Question about 2005 Kia Sportage
Chances are you have bad gas. disconnect the fuel line at any point you can open the system. then turn on the ignition and pump out the gas from the tank into a gas container. replace the fuel connection back together and install 5 gallons of premium fuel with a fuel injector additive added to it. Then run the engine to operating temperature. This should fix the problem

How many miles, and have you had the fuel filter changed at all?
It could also be an O2 sensor. Try removing them. Tip should be a gray/tan color. If its green you have a blown head gasket.

Bank's is the left or right side of the engine. Bank 1 would be where the #1 spark plug side is and Bank 2 is where the #2 spark plug side. This term is used to better describe which side is which on an engine so as to not get confused to which side is which on a engine.
Thank you for using FIxya, what ever code's you have as a trim malfunction. It's indicating a Lean or rich condition on both sides of your engine, try cleaning your MAF sensor and inspecting it for any wire damages. This should fix your trim problem on both banks.

The code P0170 means that the air-fuel mixture coming in to the engine is too lean, or too rich. Usually it's the lean condition that causes this code. The code P0173 means the same, only for the Bank 2. Some car manufacturers list the description for the code P0170 as self adaptation out of limits.
The code P0170 could be caused by a number of reasons, such as vacuum leaks, bad PCV valve, or other parts of crankcase ventilation system, low fuel pressure, bad oxygen sensor, bad MAF sensor or even a bad EGR vlave.
