    Also maintenance was always done at dealership. Also in the book, they say to change the iridium sparks plug at 168k on the cars.
    That is not your car. This is for GDI/MPI engines.

    Yours has 1.6 T-GDI (Turbo GDI) engine and those require much more often spark plugs changes. Also oil changes are more frequent... MPI 7500 miles, TGDI 5000 miles.
    My dealership did not know what the correct interval was or how much oil the engine needed... so I had to pay attention. Maybe because mine was the only 1.6T GDI Forte they ever serviced.


    Man, if you are good with tools - you can do it.
    If not - get someone take care of it.



    Now, I would ask you do something else.
    Although you did not say what is your location, based on km as distance unit, I'd presume Canada.
    Anyway, maybe it is time to call KIA and ask them for assistance?

    If the car REALLY had all maintenance done by service, ask them for out for warranty repair assistance. Also called good will repair. If you politely present them records and current state of the car, they might be willing to cover a major part of the repair.
    If I am not mistaken, injectors could qualify for powertrain warranty.

    It is worth a shot.
    I had success with this twice (Hyundai and FIAT), where the latter was way out of warranty (time) and I am the 3rd owner, but they still covered 80% of the repair (there was a TSB, though)...
    Drives:
    2016 KIA Forte5 SX 1.6 T-GDI, A/T ("cheap GTI" - surprises many drivers) - SOLD... Some OEM and aftermarket parts left after... see my FS thread in market section.
    2014 FIAT 500e (my first EV - awesome toy!!)
    2015 AUDI Q5 (for wife...)
    2016 FIAT 500X Trekking Plus AWD with Roof and Beats (for wife)

    Just looked at mine, RHD 1.6 T-GDI can't even find the injector rail or the injectors without pulling parts off, unless you are very skilled or have access to someone who knows how, don't do this job, I would just pay a shop before trying this one myself.

    on another topic with you being in Canada going into winter, if the car is cold enough the door windows can stick to the door trims and not drop 5mm to clear the roof channel, if this happens and you pull hard to open the door it won't close till you warm up the window to unstick the glass.

    It got me till I looked at it and watched the glass move as I open/close the door.

    Yes I'm in Canada.

    Dropped my car at a local garage that charge 70$/h instead of 140$/h, but based on your comment jat63 I'm a little scared, because it is general mechanic, but are they really good with direct injection engine and highly technological boosted engine like the 1.6T that need to remove every part to fix......

    Now I dont have this problem anymore because I have indoor garage at home and work but the trick is to use an used credit card and force it between the seal and the window across the window.

    2.23 seconds in you will see the injectors under the intake manifold.

    It doesn't seem like pulling the manifold is that difficult. I say that based on other people mentioning pulling it without complaining about it being difficult.

    What cylinder did you say was having issues?

    So the little garage found out kia dealership are autistic and that the coil on my cylinder 3 is bad and my injector is fine.

    The one on the cylinder 2 is about to go out too so they switched it with 2 lightly used kia coil 80$ for two and the car run fine now.
