  1. Soul Problems (Gen 1)
    At almost 270,000 miles, the front end started getting loud. I jacked it up and the only issue I could detect was a lot of slop in the inner right CV Joint. So I replaced both front axels. I couldn't detect any play and the rotors turned smooth with the axles out. But the noise didn't go...

    Hi All, I'm trying to switch my stock 18" rims to 16" aftermarket ones, and the aftermarket rims require a thin-wall socket, but the only thin-wall sockets I have are short. So I'd like to switch my lug nuts -- from the short OEM kind (on the left) to these longer ones (right)...

    The following is taken from the Manual (page 4-88). Is that setting only available for "Cluster B" Kia Souls? The clusters are shown on 4-50 of the manual. Here's the manual (the manual is a bit large)...

    I have a 2016 + model with the Audio Package but I'm considering going with an aftermarket Android stereo. Does anyone have any experience with a similar swap? While I like the UVO system, I wish it could do more and going with an android system will allow me to do more of my work related...

    If I buy/lease a ! without the tech package, and I want to install a power passenger seat as comes with the tech package, is that a plug-n-play or a major engineering event? Anyone done that? Thaxx.

    I'm pretty sure this is the same for all gen1 souls. You have to take out two phillips head screws to get each rotor off the car. Make sure you pound the hell out of them first to break up the rust or you will strip them. Can't really spray any lube because they are in there really tight. I...

    Hey guys. This last week a deer decided it was time to run in front of my soul and, well, she succeeded. I clipped the tail end of her going about 55 put here during hunting season in michigan. She got up and took off, no blood. I was few min. from home so I drove into my garage. On the drivers...

    Hi, I have searched the web for the details on dealing with the engine sheath below the engine so as to change the oil myself. I have found nothing. I always change my own oil. What is the trick as I am afraid that the oil will not drip out catching the sheath and creating a real mess. Also, do...
  9. Soul Problems (Gen 1)
    So I seem to have an unusual problem with my built in navigation/audio system. Everytime I start the car from a cold start, it starts playing Sirius like normal (as that's my default input) but after about 10 seconds it automatically switches to AM radio with no input from me. If I swtich it...

    Has anyone priced out oil lately? $4 a quart for the el cheapo stuff, almost $6 for decent oil. Toss a filter into the mix and you're up to about $25 with taxes. With coupons an oil change at my Kia dealer is about $25, without coupons about $32 or so. I like changing my own oil, but it's just...

    I have a 2014 Red zone with Navi. After I start my car and back out of the drive way after the backup cam goes off and the radio comes on the screen. the radio will automatically change from a sirrus channel to Am channel. I assume this isn't normal since it just started doing this. Any...

    Hi, I'm thinking of changing out the factory stereo with a touchscreen stereo that can also play movies possibly on my 2011. I'm needing some help on deciding if I should and if I do, which one is best? I was looking on Amazon so if you happen to know of one it would be great. Thank you!

    I know that when you sell the car, the warranty drops from 100k to 60k. However, I read somewhere on another forum that if you sell / gift the car to a family member, the 100k miles warranty stays. Can anyone confirm?
