Check engine light on after installed salvage transmition
My 2002 Kia spectra had a salvage tranny put in it and the check engine light is on. My mechanic said that the code was from the transmition and not the engine (after he replaced an engine sensor and the "brain" pcm). Now the car won't pass inspection with the check engine light on. Any suggestions how to get it off? My mechanic speculated that the new transmition and it's brain are not getting along with the car - electrically that is.

CarGurusNov 15, 2012 - The engine just fall dead when you step on the gas; it seems to jerk before ... My car does the same thing but i put it in neutral n it starts up. ... I have a 2004 kia optima it jerks when I go into reverse it was driving ... start and run fine butwhen I put it in drive or any other gear it dies! ... 2002 Hyundai Elantra GT.
All I could find on the net as to why it may still come on is 1.It needs a slight adjustment 2.The electrical connector needs to be put on.Since you most likely put on the connector,it may just need slight adjustment.Isn't technology wonderful these days?What would Henry Ford think?lol.Here is what I found but no help really. http://www.autozmagz.com/search/kia+spectra+throttle+position+sensor+location
Well I googled adjust tps sensor on 2002 Kia and got nowhere.If you call a dealer,they would probably tell you how to adjust for free.If they don't,call other shops.SOMEONE is always willing to give you free advice because they want you to come back.Good luck!
check engine light comes of when the computer gets a sensor reading out of range. This could be an oxygen sensor(most likely) which will reduce performance of the engineand cause jerking. Most auto parts stores-autozone,advanced auto or O'rieley-will scan computer and tell you which sensor triggered check engine light. good luck
If you want the check engine light goes
off one of the cables from the battery but not the best solution is to
make a diagnosis with a scanner and you'll realize that you have
registered code because if you turn out the light by disconnecting the
battery and does not resolve the problem the
light will turn on again ...... Thanks
