My Kia starts to rattle after about twenty mins of driving and the temperature gauge rises, the oil light then comes on. If I continue to drive the rattle gets louder. Any ideas where to start?

You need to check to see if the engine is losing oil pressure. Use a mechanical oil pressure gauge to check.

Coolant is all good. What is the oil pressure supposed to be on the Kia carnival, as we are going to check oil pressure.

Which engine do you have? We need the engine code or capacity.
