Question about Cars & Trucks
Hi, i seem to have a problem with my kia optima manual gear, petrol, 4 cylinder 2004 model. of recent the car has been jerking / hesitating. I noticed that it seemed to happen more frequently if i am turning. i dont know if turning can trigger such a response? i have changed the 4 spark plugs, also changed 2 leaking plug cables, changed the sensor that is on the top cylinder, i have also washed my fuel tank and tested the pressure of my fuel pump and they say its ok. We have also checked my electrical system and everything seems to be ok. after the above items were done the car seemed to get better and the jerking seemed to stop for a day and then it returned, although it is not as bad as before.
Your problem must be your connection of the wire try to fix them all.

SOURCE: hesitation problem
Change fuel filter, and or plugs and plug wires. Also, if the timing mark is hopping back and forth when you shoot your light at it, the timing chain ahs jumped.

Start car and use a squirt bottle of water to wet the wires and coil, if you see it spark or run rough one or both are bad, repair the wires first as they are more common.
