  1. 2013 Soul 1.6 spark plugs @ 135k miles

    Soul General Discussion (Gen 1)
    Well, I finally got around to changing my spark plugs on my Soul. Yeah, I was 30k miles past the schedule but being that the car is out of warranty and was running fine, frankly I didn't care enough to drop everything and do it. But since I've had the plugs sitting on the work bench for 6 months...
  2. Spark plugs change

    Soul General Discussion (Gen 2)
    Changing my spark plugs today. Dealer recommended changing them at 164k km's. I currently have 92k on the car but I wanted to change them due to old habits. I'm glad I did. I could have gone another 10k-20k on the originals, but meh, I was bored.
  3. Turbo Spark Plugs

    Soul General Discussion (Gen 2)
    Hello, I recently discovered that spark plugs on a turbo do not necessarily last as long as on a regular injector. I also discovered that this has a lot to with how you drive it as well. Question: how many miles have the fellow turbo owners here driven their cars before replacing them? I ask...

  6. When to replace spark plugs? (2013 base 1.6L auto)

    Soul General Discussion (Gen 1)
    I'll be approaching 30k miles soon, and I've read on various forums to replace the cheap-o copper spark plugs that are used in the base 1.6L Soul. Not sure if that's true or not, I searched the manual online and couldn't find anything regarding spark plugs, only to replace them more frequently...
  7. Spark plugs

    Soul General Discussion (Gen 1)
    What kind of spark plugs are most of the Soul owners buying? Are you getting the Iridium Spark Plug? Can the Soul 2.0 run on the coppers or must they use the Iridium Plug or equivalent? I searched here and cannot get a definite answer either way.:confused:
  8. Continuous Power to Cigarette Plugs

    Soul Problems (Gen 1)
    How can I get continuous power to my front power plugs for when my key is out of the ignition? Can I change the fuse or does it involve extensive wiring? Just want to be able to charge my cell phone when my car is off.
  9. Check engine light spark plugs?

    Soul Problems (Gen 1)
    2011+ check engine light is on, I'm assuming spark plugs as its due. If I replace plugs and wires, will the light go off if that was indeed the problem?

  12. Can we talk Spark Plugs for a minute?

    How To / DIY (Gen 1)
    I'm just coming up on 9000 miles and my third oil change and all's well with my little Gertrude. However, I'm always looking for that "Razors' Edge" when it comes to performance. I've been reading a lot of testimonials from people who have put the E3 spark plug in their cars, motor cycles...

  14. Where are the spark plugs?

    Soul Problems (Gen 1)
    OK, a stupid question. My father (who is 85 years old, sharper than I am, and worked on automotive and aviation engines long before most of us in the forum were born) and I were looking at my Soul's 1.6L four and could not (for the life of us) determine where the ignition wires were located...
