Hi,

My Kia Soul is 2 years old and recently when I take off, my soul drags and takes a while to idle to a decent speed I might add that it always dragged going over incline and small hills but lately it happens when I take off. Someone said that it could be that I need new spark plugs but I don't know, does anyone have any ideas?

Hi Rose!

You didn't fill out your "Drives" in your control panel, so we have no idea what car you're driving, what engine, how many miles, etc.

I'd have NO idea how to respond to you without knowing ALL about your car. Eh?

Cheers!
:cool:

sorry, I edited my 'drives', I'm up to 21,400 miles, and I can't remember the engine size, hopefully the information that I provided will help.

thank you.

never heard of a "Soul Jeep", is it manual or automatic? I wouldn't think you would need new spark plugs at that low of mileage, as they usually last 50-100k miles. "idle to a decent speed" - what exactly do you mean by that? What is your rpm idle speed? Maybe you have a vacuum leak or something similar, is all wiring and connections in place under the hood?

I would think taking it to a garage and putting on their computer will probably tell you your answer very quickly.

At 12k+ miles, my little Gertrude takes off like a scalded cat when I put the gas pedal DOWN!

Anything else, I'd say, is completely unacceptable. I'd get that car to the dealer or a reputable repair garage as soon as possible.

Also, be aware of what engine is in your car. It's important, when asking for any kind of help.

Good Luck,
:cool:
