Hi does anyone no where I can get a 2.7 diesel motor for a 2004 Kia Pregio van
Hi, my 2004 kia pregio starter motor burnt out, so I fitted a brand new one.
Turns engine over but now wont start.
Just wondering if the starter motor has damaged another electrical part or wiring?
Could it have caused the fuel cut off switch to malfunction and now blocking fuel to injectors - also glow plug fuse located under drivers seat keeps blowing out ?
Hi there :)
Recently the driver door's lock system stopped working therefore you can only have access to the van from the passenger side. We removed the panel and apparently there is a tiny spring missing there. Any idea where can we get a replacement from? Many thanks
I have a Kia pregio 2005 2.7L diesel. Purchase used 1,5 year ago. When I bought the van it had a very loose shifter. I could get it in all the gears easily al dough it felt like a stiff gearbox but I assumed that is normal with this vans.(read the reviews online)
I managed to fix the problem of the loose shifter when I found out that the bushes on the bottom of the stift were worn out. I replaced them with a similar size rubber/plastic tube. Also did I press now rubbers in the round ends of the shifting cable that is fitted on the gearbox as they where completely gone. Problem solved!
Now( > 1 year later) it’s getting harder to get it in gear. That counts for especially 1st, 2nd, 3th gear and reverse. When I press the clutch pedal down and try to put it in first it blocks, have to push hard or pull down to second gear and back up to first to get it in without using to much force. It feels like the cogwheels are not probably lined up. Sometimes while driving and shifting gears (1st to 2nd, 2nd to 3th) I can feel the shifting shift moving back and forward before it slight in gear. Note: it’s getting wurst but it’s not all the time.
I am not sure what it can be but I’m thinking about either the synchronise rings, or air in my clutch system, which doesn’t properly disengage the gearbox.
I was going to flush the clutch system with dot 4 brake fluid and see if this worked.
But because of heave rain this days I have to wait for a couple of days to do it on the driveway... so I thought I use this opportunity to ask you guys if anyone had the same or a similar problem and can guide me through to solve this problem.
Or if someone have tips to flush the clutch system anything is more then welcome!

Many Thanks in advance.
Nice work on the shifter bushes. We did this to two of our vans and the other one went to over 520000kms with no attention but were all totally worn out. Just make sure that they are not tight but a l...ittle loose. We did have a clutch go on us. The springs on the plate went. This had an odd effect on the shifting a little similar to yours perhaps but degraded super quick to the point we couldn’t drive it unless we pushed it first to get it into 2 gear as we were desperate to get it home. We checked our hydraulics by pushing on the pedal and watching the slave move. It moved through its full stroke so all good. Never had to repair or replace any hydraulics. We once had a gear box do something strange ( not anything as bad as what you’re describing here though) for a short while but it worked itself out then went for 300000kms and may still be going. The other two vans have not had gearbox problems. If you change the oil however and we never did in two of the high mileage vans you really have to make sure that you use the correct oil otherwise you’ll run a good risk of ruining the gearboxs’ yellow metals. This oil was twice the price of the more modern oils. That’s all I got for you.
