Question about 1998 Kia Sportage
Hi,Having problems with my 98 Kia Sportage Sedan with high revving .I took it to a Kia dealer but they couldn't find anything wrong with my car,tested motor,throttle cable and sensor light but nothing seems to be wrong with them???It's doesn't happen all the time it's only happened about 5 times over a 2 week period it's unpredictable you don't know when it's going to happen.A couple times it happen first thing in the morning and just revs right out like it's going to blow up and that's with know pressure on the gas pedal,and other times it's happen in the afternoon,same thing it did back fire once only.There know warning lights coming on the dash.Could it be a knock sensor switch.Or bad fuel.Any ideas it scares me to drive my car dont know if its going to get stuck on full the gas pedal and i have a crash!!!PLEASE!!!! :-(

Sounds like a faulty engine warning light and a problem with one of your vacuum hoses. This is difficult to find. Probable just an old cracked hose or loose connection. Propose this to your dealer. Just keep taking it back and tell them to check all of the vacuum hoses and the computer. Good Luck

Engine check light comes on - defect of a range of Sportages - manufacturer should repair it. Check the recalls on Kia Sportage. My vehicle had to get an entirely new engine. This is after the vehicle refused eventually to start.

It sounds like you have a fuel pump issue. when the fuel pump fails you will not usually get a code, all the things you have replaced so far should have been lead to by a code. It is not usually a good idea to guess at automotive repairs. The next time it stalls, listen carefully to see if you can hear the fuel pump running.

Need a repair shop to diagnose it
You never should have thrown one part at it.
That is a Wish & Hope-- Push & Poke Diagnostic Theory,
that only takes your money & you replace every part,none
of them being tested or bad
