2014 kia rio 1.2lt. wont start....

Asked by Nov 24, 2016 at 06:47 AM about the 2014 Kia Rio LX

Question type: Maintenance & Repair

Car used to idle fine but the moment it revs up to 4000rpms, it cuts off and
switchs off. Start again and leave idling for 5min and then it pinks and back fires
but doesnt switch off . Did diagnostics and reset faults, picked up crank sensor.
But now it cranks and refuses to start. Is there a way to get this sorted as its
costing me lots of cash. An auto electrician says he needs to replace crank
sensor, disconnect electric accelerator, re-line all components back to computer
and then only will start. Is he right or ripping me off? All fuses and plugs and
sensors still intact.
