When I drive my 1998 Sephia, it run perfectly as long s I don't stop. If I stop for gas or make any other short stop, it turns over but won't start. After about thirty minutes (sometime much longer) it starts normally. This is getting very irritating. Any suggestions?

CEL on? If so what codes?

How is the engine temp?

That indicates the ECM is not sending engine speed to the TCM.

Check the connections at the engine speed sensor and also the terminal for the engine speed sensor at the ecm. I bet they are the culprit.

Might need a good mechanic if you do not have a manual or check online at www.kiatechinfo.com and go to the ecm manual.

You can't put on a cel, its the "check engine light" The yellow engine light that comes on when there is an issue detected.
