I have same problem but only affects my passenger side low beam. I have replaced bulb many times, checked wiring, socket, dealership can\'t figure it out.. Is just one of Kia\'s little quirks. I drive with high beams and fortunately they are dim enough that no one complains. Some times u just gotta put up with it! Good car otherwise

Renault trafic wont start...engine warning light flashing


The light and the word stop should be sending you a clear message . The engine hard starting and sluggish is also sending a message and if you do not heed the message and have the fault codes read and the problem fixed then the next message may be replace the engine or gear box . The light is there --not to be an annoyance ---but to inform you that something drastic is going wrong and it needs urgent attention.

Do you smell gasoline fuel ?? When there's too much fuel, it saturates the spark plugs, preventing ignition. Let it sit for an hour to let spark plugs dry, then it starts OK later. Next time, turn starter without giving any throttle or very small throttle as engine turns. Myself, when my 2006 Dodge Plymouth minivan (sitting in storage) needs to start, I squirt (half second) starting fluid into air filter, close the air filter housing to trap flammable gas from starting fluid, then turn the engine without pressing on throttle. When the engine starts is when I give it a little throttle to bring up the RPM to 2,000 until it idles on its own without stalling from cold engine.

Lumina still won't start until engine cools down for an hour


The coil pak is probably bad.
you need three things to start air fuel and spark. You turn it oven and it wont run,if the fuel is the problem try this.spray a little 2+2 carb cleaner down the throttl body if it runs ,fuel is the problem.
It can also be as simple as the ECM the computer could be going bad.

Car wont start


ok having that much oil over the limit will not matter at all ,,if it does not turn over at all check your battery is ok /full,,if it is and it still wont turn over the only other problem it could be is the starter motor is had.. its jammed or seized try tapping the starter motor with a little force if it starts its on its way out because u had to tap it to start it . if it still doesent it has seized but that will be the problem ..

also just make sure all your wiring is still on the starter motor
