The first thing i would do is to have the fuel preasure checked, low fuel preasure will cause this, next i would have the computer scanned for any stored codes, when the engine is not running right the computer stores codes to and sometimes turns on the check engine light, these codes will help in pin pointing the problem, auto zone auto parts store scans for no fee, so start with these tests.

Engine cuts in and out


Hello, I would suggest looking at the fuel pressure on your fuel rail to check if the fuel pump is working properly. Sounds like a bad fuel pump. Also check your fuel pressure regulator.

Car doesn't seem to get enough gas to engine


Have you done a tune lately on the car?
I would also suspect a fuel pump problem is you've done a tune up recently.

When cranking, if i don't apply gas pedal its as though there is no gas


Fuel pump is going or the pressure regulator is shot.Or injector problems.

Starts but after of running a while will not restart the more i prime the pump it starts and runs nothing else wrong with it


There is no priming of anything

If your talking cycling the key to start the
fuel pump,then maybe the fuel pump
is worn & not building pressure, to always
start the car quickly

The TPS Sensor moves a you push the gas
pedal. It may be worn

There is no corrolation to your foot & fuel issues

It starts and idles, but if the gas pedal suddenly push to full throdle the engine dies, and when it is put into gear the engine dies


sounds like a fuel feed problem check your fuel pump and your fuel lines.best way is to connect a line from a gas can directly to the fuel pump and put the line from your tank into the can to prevent spillage.then try to start and throttle engine. if it dies that means there could be an in line filter or the pump is bad.if it works then run the hose from the tank to the pump if it doesnt work then its the pump and filter in the tank. if it works then clean the lines between the tank and the pump or engine.

2002 kia spectra has hard time picking up speed


I had the same problem. I changed my fuel filter too.Your catalytic converter is clogged. I could put the pedal to the floor board and couldnt hardly pick up any speed. I could hardly make up a hill on the highway. Take it to a kia dealership and they will, they should replace it for free, they did mine and I didnt have a warranty. I think there is a warranty on that specific part. That's what it is though.

72000 miles and only replace fuel pump? Never a tune up? If so, it just might be as simple as that....
