SOURCE: Kia Sportage slight missfire (intermittant)

This car should still be under warranty. If I had to venture a guess based on experience, I would say that the insulators on the coil packs might be leaking. Take it into your nearest dealer and see what they will do. Under warranty they should also cover a rental car. Let me know and I can see what else I can do for you.

My 01 kia sportage makes a ticking noise under the hood when it is running ?

Check to see if there is any wobble in the crankshaft pulley, it should be spinning straight and true. If it begins to wobble, you may hear a ticking noise, a loss in gas mileage, and later the tick will become a knock. I had a similar issue with my 2001 Kia Sportage, and it turned out to be the crankshaft woodruff key.
This caused a miss-alignment which altered the correct timing, which in turn was causing the knocking, reduced MPG's, hesitation upon acceleration, and a slow return to idle RPM's. If this turns out to be your problem, the correct way to repair it is to replace the crankshaft, woodruff key, and possibly the pulley gear. Another option is a rebuilt, or crate engine, neither option is cheap. I chose a third option which some have claimed to have exceeded 60,000 miles using a carefully crafted, tightly fit, secondary woodruff key, and carefully bond the key in place, the gear to the shaft, all using JB Weld high temp two part epoxy, and let cure for 48 hrs. In my case so far so good. Gas mileage went from 12-MPG's to 19-MPGs, acceleration's back, and hoping for the best.

99 kia sportage sputtering under acceleration

Hi Missippirebe, I think you should replace the fuel filter and if the problem persists check fuel pump pressure. It should be at around 3.7 bar. Regards John

Hesitation on acceleration pulls down on hills it is cold blooded and lack of power

My brand new kia sportage 2L purchased in January 2010 gave me problems from the start. First gas tank was squeezed sometime before and vehicle kept running out of gas even though gas gauge showing gas inside. Dealer replaced gas tank. More persistent problem is the vehicle hesitates to accelerate especially if not driven for about three hours or so and when on an incline. Went back to dealer on several occasions but no solution. any ideas?
