You can push on the gas pedal & RPM's will not rise. With your foot on the gas pedal - the engine will not rev up. right foot on the gas & hit the brake pedal with left foot, the RPM's go up like it suppose to.
this is causing my battery to drain,and vehicle won't start.
While driving my car began to chime as an indicatotion that one of the doors was open. After stopping and checking the doors and realizing all of them were closed. I got back in and it began again and has not gone off yet.
my heater Blows good but doesn't heat up or defrost. Could be the thermostat cloged,or Heater Core went out.
I can be at a stop and the engine will raise up and my Kia will try to go while my feet is on the brakes.
On 9/25 I was driving home and the engine light came on, I was able to pull into a parking lot and then the vehicle died. I had it towed to a auto shop. Since it was a Friday they couldn't get to it until Monday. On Monday afternoon he called me and said that he thinks it was the radiator that overheated and there was a leak. And when it overheated it shut down and the gauge didn't work. He also said that I was overdue to have the timing belt replaced and that it was badly cracked. So I authorized the work to be done. It cost $1636. I picked it up on Tuesday afternoon 9/29 and drove it home. On Wednesday I only went to work and back. Thursday morning I left for work, stopped to pick up my husband's paycheck and when I tried to start the car, it wouldn't start. So I had it towed back to the same mechanic. He had it all day Thursday and by the mid afternoon, my husband and I went over there. He wasn't sure exactly why it wouldn't start, but that they were waiting for the fuel to drain out because he said he thought that it might be a fuel injector. We left and went home, he called me about 4:30 and said the engine was seized up and that they couldn't even get it to wrench start. Now he is saying I either need to scrap it or get a new engine to the tune of $4300. I am having it towed to my house so I can get a second opinion, but something doesn't sound right to me.
