Welcome, I'm Chris (aka-Moose).

  • THE TIME I AM ONLINE, 7 days a week normally online around midday and then late evening until early morning.
  • PHONE CALLS are automatically offered by the website normally after my first reply. I complete calls where I feel it is a benefit.
  • UPLOADED LINKS I SEND, if I upload dropbox links, they will open on a home PC, often they fail on a work PC, on a phone use the box on the top right of your phone screen for direct download.

During the 20 minute downtime, have you done any diagnostics at that time to see if your missing injector pulse, ignition spark, or fuel pressure?

No but apparently it's a common issue I just want to know if it's the fuel pump.
Kia Mechanic: Chris (aka- Moose), Technician replied 3 months ago

Yes, the fuel pump is a highly likely part for this scenario, but diagnosing by testing is the only way to confirm you are doing the correct repair and spending your money wisely.

You now will see a rating scale 1=bad to-5=excellent because I have posted a full or partial answer instead of an info request. When you rate I get a portion of the deposit you made, no rating means you still paid, but I earn nothing. My goal is understanding your question, and addressing it in full detail. In return, receiving a 5-star rating. Rating does not close the post or stop the conversation. Please keep in contact and reply as much as needed. Thanks, Chris
