Check your timing belt put no 1 cylnder at top dead center timing mark at 0 remove your distrebuter cap and see if the rotor is pointing at number 1 spark plug
if not replace that belt (replacement is at 60k I believe) sounds like the fix good luck CJ ps no. one on compression stroke

My daughter has a 2001 Kia Sephia that runs fine idling in park. When she shifts into gear, it sputters and stalls. What could be causing this?


I would clean the inside of the throttle body first. Back of the plate and where it seats. Doesn't clear up. Check compression next. It is a 2001.

Vacuum leak or timing check all vacume lines and air intake look for any cracks or hole in air intake after your air intake sensor map or maf whatever u have on a kia. Bad air leak can foul your plugs fast.

97 kia sephia, replaced battery, plugs, wires, cap, rotor, air filter, fuel filter, added heet water removal and lucas fuel injector. It sputters, backfires/pops when accelerating and it has no power,...


As you have replaced all the obvious things that could cause the symptoms it may be a good idea to have a cylinder compression test done , if comes back OK i'd try a fuel addative , one that covers the catalytic convertor , as there are many sensor's involved in the fuel/exhaust system as you know , this addative will clean any residue affecting there reading's , hope this helps
