Where is the distributor cap on a 1998 kia sportage?

the Kia does not have a distributor, let alone a distributor cap, the engine is equiped with a ignation coil at each cylinder, there is a crankshaft and camshaft sensor that send signels to the onboard computer system then the computer sends the signals to the ignation ignator it then sends the signals to the coils at each cylinder. a much better system then a distributor.

My 1995 kia sportage is loosing power, wenever i accelerate it does not pick up speed quickly, so overtaking is a major problem, and the engile idling is too high! past the 1 mark almost 1 and a half. what...

Timing issue needs to be checked out first with a timing gun and maybe adjusted accordingly, There are mivor maintanences that you can do like put injector cleaner into gas tank which will clean your fuel injectors and opens it up so more gas gets into the piston heads. Simple things does wonders. Also you can put a cleaner to where the throttle is at on top of engine so it does not stick. Have you yet put new spark plugs or distributor cap and rotor because if you did would make this same problem with timing. If you changed the distributor cap and rotor and did not replace the old one with the new one in the exact same place is why timing could be off by an hair or two.

Runs & idles rough has no power when cold gets better when warm

Spluttering and missing is usually one of two things Fuel or spark ?
Fuel problems will be traced to 1/ in line fuel filters .. 2/ tank run low on petrol throwing dirt and grit into tank filter ( if Fitted ) and blocked or restricted injectors a good fuel additve sometimes cures that problem , but replacement is a far better option .
Poor spark plugs breaking down under preassure oiled plugs due to overfilling or incorrect fuel mixtures .. poor or cracked distributor caps dirty or damaged rotor arms in said cap .. leaking HT leads damaged by rubbing and contact with hot engine causing sparks to fly to nearest earth disrupting the spark and ignition timing ... hope this helps Regards vortash

Can't find where spark plugs go.

Have you tried tracking the plug wires one end should be on the distributor cap the other on the spark plug.
