  1. Car won't start......

    Forte Forums Lounge
    Lights don't take much current, but starting the car takes an enormous amount of current. The battery may have enough for the lights, but not the starter. It sounds like a dying battery to me. Take it to AutoZone and have them load test it.
  2. Missing tweeters from my 2017 Forte5 SX. What the heck?

    Hatch General Discussions
    From your other post about discovering component speakers in the front doors and coaxials in the rear, it just sounds like the dash tweeters were removed in place of those in the front doors. The previous owner upgraded the speakers for sure.
  3. How to install an aftermarket head unit and maintain factory camera, mic, USB and SWC

    Forte Audio, Video and Electronics
    Thanks! I'm glad my write-up helped you out! I really like having the factory USB connection, so I can just plug into the port in the center console. :)
  4. 2017 Forte LX repair manual

    Sedan General Discussions
    Here is the factory service manual. Bookmark that.
  5. How to install an aftermarket head unit and maintain factory camera, mic, USB and SWC

    Forte Audio, Video and Electronics
    I did not cut or splice the factory wires. All of the wiring was done using the Metra wiring harnesses. These two harnesses just plug into the factory wiring harnesses, which then connects all the new wires into the car's system. The gory details are all outlined above if you go back and read...
  6. 2017 Forte S: Strut Brace Bar: Potential Rattling

    Sedan General Discussions
    I installed a strut tower brace on mine (see my thread), and there are no rattles coming from the shroud at all. I can't imagine what rattles they would be talking about, unless they're just not competent and do something bizarre. The rear torsion bar is far more important, if you don't have...
  7. 2014 Forte turn signal socket

    Koup General Discussion
    And what year? Your title says 2014, but you posted this in the 2010-2013 Koup section.
  8. 2014 Forte turn signal socket

    Koup General Discussion
    1) What exact model do you have? 2) I did a quick google search and found all kinds of results for the turn signal socket including Kia part numbers, but it varied by model, hence question 1).
  9. verify oil capacity for 2014 EX 2.0 liter

    Kia Forte (2014+) 2.0L GDI Engine Discussion
    I actually linked to the specific page for each section, but yeah, the factory service manual is a must for doing any work on the car.
  10. 2010 Kia Forte ex gas smell/bad mileage

    Noobie questions forum.
    This is worrisome. There must be a fuel leak for that much of a loss. The check engine light is likely from a loss of line/tank pressure. I would get the car to a qualified mechanic and not drive it until this is solved. Leaking fuel could lead to a very bad outcome.
  11. verify oil capacity for 2014 EX 2.0 liter

    Kia Forte (2014+) 2.0L GDI Engine Discussion
    From the FSM for oil capacity: Capacity: Total: 4.5 L (1.19 U.S.gal., 4.76 U.S.qt., 3.96 lmp.qt.) Oil pan: 3.7 L (0.98 U.S.gal., 3.91 U.S.qt., 3.26 lmp.qt.) Drain and refill including oil filter: 4.0 L (1.06 U.S.gal., 4.23 U.S.qt., 3.52 lmp.qt.) From the FSM for the automatic transaxle...
  12. Suspension 2017 Forte

    Sedan General Discussions
    Adding a rear torsion bar to my '14 Forte5 made a world of difference. The car handles so much better now. I also upgraded the tires to BFGoodrich G-Force COMP-2 A/S SL, which are so much better than the oem tires.
  13. 2016 forte arm rest latch change?

    Sedan General Discussions
    I've removed my center console several times now. It's really not that hard at all. Plus it allows you to do a really good cleaning of bits you can't get to normally.
  14. Evilla Motorsports Forte5 axle back exhaust install and review

    Performance Mod's
    My exhaust saga finally came to a successful close. My frankenclamp solution still leaked. The middle clamp pinched the pipe adapters in two places causing new leaks. But the flange joint no longer leaked at least. This morning I brought it to a welder who lives nearby, and he took care of it...
  15. Evilla Motorsports Forte5 axle back exhaust install and review

    Performance Mod's
    When I ordered mine they didn't have any selectable options at all, so it's interesting to see they have various options available now. Mine came with a 2.5" (outside diameter) pipe. My OEM exhaust is 2.125", and the OEM 1.6's exhaust is slightly larger, maybe 2.25". There are 2 different...
  16. Evilla Motorsports Forte5 axle back exhaust install and review

    Performance Mod's
    I've been suffering from more exhaust leaks where the original and aftermarket flanges meet. I've tried with and without max temp RTV, and I've used new OEM gaskets every time. Well, I finally got smart and took a closer look at what's going on. The main issue is this exhaust is really made for...
  17. Bluetooth Audio Issues

    Hatch General Discussion
    That's really weird then. I also have a G7, but I replaced my head unit with a Sony that does Android Auto, so I plug my phone in via the USB interface to get all the Android Auto goodies. But I do get voice directions if I unmute maps. I usually keep it muted though. Can you play music from...
  18. High Flow Cat or Test Pipe - 2011 Koup SX (2.4 L)

    Koup General Discussion
    lol oh, I didn't even notice the drop down with the one option. Why do they have that $9999 price even listed there? So weird. I'm really happy with my Evilla axle back exhaust, granted that's for the 2014+ Forte5 only though.
  19. High Flow Cat or Test Pipe - 2011 Koup SX (2.4 L)

    Koup General Discussion
    Price: $9,999.00 A bit pricey? It's more than the value of the car. WTF? But hey, you get 7WHP/6TQ, and they have a price match guarantee!

    Kia Forte 2.0L Engine Discussion
    1) fill out your profile with more info 2) you posted this in the 2010-2013 forum, not the 2014+ forum. 3) a CAI option for our engine was just discussed here: https://www.forteforums.com/forums/kia-forte-2014-2-0l-gdi-engine-discussion/104572-cold-air-intake-options-2016-2-0-a.html 4) look...
