2005 KIA Sportage Engine Warning Light and Misfire Problem

I have a 2006 Kia Sportage V6 2.7. I've had it for about 3 months and the Engine warning light comes on followed by misfiring. It usually occurrs when you put the accelerator to the floor quite hard, such as an overtake or picking up speed to join a motorway. The engine light usually goes off if you leave the car for a while and sometimes whilst still driving. I have taken it back to the dealership 4 times now, each time they say they can't find the fault. They have replaced some plugs and leads as the engine code said "pending misfire #3 and #5" however even after this it still happened. They say they have tried a fuel flush, tested fuel lines and the interior of the fuel tank , changed fuel filters etc. and have found no problems. They want to give the car back to me now as they think it is to do with fuel levels. Kia themselves are telling them some **** about it must be because the fuel tank is only quarter full and there being 2 fuels pumps. I've never heard of having to run a car on over half a tank before, it shouldn't happen at all. I don't want to take it back and then find it reoccurs, I just want to leave it withe them until they can say "we found this part was broken and we've replaced it!" no "seems to be ok doesn't seem to be misfiring think we've found it!"

Engine check light comes on - defect of a range of Sportages - manufacturer should repair it. Check the recalls on Kia Sportage. My vehicle had to get an entirely new engine. This is after the vehicle refused eventually to start.

Pending misfire could be attributed to a lot of things. My first guess is plugs and wires, but if they've been replaced that ends there. Fuel pump would be #2 guess; pumps don't need to be broke to start the computer into wildcat throwing codes mode and freaking the driver out. Third guess would be a vacuum leak or evap leak somewhere in the hoses to/from the air box. When problems like these arise with the engine, if you think what does an engine need, you'll solve the problem. The engine needs a correct combination of air and gas and the correct timing of compression and spark to ignite. If one of these is off, you have a nice light on your dash. It goes out for you because the car returns to normal while you're driving, which to me indicates something is about to fail in that system I just described, but works good enough intermittantly to throw the code and also erase it. Look for any loose or disconnected hoses inside the engine, should be a sticker on top of the hood inside that indicates position and placement if you find any.
Good Luck

I have a 2006 KIA Sportage who's check engine light came on. Had the EGR replaced but now the light comes on and can go off for days. Taken it back for a diagnostics check but no problems can be found....


have to put tester on and see what code comes up ... could be anything... bad weather will do it to my car and about 3 days later the light goes out and may stay out for months until the right wind conditions seem to set it off ... Mine is O2 related so I'm thinking the vacuum of a strange wind can starve the engine of o2 at times and when it runs normal long enough the code shuts off.

2000 kia sportage is running rough and bucking


sounds like a misfire problem, may be a spark plug or wire or coil pack, depends on engine type. the first thing would be to go to an auto parts store and have the computer scanned for codes and let me know what the codes are and i will help you further .

The computer system in the Sportage is always monitoring all systems and when there is a problem it stores a code, depending on what the problem is it turns light on, the check engine light, some codes need to the computer to see the problem a few time before light is turned on, a misfire just make the engine light blink, a blinking engine light is to warn you that converter or other emission components may be damaged,

get the codes and write back. good day

2006 kia rio misfire


Could be a weak coil on number 4 cyl.
Switch coils between 3 and 4 and see if the code now reads #3 misfire,then you will know you need a coil.
Maybe the check engine light will stay off after the switch.
