check the idle air control valve. if that's faulty, it can cause such symptoms as described. if that's OK. do check the transmission oil. if it's low or there's a leak, causes problems as well. I hope this helps.

Back window wont roll up service manual 2000 kia sportage manual

You'll need to lower the rear door and take the inside trim off using a small screw driver to pry off the clips around the side. Once inside the door you'll probably find that the window slipped out of the track and needs to be popped back in. Could be a two person job.
