maybe your fuel pump stop working or a blown fuse for the fuel pump or ignition coil. First checked for blown fuses

The clicking sound is either coming from the starter relay or the starter solenoid switch.If the starter makes no click then it has to come off and get new brusjhes put in it or have the solenoid replaced.You can check it by jumping the post with the battery cable fastened to it to the smaller post with the small wire on it either with a small screwdriver or a piece of wire.If it goes then,then you need the relay,if it does nothing then you need to fix the starter.

youre going to torque it to 65 ft lbs.. start from the centre out and go diagonally. be sure to replace the head bolts and very lightly oil them before installation.

Hello Kia Owner,
Regarding the shut down, when was the last time you changed the timing belt?? Did you know that the twin cam 1.5 lirte motor needs a new belt every 50,000 miles or 80,000 kms.
If the belt has failed it may still be in tact but with the cogs ripped off.
Your valves have collided with at least one piston but it is good you were only idling at the time.
The motor may be worth fixing. I just fixed mine myself. I had to lift the engine after removing the axles. I removed the old timing belt and removed and rebuilt the cylinder head(big job). Two exhaust valves were boken right off and lying inside one cylinder.
Most likely your timing belt failed as well.
