Question about 2001 Kia Sportage

1 Answer

Car won't start

I have a 2001 Kia Sportage and one day I was driving it and then all of a sudden it just shut down. It still has gas in it but it won't start and it does not sound like the fuel pump is working. I don't know what exactly is wrong and can't move it.

I would have someone you know take the front timing belt cover off and check that first. My 2001 just did the same thing last week and sure enough its the timing belt. I hope this will help.

Most mechanic shops would be able to check the fuel pressure coming from your fuel pump. Before you do that, try replacing your fuel filter. If your fuel filter has gotten clogged, there may be enough resistance to kill the motor. It is possible that you have some other obstruction in your fuel system, like a clogged fuel line that will also cause this problem.
