i also had that problem before until i replaced my engine fan, overhaul the radiator and relaced the waterpump. hope this will help you. drive carefully
I own a KIA BESTA since 1995 and it's been working perfectly well. I still get 15KM per ltr on regular city driving. It's roomy, fast and powerful. I guess the secret is on proper preventive maintenance.
try checking your water pump. it could have a leak. the shaft seal is always the culprit! it usually leaks when the engine is hot and water pressure is high.
i had the same problem before until i brought it to petron service shop along fb harisson near dfa. they have a very mechanic there, his name is orly, try bring your besta there, you wont regret. or call or text me 09163662805Originally posted by chedarz@Sep 17 2004, 07:02 PM
hello! it's my first time to post here.
we own a 99 model besta. it's been reliable until lately when we started having problem with its transmission. when we back up, the reverse releases. we've gone to several repair shops and they couldn't fix it. a friend who owns the same model said that he experiences the same thing. help!
Your problem is synchronizing ring trouble. It might be broken. I have an expert mechanic, his name is Arnel and if you want I can assist you. You can text me on 09176286571Originally posted by byahero@Nov 3 2004, 08:57 PM

I had a broken windshield, tinamaan ng kidlat during a thunderstorm! Freak accident. Anyway, I bought my windshield in Banaue, it was P2,500.00! I don't know the price now because it was last year when the freak accident happened.Originally posted by MA. LUISA R. GARCIA@Oct 15 2004, 10:24 AM
hi! im a new registrant, first time to post.
my view about kia besta van, is that it's a disappointment. (no offense meant to anybody.) most probably because we bought it second hand, and it's a 96 model.
since we had it, about five years ago, we've experienced a whole lot of breakdowns. The aircon was gone after two years, then we had the belt fan replaced at least four times in a month, until it worked, etc., etc. Now we had to replace some shaft and the front windshield (you don't want to know why).
Can you guys give advice or recommend a good and reliable technician. Also, please give suggestions on where i can find a replacement for the broken front windshield.
Thanks a bunch! Mornin!
By loose stick, do you mean excessive play of the shifting lever (stick) when on neutral? If that is the case, it is just a worn out fulcrum bushing. Just have it replaced and your problem is gone.Originally posted by butchi@Nov 16 2004, 10:06 PM
[ I am a new entrant. Is anybody out there have advise on a transmission having loose stick while engaging the gears. I own a 1996 besta van 2.2 model. Just recently changed the aircon compressor and find everything okay except for the transmission problem which is manageable.
