I would check the connectors on the coil packs, spark plugs and wires and replace them if they at all seem worn or tired. My 2000 sportage ran rough so I replaced the fuel filter, coil packs, spark plugs and wires, cleaned out the IAC valve, TPS, throttle body and intake tube, tightened the screws on the fuel pump access door under the right rear seat and cleaned the ground wire and the contact surface and I added 1 ground wire from the block to the firewall and 1 from the valve cover to the firewall. Your timing is more than likely right where it needs to be but the ignition may be slightly missing from a bad coil pack, dirty or fouled plugs or a bad plug wire.

Don't think so. I believe there is just a fixed cam position sensor. but recheck the belt timing to make sure the slack did not make it a tooth off.

How do i set idle control it runs rough as hell


You can't it's controlled the PCM . Did check plugs an plug wires ,maybe you have a vacuum leak . Or jumped time , timing belt ,or timing chain ! Or you have an engine mechanical problem , burnt valve or something on that order ! Or a clogged fuel injector ! Test before you assume an replace parts ! You should have it checked for DTC'S - diagnostic trouble codes .

Where are the marks to put the timer belt in kia sportage 2001 i need to change the timer belt but i do not have manual to put the car in time


Once the belt is removed, turn the crank pulley clockwise until the pin on the crank nut lines up with the notch at the 12 o'clock position just above it. The intake cam needs to be rotated so the "I" on the pulley is at the 12 o'clock position and the exhaust cam needs to be rotated so the "E" on the pulley is at the 12 o'clock position, then install the belt and adjust tension. Use a 1/2" drive ratchet and I think a 21mm socket for the crank pulley and a 17mm wrench for the cam pulleys.

Kia problem


You should get the codes checked and start from there. My Kia Sportage was also backfiring and running rough, after checking the codes. It had misfires on two cylinders. I did a tune up and had to replace one of the ignition coils. Now it runs great!
