  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. 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...
  4. 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...
  5. 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...

  8. 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...
  9. 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...
  10. 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:

    Soul General Discussion (Gen 1)
    Hey all, I did a search, and couldn't find anything. When I looked elsewhere online, results were varied. I've found anywhere from .032 to .045 - which seems like quite a bit! What is the definitive answer to the spark plug gap on a 1.6L soul (2011)? thanks :encouragement:
  12. 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?

    How To / DIY (Gen 1)
    ok - i figured the forum would be the best place to ask this... bc the Rocket Scientists at a handful of dealers seem dumbfounded, maybe just DUMB.

  15. RPMS registered but no spark

    Soul Problems (Gen 1)
    I rear ended some one in November. Relative Minimal damage. I put in a new radiator and radiator support and valve timing sensor. Everything else mechanical was ok. But then no spark. So we have tested every wire going from the coil to computer. All OK. All fuses have been removed and checked...

    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...

  19. Lost Socket in Spark Plug hole

    Soul Problems (Gen 1)
    Went to upgrade my new 2011 Soul (! w/2.0L), and dropped the socket down the spark plug hole. It doesn't seem to be all the way onto the spark plug, but stuck in there pretty good. Had bent up a brass coat hanger - got it stuck onto the bottom of the socket (by poking it through the hole (its...
