P0705 Transmission Range Sensor Circuit malfunction, usually a park neutral safety switch problem. 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
Thanks that confirms what I suspected. About a year ago a friend bypassed the neutral safety switch to the starter because the part was so expensive and the car would not start. It now starts but the check engine light comes on and goes off all the time and the car has no acceleration from a dead stop.
Thanks Again.
Key way is broke that holds the cam in place. Less than $10 for the part to fix. I would replace timing belt since you have to pull it off to get to the cam.
