Most likely the fuel pump has quit. Check it by having someone turn the ignition key to the run position (just when dash lights light up) listen to the fuel tank from as close as possible. for the first 2 seconds you should hear a whining sound. If you don't... the pump is not working.

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.

Where is the ground wire in a 2007 Kia sportage lx


The main engine ground is found by tracing the negative battery cable to where it attaches to the engine. If the vehicle is not spinning over or does not even click when you try to start it, may be the starter is going bad. If all the dash lights come on when you turn the key then a ground is most likely good.

Burnt ground wire on fuel pump


Burnt ground wire can be caused by loose ground fitting (not screwed in tight to the frame or body). Ground wire too small or ground wire connected to an anti-theft alarm system which use small wire, 10 gauge wire should be used on fuel pump ground.
If you have a lot of miles on your car, use a 5-40 synthetic oil, this will help oil comsumption.
