on warranty anyways it is maintenance part and i don't think either of those will set a code if they fail possibly throttle body may need to be cleaned also
  6. Engine light

    Soul Problems (Gen 1)
    I would try spraying the throttle plate with a suitable cleaner they carbon up and will often stick especially when cold there are some videos on youtube that show the procedure for cleaning the plate~~~ALIEN

  8. Poor Gas Milage

    Soul Problems (Gen 1)
    23 to 26 sounds about right depending upon driving conditions I get 30s on highway 23/26 in town and i am in a mountainous terrain and do not lead foot if you question your numbers check for a stuck caliper first
  9. Another burning oil thread

    Soul Problems (Gen 2)
    Maybe bump it up to 5W-40 oil but if you ever have to take it on for an oil check be sure to go back to 5W-30 just in case

  11. 2013 Dash went out momentarily, dealer refusing to honor warranty

    Soul Problems (Gen 1)
    Sounds like the mechanic pulled a quick wire disconnect or a fuse in an attempt to avoid warranty fix, maybe signup at carfax I think they have a site where you can see what was done to your vehicle and you can see your shop records and miles records may even have current miles on it...

    Now as I see a better view of the rocker area I see they do appear to be covers though not nearly as extravagant as those on my previous car that had 3 inch high rocker covers that were poorly designed hopefully these ones will be easier to maintain and keep clean behind

    I actually think it's quite sharp and honestly can say I will be buying one if it still has the 1.6 litre engine available I am fond of the rockers being exposed again and the pinch weld being exposed as they were in the 1st gen the second gen covered both these items with a plastic ground...

    Soul General Discussion (Gen 2)
    It's pretty unfortunate when the customer of these great little cars has to do their own investigative work to make heads or tails of a potentially serious incident NO matter how many or few fires there are
