Question about 2001 Kia Sportage

2 Answers

My Kia 2001 seems to hesitate when the car is standing still for example at a stop light. If you tap on the gas the first time it will **** a little and then the 2nd time it will move forward no problem. I have already changed the spark plugs. What else could be the problem?

Probably air flow meter problem. Their are either two or three of them along the air intake. Try cleaning the inside of them. It could also be the small vacuum pipes from the intake check these for leak's or crack's. Cheer's

Well it sounds like your mass airflow sensor is failing. That's where I would start looking and if you have a check engine light take it to your local auto parts store and they can check it for free and I would bet it will fault the MAS

I have a 2001 kia sportage. the check engine light is on and when i try to accelerate the light blinks on and off and it hesitates and won't speed up. it will actually slow down. I can drive it around town...


I would have the timing belt checked,do not drive it until you have this checked,if the timing belt jumps to much it will bend the valves in the head and cost a lot of money.,other than this a major tune up maybe the problem,coil boots and spark plugs.I have a pdf manual for this car if you contact me,roniecon@gmail.com

Today my check engine light came on, and it also seemed like my car was hesitating -- I was driving about 60 mph on the highway when I noticed it. I've read online about the gas cap/CEL connection, but...


Hi:
usually the loose gas cap won't affect your driveability too much. I would stop by an auto parts store and get your codes scanned free, to determine what tripped the light. That way you will know for sure what turned the light on.

2001 Kia Optima - Stalls, hesitates,or works just fine!


I'd look for a vacum leak if the check engine light is not on. A good trick for this is while the engine is running take a propane torch, turn it on but dont light it. move it around in the engine compartment and when you get close to the vacume leak the engine will rev higher.

Yes my frend open the bonnet and stand infront of the car, on the left hand side between the engine and the boddy there is a black round container with pipes going into it. next to the container there is a vacume switch, 99% of the time this pipes going into the switch is brohen or the pipe is leaking.
