Sounds like your tps(throttle position sensor) might be faulty

The radiator thermostat may be stuck. I've had that before. Just about any auto part store should have an employee that can help if you need it. Its a quick and easy fix/replacement. You'll definitely want to check your radiator coolant level as well.

SOURCE: 1999 KIA Sportage idling too fast

You might want to go to your local AutoZ to have them hook it up to a code reader and give you any trouble codes that may exist, but chances are you problem is going to lie with one of three things. The first thing I would check is the Mass Airflow Sensor(MAS). The MAS sensor is usually connected to the plastic breather tube that runs to the air filter. The next thing I would check would be your Idle-Air Control Valve. Not too sure where Kia put their IACV's at, but AZ's website should have vehicle specific repair info through Alldata for your Kia. The last thing that I would check if you still haven't fixed the problem would be your EGR valve. Other than that, the only other thing that I can think of would be your throttle positioning sensor, but this possibility is least likely. Hope this helps guide you in the right direction. Have a great day!

For that many codes I would refer you to a bulletin covering the 123 and 124 connectors. This bulletin has instructions on how to upgrade these 2 connectors which connect the engine to the ECM. The connectors are located under the intake manifold towards the firewall. You need to remove the battery, pull the connectors apart, give the male side a slight twist, then you add Stabulent 22 to the connectors and reconnect. The dealerships also add some clips to hold the connectors together better. This task is not an easy one due to the location of the connector. I have done it many times in the past and this helped many of my costomers. Anither thing to check is the continuity to ground at the MAF. This also can indicate bad connection throughout the engine harness. to upgrade this connection, clean the ground connections at the battery and under the battery tray. these simple uperations should have been made into normal maintenance for the 95 - 99 Sportages.

SOURCE: I have a 2002 Kia Sportage - idle slow when stopping at lights

Even though the fuel filter and pump are easy to replace, I would start with the IAC sensor first. It is easier to get to and is cheaper than the other two if you can find one at a wrecking yard (should be around $20). This sensor is the Idle Air Control sensor, and the computer decides how much throttle to give at idle from the readings of the sensor. If it is bad your car will idle poorly or not at all.

You can verify this two simple ways:

1. Disconnect the sensor completely and see if anything changes. If you get the same issue, then it's probably the sensor. If different then it could be fuel delivery.

2. With it all hooked up; try throttling the engine yourself at 1000-1200 rpm and see if it is smooth. If it is then it is probably the sensor. If not then could be the fuel delivery.

The sensor is under the silver and black, plastic KIA cover over the engine (4 small nuts to remove), and is center above the engine on the front side of the intake pipe.

The part looks like this:

If it seems to still be fuel delivery, the filter is (facing the engine from the front of the car) down to the left and toward the back attached to the fender well (Just to the right of and below the battery)

SOURCE: hold keeps coming on in my 99 kia sportage what

Look on the shifter lever,just bellow the push button. There is another push button there. That's the one you press or depress to keep the transmission on 3rd. gear. Just press it again and the hold light should come off.

2001 kia sportage will brake lit switch cau the truck stall whil driving


Yes, If your idle RPM is too low it can kill the engine due to the high current of the brake lights will cause a stall.

Most cars use an RPM idle of 750 to 775 RPM. Check your manual then increase your idle a little.
Hope this helps.
