Question about Kia Cars & Trucks
My 2002 Kia Sedona has a few problems. The first one is that it will start in the morning after sitting for the evening and then cut off when I put it in reverse/drive, etc. I then try this about twice/three times with it cutting off and then finally it will allow me to drive/reverse, etc without cutting off. The second problem is that when I'm stopped at a light, the car will **** consecutively. It doesn't do it all the time but one out of five/six lights it will start doing this jerking motion. The third problem is when I have driven the car for about 30 minutes and then I get to my destination and shut it off. If I try to restart the car again, the car will not start and it makes the sound as if it wants to start but it can't catch. I've taken it to a mechanic and he doesn't know whats wrong with it...is there anyone out there can give me any clue on what's going on?
Sounds like bad torque converter-its part of the trans-hav it test driven by a trans guy---------the computer cud be worn tu--unplug it or disconnect batt--it may reboot----car may need ignition tuneup or fuel system inspect------get vehicle scanned for any hidden codes----check out the haynes manuals for ur model at a partstore and dont bringit to a dealer

I would hazard to say that you probably have a dirty/bad air flow sensor or a vacuum leak if the air filter is new. The other possibility is a fuel pressure problem related to a dirty fuel filter or failing fuel pump. I'm not familiar with the Kia engine management system, but this would be the most likely causes. A pressure check of the fuel system would tell you what is the problem. I would take the vehicle to another mechanic, one that does not rely on reading the ODBII as the only diagnosis tool. Call several and ask them what they think. If they don't tell you what I say, go down the list. Any decent mechanic should conclude that one of the three parts of the system is faulty. I named off 2 of the 3. If the third leg of the system (fire/spark) is at fault then that could get very expensive. I would start with the Mass air flow meter and possibility the throttle position sensor since your year model would not have a throttle by wire system.
