Question about 1999 Kia Sportage

1 Answer

Hard to start

My car is getting the power. Just have to crank it several times before it will start. Find it happens more when the temp is cooler out. Seems like a fuel issue. What should I look at first?

When starting vehicle,the cooler fan comes on and the vehicle wont start.When this happens the engine check light does not come on.

Good morning I don't know what you are working on but possibly your ignition switch, that would explain why when you turn it off and then turn it back on it works. I don't know if this helps you or not. I know when your switch is going out you will get power to some things power not to others. I hope this helps you good luck

1999 gmc jimmy starting problems

Sounds like the brushes in the starter are not making contact, could be sticking or gummed up. Could also be the key switch or the neutral safety switch.
You would need to rig up a wire going down to the purple wire on the starter and check it for power when the engine will not crank. If it has power odds are the starter is the problem.

Where is the ignition coil located on a 1998 chrysler cirrus lxi. I have changed my plugs and fuel filter and my car still won't stay started. So I need to know where the ignition coil is located on my...

The coil is built into the distributor, along with the cam sensor. When one of these wont start and it has fuel pressure, the first thing you need to check is the timing belt. You do this by aligning the timing marks on the crank and camshaft. If the cam timing is good then the number one failure item is the distributor. Like I said the coil, and cam sensor are built into the distributor and they are not sold separately. The next most common failure item is the crank sensor. It is located in the top of the bell housing. Most of the time one of these engines quits the distributor is the reason. Ebay is a great source for these, the price is much better than any where else I have found.

Sounds like it could be your coolant temp sensor. try disconecting the sensor in the morning before you crank it up. if it starts right away thats your problem

Hi i have a 20 passat 20v turbo ,runs good,dont

good likely hood that your oil cooler is leaking oil into coolant this is something you want to replace as soon as possible. you will have to flush your coolant system several times to get as much of the oil out as possible. if you wait you will have severe temp issues as well as not heat due to a clogged heater core. and that is very hard to replace. To flush system hook garden hose to the larger hose of the coolant reservoir get car up to temp. keep idle up a little. get large bucket from the smaller hose that goes into the reservoir hook small hose to it and let it empty into bucket keep hose running thru all the time. before that though replace oil cooler. also replace coolant reservoir as well. or oil will contaminate new coolant. good luck

1998 Jeep Wrangler hard starting when engine hot

I know that a lot of starters will not start quickly and draw a lot of power if the engine is up to temp. Try a higher CCA battery (Cold Cranking Amp) Battery, your bat may be to low of a rating. If it has a remotely mounted solenoid, not on the starter. If it does it may be mounted somewhere that it gets to hot, relocate to a cooler portion of the engine bay.
