I would like to thank you for your help in attempting to fix this problem. Logically everything check out that should make a car start. Every time I sprayed starter fluid in throttle body car would run so this made me start thinking that my problem was some issue related to gas. So I decided to drain the tank and started all over again. I got the gas from Shell on 82 near sunshine blvd here in Florida in Lehigh Acres and I decided to drain tank and start over. I put in a 5 gal container of fresh gas and the car started and smoke like a mosquito machine for about and hour and then she start to run nice and clean. They sold me a bunch of bad gas. Just to prove it was bad we put it in another car that was working and the car won't start and when we removed it the car smoke like a smoke stack. The Kia is running fine now after all the expense of new cam sensor not needed, new tps not needed, new fuel pump not needed etc just a tank of bad gas put this car into limp mode and would not let it start.

Would do thank you for the tip the check engine lite came on so I suspected 02 sensor and I was right I ran a code and it was the 02 sensor but I cleared it and it never came back. So I am watching that now but the car is running fine. Cpttrevor
