MODELS ENGINE SURGE

1994 Kia Other

Engine Performance problem
1994 Other Kia Models 4 cyl Front Wheel Drive Manual

I have a kia avella not really brandnew when I bought it. The problem is my engine surge while driving as if my accelerator pedal is being pushed with also a feeling of choking and the engine generates no force even if I put it in 1st gear and the car seems to have no power to move. Everytime this happens il just turn off the key and restart the engine and it returns to normal. Its a very dangerous situation for me it always happen when im on the road moving then the car will just rev by itself with no power to move. I already do some troubleshooting myself like changing the sparkplugs with platinum, change the high tension wires, the fuel filter, cleaned air filter and distributor. But the problem still exists. By the way my car has a KHAOS fuel saver device but been using it for 2 years already. Thanks
