    I need to replace a leaking coolant tank and cant find the specs on the coolant anywhere. Has anyone flushed theirs or topped off? It's dark green so maybe it just undiluted ethylene glycol. I have the part and it looks fairly easy to change . Should I do a full system flush as well...

    My wife has about 600 miles on her new 2019 Kia Optima. She started to get out of her car at the store and the car alarm went off. She tried to start the car and it would not start. A lady came by and told her to press lock then unlock on the key fob. That worked. The alarm stopped, and she...

    Been a while since we did the rounds of Kickstarter and Indiegogo, and after sifting through this afternoon we found three clever new auto accessories that are at the very least worth taking a closer look at. The first of the pack is the most practical, but as you work down the list they get a...

    For the life of me I dont know why my driver door side speaker only gets a mid bass single meanwhile all other speakers receive the same I thought my speaker was blown or the tweeter and i changed speakers out with a good one and that didnt solve my problem. I rechecked the amp wiring and...

    Had just got back from a road trip down in Miami and was out and about to get ready to clean up my car from the aftermath. This afternoon as I was getting some McDonalds in Alpharetta there was a black Optima SX that was in front of me in the line. Optima badges were blacked out, looked like...

    Had this pop up out of nowhere today. It happened about 5 minutes into my drive. Left and right turn signals have also intermittently been flashing fast like the bulb is burned out, but will all of a sudden go back to normal. Any thoughts or ideas would be helpful. Car is a 2014 SXL with...
  14. Hybrids
    Ever since getting the 2017 Hybrid, the car felt solid with pretty good handling. I've driven it somewhat hard with the OEM tires and it felt pretty good but I always felt the tires were the weak link and I wanted it to roll a bit less in corners. Back in December, I drove a Stinger GT and my...

    I have a 2014 Optima EX and want to change out the OEM turn signal bulbs to LED bulbs. But, it seems like I might have to take apart part of the front end to get to the bulbs. Does anyone have a link to either a video or written directions (showing an easier way) on how to change out the bulbs...

    Hi guys, Noticed yesterday that one of my taillights is no longer lit up fully. Also noticed quite a while ago that I get a lot of condensation in both of my taillights. Wondering whether I should try to fix it or go over to KIA and have them replace both, I imagine they would be covered? Thanks.
