Engine Mechanical problem
2002 Kia Sedona 6 cyl Automatic 110000 miles
I had the timing belt in my 02 sedona replaced at 110k miles. After 2 days in the shop, I picked it up and the whole car vibrates, whether driving or idled. I took it back to the shop and they set the idle lower. It doesn't vibrate as bad, but when stopped feels like the car is going to die. Also pickup/acceleration from a stop is now very sluggish, car vibrates until about 20 mph, then smooths out. After idle set lower, now check engine light is on, took it back to shop, they said it is a misfire on cylinder 6. They replaced spark plug, wires, fuel injector, some kind of coil, check eng light still on and car still idles and drives very rough. My Q is: is the second problem of the idling and the cylinder misfire related to the timing belt repair (i.E, could it have been a poor/botched repair job)? Know nothing about cars, but 5 days in shop seems excessive. They have no idea what the problem could be.
have the same problem?
