  3. Why you shouldn't use metal tire valve caps...:\

    Soul Problems (Gen 1)
    As far as I know, these are factory ones? Yesterday morning, I went to fill up the tire with air and had to use a wrench to get it off, which ended up breaking the valve stem and causing air to rush out in a matter of seconds (probably fully deflated in 15 seconds). I switched to plastic ones...

  5. Fumoto oil valve void warranty?

    Soul General Discussion (Gen 2)
    Anyone installed Fumoto valve on their Kia. I have used this valve on all my cars for the last 10 years. It is basically the best thing since sliced bread. Worried about putting it on my Kia as I'm still debating whether to use the dealer for oil changes as there "may" be warranty issues down...

  9. 1.6L valve adjustment

    How To / DIY (Gen 1)
    I'm at 72,000 miles on my 2013 1.6L. I searched but couldn't find a writeup on doing a valve adjustment. I was surprised to see that this car doesn't have hydraulic valve adjusters. What type of valve clearance mechanism does it have? screw and locknut? shims? Also where do I turn the motor...
  10. recessed tire valve stems

    Soul Problems (Gen 1)
    Does anyone else find the valve stems hard to get to to add air? The wheel covers stick out rather far and the opening in the cover for access to the valve is rather small. I am afraid to try to jam a standard gas station air hose nozzle in there. I have the standard 15" steel wheels with...

    Hi there, I just traded my old Civic for a 2013 Soul +. I was told that the Soul has a timing chain rather than the rubber belt in the Civic. Can anyone confirm this for me. - Thanks
  17. Valve Cover

    Soul Problems (Gen 1)
    Hi Folks, I don't believe it's an oil leak, but I've been noticing an oil wet residue on the top part of the valve cover as if it has a weeping valve cover gasket or weeping oil fill cap. Is this common? I haven't noticed any fluid levels dropping, but maybe it's some "blow out" from the oil...
  18. Valve Stem Covers (after-market)?

    Soul Tire & Wheel (Gen 1)
    I found some valve stem covers that I REALLY want.....REALLLLY want. And, obviously, because I am such a newb at this stuff (being a girl and all :rolleyes:), I called the dealer to ask some questions about if they are standard sizing, etc. Service told me to just be careful as they have seen...

    Soul Problems (Gen 1)
    Hello all. Long time listener, first time caller. Somehow my wife's Soul ended up with about half the threads broken off the front passenger side valve stem today. It almost looks like about 1/4" of the threaded part of the valve was cut off with a hacksaw. She said it came off when she was...
