If there is fuel in the gas tank, I would remove the bolts holding the upper section of the timing belt cover and pry it back carefully to look for a stretched, broken or damaged belt. If it looks good and snug on the pulleys, then I would replace the fuel pump relay and the main relay and check the fuel pump connectors are properly connected and for a good ground wire and make sure the screw is tightened securely to a good, clean surface that is properly grounding the fuel pump and replace the fuel filter if it was not done with the pump

U have a 98 kia sportage 2.0 replaced fuel pump. i do have fire but im not getting any fuel to the injectors. i can spray stuff in the air intake and it will stay running as long as im spraying it in but...

First thing you need to do is measure the fuel pressure while it's running. If there is none, then check the fuel pump fuse and relay. It's also possible that the new pump is bad. If it is, suggest getting an OEM pump as the aftermarket ones are usually of lesser quality and it's not a job you want to repeat right away.

1998 kia will not start need to know where the fuel pump is locat

there is a fuel filter in the tank and next to the engine block on the passenger side near the firewall. the fuel pump can be reached by folding up the back seats and pulling up the carpet flap under it there will be a plate secured by four screws after removing there are a few screws holding on the sending unit which contains the fuel pump. how many miles are on the kia? it could be the timing belt they tend to break if not replaced every 60k and altho guides say so this is not an interference engine meaning if u line it all up and put a belt on i will run again trust me mine did
