Kia take more than one O2 sensor, and they are probably original equipment, so start there. Also, replace plug wires. There is also a fuel filter that is the old style filter, needs replaced too. This sounds like all it needs to me is some TLC!!! O2 sensors are going to be $130.00 or less. Plug wires are $30.00. Filter-$10.00. Not too bad a price to get your performance and economy back!!

You need to find out the error codes being generated when the light came on. These codes will stay in memory until being reset by a code reader. The reader plugs into the OBD II port under the dash, near the steering wheel. (OBD stands for On Board Diagnostics). You can buy or rent these readers for not to much money now a days. Costco has a basic one for about $40. http://www.kiatechinfo.com/index.asp This is Kia's tech website. You, or anybody else, can register there and get loads of information about your car, including what the error codes mean, for free. Good luck!

I would suggest that you take it to another shop and have the system checked by a technician.A good pad to install is wagner thermo quiet brake pads and have them check the thickness of the rotors also.A good technician will check your complete braking system to make sure there are no faulty parts.

Testing the coil packs is easily done - if you have the right tool & know how to use it.
You'll need an HEI (High Energy Ignition) tester kit, sold at any auto parts store, for about $30.
Harbor Freight Tools sells a basic kit for $16.

Simply place the tester on the spark plug, and plug the spark plug wire into the back of the tester.
Proceed to do this for each of the cylinders, checking each for (a) presence of spark, and
(b) intensity of spark, which should be equal across all cylinders.
The tester lights up each time a spark plug fires, and you use the tester by watching it as the engine runs.
This test is a good test to utilize for the coil packs once the spark plugs and spark plug wires are known to be good (the tester cannot differentiate between a bad spark plug wire, a bad spark plug, or a bad coil pack).
A really good indicator that a coil pack has gone bad/marginal is when the tester shows
weak spark going to both cylinders firing from the same coil pack (when compared to the
other cylinders).

Alternatively, Pep Boys/Advance Auto Parts/AutoZone offer diagnostic services that may include
ignition testing (I know that they do starting/charging system testing). According to www.advanceautoparts.com, they offer free "Electrical Testing" which includes battery, starter and alternator.

Also, Advance Auto Parts/AutoZone have an extensive "Loaner Tool" program, and you may be
able to borrow a HEI ignition tester kit (for a refundable deposit, of course) at your local store.

Another free helpful service at Pep Boys/Advance/AutoZone you may want to try is a free
"Check Engine" light service - a badly missing engine will be detected by the car's computer,
and since you car was manufactured after 1996, its computer port is OBD-II complaint.
Codes you may run into with a missing/misfiring engine:

P0300 - Random/Multiple Cylinder misfire detected
P0301 - Cylinder 1 misfire detected
P0302 - Cylinder 2 misfire detected
P0303 - Cylinder 3 misfire detected
P0304 - Cylinder 4 misfire detected
P0305 - Cylinder 5 misfire detected
P0306 - Cylinder 6 misfire detected
P0307 - Cylinder 7 misfire detected
P0308 - Cylinder 8 misfire detected
P0313 - Misfire detected with low fuel

After changing the coil pack and spark plug, why is it still skipping?


Timing could have jumped. Could be a bad head gasket also. even possible to be a small hole in piston check the cylinder for compression. Check the fuel injector to that cylinder if you have bad air to gas mixture it will throw a code of misfire change fuel filter check fuel injector to see if clogged. most likely it is the fuel injector .

Injectors, compression, several engine mechanical issues ( burnt valves, weak or broken valve springs, piston rings, head gaskets, cracked block or heads ) and bad ECM drivers for injectors/coil packs can all cause engine misfires. The flashing light means possible catalytic converter damage .

2 months ago i replaced all the spark plugs and coil packs on my 2003 mazda 6. yesterday my car started acting the same way as when i needed these things replaced and today the check engine light went on...


I don't know how many miles you have on your car, but it is possible that you may have a spark plug being fouled out either with oil or coolant. I had a Protege with 120k and it burned more oil than gas. Change #3 plug and get a good look at the plug you remove. Look for signs of contamination.

Malfunction indicator light


if you receive a code indicating ignitial coil c secondary circuit this means a plug wire that connects your ignition coil pack module to a spark plug in the motor has come loose OR has become worn out
(not likely on '05 odel) or one of the coil pack modules has gone bad. If you recently had muffler repair work done, then suspect a wire has come loose and attempt to remove and reconnect each wire to the coil pack. If not, I would recommend replacing the coil pack module that's easiest to get to and testing the vehicle after replacing it. If that doesn't do it you will have to keep replacing until it starts running properly or you will need a shop manual to indicate which one is "COIL C". It's not very likely that a wire will be worn out based on the age of your vehicle, but heat from a motor will destroy a coil pack over a matter of several years especially if the coil pack is near an exhaust pipe or exhaust manifold.

It could be the temp sensor switch. Fuel injected engines (most GM models) use the temp sensor as the choke sensor as well. I had a Buick that did the same thing and replaced temp sensor and worked fine thereafter.

Navajo seems to be straining under load, and the engine sounds "out of whack" on an older car I would have thought the distributor cap was slightly off line... Could it be something like this? Feels...


Hi this sounds like the fuel filter, They start showing signs underload while driving, Also bad plug wires and plugs will show signs underload, and you have a coil pack on that one? I have change many coil packs due to one cyl being week , you can pull the plug wires off the coil pack one at a time while it is running check to see that they all have great spark make sure you dont have a week one. that should give you a starting place also you can check the temp of the inlet and outlet on the cat see if it is greater than 100 diff cats can cause this but it is what made the cat go bad which is usually a tune up issue that made it go bad.
