  1. Looses all power especially at lower rpm

    Soul Problems (Gen 2)
    Just wondering if anybody has similar problems and if we know the cause. 2016 plus 2.0L. I think it MIGHT be heat soak related because when it's cold outside or if the car has had a chance to cool for a few hours it is fine but as soon as it gets hot after like 10-20 minutes normal driving it...
  2. Poly inserts in lower torque/anti-rotation mount

    How To / DIY (Gen 2)
    Incase anyone was wondering, the Veloster poly engine mount inserts fit in the Soul too. I had to sand down the outside perimeter of mine, to get them to fit, as they were a bit too wide(I think it was just poor quality control). This is the anti-torque mount that sits on the bottom of the...

    Soul Accessories (Gen 2)
    So I'm not a fan of running front plates, however I don't mind putting them off to the side. When I took off my front plate today it was screwed on with 6 + screws. 1) Does anyone know if from factory they do this or is it just the dealerships silliness. 2) I can't find an aftermarket place...

    Soul Problems (Gen 1)
    Hi I replaced the lower ball joints on a 2011 Kia soul. But when taking it for a drive I find that the passenger side wheel rocks. You can reproduce the effect when you grab the tire and rock it back and forth. (Rocking top to bottom, from passenger side towards driver side) As far as I can...

    Soul Problems (Gen 1)
    I just completed the lower ball joints on my 2011 Soul. That was a bitchy job! Took it for a test drive and everything seems fine except that the "Slippery Road" symbol and the ABS light are both on. So what did I do wrong? Where do I look? Can I drive it the way it is for now? Help!?!? DR

    Soul Problems (Gen 1)
    Is there an adjustment just for the high beams or is this a defect in the light housing? I have found the adjustment for the low beams and this seems to adjust both high and low beams. The bulbs are seated correctly, but the high beams point down infront of the low beams. Any help would be...
