Have an obd11 scan run on it and then you will know where to start.the problems on the newer vehicules are normally do to faulty sensors and there are quite a few so go this route and save yourself time and money.you can buy a obd11 scanner for anywhere from 100$ and up if you would like to perform the repairs yourself.

2003 Kia Sedona what is the RPM supposed to idle aton cold start an in warm weather


Idle speed depends on a number of factors; for instance it may idle faster when the air conditioner is on. Instead of a fixed idle speed, as in the old cars, the engine computer sets the speed to whatever is needed to run any accessories and maintain smooth operation, but generally not more than that. That's under normal circumstances. There are several failure modes that cause erratic idle speed; usually the engine will also run roughly.

7.5 l engine. Starts well but idles a bit roughly. Check engine light illuminates intermittently but does not stay lit constantly. Thanks!


If you have a check engine light the best thing is to read the codes and find out what the problem is. Many shops like Aamco read codes free.

Very rough idle and low rpm and flashing service engine light.


Don't think it's major could be any number of sensors. Any autozone will run a free scan and point you in the right direction.

I have 2002 audit quattro TT with 180k miles. When I do a normal acceleration the car surges and rpm drop but pick back up. If I accel hard it runs fine. Also at idle at times it varies 200 rpm like a


this sounds similar to a problem i had. as the rpm went over 2000 the engine would stop for a split second and then kick back in.
after a few days looking my garage finally found the problem was a faulty air mass meter.
this cost me £200 in total to be repaired.

2003 Tiburon GT, RPM's drop way down and idles rough at stop's?


More maintenance history needed. Oil changed regularly, timing belt replaced at 60 K miles, Engine air filter & intake air hose inspection?
Causes of the problem you describe are many. Recommend you have a technician check your throttle position sensor for any bad spots in the potentiometer... most likely cause when there is NO Check Engine light.
