Question about 2006 Kia Spectra
Seems to be no issue with transmission, but with fuel delivery. Will be driving along and all of a sudden the engine sputters, like it is not getting fuel. Does best when cold. And stop and go traffic is a nightmare. Yes, the check engine light is on, and flashes at times. But will go for miles on highway with no problem then, sputter, sputter, making me very wary to drive, but a person has to get to work. But money is so tight, I just can't spend $100's to have it hooked to a machine at the dealer to diagnose and then $100's more if it is like a fuel filter. I have been told the fuel filter and unit is in the gas tank, is this true? Please help, it was 8 degrees driving home tonight and I am so scared I am going to be left beside the road. Thanks!
Got car back from dealer. They could not diagnose but Kia tech support told them to check the fuel vapor cannister for fuel and sure enough had some fuel inside (should only be vapor going) into this canister) which indicated a bad purge control valve and/or canister close valve. So they replaced everyhting associated witht his fuel vapor recovery system (i think that's the correct term) and running good....so far. Fortunately this was under warranty but sure it would be quite an expensivve repair.
