    Does anyone know what the automatic transmission oil pan bolt(not the drain bolt) torque specs are?

    Finally figured out the correct coolant to use for my 2012+. Figured I'd do a drain and refill, so I got underneath the nose but can't find the drain plug anywhere. Found a diagram online but it's so sketchy it's of no use. Thanks! Incidentally, pet**** is the proper term, but apparently...
  3. Soul Problems (Gen 2)
    Greetings, In the fall, I noticed some steam/vapor emanating from the vents in front of the windshield of my 2015 Kia Soul + (only 21K miles) and had no clue why that was occurring. As we got into the rainy season in the SF Bay Area, I noticed that the windshield was fogging up excessively and...

    My Granddaughter's 2011 Soul has wet floors. There are no obvious leaks around the sunroof. The sunroof functions normally,.. it powers open and closed okay. The floors are wet. Not damp,... wet. All the way through the carpet. Not actually standing water, but close to it. The car has not...

    Most of you will consider this kinda dumb I guess but today I removed the oil drain plug on our 2010 Soul to change the oil. I had planned to replace the gasket as this one on this engine had not been replaced before. The washers I had got from Rock Auto are little crush washers. But when I...

    Album: https://imgur.com/a/XI2gMOs You're welcome! Dealer wanted 200+ to do it, I did it myself over the course of an hour and a half for $50ish. Be sure to check out that drain bolt.. there's no way I'd let this car go on the same fluid for it's "lifetime", whatever "lifetime" means. Car had...

    Hey I can’t remember where I read it, the manual or here, but is it necessary to change the Oil Drain Plug when changing the oil? Or is it just the crush washer? Seems excessive but wanna make sure I do things right.

    Hi all, Quick question. If I drive forward onto standard ramps for an oil change, is it better for training for the car to be tilting backward (ie., "nose up")? Not sure what is best given the 2.0's drain pan shape and plug placement. Thanks, - G.

    Purchased last Thursday, same day before test driving the car, battery was dead. Salesman chalked it up to it being close to 0 degrees and in the -5 to -10 range overnight. Sooo he jumped the battery, and finalized the purchase, drove it home. Battery stone-cold dead the next morning. Nothing...

    I am doing my first oil change on my 2016 Soul. I removed the drain plug and the crush washer is stuck to it, but good. It's like it's almost fused to the metal of the drain plug or something. Is there a trick to getting those things off that I don't know about? Do you have to heat it or...

    I'm looking for a definitive answer on this if someone is willing to help. I've searched the forums here but have only got 'looks like' 'seems to be' and 'think it is' answers on the actual part number for the crush washer specifically for the second gen Kia Souls (2.0l). I bought an oil...

    The Kia Soul 2015 went over 12,000 km a week or so ago. Drove it up on wooden ramps to change the oil and filter but had to abandon the project as I could not loosen the oil pan drain plug with a regular wrench and the limited space under the auto. Then I came here and read about the...

    Are there any preferred methods to check if an AC drain line in a Soul is clogged? Just watching for a drip doesn't really indicate anything definitive unless the line is clogged shut entirely. I tried pushing a smaller flex pipe into the drain line but of course cannot be sure if it actually...

    I have a dual channel dash camera installed in my 2008 Rondo that has a constant on power port in the cargo area. When I was about to install the same dual channel camera on my 2015 Soul, I found none of the power port is constant on which is essential for parking mode recording. On the other...

    My job is located in the middle of nowhere, and it's extremely peaceful to sit in my car with all my windows down, listen to my music, and enjoy the scenery. With that said, how much battery juice does accessory mode drain? I never sit in my car with the key turned to the second mode (where...

    My Soul has 37K miles on it. I have always had it serviced at the dealer. I have the time to do it myself now Bought the oil and filter, opened the hood and loosened the drain plug. It was coming out with finger pressure and then it got hard to turn. Put the socket back on and it turned with a...

    I put my soul on car ramps to look at the tranny and could not find the drain and filler bolts. Can someone help????

    Hey guys so I need your confirmation on making sure that this is the A/C drain tube under the Soul. I found on Amazon the TSB Kia OEM A/C Deodorizer/Cleaner kit for cheap by Kia. I plan on doing it myself and saving $130 because the dealer is asking for way TOO much! First Pic is the end of...
