I have a 2011 kia forte ex, every now and then (not every time) I start the car, it has trouble idling. When it turns over, the engine would catch but it would the keep its rpms low and sputter (almost like there is water in the gas, nut there is not) I keep my foot on the fuel and it starts to pan out the works fine, and then the car has no issues after thay. This don't happen all the time.



I also have a p200a (intake manifold runner performance bank 1) code with a O2 Sensor.



Would the that p200a code cause such a problem with starting? I know that a new vcm actuator could fix this code. But I would like to get the car starting properly first.

I have attached all the codes.


Any help would be great.



Thanks.

Thanks so much for the info. I will try what you suggested.


I read something about having to get something updated after replacing the VCMA?

I believe it was called ECM or something along those lines?

Sorry I misread your last post. I will put the code reading on in a day or so, it's my daughter's car and she is living away. But the starting issue has not happened in the last 2 days, but it has happened when the car is cold or warm.
