Kia Troubleshooting Questions? Ask a Mechanic
Hello, let me review your request. Please stand by.
Does the light flicker after the engine is warmed up or all the time?
Ok and does the light go off when you accelerate?
Do you hear any noise from the engine when the light flickers?
Did the body shop change the oil?
Since the oil level is good and no noises from the engine he symptom you are experiencing could be caused by faulty oil pressure switch or wrong viscosity oil used. Since it happened after body repair need to make surefor lose oil pressure switch connector.
Do you have a 1.6L or 2.0L engine?
Attached is the manufacture provided location for the oil pressure switch. It is located on top of the oil filter
Hello, just checking if any updates?
Ok. Also check with kia if your vehicle is still under powertrain warranty.
I doubt that any engine will just show up randomly. Could be just wrong vicosity oil used.
Could be something as simple as that.
