Question about 2002 Kia Rio
Have done lots of checks new plugs, wires, listen for injectors with stephascope, seem to have spark but no fuel to those cyl. can low fuel press. cause this how do you check the press. i have a gauge but there is no port to put it on. so not sure about regulator or fuel pump, can the injectors click but not pump fuel?
An injector can pulse without spraying fuel. They can get plugged or get build up on the nozzle and squirt fuel instead of spraying or not spray at all.. Your fuel rail is common rail, so your fuel line should go through a pressure regulator and then to a rail that dispenses the fuel equally. I have heard of cases where kia replaced the fuel rail to solve this problem. All the injectors will get the same amount of fuel pressure with this system, so if you have injector pulse and no missfires on #2 and #4, i would suspect clogged injectors. You can have an injector flush performed, which is probably not a bad ideal any way, to see if you can clean them up, or just replace the bad injectors. You can also inspect them visually to see if there is any debris on the nozzles. I wouldn't recomend that to an inexperienced person. Fuel can be very dangerous. I have head of techs removing the injector from the rail and running the car and watching the injector spray the fuel. Not recommended at all. All it takes is one spark or hot surface. Do a fuel injection clean, or buy some BG brand 44k fuel treatment and put in the tank first, the fill it up with gas. You can remove the injector and soak it in injector cleaner also to help free it up. If any of these don't help, time to take it in...they are also experiencing ECU problems..
