Yes the wiring was checked and it was fine. We are not sure of the trouble code, but we think it might be 143. When it was checked it came up as CAM sensor and the number was behind it.
a code number never identifies a bad part, just a failed system. i would stop throwing parts at it and get it checked by a shop for the exact failure. guessing is expensive and most of the time wrong.
We actually did end up taking it to a KIA dealership. They told us the problem is a roll pin that lines up sprocket is bent. Causing it to be a half tooth out of time. Throwing cam sensor code. Thank you for all the help u provided, it was greatly appreciated.
i see on identifix that this is a common issue. hope it works out for you.
