  1. Soul Problems (Gen 1)
    I'm having the transmission oil changed in my 2010 Kia Soul in the hopes that its low, and that's what's causing it to slip out in 3rd & 4th when accelerated quickly. Every Transmission Mechanic I talk to acts like it's definitely a much bigger job. Anyone have this problem?? And what was the...

  4. Soul Problems (Gen 1)
    Well, Back in November, I had my Sway bar links, Passenger side Control arm and ball joint, and all the pads and rotors done on my car. The Brakes have had to be REDID, and now the Control Arm and Ball joint had to be redone as well. Lesson Learned, NEVER let a used car lot do the work on...

    This alternator is just really down in there. I've done a lot of car work just following videos and guides and such. But now sure how to tackle this as I can't find ant information on this exact setup at all! Here just a few pics. If anyone got or knows best step by step I would love you!

    So the car has 170k on her now. Just relocated down south to Georgia from New England and now have a company car so no longer drive the car really. I tend to drive her once every week worst case every 2 weeks shorts trips here and there on the weekends. After about a month or so of the above she...
  7. Soul Problems (Gen 1)
    I am having a tough time getting my soul started, at first it would start after 2 or 3 tries and now its after 20 tries. It's not the battery and it makes the starting sound but no engine sounds, and sometimes giving it a little gas while cranking it will make it start but not always. I...

    Hi I have a Kia Soul 1.6 - 2010 model. My problem I am experiencing is that when I am driving my vehicle it seems to loose power and sometimes when I slow down and change down to lower gear my car will cut out / stall. Does anyone know what the problem may be? I took it into Kia and they said I...

    Hi all...my first post so forgive me if I do this wrong lol. 2010 Kia w/112,000 miles. Blower works intermittent - dealer said it has a short. Is this hard to track and repair? Also, passenger power window won't roll down. Dealer states this is a switch. Just wondering if this will be...
  11. Soul Tire & Wheel (Gen 2)
    I know, another spare tire question. Sorry . Trading 2010 (18" wheels) for 2019 (17") wheels. Keeping donut kit from the 2010. There are different kitts for Gen 1 vs Gen 2. Does anyone know what the difference would be? According to manuals tier size ((125/80D-16) and wheel size (4.0T x 10) are...
  12. Soul Problems (Gen 1)
    I am working on my sisters 2010 Kia Soul. It has gone through 3 clutches in about a year and a half. The go out faster each time. The slave cylinder appears to be working, but I rarely work on manuals (I was not the one to install the clutches) so you have any thoughts with the slave cylinder I...

    Hi have a Kia Soul
  14. ICE & Communication (Gen 1)
    I started probing wires under the dash and I got lucky and found the reverse light wire in a plug on the far left side under the dash. It's a green wire in a plug containing many green wires. I will attach a photo for reference. It's the second wire from the left on top. I pulled it out a...

    Is one side a better choice than the other for routing cables? Driver's side seems like a good choice because the battery is on that side, but I'm wondering if one side of the floor channel is a better choice than the other (e.g., more space). Anyone familiar with these vehicles have an...

  17. Soul Problems (Gen 1)
    This evening, I replaced the trans filter with an OE filter, cleaned the magnets and put a bead of RTV silicone around the pan and refilled using KIA SPIII. After replacing the fluid and buttoning everything together, I started the car and put my foot on the brake and shifted through the gears...

    My Kia is Alien Green, and I loved it so much until now. I´ll post my problems with it in another section.
  20. Soul Problems (Gen 1)
    I just pulled the bad starter from my 2010 Soul+ 2.0l 5M, and the replacement I got from Rock Auto was a little longer at both ends than the one that came out. I checked the specs on the website, and the part number was correct for my manual trans, so I figured maybe it was a manufacturer...
