My daughter has a 2001 Kia Sephia that runs fine idling in park. When she shifts into gear, it sputters and stalls. What could be causing this?


I would clean the inside of the throttle body first. Back of the plate and where it seats. Doesn't clear up. Check compression next. It is a 2001.

Car has no pick up it sputters back fires and then stalls...we replaced plugs it yesterday it ran fine for 1 day this morning on the way to work it started the whole thing over again...REALLY Frustraited...


Vacuum leak or timing check all vacume lines and air intake look for any cracks or hole in air intake after your air intake sensor map or maf whatever u have on a kia. Bad air leak can foul your plugs fast.

Kia sephia 2000 car died in traffic while driving and now won't start. fuel pump is working and fuses are ok.


I assume you have checked the ignition system and that you are getting a spark at the plugs. If there is no spark, it could be either the Trigger Module inside the distributor or the coil itself.

1999 kia sephia cranks over but wont start, sputters like it wants to now and again and in between sputtering it spins fast without that "thump" of compression it normal has. replaced fuel pump and fuel...


check your timing belt put no 1 cylnder at top dead center timing mark at 0 remove your distrebuter cap and see if the rotor is pointing at number 1 spark plug
if not replace that belt (replacement is at 60k I believe) sounds like the fix good luck CJ ps no. one on compression stroke
