My Kia is giving trouble...

Kia ceed 1.6 diesel estate 2012. Engine management light came on and showed 'fuel restriction'. I changed the fuel filter and cleaned the tank. Light went off, I put diesel in and 3 days later the light came back on saying the same thing. Any ideas of what the problem might be?

Our answer:

Hi Anthony,

It sounds to us that the fuel supply is being restricted by the engine control unit because of another issue - i.e. it's in a sort of 'limp home' mode. You should get a good mechanic to plug the car into a diagnostic computer to find out what errors are being thrown up.
