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.

Think this engine has had its day,could be a hydraulic valve adjuster ,well the noise anyway but as for the rough idle i have no idea without my head inside the engine compartment
Could even be a piston who knows as these type of cars do get well thrashed about by budding F1 drivers ,if you can video it and post the video then i might have a better idea failing which ask a local mechanic to have a look for you

Knock sensor


Have a competent mechanic retrieve stored DTC data to find the real problem. Otherwise, you'll just be replacing parts at random.

Kia Rio died in traffic. Will not start.


Hello Kia Owner,
Regarding the shut down, when was the last time you changed the timing belt?? Did you know that the twin cam 1.5 lirte motor needs a new belt every 50,000 miles or 80,000 kms.
If the belt has failed it may still be in tact but with the cogs ripped off.
Your valves have collided with at least one piston but it is good you were only idling at the time.
The motor may be worth fixing. I just fixed mine myself. I had to lift the engine after removing the axles. I removed the old timing belt and removed and rebuilt the cylinder head(big job). Two exhaust valves were boken right off and lying inside one cylinder.
Most likely your timing belt failed as well.
