Question about 2003 Kia Rio

2 Answers

Car won't start

A couple of month's ago I would have hesitant starts like it was slow and sometimes not turning at all then she would start. Then last month after shutting it off it wouldn't start. I put in a new battery everything seemed fine. two weeks ago the engine light came on. then yesterday after shutting it off when i tried to start it 10 minutes later nothing. I got a boost from my friend. went home. the next day it wouldn't start. I went and bought a jumpstart pack and that won't start it. It is now in my driveway kia killed in action. any suggestions besides torching! lol

Why is my 1989 Pontiac Firebird hesitating and now wont turn over?


How long since a tune-up? Include air filter, fuel filter, gas injector cleaner...Also check the Idle Air Control valve on your 3.4 V-6...It can be dirty or clogged over time...Located on the air intake plenum...your auto parts store can also show you a diagram...Fuel pressure must be constant also, your Firebird is worth having the fuel pressure regulator checked, as well as the fuel pump...

IF IT WILL RUN WITH STATER FLUID YOU HAVE A FUEL ISSUE. SINCE PUMP SOUNDS DIFFERENT I WOULD START THERE. CHECK FOR VOLUME & PRESSURE ON FUEL RAIL IF IT NOES NOT THEN THE PROBLEM IS IGNITON, CHECK FOR SPARK
