Did you ever pull the O2 sensor and check to see if it was clogged? Those nuts are rusted shut.
It was damaged when the transport company picked it up from that dealership and that dealership shows it was damaged when they received it, hence the tow company that towed it to the dealership was the last to have it. The picture they sent today to deny the claim is a joke. They sent the below blurry picture showing a while line EXACTLY where mine is damaged saying they denied it because the picture shows no damage. It cannot be anything else because if it was a reflection of the parking white stripe it would have reflected the entire length of the stripe not just in the one spot exactly where mine is damaged.If it was damaged in transit then the transport companies insurance should cover any damage.
They want $6900 there’s no blessings to count lol. I’m sorry for your luck. It seems weird that they wouldn’t fix yours. Are you the original owner? I wasn’t so maybe that’s why? I don’t know. I agree I am lucky they put a new engine in.You’re one lucky guy that Kia replaced your engine after they denied my claim 3 times for an engine that lost power through no fault of ours. It was a 2016 Sorento with 80000 miles on it. Said we weren’t loyal Kia customers when we own 3 of them. Will never buy another one. I have never heard from Kia even though they know those years were bad and many engines were replaced.
Put the new exhaust and catalytic converter in and count your blessings you’re not out $6000. Beware of pre 2018 used Kia’s.
The excessive oil consumption caused the manifold and catalytic converter problems. The partially burned oil will clog a catalytic converter and make it overheat.I understand that. The only proof I have is that it never did it before the engine went bad. I feel that if they felt liable enough to replace the engine they should carry the same liability over to any other problem that happened because of it.
I agree I was very lucky. It’s because I had the recall done before I took delivery of the vehicle, KDS or whatever it was. I said I “Feel” that if they felt liable enough to replace the engine then they should feel liable enough to make it safe to drive.However you managed to get KIA to replace the engine is beyond me, but count your blessings and move on. Take the car to an independent repair shop and get a estimate.
