Question about Kia Cars & Trucks
Tried all suggested fixes to no avail, took it down to service centre to have a diagnostic check, and appears brake light switch is faulty??
The switch also controls cruise control and cuts the acceleration so your cannot drive with foot on the brake and rev at same time.
so faulty brake switch was sending faulty message to CPU and stopping engine from accelerating after start. So there we have it, computer controlled cars.... Thx to all suggestions.

SOURCE: stalls and wont idle when cold
Re the trooper. You have a couple of possibles. The most likely is the glowplugs or glowplug relay. Don't be fooled into thinking glow plugs only heat to start - the also do whats called postheat. That is to raise the cylinder temp until the block is warm. IF they are not functioning (clip a light onto one whilst switching the glowplug on to test the relay) this is common.
Most likely is a stuck EGR valve - stuck open so running a very lean mix when cold. Its two bolts on the inlet manifold, pulls out and looks covered in soot - it should push in and spring out. Can be cleaned in petrol or alcohol or with compressed air.
More remote is possible you have a faulty injector...only really testable by an engine centre...

SOURCE: idle problem
Try to disconnect the Air Flow Meter. It is the first plug just before the air filter/air intake box. If this improves your situation you will need to source a new or aftermarket Air Flow Meter.

That is normal. As you accelerate and rpm's increase the oil pump rpm increases. I think the oil pump runs 1 to 1 or 2 to 1 with the crankshaft rpm. Check the oil and inspect for any visual leaks if the gauge does not operate like that consistently. If it is intermittent or it just started acting that way, the sender my be bad. Other than that any Chevy Dealer will say that is normal.

sorry but you have tried everything i would have done except that i would have checked the engine breather pipes for deterioation like perished or soft and collapsing .you would be surprised how often this is the main cause of this sort of problem
