Question about 2000 Kia Sportage
Car was just in for oil change and hose to fuel regulator was changes as smelling gas inside car. That was Janurary 5, 2009. Also asked mechanic to change plugs which he said didn't need done. January 23, 2009 car is running rough like misfiring so had codes checked had these three codes show up:
worried about driving car now till can figure this out. Only car to get around. Car has 100,000 miles on it. Just had fuel pump in gas tank fixed last year in 2008. Car sputters and acts like it is ready to die when at light or stop sign. Had to put it in Neutral when stopped... seemed to stop most of problem till put it in Drive to take off .
PO303 # 3 cylinder miss fire: check ign coil and wires,
PO440: looks like perhaps something to do with the fuel line change! i would look further into it before traveling far perhaps a really well reputed garage can help?????

Remove and reinstall the gas cap, clear the code, and drive for a day and see if the codes come back.
Inspect the EVAP system for cuts/holes in tubes/hoses
Inspect for damaged or disconnected hoses around the Evap purge solenoid
Check and/or replace the sensor
Check and/or replace the purge valve
Have a professional use a smoke machine to detect leaks
