Question about Kia Cars & Trucks

1 Answer

Hi If a warrant log book states two years for a battery but the battery label states three years guarantee which is correct.

Hi I brought a new Kia Picanto just under three years ago. The battery started playing up just after xmas so I booked the car into a Kia dealership to sort it out. They are saying that the battery although factory fitted is not covered under the battery label guarentee because the warrant log book states two years.

I had my kia rio fuel tank replaced because it was leaking now the fuel gauge indicates 3/4 full when tank is full...any ideas?

The float in the gas tank may be sticking & giving u that false reading. They should of brought this to your attn when the job was done. The shop that did the job should be able to at least give u a diagnosis of your problem. That PART wont be warranted w the job but as "professionals" u can ask them to cut u a break. Good luck

Were they recalled because of a problem with the hand brake

Enter your VIN number here. I had my Lexus fitted with new disc brakes and pads at a non-Lexus dealer and had the same problem. I took it back and they tightened it up. When I went to my Lexus dealership for my 6 month service, I mentioned it to them that the brake wouldn't hold. They came back and told me that although I had had new brakes and discs, they had assembled the handbrake incorrectly. $120 to reassemble and it was fine. Lesson learned :>) Kia Recall Kia Canada

and for the USA

I changed engine blocks on my log skidder, it has a 5.9 cummins. Used the same injector pump and new injectors, the engine starts and runs idle good but has no power.tried timing it a different way 100...

easy, no year stated nor injection system. (old pump, mpi or direct injected)
my guess is the pump has issues or the fuel feed to it is restricted.
id buy the FSM that matches that engine,and real the injection chapters, and all tests stated there.
any time im at a stall, out comes books, or online versionl

The alternator and battery are regulary going out. Four alternators and 2 batteries in less than 24 months. One mechanic said it had a unusual high amp draw on it while running but the Kia dealer could not...

That's a lot of alternators and batteries. Are the alternators you replace it with lifetime warranted? Also, what's the cca of the battery and the warranty of the batteries replaced in it?

I have a 02 kia rio that has an electrical problem. At first I thought the alternator was going bad so i put another one in and its also reading 12 volts coming out. I have brought it to another mechanic...

I once replaced my alternator in a S10 three times before I got a good one that put out 14 volts, this one came with a lifetime warranty and cost more than the others. Chevy's used to have a problem with a rebuilt supplier. Have you checked for a bad ground wire? Try one more time but, make them test it before you pay and install it.
