It will start again after it cools off

Motor died at signal, starts but not very long and runs real ruff with load clanking sound in motor. Oil looks burnt. No overheating or oil light coming on does anyone know what it could be?

When fueling at gas station the pump will stop and I can hear the gas gurgling down than I can pump some more gas and same thing happens. It takes 10 minutes to fuel 5 dollars. When I start my car it will turn on than shut off. I need advise.

It's back down by the firewall. I need help please.

the starter and battery are good, but it just will not turn over, I use to knock on the starter, but it is still goo, but now itjust clicks when I tried to start it

Sometimes the brake pedal seems like it isn't really working and the car doesn't want to stop. If you press too hard, one of the the wheels locks up. And sometimes when you step on the brake, the car pulls to the left.

My car isn't starting and I think it is this sensor.

Took it to a garage, not sure they filled with Kia specific fluid!

Every connector every ground everything is hooked up properly please help I have exhausted every idea one of the engine coach is idle air control but I don't think that would cause all 12 of these codes

won't start some times. replaced the censor but that did not fix the problem

I have changed bulbs, fuses, and even the switch and my brake lights will not work. Are there more fuses behind the fuse box by driver side? Please help!!

belt appears to be on. no power steering or ac. This just started yesterday.
