Question about 1998 Kia Sportage
Something is draining the battery on my 1998 Kia sportage. Tested the alternator, starter and battery.
The #1 most common cause is lights being left on or lights coming on at night when the temperature drops. Lighted visors are a common problem.

happy hunting and good luck
btw thats why all cars come with a parking or hand break dont be afraid to use it b4 you put your car in park it will save you a lot of problems in your tranny like bent parking pins from some moron bumping your car or just a hill or incline.

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.
