Question about 2002 Kia Sportage

1 Answer

Start up problem

I have a 2002 kia Sportage, I am having problems during start up, sometimes it will start on the first try, other times it may take turning engine over up to 20 times. Not always, but at times you can smell gas during this. It acts like it is not getting enough gas, but smells like it is flooded. I have replaced the fuel relay switch, the fuel filter & the screen/filter in the fuel pump. It does not matter how much fuel is in the tank. This has been happening for about 2 months now. Any advice on what may be the problem?

You need to have the dealer scan the security system module for fault codes or other problems that can cause this. They need to confirm this problem to repair it.

2003 kia sportage starting problems


It could be a problem with the fuel pump or igntion module/ coil pack. The next time it stops, fuel pressure needs to be checked and have the ignition coil pack and module tested at a local parts store.

At times the cars engine will not turn over but all the electrical components work. has a new battery. and if you try again hours later it starts


Your starter solenoid is likely the cause of your intermittent starting problem.

The solenoid sometimes will develop an issue where it does not engage to allow current draw from the battery by the starter, which causes intermittent starting issues.

If you hear a "click", during the times that the engine will not turn over, this is the most likely culprit. Replacement of the starter will solve the issue.
