I figured this should probably be in here..

Trouble Code Interpretation
The ECM indicates stored fault code by flashing the malfunction indicator/check engine lamp. Fault codes 1 through 9 are indicated by individual short blinks and fault codes 10 and above are indicated by long and short blinks. One long blink is equivalent to 10 short blinks. The fault code can be determined by adding the long and short blinks.

Clearing Trouble Codes
Diagnostic trouble codes may be cleared by disconnecting the battery ground cable for at least 20 seconds.

I have code p0170!!! :( which I have no clue what it means lol
You have a turbo right? Maybe it's something with the air flow sensor or throttle body sensor. I'm no gear head just guessing

P0170 Fuel Trim Malfunction - Bank 1. ?

Has nothing to do with my turbo. It's the 3" exhuast with no cat, I put a j bung in bank 2, to try and trick the comp into thinking there's a cat there but the j bung is to long and bank 2 O2 sensor is reading. I'm gonna try a spacer next, if that don't work I'm gonna try just putting the O2 sensor directly into the pipe and just clear the code every few hundred miles. Nothing else I can do.

P0175 KIA - Bank 2 System Too Rich

Possible causes
- Faulty front heated oxygen sensor

- Ignition misfiring
- Faulty fuel injectors

- Exhaust gas leaks

- Incorrect fuel pressure

- Faulty Mass Air Flow (MAF) sensor
When is the code detected?
- Fuel injection system does not operate properly.
- The amount of mixture ratio compensation is too large. (The mixture ratio is too rich.)
Symptoms
- Engine Light ON (or Service Engine Soon Warning Light)
- Excessive Fuel Consumption
P0175 KIA Description
With the Air/Fuel Mixture Ratio Self-Learning Control, the actual mixture ratio can be brought closely to the theoretical mixture ratio based on the mixture ratio feedback signal from the heated oxygen sensors 1. The Engine Control Module (ECM) calculates the necessary compensation to correct the offset between the actual and the theoretical ratios.


In case the amount of the compensation value is extremely large (The actual mixture ratio is too lean.), the ECM judges the condition as the fuel injection system malfunction and light up the MIL (2 trip detection logic).

How about you get btr to erase the code and make the computer stop looking for it. If he know how to tune he can erase that sensor from the ecu.

Cause I seized the engine in my suburban, and I need that more then I need the Kia fixed. The Kia just goes to car shows and meets, the suburban is my DD. unless I find $3k with in 2 months but I doubt that cause my wife doesn't want me spending money on cars anymore cause of the baby :( FML!!!!!

oh yeah, poor you! all you have is a 300hp forte! haha

is it really worth it to clear the code every so often? Would a high flow catalytic converter really restrict your performance that much?

Ok check it out.... Fixed some-what of my problem. After examining the engine, and getting some hints as what it could be, we found that the nut coming off the down pipe wiggled loose, which was causing the computer not to read the O2 sensors and making it run lean. After tightening it, started the car and now the wideband is bouncing from 15.1 to 13.6 which is optimal. On occasion at idle it will stay at 14.7 which is preferred. Prior to the fix it was reading 17.1 which is way to lean. We disconnected the battery so the ecu would re-set itself and took it out for a nice easy ride to see if the CEL would go off. After about a half hour it did and the codes I got were

P0140
P0136

Both have to to with bank 1 sensor 2 (the O2 sensor in the j bung)

I also got a "soon to be a problem" code
P0170 - fuel trim malfunction bank 1

Sooooo..... take off the j bung?

I'd bet you have a vacuum or unmetered air leak. Have you pressure tested your intercooler piping? i bet you are showing as running very lean aren't you? I'd put my money on a pipe leaking air downstream from the MAP Sensor.

If not that, try replacing the O2 sensors.

The way I fix the Cel to go off with the test pipe was adding brillo about half inch in the j bung.

Ok, i spoke to a friend that has a muffler shop he said since you increase the diameter the j bung its not need it, its all ready getting less flow.

i also keep throwing a cel code for lean at idle bank 1 lol so ever figure out a fix?
i got a 2012 koup sx 6mt turbod, 3" turbo back exhaust...... /=
