What is causing this?

Asked by Aug 13, 2016 at 10:58 PM about the Kia Soul

Question type: Maintenance & Repair

I have a 2012 kia soul,  I went in a big covert and it bent the control arm.
There is a awful noise comming from passenger side under the hood it does it
when I press the gas. It has been about 8 months since the accident, and
there no lights that come on in the engine

1 Answer


8 months on a bent control arm??? Noise could be from cv axle. Could be a lot of things. Slamming into a culvert hard enough to damage a control arm can do a number of other things too. Get it checked out pronto. Sorry can't be more specific, but it's something that needs a hands-on inspection.
