Kia Sephia only starts sometimes

Showing 3 out of 3 Posts
Question From Guest on Kia Sephia only starts sometimes

My 1998 Kia Sephia only starts sometimes. It has a new starter and new battery and new sparkplugs, but it doesn't turn on sometimes. What can I do?

Response From Guest

If it has a miss and your experiencing power loss I'd say timing belt is loose or out of time, this is real common in Kias

Response From Tom Greenleaf Top Rated Answer

When it doesn't start try to test for spark or lack of fuel as the problem and go from there. When it does start does it keep running for you as long as you want?

STARTER MOTOR TROUBLE. YOUR COMMENTS ARE NEEDED

Question From ThePrimeShot on STARTER MOTOR TROUBLE. YOUR COMMENTS ARE NEEDED

Greetings from Australia

i have a KIA Pregio 2005 I use for work.

The issue here is that when I turn the ignition the Van usually
takes a few turns before the starter motor kicks in.

I suppose I am wandering if anyone knows a good starter motor maintenance guide, a link or any tips on how to maintain a starter motor.

Its going to be hot this summer again and the van is always good for camping making sure it runs shit hot.


Response From ThePrimeShot

The battery is fine, it is new.

The issue here is that the starter motor itself is in need of a clean and maintenance. I have never done a starter motor
before.

It could be that the solenoid needs a clean.
Something to do with the brushes.

Any help is appreciated.

ie. Are there safety precautions?

Should I use grease, degreaser etc...

Kia starters are a cheaper type like a lot of newer cars, and were never designed for maintenance. If they work, you run them. When they fail, replace with new. I have never heard of a starter maintenance schedule for any type of vehicle ever.

Response From ThePrimeShot

Yes you would of,

every car repair manual printed will have a starter motor
section inside. A repair manual will cost about 60 dollars brand new.

Response From nickwarner

A crappy Haynes manual is about $20. A factory repair manual goes anywhere from $150-$500 depending on the source. though alldata has eliminated the need to purchase them now. Look in any manual you like, there is no starter maintenance schedule. Never will be. They make these components stamped and crimped so hard that you would wreck them taking the apart. Manuals will give a troubleshooting flowchart for a starter to determine if its the issue and guide the user through the replacement. Its not the tin man from the wizard of oz, you don't get rid of the squeaks with an oil can and call it good til the next rainstorm.

Response From Discretesignals

Starter motors are intended to be maintenance free. When they fail to perform is when they are either taken apart and rebuilt or replaced as a unit. Back in the old days mechanics used to rebuild starters when they failed for some reason. Since a reman starter is cheaper than paying a repair shop technician to overhaul one, most customers opt to replace the unit unless it is some special or rare starter.

The best thing you can give your starter is a good supply of current when it asks for it. That means making sure your battery and electrical connections can deliver what the starter needs. Also making sure your starter isn't getting contaminated by engine oil leaks is helpful in making sure it has a long service life. Another thing to consider is making sure your engine doesn't have problems that makes the starter motor run longer than intended during cranking.

I once had problems with a Bosch starting motor. The problem was the clutch at the Bendix. The clutch, a rubber disk in a "Donat"housing. was slipping, because it was full of grease. I opened the housing and cleaned the inner part. It worked fine after that.

Response From Discretesignals

Donat housing? Isn't there supposed to be lubrication in a one way clutch?

Response From Hammer Time

Great idea. That should solve all your problems. It may even create world peace too.

Response From Hammer Time

You do realize you are talking to professional techs, right?

Response From Hammer Time

The battery is fine, it is new.

The issue here is that the starter motor itself is in need of a clean and maintenance.

How do you know the battery is fine? Do you think new batteries never fail?

Where did you come up with the nonsense about the starter? Did you make that up yourself?

Response From Discretesignals

When ever your diagnosing a starting system fault the first thing you usually do is have the battery tested and to make sure your battery connections are clean and tight. If the battery is weak or the cabling has a high resistive connection to the battery, your other system tests are going to be affected.

Question From tony long on 2004 kia rio

2004 Kia rio 16v it cut off and i couldn't get it to crack back so i was told i needed a starter so i put one on now i still can't get it to crack i checked the timing it's ok its get gas i checked the spark plugs there good any ideas

Response From Discretesignals

Why don't you proof read your sentences instead of making yourself look like an idiot. If you don't take your time to use proper spelling and grammar, why should we take our time in giving you advice?

Response From tony long

Smart ass i already did and cause i spelled a word wrong you want to talk down to me get over your self and give good ideas and no you must be the crackhead you point it out cause the word crank was spell wrong so I'm just saying

Response From Tom Greenleaf Top Rated Answer

Sill waiting for the the results of your testing what dropped out,

PS: Fatterly already got you where you are..........

