Kia Troubleshooting Questions? Ask a Mechanic
Hi Darryl, the TSB # ***** ***** and cover vehicles to VIN # ***** This TSB covers the Crankshaft Bolt there is no TSB for the entire crankshaft sorry.
Just a thought does the engine run but has no power or is it cranking very fast when you try to start it but does it not run? Hope this works out for you. I will be available tomorrow after 10am eastern standard time.
Hi Darryl, it sounds like the crankshaft bolt initially loosened up, which would have been a fairly simple repair but as a result of continued driving the crankshaft was damaged as well. What kind of price is the shop charging you for the repair? Additionally, if you decide to do the repairs ask them if you can take a picture of the crankshaft and lower crankshaft gear so I can ascertain if they are indeed damaged? I hope that is helpful.
Hi Darryl, it's John I was hoping you were satisfied with my help and if so could you please rate me so I can close this ticket I would really appreciate it. Have a great New Year!
