If you went to Kia dealer last Feb and they did not solve problem and it is still a problem in Dec, then you are the problem. Make the dealer fix the darn thing!

The check / service engine light means there is a problem with the performance the engine computer has detected. The flashing light means the problem is serious.
You need to have the engine computer checked for trouble codes to proceed.

My 2001 Kia optima will not accelerate over 3000 rpm


I had that exact problem with my 2005 Kia optima.. It suddenly started one morning.. My Kia would not turn over.. I felt it was a power issue so I unattached my after market fog-lights that I have attached to my battery.. That got my ride to start, but upon driving it refused to go past 3000 rpms (in all gears)... I took apart my battery terminals and scrubbed them down with a tooth brush and coca-cola.. That was a perfect fix for my situation.. My Kia ran perfectly right after...
Good luck

My 1998 gmc sonoma wont start when cold. fuel pressure is 60lbs. ive changed thermostat sensor cap rotor wires new battery. i cant figure it out please help


A VERY COMMON CAUSE OF THAT IS THE ENGINE COOLANT TEMPERATURE SENSOR, YOU WILL NEED TO VERIFY PROPER OPERATION WITH A LIVE DATA SCANNER, BEFORE U TURN IT ON IN MORNINGS OR COLD, COLD ENGINE LOOK FOR CTS READING IT MAY READ -40 DEGREES, IF SO THEN SENSOR IS MALFUNCTIONING, BUT WILL NOT SET A "SERVICE ENGINE SOON" LAMP WARNING. OTHER WAY TO CHECK IS TO DISCONNECT SENSOR, I AM ASSUMING THAT WEATHER IS ABOVE 20 DEGREES. LET ME KNOW IF THIS HELPS, CAN ASSIST YOU FURTHER WITH UPDATES

Will not start when below 40 degrees cranks and cranks if above 45 starts but runs ruff till warm


you need to have the engine coolant switch checked,since the computers rely solely on sensors,the ect tells the computer how cold or hot it is so the computer will make it a rich or lean mixture to start the engine,if it tells the computer that it is 75 degrees the computer will lean the mixture like starting a car in the winter without a choke.

2000 VW Beetle will not start in cold, runs fine above 40 degrees


I was just reading the owners manual for my 2000 beetle and it says the diesel fuel has a problem with the wax separating from it below 40 degrees. Put the car in a warm garage and it will start.
