Question about Kia Spectra

Open Question

2000 Kia Spectra

I have a 2000 Kia Spectra. The problem is when I accelerate the car chugs and the check engine light comes on. sometimes at idle it is very rough. When I read the code it is p301 misfire on cylinder one. I have changed the plugs, wires, injecter, and the catalytic converter. I dont know what else to change or where to go from here. I have a Kia Rio 02 and have changed the coil, plugs, and wires engine light stays off until it goes through the emissions dept then comes back on I dont know how to correct this once and for all.

What could be wrong with my Toyota Echo if the engine chugs while idling, and the car loses power when accelerating (stalling out if accelerating too quickly)?


There are numerous things that will cause this problem. If the check engine light is on, have the codes checked to see if there is a problem the computer has found to cause this issue. Even without the check engine light on, there may be a code stored. You can also do a visual inspection under the hood for any disconnected hoses causing vacuum leaks. These are the best places to begin with diagnostics

Chugging and wont accelerate


My first guess would be low fuel pressure or a faulty throttle position sensor. The faulty sensor should turn the check engine light on.
I would check those things first.

Check engine light came on, has trouble accelerating and while I'm idling it's jumps and sputters. This is the first real problem I've had with this car in three to four years.


could be the air flow meter. you'll see it after the air filter and it will have about 6 or 7 wires coming outa it. see if there pushed in if not den it might need replacement. only a guess now!!

Power loss / low idle speed


This could be a multitude of things but my first suggestion would be to change the spark plugs. They are cheap and can be bought at any auto parts store.
