My girlfriend's Amanti recently started running rough. It has 125k miles on it. It idles fine, but at initial acceleration, it runs rough and skips. It seems to do OK after it gets to cruising speeds. If you accelerate a little, it will skip again. Took it to Advance Auto to find that we're getting 2 codes:
I've done some research, but wanted to get some input before I dig in. It just hit me though, should I have cleared the codes to make sure one of them is not old? The codes don't seem to be related.
With P2122, can I replace the TPS myself? I'm not a mechanic by any means, but have done my own minor car repairs. Will the dealer need to do anything with the computer? I read where there was a TSB for this code on another model of Kia. Is it possible we're running into the same TSB?
With P0304, I was going to inspect the coil packs. Otherwise, I was planning on starting with a tune-up (plugs and wires). Any other suggestions?
A couple of other things I've noticed:
-When cold, the power steering does not work well. After the car warms up, it seems to work fine.
-When driving, I seem to hear a low "roaring" noise coming from the engine area. It's not terribly obvious, but it doesn't sound right to me.
Any input is greatly appreciated.
