hi,

 

have a problem today. hope you guys know what it is. kia forte 1.6sx of 5 years and 4 months old, 77Kkm mileage. 

 

Today the car jerks at idle at red light, and i can see that RPM slight jumps up and down, like 400rpm - 700rpm. Usually it is idle at 400rpm without up and down. The jerk is about every 4 seconds, not constant jerking. can feel the car tremble.

 

When i press the throttle to accelerate during travelling, the car will jerk again, and does not accelerate instantly as normal. after a while it accelerates to a higher cruising speed, then it's OK again. During jerking, the engine light flashes like 10 times. when the jerk stops, engine light becomes off again. I just changed engine oil and engine filter 2 months ago.

 

Is this worn spark plugs, or ATF due to change (coz it's been a while), or both, or something else? 

 

Thanks.

Could possibly be due to spark plugs or high tension cable needs to be replaced.

yes, plugs/ignition coil/cable should be checked first...

 

A OBD scan should pin point the exact problem.  Buy one from here and download a smartphone apps:

I'm not very experienced, but it does sound like a misfire.

Guess work is only good for symptoms common to a model.

 

Use OBD to isolate first. Go to workshops with the right tool.

Yeah. I also think it's misfiring. Worn spark plug won't activate CEL.


The chosen one will bring balance to the Force...I mean Singapore. Even star wars do not reserve "the chosen one" to a sith lord or a jedi or a wookie.

Buy a cheap OBD2 bluetooth adapter from Dealextreme, I got one from them as well and it works great. For engine codes you can google them to get a better idea of what they mean as some code names are not clear.

it is misfiring from the code. initially p0300. but after changing coil and spark plugs, it still has misfiring with p0302. 2nd cylinder misfiring. just hope it is not something seriously bad and will have to spend a bomb. still yet to diagnose what exactly it is.
