  1. 2016 Soul: Does it have a tranny filter?

    Soul General Discussion (Gen 2)
    Why wouldn’t it have a transmission filter? All the parts stores carry one... When I called a KIA service center though, the tech and even a manager said the Souls do NOT have a filter! Two different people at a KIA dealer! What!!? I know it’s an often-overlooked maintenance item, but it’s...

  6. Good reason to check your air filter! LOL

    Soul General Discussion (Gen 2)
    So I'm preparing to drive 1/2 across the country for Christmas and giving the Kia a once over and even though I've only got <9,000 miles on it, I checked the engine and cabin air filters. (FYI, the cabin was dirrrrty already). The engine filter wasn't bad, but I replaced it anyways, just cause...

  12. Thinking about doing air filter changes twice a year

    Soul General Discussion (Gen 2)
    I usually do cabin and engine air filter changes in October. But they were both exceptionally dirty, so I changed them today, after 10 months and 12,200 miles. I already discarded the engine air filter and sealed the bag, but here's the cabin air filter. I think I'll start changing both...
  13. Oil & Filter = Oil Leak

    Soul General Discussion (Gen 2)
    So I went to the local Mazda--because the local KIA and Hyundai seem goofy--emporium for my early O&F. I took the KIA (Hyundai part, actually) oil filter in, pointed out the "replace crush washer" etc. They used Castrol GTX 5W-20 semi syn. I checked the receipt when I got home. 5 quarts. Oh...
  14. 2017 air filter

    Aftermarket modifications (Gen 2)
    I was looking to replace my 2017 + intake filter with an AEM (just a drop-in) but both AEM and K&N only offer them for the 2016 and older models. The pictures of the paper filters for 2017 look identical to the ones used in 2016, so I'm wondering if anyone knows if they're the same size? I'm...
  15. Four year replacement of the cabin filter

    Soul General Discussion (Gen 1)
    It's been four years since I replaced my cabin filter. Took it out and honestly wasn't shocked at how dirty it was. Here's a closeup of the build up of dirt in the grooves. It's only eight screws. Pull out the glove box. Flip a lever and it comes out. Very easy to do yourself. The...
  16. Kia dealerships allowed to use any kind of oil filter they want?

    Soul General Discussion (Gen 1)
    I changed the oil on both Souls tonight. I did the oil change on the 2013 last time, but I had the Kia dealer do the oil change on the 2012. They didn't put the oil dipstick back in all the way, and by the time I caught it there was a nice greasy, oily mess under the hood. So I decided for the...

    Soul Tire & Wheel (Gen 2)
    The forecast was for three to five inches of snow this coming Saturday, so I decided to install my winter tires. (While I was doing so, they changed the forecast to mainly rain, but I've come to expect that sort of thing.) The tires are Hankook Winter i-Pike WS419's, studded (like their...
  19. $10 for a Kia Soul oil filter? Where are you guys buying your filters?

    Soul General Discussion (Gen 1)
    OK, the title was meant to grab you. It worked, because you're here :) I went by my local Kia place yesterday to buy a new batch of oil filters and metal plug gaskets. I usually get 4-6 at a time, so it takes a year or so (I have 2 Souls) to go through all of them, and it's been about a year...
