  1. Power outlet

    Soul Accessories (Gen 2)
    I have a 2014 model. It has 2 of the power outlets in the dash along with the the USB port. The USB works fine but cannot get the power outlets to work. (cigarette lighter ports) I've replaced the fuses in the fuse console under the steering column as I was told to try and it did not fix this...
  2. recommended plug wires.

    Soul General Discussion (Gen 1)
    I am starting to give my little car some attention now that I have some free time. So far I installed a nav/tablet system, pads/rotors 2 calipers, front bearings and larger wheels/tires but now I am focusing on the motor. I have bought most of the parts but I was wondering what the best plug...
  3. Where's the radiator drain plug?

    How To / DIY (Gen 1)
    Finally figured out the correct coolant to use for my 2012+. Figured I'd do a drain and refill, so I got underneath the nose but can't find the drain plug anywhere. Found a diagram online but it's so sketchy it's of no use. Thanks! Incidentally, pet**** is the proper term, but apparently...
  4. Spark Plug Change, slight misfire.

    Soul General Discussion (Gen 2)
    My girlfriend says she gets a slight miss sometimes on her 2015 Soul Base. It has 62k miles on it and I keep it maintained. So far its just required front brake pads, just put 3rd set of tires on, and air filters. I googled and searched the forum, but I only got one thread that popped up...
  5. Oil drain plug

    Soul General Discussion (Gen 1)
    Most of you will consider this kinda dumb I guess but today I removed the oil drain plug on our 2010 Soul to change the oil. I had planned to replace the gasket as this one on this engine had not been replaced before. The washers I had got from Rock Auto are little crush washers. But when I...

  7. Oil Drain Plug

    How To / DIY (Gen 2)
    Hey I can’t remember where I read it, the manual or here, but is it necessary to change the Oil Drain Plug when changing the oil? Or is it just the crush washer? Seems excessive but wanna make sure I do things right.
  8. Drain Plug Orientation 2.0L

    Soul General Discussion (Gen 2)
    Hi all, Quick question. If I drive forward onto standard ramps for an oil change, is it better for training for the car to be tilting backward (ie., "nose up")? Not sure what is best given the 2.0's drain pan shape and plug placement. Thanks, - G.
  9. Spark Plug Seize Prevention

    Soul General Discussion (Gen 2)
    I recently stripped the head of my snowblower's engine removing a spark plug that had been in there for three years. No big deal. I popped in a helicoil and all was well. It did, however, get me thinking about my Soul's spark plugs. At 100,000 miles, I imagine those things could be seized in...

    How To / DIY (Gen 2)
    Just installed this radio and thought I'd do a quick write up on how to do the install along with a brief review. The radio isn't that old and you can get it for about $220.00 shipped on ebay right now. It can be found on page 3 of Pyle's 2017 catalog...

  12. Spark plug wires - 2010 1.6

    Soul General Discussion (Gen 1)
    Sup guys ... Can you hook a brother up and help me find where I can pick up a set of Spark Plug wires for a 2010 Soul 1.6? No one seems to have them. Pep Boys, Autozone, O'Reilly, Rock Auto, Amazon ... all shooting blanks. So, other than the dealer, can you recommend a set of spark plug...
  13. Removing crush washer from drain plug

    Soul General Discussion (Gen 2)
    I am doing my first oil change on my 2016 Soul. I removed the drain plug and the crush washer is stuck to it, but good. It's like it's almost fused to the metal of the drain plug or something. Is there a trick to getting those things off that I don't know about? Do you have to heat it or...
  14. 2016 Soul Oil Plug Gasket Size

    Soul Problems (Gen 2)
    Does anyone know the size of the 2016 Soul 2.0 engine oil plug gasket size? I can't believe what a well guarded secret this is. I have asked, looked, googled with no answer. I can find them for sale all over the Internet but no one mentions the size. The only seller that did mention said it...
  15. oil drain plug washer

    Soul General Discussion (Gen 2)
    I'm looking for a definitive answer on this if someone is willing to help. I've searched the forums here but have only got 'looks like' 'seems to be' and 'think it is' answers on the actual part number for the crush washer specifically for the second gen Kia Souls (2.0l). I bought an oil...
  16. First oil change.... why is the oil drain plug cranked so tight?

    Soul General Discussion (Gen 2)
    The Kia Soul 2015 went over 12,000 km a week or so ago. Drove it up on wooden ramps to change the oil and filter but had to abandon the project as I could not loosen the oil pan drain plug with a regular wrench and the limited space under the auto. Then I came here and read about the...
  17. OEM roof rack, plug and play?

    Soul Accessories (Gen 1)
    I've been eye balling the OEM roof rack (side rails) and was wondering if the install is a plug and play type of deal. I found a set on eBay that is fairly well priced and I am deciding between that or if it's too mix of a pain, going after market.

    Soul Problems (Gen 1)
    I have a 2011 Manual transmission. Ordered some redline tranny fluid to do a transmission fluid change. Just wondering if anybody had any clue what size the crush washers are on the fill/drain plugs
