Try getting a new Starter, however, since KIAs are a piece od S*** (I have one with the same problem, that nobody seems to know how to fix) Try getting in touch with a Kia dealer, even though it is going to be very expensive (~$500) as compared to a regular mechanic. Good luck, as I will need it too.

i would try the crankshaft position sensor. it is a frequent problem on Kia and would cause your symptoms. part cost is around $50 not including labor.

I had the same problem with my 2001 Sportage. I even replaced the crankshaft position Sensor ($72) which was a pain to get to. I finally took it to a shop and paid $85 for them to put on a computer. They told me the ECU was bad. The Electronic Control Unit... the brain box. Also the shop told me it was covered under warranty (under some federal recall thing). I called my local Kia dealer and they confirmed. The Kia dealer covered the ECU and towing! Now it runs perfect! Pay a few bucks to get it on a computer... and don't spend all your money replacing this & that.

Have u tryed puting in new spark plugs in that's what was wrong with my girlfriends car.


Dont' forget to check the simple things first. As with any other car, your starter can turn over the engine but if you don't have air, gas and spark your car will not work.

Before anything else, you need to rule out the basics.

If you fried your engine does your vehicle still start?

Well there are many different things that can go wrong with and engine and make them bad or "fried" as you put it. A few vague examples are: -If the engine is seized up it will not start. -If it does start up but knocking then it needs to be taken to a mechanic. Driving a car that knocks will only cause further damage. -A car with a blown head gasket will start and run usually but will overheat and cause further damage such as warping of the heads. If a car doesn't start it doesn't necessarily mean that the engine is "fried". There are many possibilities for why an engine will not start. Look up "no start" situations for the car make and model. Hope this helps.

Why wont my 2002 grand am start Starters just makes a funny noise already replaced starter still does the same thing zweeeee sound?

since you have replaced the starter, the mostlikely cause is the flywheel. there are probably a few teeth missing on it. Try turning the engine manually a little and then start the engine. if it starts this is probably the case. if not the fly wheel may still be damaged.

First off you should not start the engine if the oil is low in the first place. Secondly, why not just top the oil off so you know it is not low and then see if it will start. If it still will not start then you know low of oil was not the cause.

How do you fix a Start Error message on a ML320 It will not start?

A couple things could be wrong...... first thing you always want to try is another key, (if you have one) then if the car starts and no error message you know you have a bad key. if you still have a no start and error message it might be the transponder coil located on the ignition switch. could also be a bad imobilizer. Question.....does the engine start and then die right away? Or does the engine not start at all? a bad transponder coil will usually cause the start then die complaint. good luck!

When you change the fuel filter will car still start and cut off?

if changing the fuel filter, and it still stalls out. you have a problem with the fuel not getting to engine.

Put in new fuel filter and car still will not start?

Still won't start? Does that mean it didn't start before you replaced the filter? Obviously it wasn't the filter. Get back to basics. Test for spark and fuel. A filter is almost never the cause of a no-start.
