    Log out of your photobucket account and then try viewing them. Did you set them up so they can publicly be seen? Been a long time since I used Photobucket, so can't speak much on what could be causing it.

    Hmm. Why are these photos blurry with the watermark? Can't see anything.
  5. [EX] : 2.4L Engine Mods Worth It?

    Engine and Technical Discussion
    Swap out the entire suspension. This car is amazing when you replace all of it. I can't wait to AutoX it.
  6. Wheel locks

    Interior and Exterior Modifications
    It's about lowering yourself as a target of opportunity. I use the standard lug nut locks and have never had an issue. Thiefs could carry that piece around, but most are idiots and don't. That also still slows things down. They're just going to move on to the easier car in most cases.
  7. Lap3 uncle chip compared to Btr ecu tune

    Engine and Technical Discussion
    BTR does not sell a canned tune anymore. They do custom dyno tuning now. And they do a pretty **** good job. I got a 14% boost in HP. Went up 3 PSI on the dyno (18 to 21, getting 24psi on street). Went up like 30% in torque.

    If you have 80,000 miles on it, then the powertrain warranty covers it (as long as you are first owner).

    Take it into the dealership. It doesn't make sense to keep messing and figuring things out for weeks when you could take it in and probably know in a few hours. They're most likely going to be the ones that have to fix it anyway. If it's part of the recall, they'll cover the tow fee.

    They had my car for about 40 days after determination that it needs the work. Due to cars ahead of mine and waiting on an engine. They also originally told me the same time as yours. I recommend you except a month of your car being gone. Get a rental and they will pay for it.
  11. Seafoam treatment

    Engine and Technical Discussion
    I put Techron through my gas every 3k miles. Was told to do by several mechanics and techs at Kia compliment how clean internals of my engine are. Engine has now been taken fully apart and even after damage from recall issues, it was super clean and can tell well-maintained.
  12. Backup Camera

    3RD Generation Optima (2011-2015)
    The backup cam dies all the time. It will just have to be replaced. Are you still under warranty?
  13. KiA run around?

    New Member Introductions
    Yes, the rod bearing damage happens from the oil issues.Not getting the ECU update doesn't matter. The ECU update was just an early warning sensor so you could know about the death prior to death. The only recall ongoing that involves full engine replacement is covered for life if it is that...

    The recall is related to the oil pump and issues there.

    Is there a "mark all as read" feature? It was really nice to be able to see the name of the thread that was last responded to on a board and the name of the person that responded. I am assuming this layout does not support that?
