Having problems with your Cars & Trucks ?
PLEASEEEEE help! I have a 2000 kia sephia when I first bought the car ( from a private seller) it ran perfect as time went on the check engine light would switch on then switch off again at random times, at that time it chugged a very small amount while I was at complete stops... I decided to get it checked and it came up as a 4 th cylinder misfire . So I then decided to change the spark plugs... After doing so my car started running HORRIBLE when trying to accelerate it backfires really bad an
First, quit begging, why did you buy this piece of s--- ? do you have a licence , donot drive this vehicle until its fixed, its dying, your kickingdead horse dude stop it, now. don't know if this can be fixed. now, timing is way out, lets keep it simple, you need the following : spark plug wires, the right spark plugs, if you have a distributor of some sort, get it a new cap and rotor, all stock items, not aftermarket . when was the last time fuel filter was changed, do it. find out where the timing needs to be, repair manual for this car by haynes . you need it. after completing all work, timimg must be checked, and set, need timing light, inductive type best, make sure plug wires are on the right spark plugs and in the distributor @ right location, see repair manual. place timing light around #1 spark plug, and also attached to battery terminals red is +, black is - , negative, knowing the timing, start engine, keep timing light wires away from fan, etc., have distributor hold down bolt loosened so you can turn it while you point the timing light towards crank damper to see timing mark, (marked w/ chalk ) timing light will flash quikly turn distributor until the correct timing is achieved, (see repair manual) for correct location of timing, when you reach this position, tighten down distributor hold down bolt, now your timing is set. Is engine running better ? NOTE: some engines need to unplug something before timing is set, (see repair manual) like the throttle position sensor, yours may be somthing else, find out which one. (repair manual) its important ! make sure all vacumn lines are in proper locations, its important, now man up and prove to me that you can do it, this can change your life, 321 goooooooooooooooooooooooooo!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
