Did ya wash it right before this happened? If so the Computer is wet and/or the connector(s) to the computer are wet or moist.. Even if ya didnt wash it.. Locate the puter and investigate it.. it only takes a drop of moisture to ruin the continuity of the computer. As per Code 1631 indicates with us. To an average person with an OBD2 Scanner.. 1631 would mean the puter is fried.. but wha Ive seen is just wet/moist connections at the ECM (computer itself).. Hope this helps.. thank you

2011 KIA Sorrento 2.4 were is the fuel pressure regulator located. put on adjustable fuel reg .need to disconnect stock one


fuel pressure regulators are normally located in the fuel manifold. They are either vacuum controlled or electronic controlled to maintain the right fuel pressure for engine requirements and to shut off the fuel pump when the ignition is turned off
If your manually adjusted unit will not do all that then you are asking for fault codes to appear and all sorts of problems to occur

I have a 1998 kia sportage wil crank over and will not start. no spark.


Sounds like the coil or possibly the electronic ignition, replace coil as this is the cheaper option. Check to see if your Kia then starts if it does allow the engine to run until at operational tempreture then shut off the engine allow 5 mins then try to restart if your Kia if it starts again without straining or being boosted via jumper cables problem solved. If by any chance you do replace the coil & your Kia still will not start the electronic ignition is the next step & that can be done yourself as long as you have the required tools & knowledge, if not a trained professional will be able to replace the electronic ignition but this will be very costly if it is the electronic ignition.

I hope this helps.

2003 kia sorento wil turn over but won,t start. after a while it will start up. l can drive down the road and it will cut off. after awhile it will start back up l checked the code and wasn,t getting any...


This is almost for sure the fuel relay. I do not know where it is on your car but I would look for it to be by one of the back wheels where road junk can get to it and corrode it. Once found not very expensive and very easy to replace.

While driving my 2004 Kia Sorento the engine emissions light came on I pulled over and turned the car off tried to start again it turned over but wouldn't start after a few mins itried it again an


When the service engine soon light (Also called the check engine light or engine management light) is turned on this is to alert you to the fact that Powertrain Control Module (computer) has detected a failure somewhere in the systems it controls you may not feel any difference in the way the engine runs, this can be the transmission or the engine or emission system, there are fault codes set in the modules memory for these faults. What needs to happen now is to have the powertrain control module scanned with a special tool called an OBD2 electronic engine control scanner or a OBD2 code reader. Once the code(s) are read then you must perform the diagnostics for each code and make the appropriate repairs based on the findings of the diagnosis that was performed, this is called doing "Pinpoint" testing.

Will it hurt the 03 kia spectra to disconnect pos from the batt while running. I'm asking because i did and it still ran and while using a volt meter to see what my batt getting, my wife turns o


Yes it can hurt the electrical system if you disconnect the battery while the engine is running.
It can toast the diodes in the alternator and cook the computer along with other problems.
You'll need to check the fuses and the engine computer.
