Question about 2002 Kia Sportage
How do I change the oyxgen sensor on an Kia Sportage?
SOURCE: 2000 kia sportage ex, 4 cyl.
For that many codes I would refer you to a bulletin covering the 123 and 124 connectors. This bulletin has instructions on how to upgrade these 2 connectors which connect the engine to the ECM. The connectors are located under the intake manifold towards the firewall. You need to remove the battery, pull the connectors apart, give the male side a slight twist, then you add Stabulent 22 to the connectors and reconnect. The dealerships also add some clips to hold the connectors together better. This task is not an easy one due to the location of the connector. I have done it many times in the past and this helped many of my costomers. Anither thing to check is the continuity to ground at the MAF. This also can indicate bad connection throughout the engine harness. to upgrade this connection, clean the ground connections at the battery and under the battery tray. these simple uperations should have been made into normal maintenance for the 95 - 99 Sportages.

check both of your fuse panels for a blown fuse. there's 4-5 that control the fuel pump, engine sensors, fuel injectors and such. one of those may be blown and not letting the rest of the system function. one panel is located under hood, and one is under the dash on drivers side. when you take the covers off they have the fuses numbered and tell what they control.

The crankshaft pos. sensor is located on the left "driver" side of the engine on the bellhousing and is retained by a single 10mm bolt.The sensor may be tight,be sure to twist as you pull so that it doesnt break off in the bottom end.
