2001 kia sportage hard to crank when it does it smell like it's flooded after a bit it may cut off could it be the tempture sensor

When u smell the fuel, that means its not burning via spark plugs. It sounds like u may be losing spark for some reason. If it ONLY happens cold or ONLY the sensor may be involved. Sounds like a spark loss. Good luck

if it is cranking over but not starting could be anything
fuel or electronic spark related

if the engine light on ..there will be fault codes
a 2105 kia sportage will need a diagnostic scanner to narrow down the no start problem

My 1999 kia sportage cranks but will not start

check all fuses are good then if you have some intake cleaner or brake cleaner where the hose from the airfilter goes to the motor shoot some in the intake through the hose and does it start up this means fuel problem 80% points to fuel pump located in the rear under the back seatsthere is a little piece of carpet in a square just lift it up and remove the 4 screws this gives you access to fuel pump if it doesnt start no fire spark you have to test for spark from the coils under the intake remove cover and test if spark and fuel ok timing belt jumpped good luck

2001 Kia sportage crank but won't start

Make sure you're getting spark at the spark plugs. You can do this by arching the plug to the engine block Just Google "how to test spark plugs". If there is a spark then it could be your timing, which is what happened to my wife's car, once we replaced everything, this was the final thing which solved her problem.

My 1999 Kia Sportage won't start. I put a new fuel pump in replaced the car battery . Need help please...

Im dealing with a similar situation. But have found that I have no spark. By opening the end of the air intake and giving a little squirt of starter fluid and no start. Opened access to FP and pulled a hose. No fuel. So no fuel no spark. reading lots and lots of forums I have come to the conclusion it is either the Cam or the Crank sensor. The crank sensor is easier to get to and cheaper. I am going to check that first.
