Possible timing belt ( if equipped ) broken. Possible fuel delivery issue ( fuel pump ) or possible ignition/no spark issue ( crank sensor ) to name a few

Kia sportage wont start wine over fuel pump works and still all it does is wine over

Just because fuel pump is running does not mean the pressure in the fuel rail is correct. Test pressure with fuel pressure gauge. Also insure you have spark to the plugs and that timing belt is not broken.

2002 Kia Sportage will not start. Ruled out the battery, alternater, spark plugs and wires, starter...wondering how to tell if it is the fuel pump or fuel filter.

Unhook the fuel line and turn the key. The spill under the motor will let you know if fuel is flowing. The alternative is to check the timing belt, if it is broke it will never try to start. The timing belt is behing all the belts on the front of mine that is a 4 x 4. The timing marks are above the cam pulleys and on top of the crank. It is a pain to do in the yard but it can be done, I did it.

2002 kia sportage wont start unless starting fluid is sprayed in, then runs fine for a couple of days, problem returns. shows no code


It sounds like you have a problem with the fuel system.

Check the fuel filter, fuel pump, pressure regulator and injectors.

Hope this helps

My car wont stay started when im trying to crank the engine?

If it turns over and almost seems to start I would inspect the timing belt by removing the top cover. It may need to be replaced due to damage or from becoming stretched and/or loose. Next I would check the fuel pump/fuel pump relay. If it will run for a few seconds then sputter and die, try replacing the fuel filter.

Not starting

if it was me before i spend a lot of money on parts i would go to my local library and get my hands on a Haynes auto repair manual for my truck because it could be the alternator,the drive belt or the timing off or the timing belt is broken or missing a tooth or the fuel pump or a plug fuel filter try these websites to see if you can get so information on your truck and i hope i have been some help to you Michigan Man.
