Question about 2000 Kia Sportage

1 Answer

Randomly wont start

I have a 2000 Kia Sportage Hard top; sometimes it just won't start. I've taken it to 2 mechanics who have both said there was nothing wrong wiht the car. Occassionally (average of once a week) everything will turn on as though it's about to start and then won't completely turn over. It sounds like a car when it needs to settle because you pumped the gas too many times but I don't have to pump the gas on it unless it's having a moment and wont start; and sometimes it wont even start then. Do you have any suggestions?

    When you have this no start does the engine turn over normally but just not start up? Any trouble codes in the memory?

Well the starter is 17 years old. Nippon Denso and Hitachi starters are prone to low voltage at the solenoid signal wire (black with white stripe).

2000 Kia Sportage won't start


My guess would be something has happened to the fuel pump in the tank. I would make sure the pump has voltage when cranking the engine to verify.

I disconnected the battery on my 2005 kia sportage now it won't start


A mechanic would check for voltage at the battery cables (dirty?) the starter and the key switch. Also check the ground connections.

My 2000 kia sportage is having fuel pump problems sometimes the fuel pump doesnt pump at all. ive checked the ground on the fuel pump, the fuse is good, and i dont know if theres a fuel cut off switch....


it sounds like the problem is the pump itself.you will probably have to have the pump replaced to correct the problem.this is how a bad pump acts when its worn out and needs replacing.replace the fuel filter at the same time

evap purge valve fault is your p0443
p1693 is manu. controlled aux input output fault
p1693 is a code for an open or short to ground for the check engine light
does it light up when key is on? if so then it is a left over code from some previous repair attemt
the evap code wont prevent starting
check for broken timing belt
check for fuel in tank and that it has proper fuel pressure
