Check engine light stays on while driving

I bought car (Kia SII98A sedan) yesterday and while driving home the check engine light came on. I pulled over to a servo checked oil water transmittion etc-all good. Started on my way again then 2 minutes into the trip it came back on. Is this an expensive fix? And do you have any suggestions?
Cheers Liz

    This si a new car that I just brought and today the check engine light came on for the first time. I checked the transmission fluid, oil, and everything is fine. What else could be the cause of this?

Normal 0 Buy your own code-reader, and take it with you when you lookat used cars. A good code reader will tell you if the previous owner justreset the code so the light would be off when you test-drove the vehicle. Sounds like you were taken advantage of by an unscrupulous seller.

    One of the most common causes of a MIL light coming on is a loose or leaking GAS CAP. Yep, sounds stupid, but it happens all the time. Make sure the cap is tight! Let it click when you tighten it.

Code P200A kia sorento 2011


It's a fault code connected with the intake manifold.

However, before you rush off and change it, have a look on the Internet. It seems that Kia had problems with this particular error code/or the software. Read about it first. Here's some links:

The warning light means the engine oil pressure is low, not necessarily that the oil level is low.
The problem could be the pressure switch, or you really could have low oil pressure.
Driving the car with low oil pressure will damage the engine.

Could be a number of things. A common problem is the O2 sensors. Shoot down to your local Autozone or Pep Boys and have them pull eror codes out of the system. That will tell you where to start looking

Check engine light on


I had the same problem. I went to the kia dealer and they checked the code that caused the light to be on and found I had a leak in the gas cap. They replaced the gas cap and the problem went away. You night need to find out what made the check engine light go on in the first place.
