Hard to start, dies at Idol occasionally


Asked by Jun 10, 2017 at 04:48 PM about the 2010 Kia Soul

Question type: General

My Kia Soul just recently became difficult to start
after driving and 3 times has died while sitting at a
stop light.  My engine light is not on. Up until 2
weeks ago it would start in one turn of the key..
now at time I have to hold it and let it keep turning.
Runs good and idols good. Recommendations? I
really don't want to go to Kia as their service price
will probably be more expensive then replacing the
car.  119,700 miles

Still haven't figured it out and neither has Kia. Have to take it back when a "Master Mechanic" is on staff.

Any luck? Same problem here.


Finally fixed.... Crankshaft Position Sensor.
