Go to a Kia dealer, go in the side door to the parts desk. Be nice and courteously ask the parts guy to show you an illustrated parts breakdown of your car's brake system. He will not charge you for this, but you must be patient. Then with a little bit of effort you will know the name and part number, how much it costs at a dealer, and about how long it takes a Kia mechanic to replace it. You could also look for a service manual and/or an illustrated parts breakdown of the whole car burned to a CD over on ebay.

Back breaks won't bleed


If the brakes work, then you know that fluid is moving which would indicate that the bleed screws are likely clogged and will need to be replaced. If there is not fluid moving to the back then you may have a bad master cylinder or a brake line has clogged or failed. The flexible lines that run from the hardlines to the wheel do degrade over time and can clog up and not allow brake fluid to flow.

Power steering fluid bubbles up thru the resevoir


Hello, If it is overflowing fluid you have a problem in the pump or reservoir drain(supply) line. If there appears to be air bubbles in the reservoir, look at the supply line that comes off of the bottom of the reservoir.

The supply line goes to the front of the truck (You did not indicate vehicle) and there usually is a small fluid cooler that it attaches to. The supply line itself has both metal and rubber sections and where the supply line is clipped to the frame with plastic clips it corrodes. The line has a habit of rusting in this fixture and when a small hole is formed, it will draw in air. Often the fluid will leak against the frame and be concealed and blown off from the wind passing under the vehicle when driving.

The fluid flows in a loop, and if the fluid is collecting on top by the reservoir, it is not draining and flowing fast enough to clear the reservoir. You could also be overfilled and as the fluid heats up it will expand. Check your fluid levels.

I hope my solution is very helpful and if you need Model specific info, please include which Model you have.

When turning steering wheel I have squeaking sounds coming from inside rubber boots that cover rods that steer front wheels and the power steering fluid has a burnt smell. ( I don't know the name of these...


This is the steering rack. If it's not leaking fluid out of the bellows more than likely the fluid needs to be changed.
This can be done by removing the 2 lines from the pump that attach to the rack draining the fluid, then reconnect the lines and refill with fresh power steering fluid.
When draining make sure to take the cap/dipstick off of the pump.

The back windshield washer fluid will not come out the motor seeems to run and the wiper works fine but the fluid will not seem to come out.


Locate where little hose attaches closest to body of vehicle, at pivot end of wiper, and pull/pry it off, and try pump to see if it's getting that far. If it is, blow from squirt end back with air nozzle or some other source and clear line. When air flowing through again, re-attach & see if it works.

I had to change out the rear right brake calipers in my wives 2002 gmc envoy. after installing i went to bleed the brakes but nothing is coming thru. i checked the fluid level and it is full. the fluid is...


The caliper should have been bled on a bench prior to installation. You sound like you hung it on the car dry and empty and are now trying to fill it right there at the wheel. This is possible but takes MUCHO longer as you found out. You can do what you're doing, or take the caliper back off and pour as much fluid in it as you can get, with the bleeder open. What you have now is a huge air bubble that fills the cavity inside the caliper. You're almost there, keep going!!! Good luck.

Tranmission oil change


There is a drain plug on your accord for this. Run the car to reach operating temp. and remove passenger side front wheel for easier access to drain plug, which is located near the front of the wheel/tire. The drain plug is removed by inserting a 1/2 inch drive ratchet, or extension into the square recess of the drain plug, and then remove like u would a regular bolt or nut. Have a drain pan ready. Replace plug, tighten to 36 ft lbs , replace wheel, with a long thin funnel, add fluid thru dipstick opening with engine running, shift thru the gears several times to allow fluid to flow thru trans. Do not overfill, check level with car parked on level surface. To check fluid level, do NOT screw dipstick in. Let me know if u need more help/info.

Power steering rack


jj, here's the procedure:
turn ignition key to locked position and turn steering wheel to the left until the wheel is locked. Remove key.
While vehicle still on ground disconnect the steering column shaft coupler from the steering gear intermediate coupler. Remove the cotter key the nut and the pinch bolt.
Loosen wheel lug, raise vehicle support securely w/ jack stands, remove the wheels.
Raise the insulating wrap on the power steering return hose to expose the hose clamp. Remove the hose clamp and detach the hose, Drain ps fluid thru the hose.
Remove both tie rod ends from steering knuckles.
Remove the 2 bolts and loosen the 3rd attaching the anti-lock brakes Hydraulic control Unit (HCU) to the suspension cradle.
then rotate the HCU rearward to allow access to the cradle bolt and nut just forward of the hcu.
Remove the nuts and bolts attaching the cradle plate to the bottom of the front suspension cradle, then remove cradle plate from cradle.
Remove bracket attaching power steering fluid line to the front suspension cradle.
Detach ps.fluid pressure and return lines from the ps gear.
Remove the 3 bolts and nuts mounting the steering gear to the front suspension cradle.
Lower the steering gear from the suspension cradle enough to allow access to the intermediate coupler roll pin. Install a roll pin remover/installer tool (they always get u with that darn special tool, don't they?) or equivalent set up. Pull the roll pin out of the intermediate coupler. Separate the intermediate coupler from the shaft of the steering gear Remove the steering gear assembly from the suspension cradle. Well, it's too late to give the install procedure, but u seem to have it under control, so let me know if u need more info and how u make out! Merry Christmas!

Sometimes (when changing the brake calipers on disk brakes, or changing wheel cylinders on drum brake systems) the mechanic will clamp a vise grip pliers on the rubber hose to prevent hydraulic fluid from dripping out.  This can break the internal fiber lining in the rubber hose.  Then the fluid flow can be blocked.  When you press the brake pedal, fluid may not flow to the wheel or wheels.  As you press harder, the fluid may suddenly flow through the line, causing the brakes to suddenly activate.  
Or an even more likely problem, your brakes drag (stay on) and get hot, because the fluid cannot flow back to the master cylinder when you release the brake pedal.  In other words, when you press the brake you force fluid through a partially blocked rubber hose.  But the return of the fluid (backwards through the rubber hose) is caused not by pressure, but just by equilibrium, a balancing act.  Well, if the line (rubber hose) is blocked, the fluid stays in the caliper or wheel cylinder, and the brake is still on, and the brake gets hot.
