But, the brand new fuel pump assembly, required an Adjustment for the Float Lever sensor, in order to fuction properly, because it came from factory way too tight somehow; so I disassembled that lever sensor to check if it was alright and reasembled everything back, letting the lever arm to move freely as it should.
Something pretty interesting, regarding the new fuel Pump assembly swap, is that, somehow the Low Fuelwarning light, at the instrument cluster, came back again to function; because I've lost that warning light function when I did the instrument cluster Swap, years ago...
I did that cluster swap then, (without the need of changing anything on the wiring nor plugs, more info ~► Here), to gain Tachometer which the original cluster didn't have; and the only thing lost then, was the warning light for the low fuel.
Since such warning light came back to life Flawlessly with the new Fuel Pump Assembly, I believe that the wiring is different between the fuel pump assembly for the basic model and the fuel pump assembly for the luxury model... somehow.
So, the problems with the Fuel Pump and the non-functional low fuel warning light, were solved by changing the old one with the new fuel pump assembly; thanks to God.
In another Subject; as I wrote some posts ago, the plastic from the wiring terminals in this Sephia, are crumbling away, making connection problems in some sensors; the most recent fail was the terminal for the Knock Sensor, which crumbled away, letting the wiring to hang down disconnected...
So, part of the Box pictured some posts above, was a set of brand new Sensors, which came along the new fuel pump assembly, from RockAuto, including a new Knock Sensor:
...in fact, this thread is a Binnacle to keep up with our "KiaStein" history; if you take a look, you'll see that this thread has kept updated for more than a decade so far.
Besides this web forum, I've been posting, sharing my inventions, creations, adaptations, modifications, retrofittings, repairs, etc... online since 1999 in some other web forums; the reason is to share ideas for all the people who might benefit from them.
Like me, there are many persons who also contributes with helpful ideas online, which had helped us a lot, so I wanted to do my part, because in order to find useful information, someone have to share it...
Finally there is another reason: This binnacle saves time, because if you want to find the proper part number for a repair, you'll find it written here, along with detailed photos of all the procedures.
I alredy received e-mails, private messages and posts with thanks from people that, after digging online, found the answer to their mechanical problems, on my threads, on different web forums... even on web pages.
That exactly is all I want, a simple thank.
I don't want to sound arrogant, but here is an example:
I was well aware of your long work on the forum here. I'm sorry if my post was not entirely clear to you. I was making comment(in FUN) about the sales brochure pics posted and the fact of your other recent posting about doings during the Covid pandemic.
I WISH our NY rust belt area was not so harsh to the metal of our cars where I live, it's rare to find a daily driven vehicle in running condition more than 15yrs. old. Keep up your great postings!

She plays complicated songs from Zelda, Final Fantasy and others alike.
She is a young kid, so I am pretty astonished, and Glad.
Besides that, we all are locked at home in my Li'l...
I had not driven the Kia for three days, last time was when taking the dog to the park.
This morning I had gone about 1/4 mile to the stop sign and heard a loud (I mean LOUD) explosion.
Pulled over and got out of the car to see what happened.
Nothing seen until I opened the back door and some...
