  1. Kia Forte 2.0L Engine Discussion
    My ‘11 is sitting at 123k miles and I replaced the power steering fluid (original fluid since new) with Prestone Asian type fluid. I used a oil hand pump that I got from my work (major auto parts store). I put one end of the tubing supplied with said hand pump into the reservoir and the other...
  2. Hatch General Discussion
    So I bought an Xtool A30M Bluetooth scan tool recently to make sure the car was running fine. I noticed however that the oxygen sensor (B1, S1) was all over the place in the readings. -8, -26, -64, -10 and the graph would keep going up and down all over the place. Is the readings supposed to be...
  3. Hatch General Discussion
    I’m wondering if this is normal for an almost 12 year old car. Bought the 2011 Hatch brand new. No issues at new. Now (2022) it seems to idle high upon startup at any point of the day no matter how long we’ve driven it or on cold start. It will idle around 1,100 until we decide to shift into...

I have the 6 speed manual transmission with it and I think that the trans should go with any engine but I'm not sure about it. is...
  6. Hatch General Discussion
    How many motor mounts and trans mounts in a 2011 Hatch? Also I’m getting a strong vibration throughout the cabin area, mostly upfront with driver and front passenger, also mostly at a stop light, but also sometimes in the back too. When I accelerate again, the vibrations go away. Could this be...
  7. Sedan General Discussion
    Hey friends. Need to figure out where the Grey wire coming from the bottom of the engine bay fuse box goes. It ends at the starter solenoid, goes up to the starter relay in the main fuse panel, then goes where? I suspect to the ignition but need proof. The problem: Fully functional car in...
  8. Noobie questions forum.
    Hello, I've had my 2011 Koup for about a couple of months now, and I really don't know if it is an SX or EX. Are there any specific things I need to look for to distinguish it? Thanks!
