Engine revs on its own, like? it revs up & down, up & down, if so, it is your Idle Air Control Valve (IAC Valve)

Question: does the sign IMMO (yellow) light disappear after some seconds of ignition turned on? If not you may have to close your car with your keys, than open them with the keys, than start your engine.
Should work if you are experiencing the above problem... Just an idea.

Car will not start


Do you have access to an OBD II diagnostic tool that reads data? I'm interested as to what the TPS, and coolant sensors are reading when the car DOESN'T start.

Hi I have Kia sorento 2003 and my trouble is idle go up to 3000rpm to shift from 1 to 2 and the idel some time no stable go at round 200to 500 rpm with OBD 2 code P1330. your help will be appreciated...


Dear Allamid,

Seems to me like you need angine diagnostics performed. Your idle speed is way to high here. Mapping the engine should pinpoint and solve the problem. This is typic\lly done by nothing more than plugging a laptop into the onboard computer that governs the engine.

By the sounds of the OBD code that you have, you already knew thisabove procedure.Even so, have the Engine management unit checked, and get someone to check thermostat,engine timing,and might be worth having a full service done.

If you still dont get anywhere with this,get in touch with me andI will investigate the matter thoroughly for you,but in the meantime I do hope that this actually does resolve your issue.

yours sincerely

2003 Kia Sorento- po700, po355


P0355....Ignition Coil E Primary/Secondary Circuit Malfunction would suggest you need to replace your coil packs. Heat damages them after time and will eventually lead to misfire and very rough running motor especially when it's damp out.

P0700....Transmission Control System Malfunction

I would start researching the possibility of a bad ground, a loose main cable to the battery, etc. If the codes come back, the P0700 can be very serious and could require attention at a Transmission shop or dealership. There is a remote possibility that the codes are entirely unrelated.
