    My 2002 Kia Sportage 4x4- does fine on short trips, but on 10 miles or longer the engine light comes on and it is sluggish and will just slow down to nothing and I have to pull off of the road. I turn the car off and wait a minute and it starts up and goes fine for 10 miles or so. What is going on.

Code p0038 wont go away and i have replaced the 02 sensors twice on my 2006 kia sportage


Code 038 means the computer is getting a high voltage return in the heater circuit from the O2 sensor mounted after the catalytic converter. The O2 sensors have an internal heater to make them work as soon as you start the engine.
You would need to test the circuit to and from the sensor to find the real problem.

Clean the inside of the MAF sensor with MAF spray, it is made by CRC corp, a MAF will in most cases not set an engine code which turns on the check engine light.

Sluggish performance on 2000 Kia Sportage


My theory is that it could be the injectors clogging. You could first try running a higher octane fuel, then if that doesn't seem to help try using the minimal amount of gas, and add injector cleaner to the tank. If all of this fails to work you can take your vehicle to the dealership where they can run a system analysis on it and help you pinpoint the problem. Hope this was helpful. Please rate my solution, thanks.

Check gngine light


Ok I think you meant code P0171, this means the fuel trim is always lean, you need to check for a engine vacum leak, maybe a cut or damaged PCV hose or any other hose that is in the vaccum system, I have read other Kia owners (Kia Forums, you should join one) reports of this same code, most found it not to be the O2 sensor but a vacuum leak.
