Loosen the belt on the alternator and see if it will turn! A siezed bearing could be the prob!

    Your prob could be so many things! See if you can turn the engine over by hand. this is not a simple task. You may need to use a socket wrench on the front pulley nut, Do Not force it!!! turn it one way and should it become hard, turn the other way. Listen for clunks or nasty sounds. If any, you have a major prob! If not, do the one second battery check, turn the headlights on and try the horn. The sound will tell you the state of the battery. [If fact, you should do this first!] Weak sound, recharge or replace the battery. Sounds normal, check the connections at battery and starter. Besure starter bolts are not loose! Really need more info to offer any more help. Frankster

If it wont turn over and all that happens is the starter makes noise, it could be an alternator issue. If your alternator is bad, then you battery wont recharge and eventually it wont have enough power to restart the engine.

2002 kia sportage overheated now it will not start motor acts like it is not getting spark

This is a long shot, but try disconnecting the battery for about a half hour then reconnect.
This will reset the computer which may have disabled the car.
I am not aware that this model has a shut off switch like some cars.
So, just my 2 cents.

On the kia 2002 sportage i spent 15 Litres of fuel for 100KM is that normal?and can you tell me the normal Litres of gas foor 100KM on the kia 2002 sportage

That fuel consumption is a bit heavy, but not excessive, depending on the driving conditions. In heavy traffic and slow town driving with a lot of stop starts it would be acceptable but on the open road in 2 wheel mode it would be excessive. Kia do not seem to manage much better than about 8-10 l/100km, even on their sedans.

2003 kia sportage starting problems

It could be a problem with the fuel pump or igntion module/ coil pack. The next time it stops, fuel pressure needs to be checked and have the ignition coil pack and module tested at a local parts store.
