SOURCE: problem with kia sportage no
i just put a new fuel pump in a 97 sportage with the same problems but now it starts and idles just fine but as soon is itry to give it some gas it stalls out and starts backfiring through the intake,i put new plugs and wires on after that started up better but still same problem, me thinks its the kickdown cable for the transmission is causing it because the gas pedal is tight but the kickdown cable hooked up to the throttle body is stuck out so i think the transmission is sensing wideopen throttle therefore its advancing the timing way too much and causing it to stall, or it could just need a new timing belt, but i took a peek at it and saw my camshift timing marks were in the right spot and lined up together however, i dint see the crankshaft timing mark so i dont know yet but once i fgure it out i will def let you know because its been in my bay for 3 days now and its pissing me off hope this helps a little

Fuel pump is located inside the fuel tank access cover location. Here's the details:
WARNING The fuel assembly is easily damaged. Use care when removing the assembly from the tank.

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.

That depends on if you are replacing it before or after it stops working. The engine is an interference engine and if the timing belt goes out, it could damage the head and cost you around $1500. before it goes out you should be able to get it done for about $500 plus parts.
P.S. get the water pump replaced at the same time for a little extra as long as the front of the engine is being taken apart.
