  3. inspect fuel tank air filter* and fuel filter* at 30000 miles

    Soul General Discussion (Gen 1)
    How do you check the fuel tank air filter on 2013 soul? What is the * mean on the chart? How do you check the fuel filter? The repair manual describes how to replace both but exactly how do they "check" the fuel tank air filter at the 30000 mile inspection other than to see no external leaks or...

    I have a 2010 Soul Base model and the fuel gauge was reading under half. It has been extremely cold here for a week, so I thought I should fill up my tank. I put the nozzle in the tank and squeezed the handle....only to have the gas "burp" back out at me instantly! I knew the tank couldnt be...

  13. Diesel fuel put in tank by accident

    Soul Problems (Gen 1)
    Ok, my teen mistakenly put diesel in the tank and I need to drain it. Does anyone have suggestions? I know I have to change the fuel filter and maybe the spark plugs. I spoke to a mechanic friend who said I can drain the tank by "jumping" the fuel pump and letting it pump out all the old...

    Soul Problems (Gen 1)
    I have a 2011 KIA Soul and every time I put gas in it, when the pump turns off, gas pours out down the side of the car. I've owned the car since April and each time this has happened whether I let the pump turn off automatically or I try to turn it off in time. Took to the dealer & they said I...
  16. Distance traveled with full tank to fuel light going off

    Soul General Discussion (Gen 1)
    Curious what mileage you folks are getting before needing to fill up tank. Just got my worst tank going into 50mile hour wind 320 then filling. I put gas hose in filler and first click shut off. Over filling is bad on today's modern charcoal canister vehicles FYI.

  19. Snow Tank

    Soul General Discussion (Gen 1)
    Now, I think that the soul performs rather well in the snow. Especially for being a light front wheel drive car. Now, could you imagine if the soul had an option for 4WD? Like the levers you used in the old subarus? Pull up on a little lever, and bam, the rear wheels kick in. That would be...
  20. Gas tank filler tube

    Soul Problems (Gen 1)
    When filling up my soul with gas, and after the gas handle automatically shuts off, if I try to squeeze any more gas in it some gas back flows out the filler tube and runs down the out side of the quarter panel. Any one else have this issue?
