Question about 2001 Kia Sephia

1 Answer

I have a kia avella which went under major repair after a crash accident. the front left side of the car had the biggest damage. radiator, airconditioning system, fuse box and many other was destroyed. thankfully the engine was not really affected. but now my problem when is when i start my aircon the engine seems to have difficulty working and has very low rpm. and so i can only run maximum of 40kph only. we have already changed the distributor cap and rotor but still the problem prevails. pls help thanks.

The cars computer may need to relearn the idle. When the battery has been disconnected for a while it wipes the memory, so the next time you start it the car goes through a re-learn process. It's free to try, so give it a shot. Disconnect the battery for an hour or two (maybe overnight if you can) then connect it back after it has been sitting. Make sure lights, a/c, radio, all accessories are off and start the car. Let it sit and idle for a while (maybe 10 minutes) until it warms up and the idle drops to normal. Then you should be good as far as the re-lean process goes.
If that doesn't help, then you may have a wiring issue from the wreck. Assuming nothing was done to the engine.

02 Kia optima, slight front end accident. Now will not turn over, gauges and electrical work. Problem?


I think this car has a special relay (fuel pump emergency shut off) under the hood that shuts off the fuel pump after a crash. Call the dealer and ask for a new one, it is a one time use and must be replaced.

Have the fault codes read. Replace the faulty units with
genuine one because most aftermarket units are not set for OEM cpu units and
are not completely compatible.

My kia avella`s steering wheel is going half inch up and down


Check that the bolts that hold the steering column onto the bodywork are tight. This will require some fiddling under the dash and possibly removing the steering column cowlings.

Well, it depends on whyyour key fob is not working. It could be that the key fob itself has been damaged by any number of things including getting wet, dropping it, etc. It could be that the key fob just needs a new battery. (This would be maintenance)

On the other hand, it could be that the reciever in the car may have been damaged as a result of the accident. The only way to know for sure is to have your keyless entry system properly diagnosed to find the cause of the key fob not working to open the doors.

The only other suggestion I have is to try your other key fob if you have more than one.

Mazda MPV 1995 , over heat quickly


Your cooling fan(the electric fan in front of the radiator) is either damaged or not spinning. Don't drive it, until you get it repaired, or you
will seriously damage the engine.Good luck.

Fuel pump is located inside your fuel tank.Sometimes if you have involved in an accident there is automatic shut off switch that will kill the fuel pump operations and prevent fire durring accident.Chek your manual for fuel pump shut off switch. Sometimes is located in the Trunk or in front of vehicle on driver side under dash on left side panel.

It sounds like your vehicle needs to have it's suspension and chassis realigned on a body jig. Any quality body repair shop will be able to help. You may well have some damage to the suspension mounting areas that will need specialized repairs.
