Hello there, just my van had a problem and I am not sure what is going on, the guy who inspect it, toll me to get my car to the Kia dealer cause he wasn't sure what happens, when I start my car, to prevent the check engine light turn on, I have to wait until the car is warm, if I don't do that the light appear and the esc off too then my car stop working and I have to restart again, is become slow, and I hear a noise when accelerate, when I am on freeway start to shake about 70mph, I'm not sure but I think there something wrong with the transmission, this can be possible if my car is only 92xxx miles?

 The "check engine" light is an indicator for a system that monitors many electronic functions in the system, also called the "malfunction indicator lamp" (MIL). It can come on for any of hundreds of different causes from any of the systems that the computer monitors. Some are very important and can lead to further component or engine damage and some are emissions related not as serious but still a problem and need to be repaired.

Your first step is to have the computer scanned to retrieve the trouble codes that were set when the check engine light came on. Those codes will give you specific information about what the computer saw and will get you pointed in the right direction to find your problem. With a 1996 or newer and some 95 cars and you have an AutoZone or Advanced auto parts in your area, they will read them for free. Once you have these code numbers, we can be a lot more specific about what your problem may be.


We offer help in answering questions, clarifying things or giving advice but we are not a substitute for an on-site inspection by a professional.

When it comes to something that has many moving parts, produces heat, and is subjected to many different types of environmental conditions, anything is possible.

Since we volunteer our time and knowledge, we ask for you to please follow up when a problem is resolved.

Comment only: 92,000 miles! If you really think about that, that's a LOT of miles. Vehicles that get extraordinary care can and do go lots more without major issues or long gone if neglected by then. Note that is 3 times around the whole world + some!

With the best of care at some point plain upholstery and seat springs have had it along with all the silly things that move not essential like the drivetrain.

Anything can wear out in that kind of miles IMO,
