    it depends on if there are other issues or if the OBD11 monitors are just not reset yet. did your ck eng light come back on?if not you may just need to drive the car approx 40 miles to give your computor time to reset.if your light did come back on you may have other issues. the codes only tell you which circuit is malfunctioning not that that part is bad.

    here is a company that independent auto repair shops get their information from, this same information is available inexpensively for people that work on their own cars.. The information is year make and model specific, covering repair procedures, torque specifications, fluid capacities and specifications, service bulletins, component locations, wiring diagrams ect.... Alldata is very easy to navigate http://bit.ly/AllData_Repair_Manuals_Online
    Not sure how far their information goes but Kia as a car manufacturer put a lot of great technical information and work shop manuals on line for free for Kia owners. www.kiatechinfo.com
