MODELS CHECK ENGINE LIGHT

Engine Performance problem
1997 Other Kia Models 4 cyl Two Wheel Drive Manual 84000 miles

My KIA Sephia's check engine light came on a couple of years ago. I asked a mechanic about it and he said to take off the gas cap and re-tighten it. This worked at the time. We had the car parked for a couple of years and started running it again. The light is back on and the gas cap trick doesn't work. The mechanic said that KIA's are very sensitive and not to worry uless the light was flashing. The car seems to run fine and gets great mileage still. So how do I turn off the light?

Take the car to a good autoparts store (autozone etc.) Ask them to read the cars computer for the fault codes. Most do this free. This will tell you where the fault lies
