Question about 1998 Kia Sephia

1 Answer

Replaced fuel filter, now won't start

1998 Kia Sephia started dieing while driving, when slowing down engine just shuts off. Replaced the fuel filter and now I can not get the car to start at all. When the key is turned on you hear noise at fuel injectors, but nothing at fuel pump. Is there an emergency cutoff switch? Checked the fuel lines at filter and no gas going thru line at all. Please help!

A cut off switch is almost never the problem just hummor me for a second and please check that the fuel filter is installed correctly not backwards then check the fuel pump fuse and relay if all good check for power at the pump and a good ground if all this is good then the pump need replacement

2000 kia sephia cranks but engine wont run


The fuel pump may have died. Can you hear it turn on briefly, by turning the key to "on"? You may have to stand by the gas tank while someone turns the key to on. It should turn on for about 2 seconds and then stop, after pressurizing the fuel system. If you don't hear it, then check the fuel pump fuse. If the fuse is good, and the pump won't run, one needs to check that the fuel pump wire at the tank connector has battery voltage on it when the engine is cranking-then, you can assume the pump needs replacing.
If the pump is working and you have gas up to the engine, you would next check the ignition system. Start that by checking for spark on one of the spark plug wires.

Have you checked the fuel pressure? I think that the fuel pressure is between 55 or 60 pounds. They won't run under 52 pounds.

sorry to tell you but you have a blown headgasket or cracked cylinder head. that is why the coolant blows out of the radiator and the engine won't start due to engine compression getting into the cooling system.

I would check ignition items or fuel delivery if it just died on you. It wont be the battery unless it was dead and the alternator stop working.

Check the fuel system. Cheap first....fuel filter. Then the fuel pump. The engine does actually turn over, but it just won't start...correct?
