Had a problem with my daughters Kia Rio, it would tend to loose power and would not accelerate easily, tried everything and it turned out to be the feed cables for the fuel injection which run at the rear of the engine along the baulkhead, which were streched ..Had to rewire .

3 possible problems your mass are flow meter/senso could be going bad but not bad enough to register a fault, the same for your idle air valve and also your throttle position sensor. all 3 of these are on your throttle body .
with the engine running tap the side of the mass air flow with the back of a screw driver, if the engine sputers mass air flow needs replaced.you can try cleaning it with some mass air flow cleaner if you cant find that at your auto parts store get some electrical parts wash. your idle air valve needs to be cleaned or replaced there hard to get off. your throttle position sensor , you need to know the setting ,if the auto parts store cant give you aprint out of instuctions best to let a kia dealership do it and pay out the ****.

Huh? Doesn't it start out from a stop in first gear? Flush what, what belts?

When you press the gas pedal all the way down, does the engine speed up quite a bit, or stay at a very low RPM?

Does the engine miss? When did you last do a tune up? How many miles on the van? How does it run once you have reached high speeds? Any other symptoms?

Not much information for us to go on.

Hesitates upon acceleration & will not maintain a steady speed


i had found a problem with a kia rio. it was saying tps sensor but after a couple of hours and alot of cursing it turned out to be the maf mass air flow sensor. these are expensive so i suggest that you take it to a kia dealer to have it tested or find someone who can do it for alot cheaper
