    Aftermarket modifications (Gen 2)
    OK, I have searched to the ends of google for a cold air intake for my 2018 Soul Turbo. There seems to be nobody manufacturing for the Turbos yet. I did see that sxthelement has one but it does not seem to be CARB legal and is never in stock. I have heard where others used Veloster or Forte...

    Soul Problems (Gen 2)
    Hey there, first post on this forum. I have a 2014 Soul +, 2.0 engine, with about 70K logged. I'm experiencing intermittent cold starts, where the engine has a miss issue.

  7. Reducing Cold Start wear

    Soul Problems (Gen 1)
    I read several thread about engine wear on cold starts, so I thought i would share some experience that many may find valuable. In my youth I tuned engines for racing, and discovered the interesting properties of molybdenum disulphide additive in protecting engine bores and bearings. The...

    Hi, I'm Al. I picked up a sweet deal on my wheels. So far, I love my 2015 Exclaim. The ONLY gripe is the time it takes to warm up.

    Soul General Discussion (Gen 1)
    I have this 2013 Soul !. The weather here is St. Louis has been rather mild (40's). I have been jumping in it in the morning and just taking off. It seems to get warm pretty quick. This morning I woke up to about an inch of snow, so I thought I'd warm the car up to melt it of the glass...
  10. 1.6l Base Cold Air Honolulu style

    Aftermarket modifications (Gen 2)
    Installed the Injen Cold Air this weekend and as Honolulu reported it mounted up perfectly. The resonator for the stock airbox is a little tricky to get out without removing the bumper but with the right approach it can definitely be done. I just removed the plastic rock shield from under the...

    Soul Problems (Gen 2)
    My Soul had an oil change Wednesday. AC has been working fine. Stopped at home this afternoon for about an hour and when I left, the AC suddenly wasn't blowing cold. It blows just not cold or even cool. Doesn't feel like it is blowing as hard as it should but not 100% sure about that. It is at...

  14. FINALLY! Aftermarket Cold Air Intake CAI For 2nd Gen Base 1.6L

    Aftermarket modifications (Gen 2)
    Like many of you fellow 2nd gen Base 1.6L owners out there, I'd been thru an exhaustive search for a CAI application for our cars. Lots of applications for the 2.0L, a few for the 1st gen Base 1.6L, but none specifically designed to fit the 2nd gen 1.6L, and none that I knew of that could be...
  15. Update to DIY Cold Air/SR Intake #NotYourGrandmasSoul

    How To / DIY (Gen 2)
    Previously I had talked about the DIY short ram intake and how simple it was. Well, after some time of looking over things and using a part or two from the factory air box/ assembly, I think we're on the right track. In order to do this you'll need to remove the entire factory air intake and air...
  16. For what it's worth Cold Air/Short Ram DIY

    Aftermarket modifications (Gen 2)
    I'm sure this has already been covered in some way so apologies in advance. Some CAI or short ram intakes can be pricey sometimes. I found I saved a good bit of money by doing it myself. If you're wanting to do it yourself, it's pretty simple and takes about an hour, maybe less. Your local auto...
  17. 2.0 Cold air for 1.6

    Aftermarket modifications (Gen 2)
    Sorry if this has been covered. Looking to add cold air to my 1.6l. Not expecting for serious gains, just love the look under the hood. Anyways, can't find one anywhere. The 2.0l throttle body and engine bay setup looks identical. Does anyone know if the 2.0 cold air setups will work on the 1.6l?

    Soul Problems (Gen 2)
    I've been noticing recently that on cold starts in the morning (it's rainy and cold here in Seattle right now), my '16 base soul with 6-speed manual transmission shudders quite a bit for the first 4 or 5 attempts to accelerate from a stop in 1st gear. It doesn't do it after that, even if the...
  19. 2010 Soul Won't Start When Cold

    Soul Problems (Gen 1)
    My husband has a 2010 Soul. It won't start when it's cold outside. We replaced the battery January 1, 2015. If it's warm outside or if the car has been recently driven and the engine is still warm, it starts fine. Right now, it's very cold outside and the car will only start when jumped by our...
