1997 Kia Sephia Question: engine sputters and stalls out

all my fluids are up to level there's gas in the tank starts up fine, after driving less than a yard it sputters and stall out, is the a fuel line, or fuel injector problem? -
Answer 1
It's very difficult to tell what the cause can be without more of a diagnosis. It's unlikely that you have a bad injector or fuel line. Is the Check Engine Light on? You may have a fuel delivery problem, a bad sensor in the engine control system, or something else. I suggest you have the codes checked first. -
Answer 2
one of the many vacum lines fell off or or mabey the TPS is faulty and in mine with no air filter it stalls out if u dont adjust timming almost all the way -

Answer 3
on these cars, the throttle cable that regulates the idle gets slack in it. just tighten the screw that adjusts the tension. i didnt have tools one time and i just bent the mount back until it got tight again. do this while the car is running at idle -
