SOURCE: runs & idles rough has no power when cold gets better when warm

Spluttering and missing is usually one of two things Fuel or spark ?
Fuel problems will be traced to 1/ in line fuel filters .. 2/ tank run low on petrol throwing dirt and grit into tank filter ( if Fitted ) and blocked or restricted injectors a good fuel additve sometimes cures that problem , but replacement is a far better option .
Poor spark plugs breaking down under preassure oiled plugs due to overfilling or incorrect fuel mixtures .. poor or cracked distributor caps dirty or damaged rotor arms in said cap .. leaking HT leads damaged by rubbing and contact with hot engine causing sparks to fly to nearest earth disrupting the spark and ignition timing ... hope this helps Regards vortash

SOURCE: Does the 2001 Kia Sportage have a fuel sending module?

Take it back and DEMAND that they restore your car to the previous fuel mileage....NO CHARGE! If they balk take them to small claims (it's cheap and you'll win) because they are trying to sell you a "pig in a polke"! I'm a retired Journeyman mechanic....and what they are telling you is the biggest sack 'o you 'no what.....Iever heard. Good luck to you.

you can get a new temp gauge sender unit and install it
bleed the air out of the cooling system by loosening off the highest point hose
have a compression test done to check for head gasket or cracked head
take it to an accredited radiator specialist and have a flow test done on the radiator
it is possible that the cores are blocked and it needs repalcing

Engine overheated because of radiator hose clamp loose (5 Minutes) Loss of engine power after +- 2 weeks Suspect head gasket or damaged vacuum signal rubber piping near engine block Kia Sportage 2000


5 minutes is a long time to drive a car with no coolant. Does the engine run rough, or miss? Or is it just sluggish and low on power? If it got hot enough, there could be permanent damage to the engine. Overheating can cook the engine oil into a gummy sludge and loses it;s lubricating properties.Check for signs of coolant in the oil. That would indicate a head gasket failure or a cracked head.

Please tell your Mom not to buy this car. These vehicles are poorly designed, and are prone to frequent failures. A Toyota RAV4 or a Honda CR-V would be a far better choice.

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!
