Question about 2001 Kia Sephia

1 Answer

Kia Sephia 2001

1) When shift or sometimes just driving a regular speed, the car shakes and chugs. It's a standard. The check engine light will come on a lot. What's all that mean?

2) Also when I turn the wheel, no matter the speed, it gets a clanking noise. What is that?

3) And lastly, when driving, a clacking noise will start up in my front drivers side of the car, but it will stop when i tap on the brakes. What is that?

    At first the check engine light was not on until the car started to shake, but now is on when you turn car on.

I have a Kia Sephia (2001) and it keeps stalling each time I drive over a bump or at the traffic light or make a left or right turn. All spark plugs have been changed and the car has been serviced on a ...


it sounds like a fuel problem. i believe its fuel injected so check the fuel pressure regulator and mainly the pump. the pump tends to go first but if you do change the pump change the filter also. have your local mechanic check the fuel lines.

Car Shakes a Chugs.


Have your check engine light scanned. Autozone will do it for free. Even if the engine light isn't actively on, it will tell you which codes have been triggered since the last clearing. Following your description, I would suspect damage to your exhaust is damaged. Most likely it is your catalytic converter. They are somewhat fragile due to their design and if you had it high centered on it, the honeycomb may have broken inside it. Just a guess, I'd say a replacement would cost you around $300-$500 installed.

Check engine light on and O/D OFF light flashing


I was facing a similar problem when I bought my car, I think the "check engine" lit due to a problem with shifting control system which obviously made the "O/D-off" flashes.The best solution in this case is to replace the malfunctioning shifting control system (a closed steel box that works like a computer).This is what I did and since then it's running perfectly.

Check the fuel system. Cheap first....fuel filter. Then the fuel pump. The engine does actually turn over, but it just won't start...correct?
