 Description of the problemOver the last 6 months my kia has started to act like it is going to die or stall while driving and/or idling. This has happened at various different speeds. I took my kia into the service department and explained what was happening. They ran some diagnostic tests and stated that they could not replicate it. The check engine light never comes on. In december, i received a recall notice for the engine control unit. This recall was completed and now less than a month later the shaking like my car is going to stall is still happening intermittently. Recently, the steering wheel started sticking. While i am driving the steering wheel makes me over adjust to keep the car going straight. You can feel the sticking as you have to constantly adjust the steering wheel right or left. This happens every time i am driving, whether on the highway or side streets.
