My wife was driving home yesterday when our Kia would not accelerate when she pressed the accelerator. All the lights came on the dashboard and the engine shut off. So, she had to pull over.
After she pulled over and attempted to restart the engine, the engine would turn over (click like it wanted to start) but would not start. Though the fuel was low, the tank still had 1/8th of a tank, and the “low fuel” light was not on.
This morning, I put gas in the car and it started after two or three attempts. I was able to drive it to a gas station to fill it up. The car started without any issues.
I’m thankful it started, but I’m concerned that there is an underlying issue, like a fuel pump, filter, or something else.
Any ideas? Anyone have a similar experience?
