Tell me about it. I have 2007 Sportage Oil Leak

I have 2007 Sportage Oil Leak and I'm begging for help.

A while back I was having issues replacing the alternator and no one ever answered.

It also is obvious when you read there are very little amount of technical people that support this board.

It is seldom anyone leaves photo(s) of how to do something which is strange. Also, for a forum which is dedicated to specific vehicles. For example, you go to a Dodge Forum and the questions and answers are pretty much detailed with anything you need. Photos are essential in helping somebody figure out or do a maintenance job that somebody ask about. Why is this forum so different. Because there are lousy maintenance and repair books on KIA. So essentially KIA owners need more help. I realize that the dealers want you to bring in your vehicle and not tell you a thing, but nobody on this forum really technically knows KIA Vehicles. There aren't a few decent KIA mechanics on the entire forum? It is obvious by responses and as I mentioned photos for procedures, etc. that there are few technical people in this entire forum of all KIA models.

A forum that just is basically for discussion but no real help really isn't a good forum. This forum really needs a technical part of each vehicle selection in and itself that addresses these issues. It is a shame that people that post here very seldom get real help that they are asking for. I am sure many people feel disappointed when they log in over and over repeatedly and wait for an answer and get none to help them.

A while back you never responded to a post addressed to you in that alternator thread.

The oil leak thread you created today (less than an hour ago) - have you considered that most frequent members (enthusiasts) haven't got home from work yet.

Please update your profile detail, ......at least location and vehicle (year & model).

Click on “User CP” near the top right of the page, then "Edit Your Details" on the left.
