    Not VW this time though... Seems that that KIA/Hyundai have been raided in relation to cheat devices. I hope this comes to nothing (I wouldn't KIA to be lumped-in with the German emission-cheating-monkey-poisoners) but I guess some of you diesel owners might be rubbing your hands now, looking...

    Hi guys, Looking for some help as we are struggling to find a replacement turbo for a 2008 Cee'd. It's a 2008 1.6crdi (88bhp), we bought a replacement turbo the other day but it wasn't the correct model and were having trouble telling which one is the one we're after, could anyone on here...

    Hello everyone, I hope you stay healthy and safe. Recently I've changed the fluid of my Kia Sportage Automatic Transmission, but I didn't measure how much fluid I've drained from the transmission. I did fill it with 4.5 liters, but it seems that is not the right amount of fluid to fill back...

    This week I had my harmonic balancer self destruct. I chose to replace the balancer, belt and seal behind the balancer. Cost in total with tax was $1100 Australian dollars. I had just finished a 300km motorway drive on a hot day and pulled on to a B road. A give away was that the battery charge...

    Hi All Posting this after our 2013 1.7 Diesel Sportage left my OH and our 8 month old stranded in Lane 2 of the A1 in rush hour this morning... By the time I got to her she had managed to get it off the carriageway to the side of the road thankfully, but she was distraught and very shaken up...

    Hiya, I bought a used car. I'm honestly in love with it, first car. It was 1°C outside yesterday and the car was making typical warning sound to inform me of icy conditions. However, as I was driving,I either let the wheel go in a hole in a road and it made really loud bang or something hit...

They replaced the housing and the pump this morning and the sound is gone, also my MPG has become significantly better ( at least for my car that is..) Mechanic said one other car with the same engine from the same MY with roughly the...

    I am having starting issues with a recently purchased 2012 Ceed II 1.4 CRDI. From cold it would just turn over ages before firing up. It was quicker once warm, but still not as quick as it should've been. Found all glow plugs were faulty, so replaced. And then replaced starter since it was...

    Hi! First time posting here. Have just bought a 2012 1.4 diesel venga and I love it. I bought it and was told the glow plugs needed doing, hence difficult start, however after driving it home the starting is still much longer than should be as glow plugs shouldn't be an issue once the engine is...

    Hi all, hope everyone's well. I've just been offered a 2014 Sportage and really liked the car, however, its a diesel and I've never had one before. We mostly use the car for local trips with the occasional (maybe once or twice a month) longer motorway trip, although with everything going on god...

    I have the above and first it was hard to start. Had a garage change the glow plugs Whilst I was at it had fuel Filter, oil filter and coolant changed. Before the work was done it ran fine even when the engine was cold. Now after the work it starts on half a turn even after a week but the...
  12. Sportage 2010 - 2015

Example, we left the car a whole week and no problem but leaving it two days recently and it was dead, the other day we also left car for just about 5 hours and...
