I am not very familiar with your particular engine, however, generally modern fuel injected engines have several components which could cause your problem. The EGR valves have a tendency to get carbon fouled, and can often be removed and cleaned. A cheap shop manual on your vehicle should describe how to do this. The idle air control valve can also get dirty or fail causing this problem. A bad O2 sensor is also possible, but it should trigger the check engine (or MIL) light on the dash. If the light stays on, get a parts store to read the codes for you. And lastly, a bad coolant temp sensor can make the computer think the engine is at an incorrect temperature, causing wrong fuel injection information. All except the O2 sensor may not cause the check engine light to turn on.

SOURCE: 2000 kia sportage trouble code po171 once in

I have 2005 Kia Sportage with a check engine light. No other symptoms. I was told by Kia and Local mechanic that it is the fuel injectors. Error Code states that Fuel injectors are running lean. Put Master airflow- no change. Ran engine test with propane to run rich and trim never changed from 15. Car runs great. Kia dealer said that this is because we use Ethel in gas that it effects the alumium fuel rail delivery to the injectors and that it is necessary to change all of them .Kia Dealer wants $1,000.00 deposit to place order 6 fuel injectors from Kia. (Has anyone heard of that?)Also put fuel injector cleaner in tank.Does anyone have any suggestions before I spend over $1,000.00 to replace all 6 injectors or possible idea of what could be wrong?

If it runs good in park or at idle but is slugish when you try to accelerate it is likely a fuel issue. I would start with a new fuel filter. When you press on the gas you need more fuel pressure and if the pump cant get more through the clogged filter you will get that. If it runs bad even at idle it is likely a spark issue and needs new plugs and wires. I would give it a good tune up - oil change, spark plugs (platinum or iridium), plug wires, air filter, fuel filter, PCV Valve and see how she runs after that.

Won't start unless spray fuel change fuel pump did'nt help when it starts idel rough throtle up slowly it go about 3000 rpm start trying to die if you floor it from idel it will die but spray fuel...


Then its got to be a problem with the fuel delivery. You need to check that you're getting fuel from the tank.


1) Does fuel get to the filter? If not, is there an airlock or debris in the fuel pipe
2) Does fuel get past the filter? - If not, replace the filter.
3) I'm not sure if you have a carb. or injectors, but one or more of the injectors could be blocked. If a carb., fuel inlet jet may be blocked.
4) Finally, is the air filter good and clean.

Dies after warms up can't idle


I would check the idle air control valve, this is what controls the idle, when your foot is not on the throttle.
