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.

1999 kia sportage starts sometimes,has new battery,starter.you can take it to work,it sets all day,you get off work and it wont start . the engine will turn over but will not fire. never know if it starts...


Hi,
I am sorry for the delayed response as i was not at my desk.
Be advised that as i do not have any luxury to examine your car myself, i cannot provide legitimate 2nd opinion, however would be able to add few inputs to the question you posted.
I am assuming that there is no check engine light being ON. If you could see check engine light being ON, you need to take the car to the nearest auto zone center and get it scanned without any charge. You could forward the codes to me and i would be able to follow up.
Though this is a common problem on 98 and 99 models.The most common concern on SPORTAGE for doing that is fuel pump. Checking the fuel pressure when the car would not fire, is a good way to verify if it is the pump for sure. Checking the fuel pressure would would verify that the pump is actually being turned ON. The other suspect could be crankshaft position sensor. A lot of times, when the car is cranking and there is no tachometer movement that indicates a faulty crank sensor. When cranking the rpms should read about 200 - 400.
To check the fuel pressure, you need to buy a fuel pressure guage and it gets installed onto the front of the fuel rail on the engine.
There are few other details that we need to diagnose later on once we would eliminate the major causes.
Let me know,once done.
Hope i helped you.
Thanks for using ' Fixya ' and have a nice day!!

2001 kia sportage just died on hiway, any suggestions on what might be wrong?


3 THINGS WILL CAUSE CAR TO SHUT OFF ON HIGH WAY.LIKE ALTERNATOR - FUEL PUMP - SPARK IGNITION COIL OR MODULE.FIRST OF ALL IF YOU HAVE DASH LIGHTS AND HEAD LIGHTS.ALTERNATOR OKAY YOU GETTING POWER.LISTEN FOR FUEL PUMP TURN ON IGNITION SWITCH ENGINE OFF LISTEN TO HEAR FUEL PUMP RUNNING IN GAS TANK.IF YOU HEAR NO PUMP RUNNING IN GAS TANK.CHECK FUEL PUMP FUSE AND RELAY.BOTH CHECKED OUT GOOD MORE LIKELY FUEL PUMP AT FAULT.IF FUEL PUMP RUNNING CHECK FOR SPARK AT PLUGS.IF NO SPARK.CHECK IGNITION FUSE.IF FUSE GOOD YOU COULD HAVE PROBLEMS IN THE PCM SINCE IT CONTROLS SPARK IGNITION SYSTEM.

My 2000 sportage will start sometimes and some times it just turns over. let it set for a while and it will start. is it the fuel pump??


That is what you have to determine. Do you have fuel pressure? Hopefully the fuel filter hasn't been on since 2000. If it starts and you can drive it and it runs okey,you have eliminated spark,for the most part. What kind of voltage,do you get across the battery terminals, when running. The fuel pump could be bound mechanically. Have you checked for stored codes? Your best bet ,is to have the entire vehicle scanned with a professional scanner and get all issues resolved at once.
