  2. Check engine light on along with gas light on

    Soul Problems (Gen 2)
    My check engine light and gas light came on today after two weeks of replacing my gas cap as the dealer said that was the problem. So I messed with my gas cap today to try and get the engine light to turn off and it won’t go off. My gas light is now on also and the needle is on E. Today is...

  4. Winter vs. Summer Gas Mixes

    Soul General Discussion (Gen 2)
    had the car for a few months now, and fuel economy has steadily increased. just finished up my first tank of summer, clocking in at 9.76L/100km (24.1 mpg). decent, if a bit surprising, as there was a frustrating hour of backed-up/very slow moving traffic in there, and very little highway...

    Soul Problems (Gen 1)
    I have two issues with my 2010 Soul!. 1) I took it to the dealership for new plugs, wires, etc. because it was throwing the code for it. (I can't remember exact code but it had a 3 in it.) They ended up replacing the battery as well. Since this was done, my gas mileage has been 3-5 mpg less...
