Question about 2000 Kia Sportage
I put new timing belt / plugs when it turns on it runs like new with lotsa power, but in the morning its hard to start, sometimes i turn the key 3 to 4 times til it fires up. it has a new gas pump and filter 5 months old, like i said when it starts it very powerfull has lotsa pick up speed. its just when is cold in the mornings its hard to start.
Check fuel pressure with a gauge,turn the key in the on position an read pressure ,if pressure goes lets say to 40 or 50 on one key cycle pump is prob. good . if it takes 3 to 4 key cycles to achieve this pressure ,pump is bad or connection in tank is bleeding off over night.
