Customer Question
2011 Kia forte random no...
2011 Kia forte random no start just crank. Car ran fine from the auction to home and just shut off no noises just turned off. Codes are
P0340
P0016
P0030
P0135
So far I've replaced cam sensor and crank due to the correlation code but no luck, haven't done anything about the O2 heater codes.
I did realize this engine has another cam sensor on the exhaust cam that's not connected and a vvt on exhaust cam that is also not connected but there is no connector for eather sensor. Weird maybe an en fine from a different year was swapped??? Don't know

The engine in the Forte comes with either a single cvvt or dual cvvt. It sounds like someone put the wrong engine in the car. That will explain why all the cam sensor and timing code.
