Customer reply replied 3 years ago
no it seems more like a gas or throttle problem, have not taken it to have the codes checked
Kia Mechanic: Jerry, Master Mechanic replied 3 years ago
I see, thanks. You will want to see if there are any codes, Autozone and such will normally check codes for free. There was a bulletin for some calibrations but you will want to see if the codes are being set.
.
Also, if possible the fuel pressure, as the filter is in the tank with the fuel pump.
