My neighbor sold their Kia Avella 2005 model B3 engine to me last July 2009 with a mileage of 196k. At first, I was having second thoughts about buying it, considering its mileage, but after doing a test drive, I decided to buy it since it was only 80k.

The aircon is okay, even during the middle of the day. During night time, I would turn on-off the thermostat coz it's really that cold.

The fuel consumption is 8-10km/liter city driving, depending on the traffic. On long drives its 14km/liter.

Ever since I bought the unit, I had repaired the alternator twice; each cost me 2,500. Next time I would buy surplus or reconditioning alternator to save cost and life span.

The engine is doing good, idling is good at 800rpm. I normally change gear at 1500rpm, but sometimes at 1800rpm from 3rd to fourth gear.

Overall, I don't have any regrets about buying a Kia Avella.

I bought my Kia Avella last October 2005. Until now I have the unit, but lately I can't find somebody to fix the engine. Sometimes it's normal, but now, most of the time, the engine gets going wild. It will reach even to 5000 rpm, then it will turn off. I almost consulted all of the Cebu car repair shops, but nobody could fix it. Can anybody help? Text me 09062054307

Try cleaning your IAC with carb cleaner and what is your spark plug?

I had same trouble last time with a B5 engine delta but it went away when we changed the oil and filter.

Just go with unleaded gasoline.

Try replacing your fuel pump. It did happen to my KIA Avella Delta.

It is from the speedmeter line. Try to disconnect it from gear box and drive. The tick will gone.

I have a Kia Avella Delta - 98. And there's quite a big problem with it, because when drive up a hill, the car just turns off without you changing any gears, or the gear is only in 1st gear. I consulted many mechanics on this topic, but no one has solved this problem. I'm hoping I can get some advice regarding this topic? Thanks in advance.

Hi, who is the best mechanic for the Kia Avella in Davao City?

26th Jul 2014, 04:46


Can anyone help me find surplus stores for my Kia Delta Avella engine parts, like an intake manifold hose?

I'm Cris from Cebu.

My Kia Avella Delta won't start in the morning at all, or I find it difficult to start in the morning. Please, I want to know what is the cause, if anyone has an idea about it?

13th Sep 2014, 09:57

My go to store is at Aim High Auto Supply at Gen. Echavez St.. Call them first at 2338742 or 2328942. Talk to the salesman, not the saleslady because she is Tagalog and easily misunderstands your needs. No disrespect to all ladies intended.

I have a KIA Avella and I just want to ask if what is the best engine oil for the car, can anyone help me?

9th Dec 2014, 13:08

Hi guys, I have a Kia Avella from General Santos City. The car is good so far when it comes to gas consumption; my only problem is that when you turn the air con on, it suddenly drops the RPM very low, and if not turned off, it vibrates like it's going to turn the engine off. It's good without air con.

Can anyone suggest to me the possible issue and a solution?

09394017477, thanks guys.

Hi. I'm Denz from Davao. Just recently I had my Kia Avella engine top-overhauled, and it was good except that my fuel efficiency went from 12km/ltr down to 6km/ltr... what could have gone wrong with the engine repair? Hope you can give me some advice.

Thanks and God bless all!

Hi guys, I'm Bonz. I have a Kia Avella here in Cebu. I've been driving it like 2 years already and it's all good...

But now a problem occurred when I was driving. The car went wild, and the RPM rises to 4k-5k, and when I hit gas, the engine will begin to die. When I turn the car off, it won't start and it smells like gas inside the car. Then I waited like 10 minutes and the car started again and was back to normal.

At first it happened rarely, but now frequently. Please help. I've been suffering from this for a year already. Anyone who has fixed this, please text me. 0926-6930141.

Thanks everyone.

Hi guys, I'm Virgiel from Cebu. I just bought a Kia Pride (B3 engine). The problem is when I will turn on the air con, there's a knocking noise, but without air con, no noise at all. But even if there is a knocking noise, the air con still runs good. Please help me with this guys.

Try to find Jojo from YSK marketing. He troubleshoots Kia Avella and Prides. YSK marketing is near Transition Parts (Dacudao).

4th Nov 2015, 06:59

I think YSK only sells spare parts, but maybe you can try inquiring about a technician. I bought my my KIA Avella 1.3 last Oct. 10, 2010. I have a taxi driver driving Kia 1.3 for the last 5 years as my mechanic. He's very good and very honest, but he now lives in Kidapawan, North Cotabato. I have to ask him first if he's willing to travel to distant places to render services. floridaprints@yahoo.com is my email.

Just check the belt tensioner; maybe the bearing is worn out...

24th Nov 2015, 12:56

Change your fuel pump.

5th Dec 2015, 08:20

We bought our Kia Avella last 2013. The running condition is still good until now, but there's one problem; when it turns right or left, there's a sound like "takatak takatak"... Our mechanic suggested to change the ball joint CV joint, but after the repair the sound is still there. But when it is in neutral, there is no sound if you turn the wheel left or right.

I need some advice. I'm from Laguna.

10th Jan 2016, 04:40

I had the same problem sir. My mechanic told me that it maybe due to shortage in the gasoline intake. Therefore the injectors should be cleaned.

Also clean the air filter. In my case when I bought my Avella, the filter was empty; that is why my engine is prone to dust.

18th Feb 2016, 15:59

I also have that kind of problem, but after I replaced the fuel pump with a new one, it's solved the problem. It's easy to diagnose the problem if you know how to pull the ERROR CODE.

14th May 2016, 10:42

Kapitan spare parts.

15th Jun 2016, 05:00

You need to change the velocity to fix that noise.

24th Sep 2016, 04:33

I have a B3 engine, we had the same problem, I noticed that sound after an oil change and the mechanic suggested that we should put in an additive to the oil. The oil becomes thicker and when the engine is still cold, the oil could not get to where it should be.
