Question about 1996 Kia Sportage

1 Answer

Kia sportage jerks and hesistates to take off

I have a 1996 kia sportage (manual)that after driving for about 15 minutes, starts jerking/hesistating when taking off from a stop light, it also tries to die while idling. I have replaced the fuel filter, checked the vacumm line for cracks, and put in a new air filter and the problem is still there. I am going to put in a new fuel pump and spark plugs but think the problem might be with the throttle control sensor, any ideas would be helpful as to what it might be.

    I had the computer read which came up with low pressure reading, so I recently put in a new fuel pump, the check engine light went out after this, it drove great for a week with no jerking or hesistation. But after a week, it started jerking again and the check engine light is back on. I am not sure where to go from here, I will have the computer read again to see if the same thing comes up but I still thinking it might be the throttle position censor, any ideas?

The pump should do the trick but check the throttle plate.

Was jerking when running for last yr. now will not run at all.....


Did you address the jerking issue or just keep driving with the jerking until it died?

The jerking and the fact that your car will not run at all now appears to be tied into the ignition system. (spark plugs, distributor cap, ignition coils, ignition wires, timing belt, etc)
