2005 Kia Picanto Repair Question
Kia Picanto Noise Problem
I am currently unemployed and live in South Afria. I would greatly appreciate your help. God bless
I need to clarify this, was the transmission ever replaced or it was only repaired 8 times?
Is this an automatic or manual transmission?
Below 50 kph, does shfting to neutral and allowing vehicle to coast result in the noise?
Do you need to keep topping up the coolant in radiator?
Is the cooling fan working correctly?
Under what circumstances does the overheating occur?
It is an automatic transmission, the car loses power and battles to move into the next gear. The car went back 15 times . The boxes, planatory gears and other parts for gearbox have been replaced. So when I pull away there is a whinning noise
The faing fine but think it makes like a grrrr noise
If the fan is noisy, it means a failing motor and that can result in overheating when the motor stops intermittently.
You did not answer my other questions.
Does the noise occur when coasting below 50 kph? Does it go away when it shifts to 3rd or OD? You need to verify and I believe the transmission is causing the noise. The planetary gears are not the cause, it could be the needle bearings of the clutches.
I have to replace the fan?
Yes its does make a noise below 50 kph
Does the noise occur when you shift to neutral and allow it to coast?
If the fan motor is noisy, it is a matter of time before it completely fails. Regardless of it being the cause of the overheating or not, you would have to replace it sooner or later.
When I put gears in drive and drive off that's when it makes the whinng noise and if car reaches like 50kph its goes away and intermitantly it battle to change over to the next gear. Its almost like the car losing power. I hope I am explaining well
I am still not getting the information I want and I will go one by one.
Does the whining noise occur when you shift to neutral and allow it to coast?
Let me try again, the car is parked and gear in park "P"then I start the car I the change the gear to Drive "D" put down the hand brake and drive off that's when the car makes the whinning noise. This is an automatic transmission, am I making sense
ti accelarate the noise goes away if I stop at robot and drive off when robot green it whines and the more I accelarate to get a faster speed the whine goes away.
I mean the more I accelerate to get a faster speed the noise goes away
