Question about Kia Cars & Trucks

Open Question

I have a 2005 kia carnival, 2.5 v6 auto, petrol, just fitted a new engine and car starts but runs very rough on idle and same on accel and usually cuts out, if i disconnect the MAF sensor, i think thats what it is up at the airbox, it seems to run well but still breaks down when i drive it a little bit, i have checked all the vacume lines quite a few times and they all seem fine and have no brakes or leaks that i can see or hear, any help would be greatly app.

SOURCE: Fuel Filter location on a Petrol 2004 Kia Carnival

The fuel filter is located in the fuel tank, pump removal is required to replace. There is an inspection cover behind the front seats on the floor to gain access to the pump. stupid idea. but whats not stupid about kia.

SOURCE: 2002 kia sedona 3.5l has rough idle replaced plugs wires and coil

this vehicle has coil packs for the ignition correct? have you ran the engine at night with all surrounding lights outs so its really dark. spray a mist of water on the coil packs and spark plug wires to see if you have spark/voltage leaks jumping out from them. sometimes the tiny sparks will be so fine and skinny you can barely see them so it needs to be dark. hope this helps your trouble shooting. a coil pack could have such a fine crack for the voltage to leak from that you cant see it.

My 2005 kia optima LX ran out of gas and now it won't start, put gas and new battery but still won't start . please help


Paul is on the right ball - it sounds like fuel - turn over the engine with the pipe disconnected until the fuel comes through - if you don't succeed, consult a reputable shop - you need someone that knows what they are talking about to physically look at the car to solve the problem - this will save you a lot of time and expense. ?

Hi i want 2 buy a kia carnival and want 2 know whats the most common problem? i have seen a 2004 model lokks very clean but dont know much about these mpv..can anyone give me advise please?


Stay away from the Kia Carnival. I have discovered that all the Kias, regardless of age, have terrible over heating & engine problems, expensive to fix and unreliable.

The Carnival is a best seller in this market but it has suffered some noteworthy problems. A significant number needed new engines under warranty. They're far cheaper than most others but even so they're hard for me to recommend. Bear in mind the auto is far preferable to the manual. .

Runs & idles rough has no power when cold gets better when warm


Spluttering and missing is usually one of two things Fuel or spark ?
Fuel problems will be traced to 1/ in line fuel filters .. 2/ tank run low on petrol throwing dirt and grit into tank filter ( if Fitted ) and blocked or restricted injectors a good fuel additve sometimes cures that problem , but replacement is a far better option .
Poor spark plugs breaking down under preassure oiled plugs due to overfilling or incorrect fuel mixtures .. poor or cracked distributor caps dirty or damaged rotor arms in said cap .. leaking HT leads damaged by rubbing and contact with hot engine causing sparks to fly to nearest earth disrupting the spark and ignition timing ... hope this helps Regards vortash
