Question about 2001 Kia Sportage
You may have a faulty O2 sensor. Many auto parts stores will read your cars computer error codes for free, as a courtesy, with a hand-held scanner if you ask them. This would be your first step in determining the cause for the "Check Engine" light.
If it is an O2 sensor, sensor 1(upstream sensor) can be accessed from under the hood on the drivers side, just after the exhaust manifold, and before the catalytic converter. Sensor 2(downstream sensor) is after the converter, and can be seen from this location, it can be accessed from under the car. I highly recommend purchasing the socket made for sensor removal.(About $10.00) Spray with a bolt loosen-er, and make sure to let the car cool down completely before attempting removal!
The sensors are a little over $100.00 each at a parts store, but if you look around the internet you can find them for less than half that price.
