My 1999 Kia Sportage won't start. I put a new fuel pump in replaced the car battery . Need help please...


Im dealing with a similar situation. But have found that I have no spark. By opening the end of the air intake and giving a little squirt of starter fluid and no start. Opened access to FP and pulled a hose. No fuel. So no fuel no spark. reading lots and lots of forums I have come to the conclusion it is either the Cam or the Crank sensor. The crank sensor is easier to get to and cheaper. I am going to check that first.

2000 Kia Sportage won't start


My guess would be something has happened to the fuel pump in the tank. I would make sure the pump has voltage when cranking the engine to verify.

1999 kia sportage engine stopped while driving. now turns over but won't start


check the alternator, have a service shop like an auto parts store run a check, they can do it for free in some places. may also be your battery, can get cleaner and metal wire battery contact cleaner and you can also try putting some water into the battery in the area indicating where to put some water.

Kia sportage fuel gauge unit not working ?


hi this sounds like it could be a couple of things, first the obvious have you checked the fuse? or it might be the relay in the fuse box might need replacing, and the fuel sender unit in the fuel tank, you also can check out the wires going to the sender unit, sometimes you can find these under the rear seat or in the boot/trunk area might be a simple case of one of the wires have come adrift there is a couple of things to check before having the sender unit replaced or the Gage..hope that helps

Please get an expert to check the injector system for you.

This happens when an injector driven engine goes out of fuel.

Next time always watch your fuel guage.
