    There is a very good RepairPal Encyclopedia article that would give you more details about this On Board Diagnostic Code, including common misdiagnoses and common tests; http://repairpal.com/OBD-II-Code-P0442

    Get help from a technician; http://repairpal.com/directory?address=92675&car_brand_names=Kia
