Question about 1996 Kia Sportage
1996 KIA sportage.I changed the plugs and plug wires. I installed a new fuel pump relay in the eng. compartment. Installed a new air filter. I checked the timing belt, it looks brand new. The only electrical reading I get is low and I think it's for the fuel gauge. I don't get 12 volts for the fuel pump. I don't have a wire diagram to tell me what the electrical readings should be. I did check the fuel pump fuse, it's good. I pulled the fuel pump and touched it with 12 volts, the pump ran but I didn't have it in fuel to insure it was moving fuel. Help please!!
Ok, I have a couple of questions that will help me get the correct answer to you:

there is a splice for fuel injectors at the front of the fuel rail conduit and electric tape will need to be removed to see if it is ok then clean up all engine grounds and ecm grounds on passenger side kick panel if this doesnt help check coils and crank sensor

hi this sounds like it could be a couple of things, first the obvious have you checked the fuse? or it might be the relay in the fuse box might need replacing, and the fuel sender unit in the fuel tank, you also can check out the wires going to the sender unit, sometimes you can find these under the rear seat or in the boot/trunk area might be a simple case of one of the wires have come adrift there is a couple of things to check before having the sender unit replaced or the Gage..hope that helps

CHECK YOUR COOLANT FAN AND MAKE SURE WHEN YOU ARE AT OPERATING TEMPERATURE THE YOU CAN HEAR IT . AND ALSO CHECK TO SEE IF YOUR THERMASTAT IS STICKING CHECK AND MAKE SURE AT OPERATING TEMPERATURE THAT YOUR UPPER RAD. HOSE AND LOWER RADIATOR HOSE ARE ABOUT THE SAME . MAKE SURE ONE IS NOT COOL AND THE OTHER HOT IF SO THERMASTAT . AND CHECK COOLANT LEVEL. I WOULD START THERE

No its not a very common problem in kia,but this problem is seen in all brand/models of car.The error codes are indicating.Coil pack and spark plug fault.------ There are a lot of causes of engine misfiring, but the most common cause is bad spark plugs or spark plug wires and a worn coil pack. When one of these causes occurs it will affect air/fuel mixture firing inside the engines cylinder.The first thing to do to fix a car with engine misfiring is to replace the spark plug and the spark plug wires, replacing this parts usually fix the problem. However, if engine misfiring remains then the next part to be replace is the coil pack.-------.Also try cleaning the fuel injectors,and spark plug wires.IF the spark plug wires seems wet or moisture got collected on them,Clean then and dry them then recheck.But most probably,the coil pack and spark plug wires needs to be replaced.There are two things one there is misfire and other the codes that are also indicating.So this parts are to be replaced to solve the problem.-----------This should help.Thanks.Helpmech.
