Remote will/ won't lock doors, interior lights will/ won't come on, trip milage goes back to zero. Started about a week ago. Headlights won blink when the is used.

I brought the car and was told that the Caterlatic Converter was colloged up I clean it out and it still miss firing.

I did a compression check got a reading of 145 on cyl #1. (check ENG code Cyl#1 misfire). we replace injector,omed tested plug wire /coil pack check good within spec.range as per factory repair manual.(verified 12 volts going to coil pack's /r+r plugs/r+r fuel filter and fuel in tank also oil and filter changed,All vacume lines check good no cracks or leaks.Vacume tested EGR valve working like it is supposed to (engine stalls out)as per repair manual.I have pulled only the top part of the intake manifold and throttle body and intake hose from air cleaner to accsess injectors.I did not remove the part of the intake that is attached to the the block.Help i am sat for about 4.5 years, R&R clutch ran great for about three weeks then this problem.Thank you for any advice you may be able to give me.

ESC off light continues to come on for no apparent reason. Whining noise just started and is annoying.

also do I need a filter for the transmission? If so which one?

There seems to be nothing that triggers the alarm. It can happen at any time of the day or night. I would be happy to just have the alarm system disabled.

put windows down, when I go to close them they do not respond,
no matter how many times I try nothing. and at same time windows not working, and car door locks will all of the sudden
LOCK! never know when all this will occur. But, when issue with windows also always issue with car locks too.????


The system looks normal. But the engine did not start. signs of battery, engine oil pressure and start key are shown on the dash board. The radio and time are also working.R

I have the brake lights, tpms lights on, check engine lights all of which flash, shut off and then flash again. breaks are only 6 months old, tires are new and now the transmission is acting up. goes from not shifting to fourth in automatic to losing first and fourth gear in manual. i am thinking that it could be a confuion on the part of the computer but not sure. after reading all of the other people reporting imilar issues but not all of the lights i am unsure as how to proceed. i dont have 2000 for a new trans. is that my only option?

has good oil pressure

Check engine light is on and it shakes when im at a stop sign..engine is jumpie

Just changed plugs, boots, and the oil. Vehicle did this before this. JJust bought it from a private owner. It may be the trottle position switch.

2008 Kia Sportage vs 2011 Kia Sportage
2011 is AWD 111,000miles 4 Cycle engine
2008 is 4WD 55,000 miles V6 engine

Price is about the same. I am not good with cars and this is going to be my first car. I want a car that won't break down for next 5-7years. That is my TOP priority. I will probably drive 8,000~10,000 miles/yr. My price range is about $10,000. What is the better choice? And Kia Sportage is reliable, right?

Ive had both o2 sensors replaced, and been through emissions 3 times.

geting good fuel pressure checked it at the fuel filter,don't know from there ,what will stop fuel from there ,any answers or clues would be a lot of help thank you
