Question about 1995 Kia Sephia

My 1995 Kia Sephia accelerates and shuts down

My 1995 Kia Sephia starts accelerating as soon as it warms up and then it shuts down. The radio and lights work, so I know it's not the battery. Replaced the fuel pump, did a tune up and still does the same thing.

    A little more detail... The check engine light was on about a month ago but it went away as soon as my boyfriend did the tune up and hasn't returned but the problem remained.

Check to make sure that your mass air flow sensor is working properly and your clean air supply to the throdle body is all connected and functioning. allong with the sensors connected to that. it sounds like your cars mas air flow sensor is giving an incorrect high reading to your ecu...so your car thinks it is taking in more air than it is... the fuel injectors are trying to compensate for the high air flow but because that air flow does not exist the car stalls.

Thank you for help my kia sephia 1995 problem is that the engine speed decrease when start the AC knowing that the engine idle speed is 850 rpm.


Hi, Check the a/c diaphragm idle up! Must be the vacuum line is disconnected or there is a leak in the hose, and the diaphragm itself is not working anymore! Maybe needs adjustment!
hope that helps u out!

My 2001 Kia Sephia suddenly won't start.


even if your starter is out it would still click when you tried starting the car. so try replacing your battery first thats the most common problem for random starting. also look under the car you may need to jack it up. look under the intake manifold that is where the starter is check to see that everything is hooked correctly and that all the bolts are tightend securley and not loose on one side.

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.

Check the fuel system. Cheap first....fuel filter. Then the fuel pump. The engine does actually turn over, but it just won't start...correct?
