Check to make sure it is not misfiring. A misfire can make the engine vibrate too much when in gear or not in gear,Then check or replace ALL your motor mounts and transmission mount, there are 3 to replace. Make sure to replace them Kia brand mounts because after market ones will not help much !

You will need to contact the dealer. Radio codes are only supplied thru the dealer or you can search online for places that sell the code.

Chances are you will need to pay for the code or replace the radio with one that is an upgrade with no code needed.

SOURCE: My '99 kia sephia overheated, shut off, now wont start

You refilled the water so where did the water you lost go? I suspect it is in the engine combustion chamber. You need to see if you have a blown head gasket and to see why it overheated before trying to start it. Remove all spark plugs and turn if over. If coolant blows out of the cylinders you have a blown head gasket.

2001 kia sephia if the knock sensor is bad will it make the engine tap ?


It sounds like valve clatter. If you are also noticing black smoke from the exhaust, diminished engine response, etc then it has a faulty valve. I have to be honest. The Kia you have is not known as a good car. It was made before Hyundai took over for quality control. I would seriously consider selling the car while it still runs. I am sorry for this answer, but I own a 2012 Kia Optima and have heard service writer horror stories on the Sephia. Again, I apologize for my recommendation.

OIL DIPSTICK SMELLS LIKE GAS


If you smell gas in your engine oil, it can be a sign of a number of problems.The problem can be caused by cold weather preventing the excess fuel to not be burned.Engine problems will need to be diagnosed by a mechanic. The one quick fix you can do until then when you smell gas in your engine oil is to change the oil right away.
