My 2012 kia soul...

My 2012 kia soul + stopped running above 10 MPH . The temperature guaguage goes to zero. After the engine is shut off and restarted the auto is back to normal for a while then it happens again.

Mechanic's Assistant: How many miles are on the car? Have you checked the coolant level?

120000 yes

Mechanic's Assistant: Are you fixing your Soul yourself? What have you tried so far?

No, I am going to take it to dealer.

Hey how are you ,I will Try to Help you with This Issue

is there a check engine light on dash flashing or steady on ?

each time you turn off ,it reset ,drives a little then go into limp mode or lack of power and ca not pass 10 mph ?

what is the mileage on it now ?

If you do not mind me asking are you looking for the most possible causes and taking it to a repair shop or you are repairing it yourself and you need step by step instructions

The light is steady on. Yes it resets and when I stop it goes back to limp mode...The mileage is 120000+. I plan to have shop do repairs.

Can you tell me if the temp gauge goes to zero before this happens ?

Ask Your Own Kia Question

I believe what is happening is the ( Cam (camshaft position sensor ) CKP sensor are losing ignition signal & computer shutting car off, when you tun it off it reset until it sees fault again ?

ckp ( crank shaft position sensor or cam shaft position sensor ) when you take it to dealer they will scan and get faults for car computer memory and confirm and replace

around $300 fix
