    To clarify, you mean that it overheated and then quit running, right? How does it sound when cranking? Does it seem to crank like it used to, or does it crank noticably faster or slower? It's very possible you did some engine damage when it overheated.

It may have overheated to a point that damage was done to the engine. Have a trusted mechanic check it out. Good Luck.

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.

Need a little more info: Is it a V-6? Does it just die at random times? Kia has had problems with crank shaft position sensors. The vehicle will just die and may restart immediately or take several minutes till it will restart.

You have to install a new Thermostat because if the motor has no water pump thermostat sends all the coolant to the radiator and therefore the engine never warmed and you will not have heat because the coolant never be heated

2001 Kia Sportage won't crank.


It sounds like the timing was set incorrectly when the head/head gasket was replaced. The engine won't turn over very well if the Valves are smashing the Piston Heads. I would suggest trying to turn over the engine yourself while it is in neutral. Just connect a socket to the harmonic balancer, and use a big cheater pipe. If you can feel something stopping the engine from turning, then the timing was set incorrectly.

Have the radiator mounted fan checked.

It may not be turning on when the A/C is used.
