Question about 2000 Kia Sportage
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?
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).

there is a splice for fuel injectors at the front of the fuel rail conduit and electric tape will need to be removed to see if it is ok then clean up all engine grounds and ecm grounds on passenger side kick panel if this doesnt help check coils and crank sensor
