    <p class="p1">A clean engine is a more efficient engine (and also a more powerful one), so a fuel injector cleaning is an important part of maintaining your car. While you can always visit a mechanic to get this service done, this is actually one of a few maintenance items that are pretty...

    Hi everyone, thanks to Drunken.Swagger for id'ing the mystery part for me. I am having a hard time finding a place to get one, I would greatly appreciate any leads. Thank you! Rom

    Over the past few weeks I've noticed that when I put gas in her (no matter how much I've experimented with diff amounts) she has issues starting and run sluggish for a bit and die if I don't ride the clutch and keep the rpms higher. So I decided to leave it running while refueling and it will...

    Wawa has built many new super stores all around my local area. They offer non Ethonal 89 octane fuel for about .50 cents more per gallon than the 87 octane E10 moonshine blend. So today l ran my 2015 1.6 base M6 Soul down to fumes and filled up with the 100% gasoline. I will do the math at the...

    Got a 2010 Soul 2U with 202,000km on it. Car is in good shape, and is well-maintained - regular oil changes, plugs were done about a year ago with NGK Iridiums, fuel injector/system cleaner is used 3-4 times per year, lots of high-ish speed highway driving, no CEL's on, always use good-quality...

    So, I asked for a bottle of the Kia Fuel Additive at my local Canadian dealership to see what they would give me. They gave me a bottle of Well-Worth Octi-Plus...

    Hey guys. The check engine light is on in my 2014 Soul EX. Pulling code P0461 -- Fuel Level Sensor. As far as I can tell, the actual gas gauge is working fine (i.e., it's reading full when I fill up, and slowly drops to empty as I drive throughout the week). It's done this before (same code)...

    Hi all, I drive a 2017 and I seem to be going threw so much gas very quickly. I was wondering if it was normal. This is my first Kia. It just seems to go threw a lot. Yesterday morning I started with 139 miles in my gas tank. I drove 57 miles for the entire day and ended up with 47 miles in my...

    I have 25 000km (15 000m) on my Soul SX 2015 and i didn't see a difference when is ON or OFF!? I know when is on the transmission shift faster in acceleration but it looks like the engine is choked! With the square front of the Soul not sure it works as well as a more aerodinamic car (Rio...

    Is it possible for one to do the 3 stage fuel service themselves? Dealership service keeps nagging me after oil changes about getting this done, but I don't feel like shelling out close to $200 for something I could do myself if it's not too involved. I'm not extremely handy with cars. I can...

    Hi, is there no replacement fuel door on market like Exos clear fuel door or so for the New Soul 2014+ ?????

    How do you check the fuel tank air filter on 2013 soul? What is the * mean on the chart? How do you check the fuel filter? The repair manual describes how to replace both but exactly how do they "check" the fuel tank air filter at the 30000 mile inspection other than to see no external leaks or...

    Hi all I've been reading the owners manual and I see if you don't have access to Techron Gas, you can buy techron additive from parts stores or Walmart etc. Do any of you find you need to add this to help the engine keep clean and run better? Thanks.

    Hi, I just purchased a (new) used 2013 Soul three days ago. Went to put in gas yesterday and the needle on the fuel tank did not respond. Then, today the needle started moving very slowly from the bottom to the top. Has anyone had this problem? Solution? Thanks!

    I am rather curious about the which factors are used by the gauge to provide the average MPG reading. Al, A.S.E. Master Auto Tech/L1

    As I understand it, both the 1.6L and the 2.0L engines are GDI direct injection now, meaning they are prone to getting gunked up. From what I understand, using a top tier fuel (Costco in my case) and regular fuel injector cleaner can return just as good if not better results than chevron gas for...

    I need to know if the dealer tried to rip me off. I brought my 2014 Soul in for the Airbag ECU recall and I was told that I also need a fuel vent filter and a throttle body service. I have had my fair share of cars and never had been told I need these two types of service. The Soul has about 26K...
