Question about 2001 Kia Sephia
I am single mom and need to fix this myself. Can I do it and How?

The mass air flow sensor is in the tube going to the injection unit. Between air filter and injection unit. Be very careful it is very delicate handle with care, fine wires on inside of tube for MAF sensor, go to any auto parts store and tell them you need MAF sensor cleaner. the instructions are on can. Do not hit the fine wires of the MAF sensor with the straw on can. This will clean the sensor, unless you just want to replace it! But to my knowledge they are very expensive. If removing the sensor, disconnect the wires going to it. On some cars you can spray it without taking it from hose. But after cleaning it. Wait about 5 minutes until it dries. Hope this helps, Good-Day!

Appreciate the direct "Ask Me".
Hard starting could be caused by a number of faults such as weak battery corroded/loose battery terminals, fuel delivery issues and others which may include as you posted the MAF sensor. In my country however, most Kias have a peculiarity. They like to be well warmed up (even if it is hot here). Hard starting specially after short hops/trips is actually the ECU/ECM/Control Module or the car's computer getting mixed sensory inputs. The corrective action is to warm up the car fully before using. In some instances, it may also be required to reset the computer by removing the negative battery terminal for a few minutes. Pls bear in mind that some alarms are triggered this way and/or some car stereos would require a security code if the battery is removed.
Hope this be of initial help/idea. Pls post back how things turned up or should you need additional information.
Good luck and kind regards. Thank you for using FixYa.

SOURCE: no headlights
I found the connectoers to the headlights to be un weather proofed. I went to auto zone or advance auto to buy replacement connectoers, The replacement I bought had 3 wires, Black, Red, Green, and they have a rubber protective boot so as not to fail again. Turn off the car and disconnect your battery.
1. Pull the plug on the headlight
2. cut the wires
3. Black to black, blue w/red stripe to green, and blue to Red. I would use **** connecters with a heat shrink, or just tape really good with black electrical tape.
4. plug new connector in to headlight and test. Should be ok now.

The Oxygen probe is located in the exhaust manifold or front exhaust pipe it takes a 22mm wrench to loosen it and at first you need to dismantle the battery to avoid electric hazard, then the cable to the probe so it does not have any connection with the vehicle, clips and holders, after that turn the probe anticlockwise to dismantle it, and reversed operations when fitting the new one, and that should fix you problem.
The only thing that can be a problem is if the probe is rusted together to the manifold, that requires professional help.
