  • Doug Warne Your kia here is what i would do to help diagnosisMar 19, 2014

  • Doug Warne First of all i would do these steps"
    Mar 19, 2014

  • Doug Warne how does it run when cold how does it run when hot
    Mar 19, 2014

  • Doug Warne i would look for Vacuum Leaks
    Mar 19, 2014

  • Doug Warne i would remove the spark plugs check engine compression hope to see about 180 psi on each cylinder
    Mar 19, 2014

  • Doug Warne i would exam each spark plugs to see if fowled with Gasoline or carbon keep spark plug with each cylinder because low compression will cause this
    Mar 19, 2014

  • Doug Warne low compression i would exam cooling systemicon1.pngfor airbubles or coolant in engine oil
    Mar 19, 2014

  • Doug Warne if oil looks milky white in color its coolant do not operate vehicle
    Mar 19, 2014

  • Doug Warne change head gasket get head kit with valve cover and take head to machine shop to have shaved straight and checked for cracks Replace head with Remanufactured if warrpiage to great or stress cracks
    Mar 19, 2014

  • Doug Warne check air filter and breather to insure the intake is getting air before you do compression test
    Mar 19, 2014

  • Doug Warne if engine dies when hot lets look at the fuel pump pressure
    Mar 19, 2014

  • Doug Warne lets take and look at the fuel cap where you put your fuel in make sure the vent is open which allow outside air pressure becuase you can have a 100 billion gallon second pump but if there is no air coming into take the pump will pump 0
    Mar 19, 2014

  • Doug Warne Check your OBD 2 codes First this will give you ideas of what happening ie bad oxgen sensor telling me look for vacuum leak or poor spark ignition or poor engine compression, possible injector leaking
    Mar 19, 2014

  • Doug Warne poor compression tell me the engine maybe out of timing and or valves or worn or burnt exspecially when engine is hot and it dies
    Mar 19, 2014

  • Doug Warne a cylinder leak down test would be revealing for valves or piston rings
    Mar 19, 2014

  • Doug Warne if engine has good Intake of Air and gas mixture and then good compression of air and gas mixture and good spark from the Ignition and good flowing exhaust the engine will operated smoothly
    Mar 19, 2014

  • Doug Warne if engine looses power or stalls when hot take a look at the catyalitic converters to see if glowing red or hot one side and cooler on rear side also check the exahust pessure at tail pipe to see if cats are plugged if you have little exhaust pressure and no exhaust leaks
    Mar 19, 2014

  • Doug Warne i hope this helps and i always kiss the job.............

  • Doug Warne Keep IT Simple Stupid
    Mar 19, 2014

  • Doug Warne i hope this helps
    Mar 19, 2014

  • Doug Warne as far as the thermostat is the engine running hot..????
    Mar 19, 2014

  • Doug Warne CHECK FOR AIR BUBBLES IN COOLANT as piston compress air if it leaking pass the headgasket seal into the coolant jacket this will cause air bubbles and you may loose heat out of the heater core...i have seen this with cracked heads also so if this is the case have head checked at machine shop
    Mar 19, 2014

  • Doug Warne check the oil from the dip stick smell it see if you smell gasoline this is telling me thin oil, possible injector leaking gasoline
    Mar 19, 2014

  • Doug Warne Low engine Compression with satuerate oil the oil ring on the piston will have hard time to create seal to cylinder wall there fore low compression exspecially when engine is hot
    Mar 19, 2014

  • Doug Warne get a spray bottle fill with water and with engine runing spray water in coil packs and spark plugs wires to see if there cracked or frayed Electricty is lazy it will use the water as a ciricut and go to ground through the water this is telling me cracked coil pack or plug wires engine will began to miss and fumble while running
    Mar 19, 2014

  • Doug Warne these are some tricks i use to help diagnosis problems....hope this helps
    Mar 19, 2014

  • Doug Warne As far as the A/c Heater Blower i would first check the Fuse in the box with a test light, and i would check all the fuses remember you have a battery side and ignition side of the fuse box if the fuse is blow replace with manufacture Amp Fuse and if new fuse shorts then i would look at blower motor draw
    Mar 20, 2014

  • Doug Warne Check your battery Cold Crank Amps with a load test meter most parts store will do for free hoping you will buy a battery and if batter test not good if you choose to not to replace your alternator will be charging constentently and the trio diode board in your regulator located inside the alternator in most applications these days will short then this will cause a battery high amp draw so your battery wont start in the am when your late for work..
    Mar 20, 2014

  • Doug Warne If your battery is loosing charge overnight or anytime you can simply take your negaitive Cable from your batter and put a test light from the negiative cable then touch your neg. terminal and if test light illuminates you have a draw and bad draw so take amp meter and test to see the draw in amps if high amp draw i would first look at the regulator and remove the 12volt singe wire and see if draw disappear if draw is no longer then 99 percent your regulator has shorted

Fuse to gages blow when turning on ignition, tracked it down to a 14 pin plug just above the brake buster, if unplugged it wont blow, if you could help narrow it down id be greatfull thanks Doug L


There is obviously a short in one of those wires on the OTHER side of the socket. You may want to get yourself a Haynes Manual and check out the wiring. All of the diagrams are in that book. Good Luck.

Not very technical at the moment, but I can tell it's in the fuel sensor system, not fuel delivery. Check the Mass Airflow Sensor, and related sensors.

1999 galant doesn't get fuel


Fuel filter may be plugged. You need to confirm you have fuel pressure, unfortunately most people don't have a fuel pressure tester around the garage. Is it real cold where you are, if so, perhaps some gasline antifreeze may help.

Won't start.


Doug,
The first place I would start is listen and see if you hear the fuel pump come on. when you turn the key on you should hear it come on for about 2 second. There is a fuel pump relay and it should be located Under hood, passenger side, rear engine area, relay mounted on upper firewall also the a red wire on the wiring harness that has a connector on it. This wire comes form the relay, if you put a test light on that lead, hook to a good ground, it should turn the test light on when you turn the key on, if you have power going to the pump. It is possible that the pump itself has gone bad or is stuck and will not pump, you may try hitting the tank with you hand, sometimes this will knock it loose but I would replace the pump if this works or it will do it again.
