Question about 2001 Kia Sportage
Everyone in americia is searchin for a way to ride cooler
and here your looking for a way to run hotter
thats a first
what does your "mechanic" say was the fault codes in memory
after properly wiping memory for a fresh start
and a short drive ?
I thought it was only gm products that required a map sensor cal
but maybe kia does too
map= Manifold Absolute Pressure this little box measures the pressure in your
manifold the place where the air goes into cylinders when not properly calibrated
they lie to the eec and it adds too much fuel and richen up the gas the injectors shoot into cylinders
and drive down cylinder temps and you fail the smog test too much Hydrocarbons (gas)
but usually the O2 sensor in tailpipe will counter this I wonder why not in this case ?
