Question about 2006 Kia Sportage

2 Answers

Stalling while driving

I have Kia Sportage 2006. It likes to stall while I'm driving it. No problems with starting up. While driving the headlights will dim, dashboard lights will dim, radio will stop, etc. then the car dies. I replaced the alternator, timing & serpentine belts, water pump, battery, and crankshaft & camshaft sensors. I also had a tune-up, oil change, and a throttle body & fuel injection service with a idle re-learn. The car ran great for about 2 months and is now having the same symptoms. What is else is wrong?

Check your earth lead from the battery, Check the connection to earth. this could be shorting out causing the dimming and eventually stall.

Check your fuel filter and fuel tank breather. this could be starving the engien of fuel.

Have you checked alternator output when the problem starts ? Could be a wiring problem including the alternator circuit.

SOURCE: 2000 kia sephia constant engine stalling!!!

try this procedure and let me know if it cures the problem.

Here is the common cause of surges, stalls at stops, slow idle speed, erratic idle speed, rough idle and engine hesitation (and other problems), it is in most cases the idle speed control air-bypass valve and or throttle valve and upper intake, these area's get full of gunk and combustion residue over the miles and cause idle issues (stalls, low idle) like yours, Get a can of intake cleaner from any local parts store, not carb spray, intake cleaner, it is made by a company called CRC, remove the air intake hose to the engine, hold the idle high so the engine won't stall, then spray the can of cleaner into the intake while keeping the engine running, use at least 1/2 the can, shut down the engine and disconnect the battery for 5 minutes, then restart and complete a number of mixed driving cycles, town, freeway, stop and go etc., after a few days the problem will go away as the system will relearn to the clean intake.

SOURCE: I have a 2002 Kia Sportage - idle slow when stopping at lights

Even though the fuel filter and pump are easy to replace, I would start with the IAC sensor first. It is easier to get to and is cheaper than the other two if you can find one at a wrecking yard (should be around $20). This sensor is the Idle Air Control sensor, and the computer decides how much throttle to give at idle from the readings of the sensor. If it is bad your car will idle poorly or not at all.

You can verify this two simple ways:

1. Disconnect the sensor completely and see if anything changes. If you get the same issue, then it's probably the sensor. If different then it could be fuel delivery.

2. With it all hooked up; try throttling the engine yourself at 1000-1200 rpm and see if it is smooth. If it is then it is probably the sensor. If not then could be the fuel delivery.

The sensor is under the silver and black, plastic KIA cover over the engine (4 small nuts to remove), and is center above the engine on the front side of the intake pipe.

The part looks like this:

If it seems to still be fuel delivery, the filter is (facing the engine from the front of the car) down to the left and toward the back attached to the fender well (Just to the right of and below the battery)

Check the voltage coming out of the alternator with engine running it should be 13.0-14.7 volts.Usally when the battery light comes on the voltage is to low or not charging.If voltage is below 13.0 volts or higher than 15 volts then the alternator is faulty and will need to be replaced.

Car ideling roughly ...not stalling


sounds like you may have a problem with your Idle air control valve, located on the throttle body. this is what controls the idle when coming to a stop or stopped and turning corners or basically when your foot is not on the gas pedal

2000 KIA Sportage


Living in Thailand I had a lot of stalling problems. It started with my engine not running smooth when driving away cold. After half a km or so the car would just die or after even a longer distance stalling at full speed. Restarting worked and mostly I could drive on. Sometimes it would stall in a traffic jam.

Checked everything, but could not really put 1 and 1 together until I noticed that I was loosing a little cooling liquid and kept refilling on a regular basis. Found that every time this problem occurred also the cooling liquid was low again. Refilling the liquid solved the problem till the cooling liquid/water was low again. After fixing the actual leaking hose the problem disapeared totally. Later when my radiator started leaking slightly the problem came back as before. Now the car is fitted with a new radiator no problems like this anymore for more then 1 year.
I think the engine management system of the KIA is very sensitive for low water and maybe the temperature changes coming with it.

Maybe worth checking?
