New starter and engine tries to turn over with clattering from starter. Battery is good.


You say the battery is good but have you had it load tested to know for sure. It sounds like the battery may be the problem. I can also suggest that it might be the valve clearances, if they get too far out of adjustment it will cause the engine to crank over really hard which would cause the same kind of issue as you are describing.

2001 kia sephia if the knock sensor is bad will it make the engine tap ?


It sounds like valve clatter. If you are also noticing black smoke from the exhaust, diminished engine response, etc then it has a faulty valve. I have to be honest. The Kia you have is not known as a good car. It was made before Hyundai took over for quality control. I would seriously consider selling the car while it still runs. I am sorry for this answer, but I own a 2012 Kia Optima and have heard service writer horror stories on the Sephia. Again, I apologize for my recommendation.

Unknown Vibration Feeling...


Hi, I would try electrical fault. Try this, If you have engine running and handbrake fully on, and foot brake on, put it in drive and accelerate. If engine is rough or vibrating it could be spark plug, leads or coil pack. Under load any one of these will fail and cause a rumble (vibration) in the engine, when the engine has come off load it will run fine. You could also try putting your foot hard down on the pedal from stop position as if you were trying to do a burn out. It will give you the same result as handbrake test. That could be your problem as you mentioned that when aircon is turned on it does it (which is putting load on engine), but as far as slowing down to corner??????.

Engine clattering


Sounds like you got a bearing or push rod going out. Does it make a tickining sound. That could be a lifter. But if engine is makeing a metalic clattering sound, its about to let loose..

Low RPM and Vibration in First Gear


Possible dirty throttle valve and idle speed control valve.

Throttle Body Cleaning on vehicles without electronic throttle control (most 2003 and down)

You can in most cases repair this slow speed stall or unstable idle by cleaning the engine throttle valve and the idle speed control valve using a product called CRC Spray Throttle valve cleaner. Spray the cleaner into the air intake of the engine with the hose removed from the throttle body, the engine will try to stall so hold up the idle speed manually. Once you have used up about 1/2 can of the cleaner stall the engine out while spraying and turn the key off, disconnect the negative battery cable for 5 minutes and then reconnect and drive the car for a about 25 miles of varied driving modes. If this doesn't cure the problem you may need the fuel injectors professionally cleaned by the dealer service dept.

When pushing on gas pedal buzzing sound seems to go away


with engine running?? assuming noise is under hood here is one possible cause. sometimes pcv valve will make a buzzing noise as the little ball in there flaps around when spring gets weak. locate your pcv valve and feel it if this is noise you will feel the hose vibrating and if so replace valve

ThenI start my engine it sounds like diesel and no power


how is the oil level and pressure?, how many miles on engine? is this a loud knock or rather a clatter/ticking noise? knock is engine rod or crankshaft bearings, clatter loud ticking is valve follower noise. how long before it (the noise) goes away?
