Hello, my name is***** you for the question. Can you tell me if the spark plugs were all that was changed? Was the vehicle running fine prior to changing them?

Customer reply replied 2 years ago
just plugs and wires. I have done it before with no problem. Yes it was running before. It turns over fine. I sprayed some starter fluid in it and it almost started.
Kia Mechanic: fix it man, Master Technician  replied 2 years ago

Thank you. It sounds like something is not hooked up correctly. Most of the time this is caused by something being hit or disconnected like the crank sensor wiring. Does the rpm gauge show a reading when cranking the engine?

Customer reply replied 2 years ago
I checked all connections. All seam to be good. The rpm gauge does not move when cranking. Should i here the fuel pump prime on this van. I here it on my other cars.

My obd tool says linking error
Kia Mechanic: fix it man, Master Technician  replied 2 years ago

Yes, you should. If there is no link I would start by checking the fuses under the hood. You may have a blown fuse.

The fuses are fine but some did not light up with test light(injection,o2,fuel)and a few others in the same row.
Kia Mechanic: fix it man, Master Technician  replied 2 years ago

Can you tell me which other ones did not. I am going to check my wiring diagrams to see if something else is occurring.

These fuses should get power directly from the battery. Are the cables at the battery clean and tight?
