I have a 2000 KIA sportage and recently I smell gas while driving. I park on the driveway and couldn't see any leaks anywhere but when I park in the garage, the entire garage smell of gas for the longest time. Can you tell me what seems to be the problem and how do I fix it?

I had a pinhole develope in the bottom of the gas tank in my 99 Sportage. I had similar symptoms, could not find the leak because the insulation in the skid plate under the gas tank was soaking it up. There was a recall on some of the Sportages for this problem. You can give you VIN number to a Kia dealer and they can check or you can contact Kia directly. You might be able to get it repaired free of charge.

check the idle air control valve. if that's faulty, it can cause such symptoms as described. if that's OK. do check the transmission oil. if it's low or there's a leak, causes problems as well. I hope this helps.

Symptoms 2000 kia sportage Symptoms 2000 kia sportage does not do all the time. Starts runs well but driving road 50mph almost as if ignition shut off split 2nd. Stop car and while running in drive s

Some makers used Vacuum releases for their emergency brakes which had a Vacuum switch connected to the shift assembly. This would account for a stumble if Vacuum vented out through this switch.

More common for shifting stumble to occur from Park to Drive, engaging a load on the engine, not to stumble to a freewheeling Park position. Sounds like idle speed control is sluggish to stabilize the motor.

You also have idle speed control problem with A/C, kind of shows that A/C was what kept the engine running because when you turned the A/C off, the car died.

I am going to give you some Websites for wiring diagrams. amd with free wiring info upon registering your vehicle.

It seems that the base Idle speed control is not working and the A/C idle speed control is.

Also check for Vacuum leaks on the intake manifold by spraying water from a pumpbottle on the seams of the gaskets.

Check ignition Relay or ignition switch for random cutouts. The fusebox layout is on the Autozone site.

I hope my solution helps.

Check around the fuel pump and make sure none of the hose are leaking. Some pumps have an open space for venting. It often will stay moist in that area.

Smell of gas while driving

If you smell gas while driving, check for leaks first.
Look under the chassis near the gas filler neck. Check under the hood for raw gas odor around the engine. If your hoses are not leaking, your car may need a tuneup. It could be burning too rich.
