  1. Kia Forte 2.0L Engine Discussion
    Hey guys. I own a 2011 Kia Forte Koup EX. The performance of this car is outstanding 95% of the time. But every once in a while, my traction light comes on and it feels like it won't shift past 3rd gear or go over 2,000 RPM. I pull over, turn off the vehicle, and turn it back on, and that...

  3. Kia Forte 2.0L Engine Discussion
    I have a kia forte 2012 LX automatic transmission, with 76,900k miles, 2 months ago it started to make a very annoying noise, usually it is very loud at 1500rpm, has someone had that problem? I suspect a chain tensioner or a stuck valve, I attach a video that is not mine but it is exactly the...
  4. Kia Forte 2.4L Engine Discussion
    Hey guys so I have a 2011 sx every now and then when I get on the freeway my car will suddenly lose power, I’m not sure if it’s a piston misfiring. I’ll turn my abs off and when I get to about 4-5000 Rpms my car with start to sputter it’s like if I ripped the e-brake for a split second. I don’t...

  6. Noobie questions forum.
    Hey everyone, So my 2010 2.0l forte w/ around 110k on it has been making an awful sound for a while now. I'd say around around 6-7 months tbh. It seems to be located around the left side of the engine (by the accessory drive area) and it is like a whirring or droning noise. This noise...
  7. Noobie questions forum.
    This has been a nightmare. I washed my car, and started to head home when I noticed a little knocking sound under the hood. I thought, well it has idled a minute so maybe the lack of Rpm's is the cause. I pressed the gas, and it stopped. I went on my way but after about 20 miles, it began...
  8. Kia Forte (2014+) 1.8L Engine Discussion
    Hi everyone! I'm new here; this is my first post. I recently bought this car just over a month ago; been loving it so far, but it's always had this engine ticking noise at cold start (sitting overnight) since I bought it. I recorded the noise with my phone - here is the YouTube video of it: If...
  9. Sedan General Discussion
    So I made a post a few days ago about my issues with my engine misfiring after being "repaired" twice. Today I took it back again and the dealer explained that cylinder #2 had lower compression than the others. They've given me a rental while they work with Kia HQ on what steps to take in the...
  10. Performance Modifications
    I have been doing a lot of research but to no help. I am looking to see what all I will need to add a turbo to my stock 2.0 Forte. I have already looked into a turbo from TurboKitz.com and that is more than likely what I will be going with. I also will be getting their Cold Air Intake and their...
