2021 Kia Telluride Engine Q&A

  • Why does the check engine light come on when I start my Telluride? Generally, your check engine light turning on upon ignition is not a bad thing. This is just your Telluride testing its circuits. The light should go off shortly. Bring your vehicle in if it doesn't.
  • Why is my Kia Telluride making engine noise? Strange under-the-hood noises can point to problems within your Kia Telluride engine. Tapping or knocking could mean you're low on oil. Whistling sounds could mean you have an intake leak or misaligned belt. Squealing can be traced back to a loose fan belt, and grinding could be a sign that something is wrong with your brakes — not the engine.
  • What could damage a Kia engine? [ordered-list-1-item-3-1]Are you unknowingly damaging your Kia Telluride engine? Certain driving habits can damage your engine and should be avoided. These habits include 'running on fumes,' revving your engine while the vehicle is in Park, or pushing 'the pedal to the metal' before the engine has warmed up. Help sustain your engine’s performance and efficiency by staying miles away from these bad driving practices.
  • Is it okay to put water in my Kia Telluride radiator? It’s not recommended you put water in your Telluride radiator unless it’s an emergency. Under normal circumstances, use a 50/50 mix of water and coolant or a pre-mixed coolant. But, if you need to keep driving while out of coolant, using water is better than driving with an empty coolant reservoir.
  • What can cause a Telluride engine to suddenly stop? Your Telluride car engine could stop suddenly due to low fuel, electrical issues, overheating, a faulty ignition system, mechanical troubles, or sensor problems.
