    So i've had a 2016 2.0T a little while now and over the last month i've noticed a hissing, air escaping noise coming from the left side in the rear of the cabin when accelerating above 2500rpm. This is my first turbo vehicle so I want check if this is normal spooling or is there an issue with...

  3. Kia Soul Forum
    Hi folks, I LOVE my new car... but I have a question about her. Off the lot, she drove nice and smooth - but about a week after I got her home (and after a new tank of gas), I noticed that she seems a bit "jerkier" in low gears. Despite being an automatic, I can feel her shifting and...
  4. Kia Seltos
    Took delivery of a 2022 Kia Seltos SX (Turbo) 4 days ago and I am loving the new ride. This vehicle is a step up from the 2015 and 2021 Kia Soul (both very good cars). The 2015 Soul (Base) was traded in for a 2021 Soul (GT Line) back in March, and the 2021 traded in for the Seltos. I wanted...

  7. Kia Cee'd Forum
    Hello, My friend bought few years ago that car. The seller told that the turbo was replaced few months before, and the car is remaped. For a while the car runned well, but after about 40-50K kms the turbo became noisy. His mecanic told that he must replace the turbo. They changed only the...
  8. 4G (2011+) Optima
    Hey all, I've got a 2012 Optima SX with just over 110k miles on it. Late 2017 or 2018 I had the engine block replaced as part of the recall and have had very little major repairs needed. I'm the second owner, I bought it ~2015. I do regular maintenance with synthetic oil every 5k miles or so...
  9. Kia Forte/Cerato (TD) and Koup Discussion Forum
    Hi everyone, I've done a little bit of digging into my problem, but the videos I see online aren't quite the sound I hear from my engine. This Forte is brand new, 800km so far. Here's what it sounds like on a cold start: And here's what it sounds like when the engine is warmed up: The...
  10. 4G (2011+) Optima
    Other than making the gas companies richer, is there any benefit to running 89 or 93 octane in my 16 1.6t? Car seems to run fine on 87 but I know other turbo cars need 89 or 93.
  11. 2003-2010 Sorento Forum
    I've purchased a 2007 2.5 diesel Sorento. 200k on clock. It runs fine but there a really significant turbo lag and some black smoke when I really put the foot down. Runs smooth generally though. Mechanic checked it out at last device. He said the turbo has a bit of forward and side to side...

  13. 2014 - 2015 Sorento Forum
    2015 Sorento 2.4 ... recently had the engine recall swap from KIA, and they declined to add the turbo unit (which I thought would be just sporting of them, for all the trouble they were putting me through). Transparency: I ask for ridiculous stuff sometimes... and sometimes I get it! You...

    Hello, New to the forum...I’m looking to confirm the motor/engine similarities between a 2014 Hyundai Veloster/Veloster Turbo and 2016 Kia Rio5.

  16. Kia Forte/Cerato (TD) and Koup Discussion Forum
    Hey all, I have gone to KIA dealerships, consulted manuals and forums and cannot seem to find what kind of Turbo this model Forte has. I'd love to add bolt-ons and tune to a desired amount of psi (with a controller and several other tune-ups) but have no luck knowing what's under the hood. Any...

  18. 2011 - 2013 (XM) Sorento Forum
    I'm looking at a 2016 Turbo Sorento with 18,000 miles that fits my needs exactly except that the engine ticks rather loudly when accelerating only. The Service Manager says this is normal but I'm cautious. Can anyone else shed any light if this is a potential issue or just normal with the turbo...
