Some tires are just noisier than others but check the tread depth of your tires. Some tires tend to get noiser as they wear, the excessive noise could be a signal that your tires are getting close to the end of their life. It could also be a signal that they have uneven wear.

If you have a Discount Tire near you we'd be happy to inspect them for free for you. We can double check the pressure, check to see if they need to be rotated and we'll be happy to make a recommendation for a new tire if its time to replace them.

I HAVE A 2003 KIA SORENTO LX & IT IS USING TO MUCH GAS LATELY>>>HOW WILL I KNOW IF I NEED MY FUEL PUMP REPLACED? WHERE IS THE PCV VALVE LOCATED?


the fuel pump will not cause bad gas mileage.the spark plugs may need changing,fuel filter,air filter,plug wires(basically a tune-up),or the thermostat probably needs changing as this can cause poor gas mileage as it won`t allow the motor to get to proper operating temperature(computer monitors temp)and commands fuel injectors on longer(spray more fuel).driving habits change over time look at this also.cold whether driving also will use more fuel.pcv valve i can`t help you,maybe a parts store will show were it is if it has one.the only time you change the fuel pump is when it gets noisy or it quits altogether,or the pressure is good but the fuel volume is not to specs.

2008 kia sportage with damage to tire valve stem, TPMS sensor is okay. Tire installer states valve stem is corroded and tire has slow lwak through the valve stem. how do i get this fixed?


Replace the valve stem or have it replaced. There is a special tool to unscrew the valve stem. Remove the wheel and tire from the car and depress the pin in the stem to release the air in the tire. When you have about 90% of the air out of the tire, insert the tool into the stem an turn counterclockwise to remove. After you install the new valve stem, get a ride to a gas station that offers free air and fill the tire up. As long as the tire is still seated to the lip of the rim (check just for your safety but I very highly doubt it unseated from the rim) and fill the tire to the cold psi rating which is stamped on the sidewall of the tire. If you want to check the tire itself for a slow leak prior to doing the steps above, here is what to do. Get a pan or plastic tub that is sightly wider and longer than the tire and rim. Fill the tub with water and set them it in the water (while it is still filled with air) and slowly roll the tire in place and look for small air bubbles to rise. If you see bubbles, there is a leak.

Broken air pressure sensor on Spectra 5


anything is possible when you drive on a flat. could have been the shop, but there is really no way of knowing. you can replace the sensor with a regular old valve stem, but the light will be on constantly on the dash.

I have a 2007 kia spectra my tire pressure warning light went on


check not only the tires on the car, check the level on the spare tire to, cause some of those have the sensors also... most cars will reset the light once you have the pressures right and drive on the tires a few miles to reset the light.... hope this helps you..

Noisy noisy noisy!


Without being there, it is hard to say. You need to consider tire condition - large mud tires are noisy; tires over inflated will be noisy; a bad driveline u-joint will make noise; drive line bearings, wheel bearings all could be a factor. have a mechanic friend ride with you and help pinpoint the cause.
