Question about 2001 Kia Sportage
2001 kia sportage has an automatic tansmission, RWD, 4 cylinder.
i was driving at 65-70 MPH and it seemed like it wasnt getting gas
(i had a full tank) so i shifted into neutral and reved the engine, no problem, i shifted back into drive and it felt like it wasnt getting gas again. I pulled over checked oil, water, and transmission fluids and everything was fine. i shut the vehicle off waited a few minutes and started it back up. reved the engine in park, ran fine, threw it in drive and drove with no problems. soon after it felt like it was running out of gas (sputtering along and idleing irradicly ) its starts at about
5000 RPM and slowly works its way down to around 2500 RPM. it hasnt died yet.
can you give me any ideas.?
There only one problem wrong.You dont let your transmission warm up.You transmission has you warm up just like the motor.Try this and i promise when you take off it will shift like no other
