Kia Troubleshooting Questions? Ask a Mechanic
Hi. Is this a 4 or 6 cyl engine? 2 or***** Also where exactly do you see the fluid leaking from?
And the fluid is still leaking from there?
It is not common for that to leak. It is possible that the system may have a restriction in the system so fluid is not flowing easily from and back to the pump. Pressure may be building cause the leak from too much pressure. THat is why the valve is there.
THere is no inline filter. There is a screen in the reseviour. if it plugs up it will just restrict fluid from going into the pump and the pump usually just whines. But it could be worth checking and cleaning anyway as a place to start.
Let me know if you need any more help on this. Also please take a moment to rate my assistance. Thank you.
