    Hi, today I noticed that the engine noise got considerably louder in my Kia Forte 19'. I think that is knocking/ticking but I'm not sure, engine is not cold and it only has 16K km. Any ideas what it could be? Forte Engine Noise

    Here's what I mean: I have a '16 Forte with the Nu 1.8 MPI engine & I'm in the USA. My owner's manual recommends 5W-20 for optimum fuel economy, but states 5W-30 and 10W-30 are also accepted. I was looking at the owner's manual for a 2018 Kia Cerato (which is also known as the Forte or K3)...

    I have a 2018 forte with the standard small touch screen receiver and backup camera. I was wondering if the 7” display is plug and play compatible? I would really like the larger radio that comes with Apple/Android car play. Does anyone know if this is a compatible upgrade?

Any metal flakes or anything that might...
