Hello first of all, I cannot hide my admiration towards this wonderful website and effort revealed inside it Thank U for all what u r doing here I have a problem with my Kia Sportage 2002 , the check...


Want to make remark: I think that Kia Sportage may have a manufacturer's defect w/ code 128 ( check engine light). I had two separate mechanics from two reputable dealers look and try to fix problem w/ my vehicle, but to no avail. I have yet to take it to Kia dealership near me because since the economic crisis the dealership has shown its true colors in my opinion. They are a bunch of ignoble characters who don't know how to treat their customers w/ respect.

Does the 2002 Kia Sportage have an noninterference engine or does it have an interference engine?


2002 Kia Sportage 2.0L dohc, is an interference engine, will cause piston to valve damage, Kia recommends timing belt replacement in California every 90,000 miles, except California every 60,000 miles, hope this was very helpful.

I HAVE A 2002 KIA SPORTAGE. IT STALLED ON ME.


Hello mrhbollinger: My name is Roger and I will help you. You did not say Exactly what happened. If you were driving down the road and the engine died? Or if you pulled up to a stop and the engine died? I would check a few things first. Does the engine have over 60,000 to100,000 miles on it? If so I would look at the timing belt as a problem. Check the compression Compression should be around 160 psi. Any thing less then a 100 psi. the cylinder will not fire. Also keep in mind that this engine is a interference engine. This means should the timing belt break. The engine will suffer severe internal engine damage. By that I mean any valve that was open when timing belt broke will be damaged. Piston damage will also accrue. If the timing belt is not th problem I would look at the fuel system you should have 43 psi at the test port.I would also test for spark at the spark plug wires. If you have none and you check spark first. Check compression to make sure the timing belt is not the problem. If you remove the oil cap and can see the the camshaft. Have some one crank the engine over. If the valves do not move the timing belt is the problem. Should you need further help please just ask Thank You for using Fix Ya. Roger

Timing belt broke on 1998 kia sportage, need the correct points


Hi, Just to clarify and clear things up, the motor used in the 1998 to 2002 Kia Sportage is actually the Mazda FE3 engine and it is a NON-INTERFERENCE engine.

For any an all repair information on any Kia vehicle produced you can access the KGIS system (Kia Global Information System), just go to www.kiatechinfo.com and create and account (its completely FREE). After you do this you will have access to all the Kia Shop Manuals, DTC Manuals, Recall information for your vehicle and more.

I just had the same problem with my Sportage and found all the information that I needed through KGIS. Hope this helps and good luck on fixing your Sportage.
