Many of the Kia sportages have a problem with the coils.

There are 2 coils for each 2 cyl and they are located under the middle platic cap on the valve cover.

These coils will set a check engine light that blinks when misfiring and stays on steady when the motor is running smooth. Autozone or Advance auto have a scanner that can check all engine functions and will show a problem with # 2 and 4 cyl.

The coil packs are $39.00 to replace but check the codes first

Have the radiator mounted fan checked.

It may not be turning on when you use the A/C.

You most likely have air in the cooling system.You would need to bleed the cooling system of air.There should have bleed screws near water neck,or thermostat.Do this cold.Remove the radiator cap and fill full.Then start the engine and loosen the screws and watch for nothing but coolant to flow out(no air or bubbles).When you are sure the air is gone out of the cooling system,shut the bleeder screw off,and fill radiator up and test to see that engine runs cool,and you have heat at all speeds and rpm s.The electric cooling fan should come on at a tempuratue of about 215 or so.But just as important,the cooling fan should cut off at a lower tempurature.If the cooling fan does not do this,you still have air in the system.If you can not get the air out this way,then do this.Remove the radiator cap and reservoir cap and fill them both up full.The reservoir needs to be over the fill mark a good deal.Replace the caps.Start the engine with ac and heat off.Let it run until the engine gets to about 212 or 215 degrees and shut the engine off.Wait about 30 minutes and check the reservoir to see if the coolant has dropped.It should have dropped.If the reservoir has dropped or not ,do this again and again untill the reservoir drops in coolant level,and engine temp is good(fan goes on and goes off).Remember to refill the reservoir as needed as it drops,not to run out of coolant.

2003 Kia Sedona what is the RPM supposed to idle aton cold start an in warm weather


Idle speed depends on a number of factors; for instance it may idle faster when the air conditioner is on. Instead of a fixed idle speed, as in the old cars, the engine computer sets the speed to whatever is needed to run any accessories and maintain smooth operation, but generally not more than that. That's under normal circumstances. There are several failure modes that cause erratic idle speed; usually the engine will also run roughly.

Will defective vaccum hoses on front axle effect the way the engine runs on a 2000 kia sportage?


Vacuum leaks work like this. A small hose breaks, you don't notice a engine problem, but the gas mileage goes down a bit. As the leak progresses, mileage goes down more. A large leak you notice the engine runs rough at idle. Combine this with clogged air, fuel filters and clogged catalytic converters and it will start killing the engine at stops and eventually go down the road. But to answer your question, No the line going to the diff, wont affect the engine performance. Because the PCM will compensate for the small leak. More fuel.

2004 Kia Optima idles rough when AC on; idles fine when AC off -- what is the problem?


Putting on the AC causes power to be taken from the engine, and that is quite usual (unless it's taking excessive power but if there are no noises and it's working ok that's unlikely).
That will slow down the engine (similar to switching on your heated rear window whilst idling)
What you are seeing is the idle is probably a bit slow, and it's too slow with AC on. Have a diagnostic run to check idle speed and mixture at low revs.

Some makers used Vacuum releases for their emergency brakes which had a Vacuum switch connected to the shift assembly. This would account for a stumble if Vacuum vented out through this switch.

More common for shifting stumble to occur from Park to Drive, engaging a load on the engine, not to stumble to a freewheeling Park position. Sounds like idle speed control is sluggish to stabilize the motor.

You also have idle speed control problem with A/C, kind of shows that A/C was what kept the engine running because when you turned the A/C off, the car died.

I am going to give you some Websites for wiring diagrams. Alldatadiy.com amd Autozone.com with free wiring info upon registering your vehicle.

It seems that the base Idle speed control is not working and the A/C idle speed control is.

Also check for Vacuum leaks on the intake manifold by spraying water from a pumpbottle on the seams of the gaskets.

Check ignition Relay or ignition switch for random cutouts. The fusebox layout is on the Autozone site.

I hope my solution helps.

Engine speed decrease when stert the AC


IDLE AIR CONTROL VALVE IDLE SPEED TOO LOW. IDLE SPEED SHOULD BE 750 - 850 RPM. IDLE SPEED NEED TO BE CORRECT OR IT WILL CAUSE ENGINE RUN ROUGH OR STALL OUT.AC COMPRESSOR WILL TAKE SOME POWER FROM ENGINE WHEN AC IS OPERATING.

Does anyone have a helpful diagram or explanation where the coil packs are located on a 2000 kia sportage?


Hi there!It sounds like you may have a problem with the idle speed control actualtor.This unit adjusts air to air fuel mixture.Sometimes it can get covered with carbon and not work correctly.Try taking it off and cleaning it good with some carb cleaner.Then reinstall it and see if the performance is any better.If it is then you should replace it.Here is some info,hope it helps!Thanks It is the intake air control valve in the diagram below.
The idle speed control actuator maintains idle speed according to various engine loads and conditions. This component also provides additional air during startup. It consists of an opening coil, a closing coil and a permanent magnet. According to the control signals from the ECM, the valve rotor rotates to control the bypass air flow into the engine.

Kia Sportage 2003 - Solenoid Valve


This sounds like the idle air control valve. This valve sits on the inlet manifold and basicly regulated the flow of air for tickover( or idle). The usual operation of this valve is, when the engine is running at high speed the valve will be closed, when the engine comes down to idle, the main throttle butterfly will shut as you lift your foot off the pedal. The idle valve will open and give a small amound of air to the engine, just enough to run it at idle speed. These valves can stick open, therefore letting air in when the throttle is open, giving the engine too much air. WD40 is only a temporary repair untill it jams again. Best course of action is to have part replaced.
