Come along with Eric O. at the SMA shop as he has a look at a Kia Rondo V-6 that was dropped off with customer complain of an "extended crank time" or a "hard to start" after it has sat about 5 minutes. We quickly narrow down the issue as a fuel delivery problem, but what is the cause? Stick around to find out! -Enjoy!

    I like your video, you did well.

  4. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars Kevin Voss says:

    No you fixed it better than factory! It was made by koreans and fixed by americans.

    hello.
    I have to change my fuel pump too. Right now it is about an hour away from me. I just got the pump in and I have to go there to install it. I want to make sure I bring the right tools with me, so can you tell me what size/type of chisel you used?
    I wish I could measure the diameter of the little holes so I could make my own spanner tool, but I am not near the car. SO it would really help me if you could tell me what chisel you used.

    thank you friends for take a time for make this video. you help me good bless you!!

  7. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars Tom Beilman says:

    Same fix as the older Jeep Cherokee, nice diagnostic

  8. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars Robert Gary says:

    I’ve replaced a number of pumps due to drain back. Always wondered if someone made a duck valve that went right on the fuel module it would fix it without pulling it from the tank.

  9. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars Swansong 007 says:

    You are what i consider to be old school mechanic. Get over the problem and fix it rather than immediately fit new new new.

  10. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars Paublus Americanus AMERICANUS says:

    If this were my car I would rather have the metal clamp than a new fuel pump.

  11. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars tyrone elliott says:

    Seems as tho the hose clamp is a better design than factory 🤷

  12. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars Craig Hopple says:

    Atta DAD…get a move on!!👍

  13. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars Phyllis Mitchell says:

    What year was that Rondo?

  15. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars WouterB76 says:

    No skipping ahead here.

  16. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars TUN3PLUG says:

    Yeah i had to look that up too when i first saw the title. Thought it was a fake one like the Ford Jabroni lol

  17. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars Mark Ballenger says:

    I would try a plastic glue and the clamp because you're going to have to throw it away anyways so what have you got to lose

  18. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars Mark Ballenger says:

    I primed the pump false positive it was corrosion on battery n distributor wow !on my older nissan so now I'm really confused how adding gas while starting helped it with low spark

  19. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars jon mullaly says:

    more "well I'll be jiggered" comments

  20. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars Mike Mardis says:

    C’mon! If this wasn’t your used car guy, you would’ve called the pump a long time ago; especially during 9-5!

  21. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars Larry Hoffman says:

    Thanks! I just tore into my 08 Kia Rondo. That fitting was cracked, just like the one you worked on. I decided to risk it with the worm screw clamp like you did. It starts up just fine now. The hardest part was screwing off that 5 1/2" ring.

  22. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars dude5576 says:

    Put it on the bent dude

  23. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars Richard Bennett says:

    Kia junk especially rondo when call a rondo in a rollover accident a kia rondover

  24. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars Rodrigo Ramirez says:

    Me watching this video not skipping ahead 👁👄👁

  25. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars Rodrigo Ramirez says:

    Not too long ago I was working on my car changing out the front struts. Then latter on I noticed my car taking too long to start. I’m wondering if I might of hit something in accident. Idk I need help

  26. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars Steve Kendrick says:

    My Siveradro has the exact same issue.

  27. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars gary willcox says:

    outta here like pregnant ladies belly button

  28. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars Fish Hooker says:

    I have a 07 Rondo with the 4 banger with 186,000 miles and you can hear the fuel prime before starting. You need a spanner like the one for a Milwaukee angle grinder to get the fuel pump ring off. They are good running cars. I put 80 miles a day on mine.

  29. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars Ric Robinson says:

    I never skip ahead. I wait for you're comments.

  30. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars Ric Robinson says:

    Get a bigger hammer! Love it! If it sticks, force it! If it breaks, it needed replacing anyway!!

  31. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars guy azbell says:

    Mr O great fuel pump issue resolved but lay off the cokes bad for your kidneys, have a great movie night.

  32. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars Dan Buffa says:

    i have an 07 santa fe at the shop doing the same thing. if its the same problem im gonna hose clamp it. thanks!

  33. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars Chuma Doshi says:

    …"in case she squirts"…

  34. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars Lucky Baldwin says:

    Had a landlord named 'Rondo" once. He was missing a few hose clamps too.

  35. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars Barry Thomas says:

    Plastic crap

  36. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars Frank Thomas says:

    I work at a used car lot. with my boss that "temporary" fix would be permanent.

  37. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars bubbaflavel says:

    Id leave it alone. Call it fixed.

  38. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars Russell Booth says:

    In my Holden Commodore I've had trouble with even the Fuel Miser brand of fuel pump sender unit which was worth over $300 AUD brand new but somehow they knocked it down to $100 AUD.

    I think that the fuel gauge wiper was faulty so I ordered a no name $75 AUD fuel sender unit on eBay & it lost pressure to the point of 50 PSI so I fitted the Fuel Miser fuel pressure regulator as the new one failed,the problem is not long after fitting it that was the same so I ordered the PR217 type of fuel pressure regulator from China which has worked good ever since setting its pressure to 60 PSI.

    The problems I was having is bad fuel economy as the fuel injectors weren't atomizing the fuel properly & I was getting P0171 & P0174 lean codes as well as the long term fuel trims being 25% on both engine banks.

    Now it's at 2.3% on the left bank & 3.1% on the right hand engine bank which is much better.

    People might blame me using E10 fuel in it when Holden says that Fuel can be used in my car !

  39. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars Ed Rodrigues says:

    So here I am, it's Midnight and I'm watching SMA. I'm all tensed like watching a mystery-thriller. Will he Fix It ??
    Is this Mentally Healthy ?? Am I OK ?

  40. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars BigLoo says:

    Not gonna lie, I probably would have left it like that with the hose clamp 😇

  41. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars Harry LaFountain says:

    Lol the used car guys gonna call that a fix 😂😂😂😂

  42. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars kenneth bode says:

    I'd be surprised if the used car dealer wanted the pump changed

  43. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars seeya205 says:

    It's only factory specs it you put the retaining nut on in the exact same position you took if off, otherwise it won't be torqued right and the marks will be meaningless. I think it's on tight enough though!

  44. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars Gary Alford says:

    Why can't American cars and trucks have excess covers !!!

  45. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars William White says:

    The used car dealer will be very proud of that repair. I'm sure he didn't replace the pump. And he probably didn't need to.
