What would my wife's Kia forte just die. It started back up and drove fine. It didn't spit n sputter. She said she was driving and it just quit and all the dash lights came on like when u firs start the car
If you can drive your Kia to the closest Autozone, O'Reilly's, Advanced auto parts, Pepboys, Napa or your trusted garage have it OBD2 scanned.
Just for an idea or basic at home check with basic min tools. You can start with the battery. How old is it? Check the battery + & - cables.
●Check the muti fuse. Check all relays & fuses.
●Check your alternator.
●Check for the electronic hum/buzz/zzz from the fuel pump.
●Check your spark plugs (if old or beyond the 100,000mile mark & gaps/replace if necessary)
●Check engine oil level.
There's also checking sensors but to me that's more indepth depending on the OB2 Scan+DTC codes retrieved.
Hoping it's something very easy & overlooked. Battery, low fuel (didn't fill up), muti fuse, alternator/starter.

After research apparently this problem has been getting passed over for years by moving the engines to a model not under recall. Sounds like a deceptive practice to me. My KIA forte with a mere 29000 began a slight knock in the summer, by winter on cold starts and first 2 or 3 min of driving...
My 2010 Kia Forte EX 2.0L developed the "cold knock" problem 3+ years ago. It has progressively gotten worse. Especially noticeable on cold mornings. I've taken it to mechanics for this problem who replaced/adjusted/lubricated various parts but the...
Just looking for people to chime in on how their car has held up over the last few years. I bought a 2012 sedan 6mt a little less than a year ago and put miles on my care quickly due to a 83mile round trip daily commute. Plus I am wondering if any of you had to do the valve inspection at 60k. I...
