Kia Troubleshooting Questions? Ask a Mechanic
Hello, my name is***** to see if it runs with starting fluid. If so problem is fuel related, if not then timing probably jumped. Keep me updated with how it goes and I can give you further instructions on what to do. Let me know if there is anything else I can do to help, thanks.
Ok, next step is a fuel pressure test. Fuel pressure should be around 60-65 psi key on engine off, if not replace filter to see if that helps. If not verify pump gets good power/ground while trying to start, if so then replace pump. Let me know if you would like replacement instructions for pump or if you have more questions, thanks.
There is a damper but that shouldn't cause this problem, it just stabilizes pressure. At pump black wire should have ground and pink/black have power while trying to start. Let me know, thanks.
No there is no fuel cut off. Check injector pulse with LED test light. One wire should have good power and other wire should pulsate ground off/on while trying to start. Do fuel pressure test too. Keep me updated, thanks.
