2001 Kia Sportage runs rough

I own a 2001 Kia Sportage and when sitting at a red light, the car runs rough.When I accelerate, there is no miss, only when I'm stopped it runs rough. Could there be a vacum hose that came loose?

Hello, You can get a free scan at Autozone, Advance, or Oreillys. This will read what the "check" light is trying to tell you. All of the symptoms can be something the scanner can read. Check to see if your gascap is tight.

Changed timing belt on 2001 kia sportage but still runs rough


I would check the connectors on the coil packs, spark plugs and wires and replace them if they at all seem worn or tired. My 2000 sportage ran rough so I replaced the fuel filter, coil packs, spark plugs and wires, cleaned out the IAC valve, TPS, throttle body and intake tube, tightened the screws on the fuel pump access door under the right rear seat and cleaned the ground wire and the contact surface and I added 1 ground wire from the block to the firewall and 1 from the valve cover to the firewall. Your timing is more than likely right where it needs to be but the ignition may be slightly missing from a bad coil pack, dirty or fouled plugs or a bad plug wire.

Bad misfire at idle


Hi, you need to go and have the check engine light looked at. without look at the engine light i would guess that the egr valve is either plugged or bad. the engine light should give you a good idea of the problem.

Miss fires


Its very likely that its time for a tune up, also you should check the resistance of your ignition coils and if they are not within specs replace them. This same problem happen to my Sportage. Leave feedback. Rate this post.

Kia problem


You should get the codes checked and start from there. My Kia Sportage was also backfiring and running rough, after checking the codes. It had misfires on two cylinders. I did a tune up and had to replace one of the ignition coils. Now it runs great!
