Check with the place that checked the codes for you. Maybe they can test the IG sensor for you. That might help. Otherwise check all the connections relating to the sensor.

2003 Kia Spectra acceleration does not work when I step on the gas I have to allow my speed to slowly build up to reach a top speed of 45 mph and if when going up hill or trying stepping on the accelerator...

If the check engine light is on then pull the code.

Use a bottle of yellow HEET dry gas to remove moisture in fuel.

Remove air filter and remove any debris from bottom of air filter box.

With a helper inside the care,check for smooth accelerator operation. The throttle unit can get moisture inside the unit.

Major transmission problem. That's what the flashing Check Engine light means.

If the Check Engine light is on all the time, it means there is a "fault code" stored in the computer. Take it to an auto parts store (like Auto Zone) and ask them to read the codes to see what it says. They should do it for free. If they won't, go to another auto parts store.

Kia 2003 optima

The engine and transmission in this cars drive train are fully electronically controlled by a computer called the PCM (Power Train Control Module). Whenever a problem like this occurs the computer stores a record of the problem (there are of course some exceptions to this, like the fuel pump, engine coolant temperature sensor and MAF sensor for instance) in the form of a fault code in its memory, to read these fault codes you must have the systems memory scanned with a special tool. Once the fault code(s) are read you then must perform the appropriate diagnostic testing to find and resolve the problem(s) DO NOT REPLACE ANY PARTS UNTIL A TRAINED TECHNICAIN HAS DIAGNOSED THE PROBLEM TO AVOID SPEDING YOUR HARD EARNED MONEY ON PARTS THAT MAY NOT CORRECT THE PROBLEM

I want to flush the coolant on a 2003 Kia Optima 2.4 liter Auto with A/C. How much antifreeze should I buy to mix with water? What is the total coolant capacity?

Coolant capacity is 7.7 qts./7.3 liters, for a 2.4 liter 2003 Kia Optima.
You will not be able to get all the coolant out of the engine, unless you do a thorough engine drain and flush. If you only plan on draining the radiator, you will need less than 2 gallons mixed total to refill it, since some coolant will remain in the engine block and heater core.

My 2004 kia optima lx 4cly. is stuttering at 40 mph. yesterday It jerked so hard I thought the transmission was going to fall out... Any advice?

If the check engine light is on, have it scanned to determine what is causing the problem...If it's a transmission problem, it will also need to be diagnosed with testing equipment.

2005 Kia Optima auto trans problem

I had the same problem... just got my car services and took car to transmission spec. they told me that its the pump inside the tranny thats broken or something. while the pump is working >ie under acceleration it blows fluid out the seal (which seal im unsure) once the fluid level drops below the seal level it wont blow as much fluid out. if you check the levels you should notice that the fluid is well under level. Major job because you need to remove the transmission to get to the problem If that isnt the problem another issue could be a seal on the left or right driveshaft.This isnt as major as the other because you wont need to remove the transmission but time is required to remove the driveshafts to replace the seals. The first problem cost me about $600AU
