While driving at highway speeds Rodeo slows down and loses power. If you pump gas pedal car will slowly pick up speed after downshifting. Some days no problems other days this lack of power is constant. Rodeo has 150,000 miles and is a V6

    I really do not know as I bought in last 3 months used. Otherwise vehicle is clean and seems to be well cared for where would fuel filter be located and is it a easy fix to replace? Thanks

    Fuel cunsumption has been cut in half, thick black soot all over the tail pipe end. Will check filter this weekend. Will tank have to be dropped on this model?

    Just changed filter and has same problem, I did try to blow compressed air from engine to tank on the return line and it would not blow through even with gas cap off. Any suggestions?

    I guess i have to ask, when was fuel filter last replaced, for one. Secondly, has fuel pressure been tested?

1st check your breather pipe on the fuel tank as it could be blocked and not breathing air into tank
This will happen after filling up with fuel and untill you haved used about 1to 2 gallons.
Other wise check fuel pump for either slight air leak or filter blockage...

    Well the filter should be up onthe top of chassis and on the feed in line just before or in line with g/box but you will see it when you get under and look also while there check the breather tube.

Since you replaced the filter it sounds like a classic fuel pump problem. Don't know your car but best thing to do is buy a repair manual for your car like haynes or chilton's at your local AP store. Read up on it at the trouble shooting section and the RR section. Good luck.

2002 kia spectra has hard time picking up speed


I had the same problem. I changed my fuel filter too.Your catalytic converter is clogged. I could put the pedal to the floor board and couldnt hardly pick up any speed. I could hardly make up a hill on the highway. Take it to a kia dealership and they will, they should replace it for free, they did mine and I didnt have a warranty. I think there is a warranty on that specific part. That's what it is though.
