SOURCE: starting probems on a 1998 kia sportage no power to fuel pump

Easy to test pump. Takes two people. Disconnect fuel line at carburator and hold end in a catch can. Turn over engine. Does fuel come out. Yes, problem is not fuel pump. No, proplem may be pump or might be clogged fuel line or a fuse. rule out fuses first (cheapest) fuse will be labeled fuel pump. Don't jump your fuel pump while it's in the car. OK to jump it on a test bench but in the car full of fuel is a bad combination with sparks....

My 1999 kia sportage cranks but will not start

check all fuses are good then if you have some intake cleaner or brake cleaner where the hose from the airfilter goes to the motor shoot some in the intake through the hose and does it start up this means fuel problem 80% points to fuel pump located in the rear under the back seatsthere is a little piece of carpet in a square just lift it up and remove the 4 screws this gives you access to fuel pump if it doesnt start no fire spark you have to test for spark from the coils under the intake remove cover and test if spark and fuel ok timing belt jumpped good luck

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.

99 kia sportage sputtering under acceleration

Hi Missippirebe, I think you should replace the fuel filter and if the problem persists check fuel pump pressure. It should be at around 3.7 bar. Regards John

1999 sportage dies when low on fuel but still plenty of gas....doesn't die when full Rough idle

mcdevito75 here, It could be a dirty screen on the fuel pump itself, or a weak fuel pump. Have your local shop check it out. At the very least have the shop replace the fuel filter.

1999 kia sportage fuel pump problem

Tell your husband to try running a jumper wire from the fuse panel. Make sure the fuse is only hot when the ignition is on. Run the the jumper wire directly to the pump, down the frame rail, and making sure to secure it. That should resolve any problems with the fuel pump, that is, if he's checked all fuses and breakers going to the pump. I hope this is helpful. Please rate my solution, thanks.
