Question about 1998 Kia Sportage
It's been sitting for about 6 months now. I put new gas in it and I changed the plugs in it. I know it's getting spark. I can use starting fluid on it and it fires right up and runs a second or two. I don't know how to check to see if the fuel pump is working.
It was running when I parked it, but now all it wants to do is turn over...
Start with the fuel pump relay. (swap the relay with another one, like the fan relay) If it won't start, Take the fuel line off the fuel filter and turn the key on and off. each time the key is turned on, the pump will run for aprox.3 sec. There may be fuel pumping out of the line so be careful.If no fuel, it's most likley the pump. Drop the tank and check the wires for fire and good connection. You dont want to replace a pump for no reason.
