Question about 2000 Kia Sportage
Well as it is running I would start looking for either a vacuum in the wrong place or not hooked up at all and definately make sure all ground wires and back where they need to be but either way start with a big vacuum leak if no then it appears the throttle position sensor switch is most likely installed wrong or you need to do a complete TPS reset so it will re learn the proper idle speed also look to see that a wire or something else is not binding the throttle linkage forcing the rpms to high. Makes sure you start with the most likely reason then go from there. And If I can help further just ask

Yes there is a sensor that controls Fuel/air ratio.It's called a MAF (mass air flow sensor)
But I think you should have the EGR (Exhaust gas recirculation)valve checked
and The TPS (throttle position sensor)maybe dirty.
Although may things can cause this issue,I would look at the items above first.
Please rate this a blue fixya

Spluttering and missing is usually one of two things Fuel or spark ?
Fuel problems will be traced to 1/ in line fuel filters .. 2/ tank run low on petrol throwing dirt and grit into tank filter ( if Fitted ) and blocked or restricted injectors a good fuel additve sometimes cures that problem , but replacement is a far better option .
Poor spark plugs breaking down under preassure oiled plugs due to overfilling or incorrect fuel mixtures .. poor or cracked distributor caps dirty or damaged rotor arms in said cap .. leaking HT leads damaged by rubbing and contact with hot engine causing sparks to fly to nearest earth disrupting the spark and ignition timing ... hope this helps Regards vortash
