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.

How to change plugs on 02 kia sportage


  • 1

    Keep a regular schedule for inspecting the spark plugs on your 2002 Kia Sportage. According to the official 2002 Kia Sportage owner's manual, spark plugs and ignition wires should be inspected every two years or 48,000 miles, whichever comes first.

  • 2

    Let your 2002 Kia Sportage sit for a few hours before opening the engine compartment. You want to make sure that the engine is cool before you begin working on it.

  • 3

    Pop open the hood of your Sportage and locate the ignition wires, which will be attached to the top of your engine. The 2002 Kia Sportage has a four-cylinder engine, meaning there are four spark plugs each attached to an ignition wire. The ignition wires run from the engine to the fuse box, which is located in the left side of the engine compartment.

  • 4

    Inspect the ignition wires of your 2002 Kia Sportage. These wires will need to be replaced if they appear worn.

  • 5

    Disconnect the ignition wire to your spark plugs. Grab the rubber boot located near the base of the wire and pull upward instead of yanking on the wire. Remove only one wire at a time, or mark the wires with a colored Sharpie marker before disconnecting all of them. Improperly reconnecting the ignition wires can seriously affect the performance of your Kia Sportage.

  • 6

    Attach the spark plug socket to your socket wrench. Use the socket wrench to remove the spark plug from the top of the engine's cylinder.

  • 7

    Inspect the spark plug. There will be some soot, but if the spark plug is completely covered in soot, it needs to be replaced.

  • 8

    Position your replacement spark plug in place and secure it with the spark plug socket on your socket wrench. Be careful not to overtighten the spark plug after it has been snuggly fitted.

  • 9

    Position the rubber boot of the proper ignition wire in place above the spark plug and insert it with your hands. Close the hood of your 2002 Kia Sportage

    Changed timing belt on 2001 kia sportage but still runs rough


    I would check the connectors on the coil packs, spark plugs and wires and replace them if they at all seem worn or tired. My 2000 sportage ran rough so I replaced the fuel filter, coil packs, spark plugs and wires, cleaned out the IAC valve, TPS, throttle body and intake tube, tightened the screws on the fuel pump access door under the right rear seat and cleaned the ground wire and the contact surface and I added 1 ground wire from the block to the firewall and 1 from the valve cover to the firewall. Your timing is more than likely right where it needs to be but the ignition may be slightly missing from a bad coil pack, dirty or fouled plugs or a bad plug wire.

    I have a 2001 kia sportage. it has miss in engine on #3 spark plug. i have replaced spark plugs, wires and both coils. still has misfires on #3 cyl. anything else i should check.


    you could have a bad injector or vacuum leak near #3. or you could have leaking head gasket. or you could have a burnt valve. testing will confirm what is actually wrong, it takes diagnostic equipment to illiminate what isnt the problem

    Runs & idles rough has no power when cold gets better when warm


    Spluttering and missing is usually one of two things Fuel or spark ?
    Fuel problems will be traced to 1/ in line fuel filters .. 2/ tank run low on petrol throwing dirt and grit into tank filter ( if Fitted ) and blocked or restricted injectors a good fuel additve sometimes cures that problem , but replacement is a far better option .
    Poor spark plugs breaking down under preassure oiled plugs due to overfilling or incorrect fuel mixtures .. poor or cracked distributor caps dirty or damaged rotor arms in said cap .. leaking HT leads damaged by rubbing and contact with hot engine causing sparks to fly to nearest earth disrupting the spark and ignition timing ... hope this helps Regards vortash
