sorry CANT get it to crank
Kia Mechanic: Chris (aka- Moose), Technician replied 4 months ago

We are only allowed to help with one concern per question. We have done pretty much nothing on the 4wd, so we can swap over to no crank if that would be best.

is there shrader valve on the rail for fuel and i can check for spark but will have to get a set of the little diode lites to check pulse
Customer reply replied 4 months ago

Kia Mechanic: Chris (aka- Moose), Technician replied 4 months ago

Fuel pressure on this model is tested with a gauge connected to the fuel supply line to the injector rail.

back up and running...crank sensor replaced can we get back to the no*****issue....while back you helped me check the switch at the dash and all checked out good.. i jumped the compressor at the plug and it is good just not getting ant power to the plug and no light on the dash when knob is turned to 4 wheel high or low and the only code was the crank sensor thanks again
Kia Mechanic: Chris (aka- Moose), Technician replied 4 months ago

We are only allowed to help with one concern per question. We were diagnosing 4wd then no start and now back to 4wd. I do not want to get in trouble by the website for breaking the rules so I will opt out.