Response From Tom Greenleaf

What's with this word "crack?" So some crack head told you it needed and starter that wasn't the problem.


Try following some common sense. I doubt you know how to check timing or spark plugs.
Follow this intended for all crank no start situations and see what is missing and report back. If you can't do this car repair isn't for you.

Kia Clarus Starter Motor problem?

Showing 2 out of 2 Posts
Question From BeeGeeUK on Kia Clarus Starter Motor problem?

Hello, first post here and hope I can get a little help.
2000; Kia; Clarus; 2.0; 50,000

I have a Kia Clarus and suspect I have a starter-motor problem. Starter has been "lazy" for awhile and now when I turn ignition I get nothing at all, not even a click although the battery is good/charged and the dashboard lights all show brightly.


Udate:

I just rolled the car back a couple of feet, turned the ignition and..........it started.

Drove it for around a mile, then parked it.

Turned ignition key again and........Nothing, not even a click.

Seems I may indeed have isolated it to a sticking or otherwise faulty starter, unless someone can advise me to the contrary.

Assuming I’ve diagnosed it correctly, could someone point me in the direction of a replacement please (second-hand is fine, so long as it works, as the car is 15 years old and I can't afford to spend too much).

Also, where could I get a service manual or guide to replacing a Clarus (year 2000) starter-motor, please? I have searched the Web but can't find a manual for this model.

I don’t even know where I would find the starter, under the bonnet!

Thanks again for reading and for any advice available.

Any help gratefully received.

Greetings. Quote you">>

That's a tough place to begin with if you don't know how to find it you aren't apt to do much yourself about it. This exact car isn't sold to the US so limits regulars here on specifics but not for checks you might be able to do.


YOU claim battery is charged and OK but how? Not because dash lights are bright which means almost nothing.
You've left clues that starter was "lazy" for a while whatever that means exactly and capable of doing no response at all or a noise.
This may not be a starter at all as you said you rolled back some and it plain worked so more likely a connection despite you thinking they are good you would clean and test them.


Before going into it too much if you had step by step procedures do you have any tools at all or access to them? I suspect NO is the answer but you tell me.


Just for now I'll suggest some things you can do without tools at all. Look at battery and determine which post is positive and which is negative and the cables attached. Follow the positive cable as it will end up at the solenoid (remote switch really to starter) usually on top of the starter and the negative cables most usually end up at the engine block or at least something metal attached well to engine block. All those connections must be clean and good.
No tools you could just gently tug on the cable and I mean gently right at any of those and there's a chance since it can start one will make it start again and that's the first one to tend to. If you really think battery cable connections are good at battery the one at the solenoid is down lower and most likely now to be weak. It a tug test works there spray it with something targeting connection with like WD-40 at least which most people should have and that would at least help if someone else is going to take it off and fix it.


You usually can find YouTube clips on your specific car and engine on replacing a starter which would show you where it is and how but fewer would discuss any complications such as the fastener breaking off or how to test out wires that you are already expected to know.


IDK -if wrong say so. If I'm right this job really isn't for you even with a cheaper, used or rebuilt starter you need tools to know it and tools to do it that even if fairly simple may exceed just having this done for you,

2000 kia sportage, won't start

Question From MaryChris on 2000 kia sportage, won't start

2000 Kia Sportage won't start. Starter turns. Head gasket, spark plugs, fuel pump, fuel assembly, timing belts and crank shaft sensor have all been replaced. Fuel reset button reset. The cruise control cable has been cut (this car does not even have cruise control)???....However since in this model you must put your foot on the brake to start the car, would the cut cruise control cable cause it to not start?

Response From Discretesignals Top Rated Answer

Has this vehicle ever ran? Was it running before all those parts were replaced?

Response From Hammer Time

The cruise control cable has nothing to do with anything to start the car.

All "crank, no start" conditions are approached in the same way. Every engine requires certain functions to be able to run. Some of these functions rely on specific components to work and some components are part of more than one function so it is important to see the whole picture to be able to conclude anything about what may have failed. Also, these functions can ONLY be tested during the failure. Any other time and they will simply test good because the problem isn't present at the moment.
If you approach this in any other way, you are merely guessing and that only serves to replace unnecessary parts and wastes money.



Every engine requires spark, fuel and compression to run. That's what we have to look for.

These are the basics that need to be tested and will give us the info required to isolate a cause.

1) Test for spark at the plug end of the wire using a spark tester. If none found, check for power supply on the + terminal of the coil with the key on.


2) Test for injector pulse using a small bulb called a noid light. If none found, check for power supply at one side of the injector with the key on.


3) Use a fuel pressure gauge to test for correct fuel pressure, also noticing if the pressure holds when key is shut off.

4) If all of these things check good, then you would need to do a complete compression test.

Once you have determined which of these functions has dropped out,
you will know which system is having the problem.

Thank you...got lots of work to do!
