  4. 2014 Kia Soul Base Model - Rough Idle, Intermittent Hard Start

    Soul Problems (Gen 2)
    I had some hard-starting issues with my 2014 Soul 1.6l with 60,000 miles. I replaced the battery and, because the hard starting only seemed to happen when the car was warm, I also replaced the coolant temperature sensor. This seemed to do the trick at first, but the hard-start problem has...
  5. Re soul purported rough ride

    Soul General Discussion (Gen 2)
    There have been a number of threads here complaining of the rough ride in the soul, and I have replied that while the ride is not luxo barge smooth it is not unreasonably rough. Well yesterday I had occasion to ride in my friend's 2016 Honda Civic touring the top model in the range, now that...

    Soul Problems (Gen 2)
    Hello - I have a 2016 1.6L Soul. Currently 6,600 miles. Ever since I bought it new - Dec 2016, I noticed odd RPM idle fluctuation issues under various conditions. Basically, the idle dips similar to what I equate when you turn on the AC in most cars. However, my RPM dips when I roll any...

  8. 2014 Camshaft Sensor Question - Rough Idle

    Soul Problems (Gen 2)
    Our 2014 Kia Soul recently got a very bad idle issue after returning from a long trip. I did a bit of reading and replaced the Purge Valve and one of the crank sensors that was getting a bit of a low volt reading. Neither of these helped the issue so I purchased a camshaft sensor online. I am...
  9. Rough Idle Revisited ("all carboned up")

    Soul Problems (Gen 1)
    I posted a few weeks back about my rough idle http://www.kiasoulforums.com/10-soul-problems/79018-am-i-just-asking-trouble.html and asked about the logic of taking it to the dealer with only a "rough idle" complaint. I decided not to take it in, the rough idle smoothed out and I figured it was...
  10. Clutch pedal feels a little rough?

    Soul General Discussion (Gen 2)
    I don't know if it's all in my head, but I've noticed in the past couple days that the pedal seems to feel a bit more rough or "textured" than it used to. Not always, but often in lower gear/speeds. Maybe I'm crazy, maybe I've been shifting differently (moving the pedal more slowly) recently so...
