    That's not the engine light it's the money light ! Per Mr. O lol

  2. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars Taylor Fenoglio says:

    I'm curious on what percent of vehicles come in under 100k miles with machanical issues vs cars over 100k miles

  3. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars Carl Otto says:

    Damn. Nice work Ray.

  4. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars s snerd says:

    Ray…I gotta say…..I wish I was 1/2 the mechanic you are…..

  5. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars Hola! LkOutMtnMan says:

    It's not a Kia, it's a Aki –as in Aki Breaky Heart or should I say Aki breaky billfold! lol

  6. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars 720 Vending says:

    love the video awesome to see a car i own on the channel i have an 08 sportage with the same motor just replaced the exhaust flex pipe to seal the pipes back up

  7. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars Anthony H says:

    Good find. Great video brother.

  8. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars Rob Peabo says:

    Good pickup on the cracked ISCA housing. It almost looks like someone tried to take it off without unscrewing it. I can't see any other way it would have cracked without actually having removed it & trying to destroy it out of the vehicle.

    This Kia is probably the first car's engine cover I have seen that only shows four intake runners in the moulding when it is a V6 with 6 intake runners which are clearly visible with the cover off. Good one Kia!

  9. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars Vincent Robinette says:

    The first thing I thought when I saw the fuel trim, which is differences between injection volume from cylinder to cylinder, as well as overall lean, (all injectors trying to add more fuel) I though "Vacuum leak"! I was expecting something like a blown diaphragm in the vacuum brake booster, or more simply, a split, cracked, or unconnected vacuum line. I would NEVER have suspected a broken air idle speed control valve. I have never seen that before. I wonder what would have broken that, since it is merely an air valve with only an electronic connection. Nothing that could have put stress on the housing of the AISC.

  10. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars Devs Klaus says:

    Can someone tell me what scanner he has?

  11. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars jtoddk98 says:

    A 2006 Kia with 45k miles??? Gotta love the old lady special

  12. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars Martin Burns says:

    Any orifice of your choice. Beep beep. Great timing lol. Great video Ray.

  13. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars Bradford says:

    Tus videos son siempre los mejores, siempre recibo notificaciones cada vez que subes un video, por cierto, gracias por recomendarme a Waylon Emmett, el experto en criptografía, realmente ha cambiado mi vida, estoy agradecido*

  14. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars Harry Tongelidis says:

    Backfire probably broken the old one, too many cracks for it to be caused by stress.

  15. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars Michael Simmons says:

    So you can do a Homer Simpson.the episode we're he said if I want smoke blown up my ass I would sit home with a small length of tube and a pack of cigarettes 🤣😂🤣sorry it's late

  16. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars Andy Peek says:

    I have always suspected that automotive engineering involved smoke, mirrors and electronic wizardry, now I know its true.
    Thanks Ray, this proves my theory.
    Good onya mate.

  17. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars James Johnston says:

    You just reminded me of my neighbor's old jeep. It had an intake manifold gasket leak. You could hear that whistle a block away.

  18. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars DaveChad1063 says:

    nice

  19. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars Pat Jago says:

    What’s the saying? Plastic makes it possible?

  20. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars wherescorolla says:

    These things (at least the 4 cyl) are bulletproof. Had one with the 4 cyl that I sold with 240k miles a few years back and still to this day putting around town.

  21. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars Wayne says:

    Ray how about old school trick and spray brake cleaner to look for intake leaks and see if the idle changes when you spray it on different spots?

  22. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars Hunter Tucker says:

    Just trying to learn here, but what made you think intake leak versus an actual lean condition? Would you expect to see misfire codes for an actual lean condition and that’s what lead you to go for intake leak?

  23. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars SJ FK says:

    Your videos are a demonstration to get any scan tool besides snap on. It seems like it’s 5-6 years old or more. Autel and launch aren’t nearly as clumsy/clunky and are faster and easier to use.

  24. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars Hank Worthington says:

    Ray I think you are a great mechanic love you videos keep them coming

  25. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars Craig W says:

    Love your vids Ray. The smart ass in me, however, would like to point out that the top sensor bolt clearly has a Phillips head slot, making the socket and space for said socket unnecessary.

  26. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars The Flat Rock says:

    I bet blue RTV could have sealed the cracks for a time but it was severely cracked at several places. I’d only RTV it if it was my own vehicle and the part was pricey

  27. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars Antonio Claudio Michael says:

    Nice find on the rogue air leak that unit was severely cracked good video @Rainman Ray's Repairs

  28. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars The Flat Rock says:

    I believe engine covers retain heat that degrades plastic and rubber components.

  29. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars Antonio Claudio Michael says:

    Lean would be way to much air so the ecm is leaning the fuel out I would say Vacuum leak @Rainman Ray's Repairs

  30. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars Adam Lynn says:

    Bad intake

  31. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars Jimmy, Making it work says:

    Smoking is bad for you, except whendoing diags ..Then smoking is fine and sometimes even recommended.

  32. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars chris o'keeffe says:

    Here for the dobled dos

  33. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars Sean Lacroix says:

    It rides like a tank because Kia builds junk and the suspension is probably crap on that thing.

  34. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars Randall Stevenson says:

    No matter what I may drive, I will never purchase a Kia, that company is scummy.

  35. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars Kevin Curry says:

    Another awesome video.

  36. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars larrybl says:

    I would have JB Welded that crack.

  37. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars John Wright says:

    As Scotty Kilmer says stupid beauty covers. lol

  38. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars Justin Turner says:

    Learn so much from you. Which helps me maintain my own vehicle. Thanks

  39. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars Ran da buffer says:

    Is it ONLY Kia’s and Hyundai’s that have so many problems with low miles? Lol

  40. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars firedchiefpaul says:

    Are all mechanics as skilled at diagnosis as you are?

  41. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars Ross Flores says:

    Very common failure part on Kia and Hyundai engines I personally have replaced several dozens of those little stepper motors.

  42. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars Tom Nielsen says:

    Are you sure that you are not blowing smoke up their assets…..?😃

  43. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars G POWER DRAGON says:

    my guess on the trouble codes lean burn now meaning there's a vacuum leak possibly somewhere but I guess Scotty is right that KIA plastic junk keeps breaking in the Heat

  44. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars Steve Laminack says:

    It's amazing to me as a retired airline mechanic that until the latest generation of multi million dollar commercial aircraft there has been no centralized diagnostic system like the code scanner. It's been pretty much VOM meter, specific to system test equipment and knowledge of the particular system. And even then I'm not sure the diagnostics are on the level of this few hundred dollar scanner. We were just getting the 787 and newer 777 aircraft at the airline I worked for when I retired a few years ago.

  45. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars E-Nonymouse says:

    This smoke maker is new, I wonder if you can inject die into it to see more clearly in UV if its leaking.

  46. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars D Port says:

    Any machine can be a smoke machine if used INcorrectly!

  47. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars yanni6556 says:

    That seems like a lot of wear for that low mileage

  48. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars Rob H says:

    KIA @ 50k miles = end of life

  49. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars Jerry Fitzpatrick says:

    Guessing no one has checked under the hood (opened it) in a while. How long would it take to build that Dirt Dobber nest?

  50. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars BixbyConsequence says:

    Thank you for not bitching about Every Single Engine Cover you ever remove.
