My 2004 Kia amanti does not want to turn over the engine.

Customer Question

My 2004 Kia amanti does not want to turn over the engine. The gas pump works well, fuses and relays appear working, spark plugs are good. I put staring fluid into air filter but the engine cranks and at times wants to turn in but doesn't. Is there something else I need to do?? Please help.

Hello, unfortunately I will not be able to do a live phone call but I would like to help. Have you had the vehicle scanned for trouble codes? This would give us a direction to go in if there was a code.

No, I have not.
Expert:  Andrew Martin replied 1 year ago.
Alright, have you ever had the timing belt replaced? And when you spray starting fluid into it you need to do it after the air filter at the throttle body. Check if it starts doing that. If that does not work, remove the fuel pump fuse and pull a spark plug out leaving it in the coil, have someone crank it over and see if the plug is sparking.
