Will defective vaccum hoses on front axle effect the way the engine runs on a 2000 kia sportage?


Vacuum leaks work like this. A small hose breaks, you don't notice a engine problem, but the gas mileage goes down a bit. As the leak progresses, mileage goes down more. A large leak you notice the engine runs rough at idle. Combine this with clogged air, fuel filters and clogged catalytic converters and it will start killing the engine at stops and eventually go down the road. But to answer your question, No the line going to the diff, wont affect the engine performance. Because the PCM will compensate for the small leak. More fuel.

2001 kia sportage engine light flashing, car spuddering and rough idle


Hello, You can get a free scan at Autozone, Advance, or Oreillys. This will read what the "check" light is trying to tell you. All of the symptoms can be something the scanner can read. Check to see if your gascap is tight.

It is a 1997 sportage and it is duel fuel but when i pop it over to fuel it runs really rough like it is coughy and spluterry and when it is on idle it stalls but it dosent die when the revs are kept up


Many Kia Sportages of this model year have this problem. The first thing is to clean the throttle postion sensor. If that doesn't remedy then the MAF (mass air flow) sensor will need to be replace. This controls the fuel air mixture. Thanks for using Fixya.

Bad misfire at idle


Hi, you need to go and have the check engine light looked at. without look at the engine light i would guess that the egr valve is either plugged or bad. the engine light should give you a good idea of the problem.

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!
