2001 Kia Sportage won't start

I have a 2001 Kia Sportage. It was running fine until 4 days ago when it just wouldn't start one morning.. The starter turns over but it will not start like it's not getting any gas. I changed the fuel pump with a brand new one, but it still won't start. I checked the fuse box and the one for the fuel pump is fine. Could it be the relay?

Kia sportage cranks but seldom starts??

Have you checked the fuel pump relay to see if it is sending power to the pump ? The computer grounds the relay when the computer "sees" oil pressure or engine RPM.

Stalls losing electric power

How old is the battery & have you tested it?
How is it that a month went by & your using
any vehicle that could let you down?
Why have all issues not been resolved ,as soon
as they started?
Have you checked for codes?
Have you had a professional scan tool on it
& checked data,that has to be done along with
many other checks or tests,unless it's just a battery
No one can solve any vehicle issue over the internet
There is always more to the story & you need the patient

2001 kia sportage automatic won't go out of park to drive-just got a new starter for it days ago because it wouldn't start-now this!

check you owners manual for the procedure to trip the interlock out so you can shift it

you probably have a bad or misadjusted interlock switch

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!
