Hi:
Your vehicle symtoms indicate that you might have a timing issue . It could be caused by a vacuum leak, or even the egr valve , since it only happens under load.

Do you ever get a check engine light? If so, scanning the vehicle would give some clues to the cause too.
If not, I would first look over all accessable hoses for cracks or loose connections, and then have the engine timing checked. Hopefully you will work towards a good fix.

Today I was driving my car and out of nowhere I instantly lost power, it began to sputter and shake semi-violently. It shook a little harder at lower rpms but still did it at high ones. I took the car home...


Could be a Mass Air Flow sensor going bad, or it could be a computer that isn't firing all of the fuel injectors when needed.

Test the Mass Air Flow sensor by idling the car, in Park, and hitting the intake tube that has the Mass Air Flow sensor integrated into it. If the car stalls, you found the problem, the MAF sensor.

Good luck on this repair.

My Kia backfires, sputters, bucks while this is going on the exhaust fumes are horrible. When starting my Kia at times it starts easily other times it starts, dies, starts dies when it does start a hold...


Did a little research, sounds like the hold light is linked to the transmission, used when needing higher rpms like when towing up long steep hills. The back fire and bad smell could be two things, either insufficient fuel, or bad spark. The spark plugs and wires need to be checked, and also the fuel pressure and flow rate. Is it back firing from under the hood or behind the car?

It just stoped running


Depending on how much gas was in the tank and how steep the hill was, the fuel pump most likely started pumping air instead of gas, thereby stalling the engine.
