Ok so a little background, I am in no ways a mechanic or engineer. I am a tinkerer and a hobbyist and I am trying to learn about car modding.
My first project is to install a DIY Boost gauge on my 2014 Forte Koup SX. To achieve this I plan to use an Arduino and a pressure sensor to measure...

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 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...
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.

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?
