  1. Soul Problems (Gen 2)
    Hello, I would like to know if the Gear Assembly-Steering Gen 1 (oem part number 565002K001) can be used in my Soul 2015 gen 2? If so, what modifications are necessary? For comparision this is the Gen 2 part (oem part number 56500E4000) And this is the Gen 1 part (oem part number 565002K001)...
  2. Soul Problems (Gen 2)
    Noticed that when on interstate straight stretches with virtually no input to steering wheel, that when I do move it slightly, there is just the slightest perception of resistance/drag. I never noticed it on secondary roads where the steering is in more constant movement. Expect if I take it...

    Is is possible to program the gear indicator to show the gear the transmission is in rather than when to shift up?
  4. Soul Problems (Gen 2)
    13,500 miles mint condition. Just picked it up from a local dealer on Saturday. After driving it for 2 days l am having trouble finding first gear at stop lights. I have many years driving manual trans vehicles in my younger days.Maybe l should give it a little more time for me to get used to...

    I have a 2016 base model, more and more after a cold start (in the morning), my car acts like its going to die when put into 2nd gear & given throttle. This is not the same as the 2nd gear lag which our lovely cars have. Has anyone else experienced this? the KIA dealerships here in San Diego...

    Hi, I drive the 2015 manual. I have noticed that if I am doing about 35mph and feel like I can shift to 6th gear, when I do I hear whining sound from the transmission while maintaining speed. I hear it at that speed the easiest because the road noise is not to great to cover it. Does anyone of...

    I'm driving my 2nd Soul. First was a 13 and now its a 16. My wife's car is an 08 and in the instrument panel it always shows which gear the autotranny is in. As much as I like most features of the Soul I've really let this one feature, or lack thereof, bug me. Is there a way or a mod from Kia...
  8. Soul Problems (Gen 1)
    Posting this question about my aunt's 2010 Kia Soul with the manual transmission. When shifting into 1st gear, even without pressing the accelerator, the engine revs VERY high. When it is at idle, the RPM is normal. Also, shifting into reverse does not appear to cause the high rev. Any ideas...

    My 2012 Soul (Auto) has got stuck in gear a few times. It tends to happen in 3rd or 4th (that I've noticed so far). I'll be driving along accelerating normally on a flat road, the RPM's continue to climb and climb before I know it I'll be at 4,000 RPM then I'll manually force the car into 5th...
  10. Soul Problems (Gen 1)
    So when attempting to back out of my driveway this morning, the manual shifter in my 2010 kia soul was stuck. I cannot move it at all from the position it is in, which is all of the way left. The clutch feels fine, but the shifter will not budge and the car is not able to move when given gas. If...

    My driveway is steep enough to engage the hill assist and I just wanted to test if the engine was able to hold the car without the e-brake. It started creaking a bit and gradually rolling a little at a time downhill. I've read online that 1st gear should generally be strong enough to hold a car...
  12. Soul Problems (Gen 2)
    I have a new 2016 kia soul manual transmission. I noticed after it warms up it will hesitate after shifting into second. Its like a delay before it accelerates. I can get aroud this by reving the RPMs up higher before shifting or hitting the gas a second before letting out the clutch. Very...
  13. Soul Problems (Gen 2)
    I started having trouble with my 2015 kia soul base, when the starter got stuck and had to be rock started- unfixed because it couldnt be duplicated but no one would look to see if fly wheel was damaged. 3 weeks later clutch blew 1000.00 out of pocket I got car back two weeks later. Test...

    I was reading on the forum that if you unplug the plug to the right of the clutch it will stop the assist that drops the rpms. I was reading farther into the thread and I noticed someone saying that if you unplugged the plug you couldn't have cruise control and I was really wanting cruise. Is...

    I finally got around to swapping the oil in my manual transaxle with Red Line MT-85 75W-85 synthetic. The main reason was to hopefully reduce the stiffness on extremely cold winter days, so obviously we'll have to wait to see how that works out. But here are some initial impressions other than...
  17. Soul Problems (Gen 1)
    Just got a 2014 Kia Soul. Love the car so far... Does anyone have this issue with the Satellite Radio Presets: Sometimes, not all the time, when try to toggle Presets with the up/down steering wheel buttons it will not go to the next one up or down. In other words if its on 6 and I press up, it...
  18. Soul Problems (Gen 1)
    I've had my car about 5 weeks and this hesitation is driving me nuts. It's a 2014 Soul manual transmission that I bought from a dealership basically new, it had 300 miles on it. I have been driving a stick for 40 years so I'm pretty sure it's not me. Shifting into 2nd gear it looses power for a...

    Hey, quick background. I've got a 2013 Soul Base Manuel I parked on the street the other night and the plow came through and put about a foot of snow up against my car (maybe 6 inches in the front and back). My husband told me to try and back it out, then go forward and drive through the small...
  20. Soul Problems (Gen 1)
    We've had our Manual Soul for a week now and my partner has complained about a problem selecting first gear. I've not driven the Soul much but it did the same thing to me, it takes 3 attempts to get it in to first, each timing releasing the clutch and then pressing it back in again. It's...
