My 2012 Kia koup 2,0L manual ,has an issue of starting but it cranks ,tried
  • Tried kick starting - no starting
  • Tried swapping fuses - no starting
  • Change battery - no starting
  • Opened the fuel line connecting to the injectors and switch the car on to test fuel pump all is OKAY .
After different attempts the car suddenly started and had no error light nor engine light .but the car was idling just below usually like (just above 500 RPM ) were by the car usually idle revs around 900RPM - 1000RPM)
I tried to restart the car but it did not start again but it cranking like before...
Any one who has any idea what I should do , the car never troubled me before

I would check for codes first. If you have fuel, then you don't have spark. Could be a crankshaft position sensor.

You need to have 4 things in order for an engine to start. Spark, fuel, air and compression. Start with the easy ones and check compression last.
