Question about 1995 Kia Sportage
I have a 1995 Kia sportage. I just replaced the spark plugs and the coil/distrubutor because it was only running on two cylinders. after doing that it still was jerking around so i put dry gas in and then it ran fine for a while and then started jerking around again and then ran fine I think i may have gotten bad gas but something else is seriously wrong. After getting gas the rpm gage went all over the place after driving a few miles and lost most power it drives but dosent want to go very fast then it will all of a sudden drive fine. Could this be my gas pump? Fuel Filter?

Rule of thumb...unless you get a better answer: look for a couple of wires on a small plate that is in the airflow of the fan on the heater/ac unit. The resistor pack is always air cooled by the fan.

Many of the Kia sportages have a problem with the coils.
There are 2 coils for each 2 cyl and they are located under the middle platic cap on the valve cover.
These coils will set a check engine light that blinks when misfiring and stays on steady when the motor is running smooth. Autozone or Advance auto have a scanner that can check all engine functions and will show a problem with # 2 and 4 cyl.
The coil packs are $39.00 to replace but check the codes first

If your refering to the light on top of the dash that says "psgr air bag not connected" here;s the deal.
The module is activated when someone sits in the seat. Turn the key on and the notification will light. Go around to the psgr side of the car and sit in the seat and the light should go out.

Keep a regular schedule for inspecting the spark plugs on your 2002 Kia Sportage. According to the official 2002 Kia Sportage owner's manual, spark plugs and ignition wires should be inspected every two years or 48,000 miles, whichever comes first.
Let your 2002 Kia Sportage sit for a few hours before opening the engine compartment. You want to make sure that the engine is cool before you begin working on it.
Pop open the hood of your Sportage and locate the ignition wires, which will be attached to the top of your engine. The 2002 Kia Sportage has a four-cylinder engine, meaning there are four spark plugs each attached to an ignition wire. The ignition wires run from the engine to the fuse box, which is located in the left side of the engine compartment.
Inspect the ignition wires of your 2002 Kia Sportage. These wires will need to be replaced if they appear worn.
Disconnect the ignition wire to your spark plugs. Grab the rubber boot located near the base of the wire and pull upward instead of yanking on the wire. Remove only one wire at a time, or mark the wires with a colored Sharpie marker before disconnecting all of them. Improperly reconnecting the ignition wires can seriously affect the performance of your Kia Sportage.
Attach the spark plug socket to your socket wrench. Use the socket wrench to remove the spark plug from the top of the engine's cylinder.
Inspect the spark plug. There will be some soot, but if the spark plug is completely covered in soot, it needs to be replaced.
Position your replacement spark plug in place and secure it with the spark plug socket on your socket wrench. Be careful not to overtighten the spark plug after it has been snuggly fitted.
Position the rubber boot of the proper ignition wire in place above the spark plug and insert it with your hands. Close the hood of your 2002 Kia Sportage
