Will not start. (2004 Kia Amanti)

10

Asked by Jun 29, 2015 at 02:04 PM about the 2004 Kia Amanti Base

Question type: Maintenance & Repair

I replaced the spark plugs, wires, vacuum tubes.  Now the engine will not start.  I do not
hear any hissing so not a vacuum leak.   When I turn the key I get cranking action (rrrrrrrr
noise) but no turn over.  I pulled back the ignition wires to 2-4-6 (these are easy to look at
as 1-3-5 are buried under manifold) and none of them were sparking when trying to start.

From what I read you either have a bad coil, or the wiring order on the cap is not correct. The cranking is just your starter doing its job, but no ignition is incorrect timing

The car has combination of wires and ignition coils. plugs 1 3 5 have wires and are buried under maniforld. the wires from 1 3 5 connect to ignition coils on top of 2 4 6 (connections 1-4, 3-6, 5-2) . Basically had to tear apart 1/2 of engine and disconnect many sensors, vacuum lines, etc. to do the spark plug and wires. after re- assembling I get no ignition. cranking but no spark can be seen if i pull back the wires (connecting 1 3 5) to coils 2 4 or 6. do you think it is crank shaft sensor problem or actual timing belt issue? Could a bad Oxygen sensor be to blame? https://www.google.com/search? q=kia+amanti+2004+spark+plug+wiring&newwindow=1&espv=2&biw= 1920&bih=947&tbm=isch&imgil=Oe2OCDpiaQ3liM%253A%253B1- X0zlvtn- jmLM%253Bhttp%25253A%25252F%25252Fwww.justanswer.com%2 5252Fkia%25252F53ki5-kia-amanti-firing-order-wire- order.html&source=iu&pf=m&fir=Oe2OCDpiaQ3liM%253A%252C1- X0zlvtn-jmLM%252C_&usg=__tV- yvdNXjhkMHLeV1w4EkNeYZEQ%3D&ved=0CEoQyjc&ei=gx2QVe_W DYHloATH0YP4BA#imgrc=ey4h8OW5XyfhQM%3A&usg=__tV- yvdNXjhkMHLeV1w4EkNeYZEQ%3D
