Kia Troubleshooting Questions? Ask a Mechanic
Hello, is the check engine light staying on and if so have you had the codes pulled?
Hi my name is ***** ***** I will be happy to assist with this today.In some cases I may need more info to assist better.I apologize for any delay.
With the check engine light on like this here the first thing that needs done is to have the fault codes checked to see what codes are set.Once this has been done any codes set will need diagnosed to locate and correct this fault here.This can be done by any repair facility and in allot of cases places like Auto Zone will usually read out these codes at no charge to you.I would start with having this done.
If your engine is still running but when you stop and then press on the gas pedal to move the vehicle doesnt move if the engine is revving up but the vehicle isnt moving at all this indicates a transmission fault and since you can cycle the key off and on and the fault corrects itself this indicates an internal electrical solenoid or sensor fault in the transmission.
If the engine does not rev when you reapply to move this can indicate a fault with the throttle position sensor needing replaced.
