Below are examples of "interesting" statements I've found in some of Kia's Automotive Service & Repair documents. Even after accounting for poor Korean-to-English translation, it's clear they allow their engineers to write procedures. Their docs are intended for regular car mechanics (who are admittedly more technologically sophisticated than mechanics thirty years ago, but still...)

Enjoy.

-
Only telegrams containing known (initialized) identifiers are being supervised in the warning algorithm.
-
TPMS warning can be light on because the tire pressure declined by low temperature in the cold weather.
-
By using the tire lever, extract the external side wall of the tire and engage on the shoe of the machine.
Raise the tire to prepare the introduction of the tire lever to aid extraction of the second side wall, the same recommendations as for the first side wall will apply.
-
While maintaining the sensor contact with the rim by applying pressure to the back of the valve, slightly press on the cap towards the center of the wheel in order to adapt the angle of the valve/sensor to the profile of the rim.
-
Caution: The assembly tools have to never have a collision with the sensor.
-
Caution: The tire cannot be in contact with the sensor only after it is engaged in the rim and after the exceeded peak of traction. Therefore, generally at the end of the assembly
-
Check that DTC flash rate matches virgin state indication.
-
The oil pump is made of the aluminum (the reaction shaft support) to loose the weight and selects the parachoid type to improve the processing and the capacity efficiency at the low RPM range.
-
The retainer of each clutch is composed of the precision sheet metal parts to realize the productivity and the light weight.
-
Generally the oil remained in the piston oil pressure chamber pushes the piston by the centrifugal force. But to prevent the piston from being pushed, the oil filled in between the piston and the return spring retainer occurs the centrifugal force and both of the power is offset so that the piston don''t move. In result, it improves the durability and the shift control ability.
-
The roller type installed to the existing new generation AT needs support to move the roller when operating the parking system. The cam type for A4CF2 model doesn''t need the support and the structure is simpler. It only needs the guide to prevent from moving the cam idly.
-
The switch valve, the solenoid valve and the fail safe valve are operated to drive the vehicle at the 3rd speed and reverse even through the malfunction of the electronic control parts occur.
-
PWM solenoid valve is controlled linearly according to the duty ratio.
-
Lamps with a power dissipation much greater than total dissipation of the MIL and lamp in the tester may cause a fault indication.
-
The MIL is switched ON for an optical check by the driver.
-
For all other faults, the MIL may be extinguished after three subsequent sequential driving cycles during which the monitoring system responsible for illuminating the MIL functions without detecting the malfunction and if no other malfunction has been identified that would independently illuminate the MIL according to the requirements outlined above.
-
If a vehicle incorporates an engine control strategy that alters off idle fuel and/or spark control when the A/C system is on, the OBD II system shall monitor all electronic air conditioning system components for malfunctions that cause the system to fail to invoke the alternate control while the A/C system is on or cause the system to invoke the alternate control while the A/C system is off.
-
The diagnosis interface can also be used for testing the ECU during production of the ECU and for actuating the HCU in the test line of manufactories.
-
The proportioning valve, because of a mechanical device, has limitations to achieve an ideal brake force distribution to the rear wheels as well as to carry out the flexible brake force distribution proportioning to the vehicle load or weight increasing. And in the event of malfunctioning, driver cannot notice whether it fails or not.
