Kia Maintenance Questions? Ask a Mechanic for Answers ASAP

Thank you very much for trust in just answer.Dear customer, I would like a little more information please to reduce the possibilities that may be happening in your vehicle for example I would like to know what maintenance have you done, the mileage and the kind of fuel your car use.in addition if you have replaced any part and if you have scanned the car.Thanks in advance.
Dear customer, I understand the cam sensor that you normally replace does not cause this kind of problems in which the vehicle shuts down and it takes time to turn on, this type of problem mainly occurs when there is lack of maintenance in the fuel system or air intake system.The first thing to do is a replacement of the fuel filters, if your model has a fuel cell/battery stack in the fuel tank, it is very likely that this will need to be replaced as it is a common failure when we present problems in it, If your model does not have cell. you must disassemble the injection pump and make a good review including the injectors.
About for the air intake system this fault is also like when the turbo has defects, so I also recommend you to perform a good revision to the turbo, finally the camshaft sensor works with another sensor known as the crankshaft sensor or CKP when this sensor has a defect If the vehicle shuts down, because this sensor regulates the injection timing to the cylinders, it is good that you also check it.Finally the pump relay if it is defective. Also turn off the vehicle so it is good locate it and check it and verify if it does not have some kind of problems like that it gets hotter than usual, this relay is located in the engine compartment in the relay/fuse box located there.
Dear customer these are the aspects that may be causing your problem, I recommend you verify it.
