Kia Maintenance Questions? Ask a Mechanic for Answers ASAP
Hello, I am Jose Sebastian. Your automotive expert, It's a pleasure to me to attend your question. Thank you very much for trust in just answer.
Dear customer, could you send me a video so I can appreciate the sound for myself?
Dear customer I think you have sent me the wrong picture, I don't know if you can correctly send me a video of the vehicle with the sound so I can hear it for myself also you can use the YouTube platform upload a video and share me the link through this medium
Dear customer be careful with this type of sound because usually it can be engine lubrication problems, it happens a lot when the oil pump has problems, it can even be a camshaft or crankshaft knock and the problem is that driving the vehicle with these knocks can cause excessive wear on the engine leading to high repair costs, but it can also be simply a problem in one of the accessory pulleys how in the alternator pulley in the air compressor or even simply a tensioner can also be a problem in the engine timing distribution kit but it is recommended that when this type of noise occurs I do not drive the vehicle and is checked as soon as possible.
I hope this info to be helpful, my goal is to give you the best advice i can, I hope to be helpful, if you have any doubt or want to know anything else please do not hesitate to reply back.
Kind regards, Sebastian.
