Re: ck engine light
The On-Board Diagnostic (OBD) computer on the 2003 Camry is a second generation (or OBD-2) and is far more advanced that its predecessor. You could purchase an OBD-2 code reader for anywhere between $69 and $159, but considering that you may never have need for it again, I would sugggest just going to Advance Auto, Auto Zone, Pep Boys, O'Reily or other store, and have them run a free diagnostic (they want to sell you the replacement parts). The printout will tell you exactly what is wrong.

Engine light is normally emisions related. I would check intake tube for splits & clamp tightness, check for vacume leaks, check oxygen sensors & airflow or map sensor. these all change the air / fuel ratio possibly to the point of stalling
it sounds like a lambda sensor issue, the lambda sensor is located on the exhaust manifold, it controls the emisions, it also controls the air/fuel mixture to control the emisions, if it is faulty it could cause the engine to surge like you describe
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 on when the computer detects a malfunction in the emision control system, could be a loose or broken vacumm line, loose gas cap or a sensor.
Drive your vehicle to an AutoZone store, ask them to retreive the trouble codes from your computer memory, they will do that and a print out of the codes and their meaning. This a free service they provide for their customers.
first and formost you absolutely must have a Honda o.e.m gas cap installed!!!!! second when installing cap make sure you tighten three full turns past snug(3 ratchet sounds)third depending on milage this car should still be under 8yr80kmile emmisions warranty so double check,repairs will be under hondas wing if it is.
